I'm excited to wheel the dang thing! I wouldn't go so far as to call it 'nice'... Decent, pretty awesome, cool. All those work, but some of the 40s I've seen in the club are NICE.

It's crazy that the black spray in the tub paint comes right off and the original mustard paint doesn't even scratch with the wire wheel.

Head size is the biggest reason. M8's have a 12mm head (instead of 13) and M10's have a 14mm head (instead of 15).

I don't know if you can get stainless at AAA metric for the JIS hardware. Last time I checked their inventory was all zinc-plated. But Ace and Jax have a small supply of standard metric stainless IIRC.

Brush on Hammered Rustoleum in black; dries dark grey, but looks good! Just have to pull the cage and cut some rusty bolts on the jump seat and the gas tank cover, and I'll do the rest.

Got a Suzuki rear bench or the kids. $30, exponentially safer.

You've got some filler in the DS rear quarter where the spare swing should be. Probably worth a magnet hunt to see what else might be going on.

The holes are for gas can carriers. I have a set on my PS tub side behind the fuel filler.

I have a big coffee can of JIS hardware off a red 60 if you need something.

nice rig!

Theres that dude on 'mud that puts together bolt kits you could talk to.

Otherwise I'd take spectre6000 up on the offer to provide a few bolts from the 60 strip down. I have been putting my 40 together and taking it apart lately and am drawing from a big tub of bolts from a 60 that was stripped. Been super handy. if you have some in particular you are looking for and are closer to me than him you could come scavenge. I'll be sending a ton off to be replated over in broomfield soon too.

Alright Spectre, I'll bring up the tranny and transfer parts from Tim's house and grab that hardware. Basically 100% is missing, rusted, or broken off in the threads. Two birds, one stone. Be sure to pull any you for sure need. I'm not reassembling until next weekend probably, so plenty of time to work it out... Still have to cut out some stuck bolts and paint some more. You come down the mountain to work right? What side of town? I think I'm going to need body mounts too, one spins. The one I want to use to mount the rear bench, otherwise I'd ignore it until welding up the areas of rot in the floor....

Euro, you can drive it anytime your heep isn't running brother! Convenient offer now that you're back on the road, lol.

Thanks Rover67. Good to see another LR convert. I'll hit you up if I need to.

Jerrycans on both sides? Maybe in Africa.

Cheers,
Matt
