ID:	580035Someone had already galv the frame, so i cleaned it, sprayed it with "CONVERUST RC900", it turned a little purple, but looked authentic and old, so i left it like that. New safety glass window, the chap at GLASFIT, would not believe that this was a windscreen for a motor-vehicle, not an essential service during lockdown, so i had to show him pics of old Land Rovers, before he would do the job.

    Decided to install Defender door mirrors, instead of the small chrome jobbies.

    Replaced the Series 2 gearbox with Series 3 full syncro box, they look the same but have small differences, for example, the clutch slaves are diff. Click image for larger version.

    Had to wait till stage 3 lockdown to get the right part. Wasted a lot of time, due to not having a clue of the differences in the various Landi models.
    But i'm better now.

    Un-believable, my original rear diff was off-set to the left (standing behind the vehicle), the SWB prop, would never reach and have an acute angle. So i had to source another, folks in KZN don't know where the left off-set diff comes from. As can be seen, the transfer case and front diff is to the right ??

    Diffs are upside down in the pic, but you get my drift. Had to re-position the leaf-spring mounts inwards to suit. One step forward, another back.

    So they flipped the axle and reinstalled the center portion?

    I really wonder why that was done?

    It was my thoughts exactly!

    Well done zuluboy, for someone that "doesn't know the different Landi models" you have done a remarkable job! It's obviously not your first rodeo.
