    Today I decided to try remove the left rear side panel from the donor load body. Got it successfully removed with even the little spot weld indents undamaged. I then removed the damaged panel from the Pumas load body.

    I also removed the bulkhead from another donor load body, which I want fit to the Pumas load body (goes between the cab and rear load area). Time to take a break, had enough of drilling out spot welds for one day.😁

    To be continued tomorrow....

    Don't forget to use high quality seam sealer when you finally fit the new panel to the body.

    That looks good, maybe also get some brushable seam sealer if you want to make 100% sure you are getting full coverage over the seams after the panel has been fitted, also to touch up existing seams on the underbody or loadbin etc.

    It's amazing the difference enthusiastic application of hi quality seam sealer makes 10-20yrs down the line, especially in areas prone to sitting water.

    Last weekend I did the last few things left to do on the Landy cave and moved in.
    This week I didnít work on the Landy due to the my neck injury from the small accident on Monday.

    Iím feeling much better so this morning when Swambo went to town, I sneaked out, straight to the Landy cave. I worked on the rear bulkhead, which I previously removed from a donor load body.

    I marked out and cut the panel and got it to fit. Will get brush-able seam sealer tomorrow and rivet the panel in. By the time Swambo got back, I was back in bed, as if Iíve been there all day.😂

    I haven't updated this thread for some time due to this happening: https://www.4x4community.co.za/forum...day?highlight=

    Well, that's all sorted out and back on the road. So it's a new year and time to get started on my D/C again, hopefully this time without any unplanned interruptions.😀

    So December I'm planning on visiting Baviaanskloof and Gamkaskloof and I've decided to go in the..... D/C Puma. Yes, this one. Hope I'm not biting off more than I can chew, I guess time will tell. Gonna give it a bash and see if I can have this Landy ready and on the road come December.

    Planning on getting the most challenging job done first, and that, to me, is replacing the firewall. So at the moment I'm preparing the new firewall for painting, once painted, I'll remove the damaged firewall and fit the new.

    Will update the thread and post photos soon.

    Tonight I used 600 grit water paper to ďflatĒ the new firewall in preperation of spray painting it tomorrow. I also used a heat gun and thinners to remove what was left of the foam/seal at the top of the firewall where the windscreen frame rest on the firewall.

    Iíll take it to the workshop tomorrow morning and if all goes well, it will be Land Rover Corris Grey by tomorrow afternoon and then the fun can start removing and replacing the firewall.

    Firewall painted! And Iím very happy with the result and the color I chose.

    Used a medium hardener as it provides a higher quality finish than a fast hardener, so the paint will take a bit longer to cure, so Iím gonna leave it Ďtil Monday before I take it home.

    I may just start removing the old firewall over the weekend, so by Monday I can start fitting the new one.

    Have to keep going now while Iím on a roll!😂

    Small problem. I think I just discovered the 2.2 firewall is different to the 2.4.
    And I think my new firewall is off a 2.4, because where there should be a hole, there isn’t one....
