Nice work, looks great! Doesn't look like you reused too much of the 90 into the 110 though, did you?

Really nice! I like how you did the auto shifter/center console (as well as everything else on it). Deep dish fan here - think they look great on the build.

The center console is an 8" wide tufty box that i cut up and reworked. I went with this because i hate the look of the super wide, fat, stock console. Plus it gave me room to fit the cupholders on the side. It ends up being a little off to the left in order to center it with the opening in the R380 tunnel but I personally think it looks a lot more stream lined and theres still plenty of secured storage space.
I also custom fabricated a steel tunnel or 'U-shaped' piece of steel that goes on top of the R380 tunnel and wrapped it with foam and leather-like material to go over the T-box shifter so I could use the type of shifter knob with the boot.

Someone asked me about the exhaust. I had it sandblasted and then I sprayed it with VHT high heat paint. It smells funny for a few days as it bakes on but then it wards of the rust for a while. I guess "a while" depends where you live. We have no salted roads or rain here.

Actually... now that you ask, I'm just buttoning up a few things on it this week and was going to list it this for sale this weekend. You're jumping the gun! lol. This is the 4th Defender I've restored and is the nicest one yet. I know what your thinking. How much? $80k obo. It's probably too low for how much $ and hours are into this thing but I'd like to sell it by the end of the month.

There's one thing about this truck that's not very rover like though. It doesn't leak any fluids. The evaporative system works good too. So, no oil spots for fuel smells in your garage.

While it's way over any car budget I will have in this lifetime... $80k seems like a very good deal. Beautiful restoration, well done!
