I guess I didn't take pictures of the portal back on the axle. I will grab them tomorrow. I just need to change grease fittings and bolt it back together.
Well no, but a conversion is happening. I’m going from 6 lug to 10 lug. Im waiting for the hubs to arrive still so until that occurs I’m going to be fairly quiet about it all. I have an alternate route if needed. I’m very excited though at the promise of it all.DokaTD, are those the "conversion" hubs for going to 8 lug?
Did you sandblast ? In the Netherlands we used to have stations that applied / sprayed tectyl inside the doors and other hollow spaces.. it wicks in between spot welded sheet metal.. a wax of some sort.. maybe good for preventing corrosion from in between those spotwelded areas.A couple more. On the inside of the shroud, after sanding and painting, I put a few coats of rattle-can bedliner
(Herculiner), in an attempt to seal up the edges of the layered sheet metal, and provide a little extra protection in the Air Blast Zone.
Time will tell.
Sorry about the double post of the Before photos.
Special skills at work.

Wow, is that cause by lack of grease? Gutsy repair job..have fun at massmog.
Sorry for my ignorance.. why do you need re-inforcement in the front fender?. Is it difficult to take the cowl of? Probably have to modify the 404 to remove the cowl.. would make some maintenance a lot easier.
