Took off the solenoid, it has corrosion. But the thing doesn't really come apart, it's stamped together any suggestions? i could grind the stamped dimples. I could also run it through a anti corrosion solvent and move it and shake it a bunch.

Pry out the stamped dimples. Then "stamp" them back after you've heehaw repaired it. Thats how I do it.

Stripping paint sucks, i stripped each section down to all shiny bare steel and then primed one section at a time. Here's the driver rear quarter panel almost stripped down and the driver door stripped and primed.

You might want to leave the top white anyway, if your in a state where theres lots of sun and hot temps. (wink wink)Just a thought.

That would depend on what kind of 4-wheeling you're planning to do with it.

Body Damage is Cool
Here is a perfect source for turbo diesel lovers. Late model 2008 Mitsubishi L200 crew cab pickup STATESIDE in Tucson. http://gsaauctions.gov/gsaauctions/aucdsclnk?sl=91QSCI12174531 According to VIN that thing supposed to have 2.8TD 4M40 engine, easy select. That's obviously a drug repo or something like that. I conversed with custodian

The truck doesnít run and hasnít in quite some time. The dash wiring has been cut, holes in dash cut. Interior is disassembled, exhaust system missing.
Sounds they were very thorough checking every hollow. Auctions ends TOMORROW!!! That might be only chance in loooong time to have something like that in us. Some enterprising sole might try to register that in non-emmission checking state. You'd be on your own. You should be able to source parts from Mexico where it's sold. http://www.mitsubishimotors.com.mx/index.php?s=modelos&m=detalle&a=9

Got the engine started today! Runs pretty good too, needs some fine tuning but this was the last big thing. I did the hot torque on the head and re sealed the valve cover. I can now start gathering the accessories and installing them so i can get this pig in the Montero.

Here's the video First running of the engine!
