Twas the night before Christmas...

and all through the house not a creature was stirring EXCEPT for Pete WHO was going through the learning experience of ADJUSTING F&@ING DEFENDER DOORS ! ! ! !

I got my new Side Mirrors in and I thought "OHHH that won't take long" and promptly pulled my top hinges off my doors. Into the sand blaster they went and after a nice coat of Epoxy paint and a cure in the oven it was time to reassemble...

Then the fun began it took slightly less than a coon's age to get them doors back to where they latched decently. I still can't get them to lock yet.

The back door was supposed to be simple as well. I also blasted and painted the strip of galvanized (in my case rusted) metal that holds down the weather stripping. In addition I added the little "stop" that keeps the door from over traveling and damaging the latch and body work from slamming. OHHH SOOOO MUCH FUN...

All in all it was hours and I am still not done yet.

P.S. Merry Christmas and to all a GOOD NIGHT, I know I need a good night worth of SLEEP ! ! !

I have sadly ran out of stuff to do to my Defender and the RRC is pretty much tip top. Rover projects are fun and exciting welcome to the club.

Ohhhhhhh must be nice.

I am already thinking galvanized frame swap... Not that it REALLY needs it but because I want to do it. Galvanized axles... what else can we galvanize?
