Hi Dorsetsmith,

Yes she is happy enough with it but she usually travels up front.
Sandy is over 13 years old so she needs a lift to get in anything on wheels!

I got back on the tools today and managed to get both wings and inner wings off.
It looks like I'll be busy with lots of cleaning and painting to be done.

I have a few queries that maybe you could help me with.

On both sides the inner wing had an extra piece ice riveted on. Is this correct or has a piece of the wing been cut away in the past to get to the footwell.

I came across this gadget on the drivers side inner wing. Any idea what it is?

The heater air intake in the wing just butted up against the heater box. Should there be a flexi pipe between the intake and the heater?

Also the engine air intake in the wing was not connected to the air filter. I guess I'm missing some ducting?

The inner wing on the passenger side had a rubber flap on the rear under the heater box.
Do I need one on the drivers side as well?

Thanks for any advice you can offer.

On your inner wings, it looks like somebody has made some mud shields, much like the Glyn Lewis ones that you can buy:

The gadget on the drivers side inner wing is the resistor for the dim/dip headlights. It serves no useful purpose and can be bypassed by linking pin 2 to pin 8 of the socket for the associated relay.

Yes, that's the 'closer' (MUC9704) and there should be one on each side.

Lots of great progress with the strip down. I agree with LRA about the Gywn Lewis style add on mud shields.. A good mod when you get round to putting it back together Thumbs Up 1993 200Tdi Defender 90

Does this help with your air intake?

A bit more progress today. I managed to get the bulkhead out onto the floor. I only had a few seized bolts/screws and two captive nuts that spun on the bolt. Everything else came apart quite easily with a bit of patience and common sense.
I hope it all goes back together without too much grief.

I had some plywood lying around so I cut two templates to give something to use to locate the replacement bulkhead.
Maybe they are not necessary but I reckon that I had nothing to lose.

I need to compare the bulkheads now before the new one goes to the spray shop and I have lots of cleaning and painting to do to keep me occupied.

Picked up the bulkhead from the spray shop today so ready to begin reassembly.
The painter had it since Dec 20th but every job that came in seemed to have priority over my few bits.
I had hoped to be back on the road by now but I may fit the work in between the usual house and garden maintenance that goes on every summer.
