Finally driving the 97 Defender

I bought #2246 SW partially disassemble back in March.

I thought it would take about a month to put it together and start driving it.
Well I finally started driving it last week. Itís about 80% complete.
I still need to add tires,sliders,ARB bumpers and clear that check engine light that keeps popping up.

see the before and after

Thanks Jimmy. Randy

Randy I need some sliders, and south down protection before I start wheeling. You've seen me drive.
I also need to figure out a place to put my spare. I cant bear to drill holes in a newly painted body.

I know I originally had it painted black. When I starter painting I thought I would see how it looked. Im still not sure if I like it . It does look good with the SS body bolts though.
