    Thanks, Bolt Masters in Brisbane sell solid rivets I bought some off them when I did my door tops about 5 years ago , I will give them a try 1st. I also have some here but the shaft is about 1/2" long & they have gone hard but I think if I cut them down to length the rivet I made will squash them.
    I am also going to try pop rivets that are longer so they don't have as much grip .

    Wind had drooped a little this morning , so gave the door its new top coat before going to watch grand son playing AFL. Then off to Clark Rubber to buy some rubber for the doors & tub.
    IMAG2174.jpgIMAG2175.jpg Also painted the clamping strips for the door rubbers. After lunch I cut the rubber I am going to fit to the floor of the tub . IMAG2178.jpg I am not sure weather to glue the rubber down or use some alum flat around the edges painted black . I will cut the rubber were the spare tire fits after iI have secured it. I am leaning towards using the alum flat that way if I need to replace it at any stage or go back to painted finish it will be easier.
    I also re fitted the rubber blocks on the bonnet for the spare tire IMAG2177.jpg The bonnet is a bit busty from sanding the filler on the door. These blocks are secured with screws & nuts so applied thread lock to the screws. A friend of mine the nuts vibrated off his & fell down beside the spark plug. When he pulled the plugs out it fell into the motor & he didn't realize . When he started the motor he had a rattle & after removing the head & damaged piston he found the nut crushed the ring grove . We managed to get the the ring out with out braking it , machined the grove refitted the rings & all was good.

    Late this afternoon I refitted the galv capping & used the longer pop rivets to secure it. IMAG2179.jpg & all is good no crackingI need to go & get my larger pop rivet gun from the workshop before fitting the door seals then I will bolt the doors back on & fit the alum Solid rivets in the top of the capping it will be easier. Mothers day tomorrow so no LR work until Monday but that will give the paint a good chance to harden.

    Has not been a very productive day , I wrote a list of small jobs to do . The 1st job was to cut some rubber sheet to put on floor of tool box then put all the tools back into the box. IMAG2181.jpg
    Next was off to Trade Tools to buy a larger Pop Rivet gun as the two i have are not larger enough , all they had was the same as I already have, Then of to the bolt Co to get a 30 1/4" BSF bolts & nuts , nill in stock , I bought all they had 9 months ago, they could order some in but I will have to buy 100 @ $180 each, NO THANKS. Off to other bolt Co I have bought from , same answer. Now I am off to Bunnings to get 1/2 met of sheet rubber to make some floor mats , none in stock , will be in in 2 weeks. Next stop was to get a price to replace the sliding joint on my front prop shaft. OMG $400 I think it can go back in as is , it is not vibrating that much.
    Depressed I head home only to find I had miss placed my phone , so retraced my steps until i found it. It didn't matter about the phone I was getting a new one tomorrow but I would have lost all the contact numbers & photo's stored in it. On the way home again I decided to call into my old business & borrow one off them , I spent about 1/2hr looking in all the tool cages with out success . The foreman said that it may have been dumped .
    On getting home I etched primed some alum flat bar to use as clamping plated for the rubber mat I put in the tub. Then looked through all the old bolts I had dis guarded when I pulled Landy apart. I managed to find 16 in usable condition just enough to bolt the doors back on. I cleaned them up , primed them & when dry sprayed them silver. After they dryed i bolted the doors back on.
    IMAG2183.jpgIMAG2184.jpg Won't get much done tomorrow , off to buy a new phone ,, my old one is starting to give me the poo's & still have to find Pop rivet gun to pull the large rivets .

    SOME DAYS IT IS NOT WORTH GETTING OUT OF BED

    Little bit of work done this afternoon. !st job was to refit the lap sash seat belts , ( not approved but better than none at all.IMAG2186.jpg

    2nd job was to fit some sealing rubbers on the doorsIMAG2187.jpgIMAG2188.jpg

    3rd job was to give Landy a wash, forgot to take photo .
    I am hoping to take her to National Motoring Heritage Day Picnic In Queens Park Ipswich on Sunday so started setting up a display A board IMAG2189.jpgIMAG2191.jpg I will see what photo's I have that I can put on the top of the board in the last photo.

    Will take her for a run tomorrow afternoon & get some fuel & pump up the tires. Will also need to adjust the timing as I have had the distributor out when I painted the motor & the way the motor is turning over sounds like it is too far advanced.

    I took Landy for a run yesterday afternoon , she is running sweet . With the new carby seams to have more power & running smoother . There still seams to be a problem with the gear box , when I pull it into 2nd gear there is a grating noise , not the usual noise noise it is after the gear has been selected & if I pull back on the gear leaver while driving it makes the same noise . Does any one have any Ideas? It is as though two gears are just touching when the leaver is pulled all the way back.

    First/second or (more likely) reverse fork not clamped tightly on the selector shaft? Or (unlikely) bent.

    I was just looking at the work shop manual I may need to addust the 2nd speed stop. That will need the floor pulling out again , should be able to adjust it through the plate on the gear box top just behind the oil filler. BUGGER

    A couple more photo's IMAG2222.jpgIMAG2225.jpgIMAG2220.jpgIMAG2221.jpg

    The numbers were down on previous years but it was a good day & a good run for Landy her 1st run for almost 2 years . There were other cars that did nor interest me so I didn't bother taking photo's of them. Now have to fix a couple of small issues on Landy before her next run the Samford Show in July were I will set up my pump display to show what a Land Rover can do.

    I'm pretty sure that the one with "Austin" emblazoned across the radiator was made about twenty years before Morris had anything to do with Austin except as a competitor!
