One month with my 110

Where did the time go:
Removed the brush guard - hated it
Removed the steps - hated them plus when i got them off I noticed they had water inside them
Replaced all the exterior bolts with a mud-uk stainless kit
Replaced all the roll cage bolts with new ones - genuine
Added Trailhead stainless oil cooler lines
Replaced broken trim pieces inside
Replaced the foam in the front seats - impossible for me to get tight so I brought it to a upholstery shop. Came out great
Put on new style hinges from a Safari Rover take off truck.
Repainted rear cross member. Had faded and looked like crap. Also repainted the mesh grill under the regular grill
Replaces outer right tie-rod end - thanks EE for explaining how to do it
Refilled swivel housings with grease - thanks EE for explaining this too
K&N Air Filter
K&N large oil filter
New TD5 one pice rubber floor in front
New bottom door seals
Trying to get that one piece mat from Brazil for the back
Compounded and Waxed every inch of the car. Paint really came out great.
Shocking how nice the truck is considering how dirty it was when i got it.

DANG! Man, ... I told you that was a diamond in the rough.

Looks killer. Where did you get the genuine roll cage bolts?

Thanks
Dendy

ps: If'n I were you, I'd keep the original items in storage ... just in case.

Looks good, and that's a lot done in 1 month! But you can't leave us hanging like that - we need more pictures!

Also I'd love to see close ups of all the cage parts on a NAS 110 (particularly underneath and inside)

Camera died. Will take a some more today. I got the bolts from http://www.frogsisland4x4.com/ They were really helpful and cheaper than in the US even with shipping. If anyone needs a breakdown of the sizes I now have them. It is basically two sizes. The ones that hold the cage to the truck are slightly longer than the ones that hold the cage together.

Have you put Redline MTL in the gearbox? K&N filter.... Why grease in the swivels? Its the stuff you dont see that makes the most difference. Nice looking 110.

I haven't done the redline yet but the truck shifts well anyway. I put grease in the swivels as this is standard fair for rovers now. There were problems with the gear oil leaking out. Here are some better pictures. I have some sort of a leak in the front passenger hub judging by how wet it looks and how it is making a mess of the wheel.

I also repainted the feet of the roll cage behind the drivers seat. Wet rugs made for ugly rust.

I ended up removing the rear bumper, and all the bolts. Then I sanded it down and treated it with a rust cleaner spray that I had. After that I cleaned it with alcohol and used a semiflat krylon paint. It came out well I think. I did this on my 90 about a year ago and it has held up really well. I then reassembled everything with new bolts.

I am open to offers if someone wants it.

So is it hard to replace the outer hub seal on the passenger side front wheel?

Front mat I got from Safari Rover. It is the tunnel cover and front mat that is one piece. The rear mat is only available from Brazil. Surf110 has it and I want to get it. It covers the back load area including under the jump seats. It is really cool. I am working on getting this now.

So far there seems to be an issue with exporting. If I get it, I might get a couple.

Cool, I've been looking for something like that to replace the cargo area carpeting. Let me know how it goes. Found a pic of it (below) in a Brazilian forum. Looks like 5-bar rubber matting. Found this company in the UK that sells it by the rolls, but couldn't find a US supplier:
