I bought an HJ61 last year and only had time this year to do a total reconditioning of the baby. I am just going to post some of the pics that I took while doing the surgery. I would gladly answer questions even as each pic will answer for itself. :icon-biggrin:

Decided to change the tires to 33" mud fighter. I did travel from Manila to my place in Dumaguete City. It took us 3 days and 2 nights. A distance of 300 kilometers.

Engine is a 12H-T diesel. So far, the components are complete. A few leaks but nothing serious. I always make it a point to remove the engine so as to clean and fix the leaking components. Giving the engine a fresh paint will take a lot of time. But, I can selectively hand paint this without dismantling. Give it colors to make it more lively.

Got the engine back on. My welder is repairing a few rusts here and there. By the way, my welder is Pedro and he is deaf. He does a good job but very difficult to communicate. I have to shout out loud for him to hear me. Sometimes, you might think that I was pissed off with him.

I would say rust overall is around 7%.

It is now time for a thorough cleanup of mud and oil. A power washer and an efficient degreaser would do the job.

In the next pic, the paint came off just by power spraying it over. The previous owner or whoever, did a very bad job or he got robbed.

I have painted the chassis flat black and top coated this with a 70% clear coat and 30% flattening paste. Came out real good. I am on the process of preparing the body for painting. spent time in scraping the old paint. Took around three days. The body color would be gun metal. 70% silver (metallic?) and a 20% to 30% jet black. The same goes for the top coat applied to the chassis.

I was hoping to see something a little more thorough than this. :lol:

I just wonder how many people get to this stage and just give up, pile all the bits in boxes, shove them in a barn and walk away. You've really got to be determined. Going to be as good as new when you've done. Keep up the good work!

Yes Chris, I had a few projects in the past and was put on hold because of other priorities. I am now on a slow pace in life and have more time to dip my hands and get all greasy. I have a timeline to finish the project by April. Cheers

Bracket should be the other way facing the rear and not the front.
