I just got all the neceassary modifactions done on my repli-tub, all in all it took about 40 hours to get everything right. Most of the issues have already been documented by Keith, especially the fabriaction of a new tail end splash guard consumes a lot of time and work. But one of the most annoying things when it comes to fitment ist that the shape of the cowl section doesn't match the shape of oem hood. There is a difference of about 0,5 Centimeters (sorry, i'm from Europe). It looks quite ugly and cannot really be corrected in an easy way, apart maybe form putting on loads of bondo. I think Keith has a picture of that in his restoration thread.
I also have a question about the black primer on your tub. My paint shop says it could be some form of e-coating already. The Morris 4x4 website (that's a big US-Dealer) states that you have a new primer formula and use a five stage process of rinse and dip baths, so maybe it's really e-coating. Also i tried to rub off the primer with laquer thinner and i didn't went off which is also an indiaction for e-coating, so maybe you can clarify on that. Have to say that i got my tub only four months ago, so maybe this was not true for older tubs from MD Juan
