Funny. It might be. Those lights sucked to put in with the older style tub.

Not sure about the VAT. It was cheaper to get the lights there but honestly not worth it at all. It was a real pain in the ass to find the right ones.

Good call on buying them here.

Thanks for encouragement!

Just kidding! Your work looks awesome! Almost there. Keep it going!!

With your new Rubbolite LED lights, didn't your parents have to pay 20% VAT? I guess maybe the 20% VAT may still be cheaper than having them shipped here. I was looking at having a friend pick some of those up while over there, but couldn't get it all together fast enough, and just bought from Safari Dust instead.

It is an NAS 110 cage. So nothing different. The only thing I did was I used the roll bar pads off of my 1997 SW cage to use to make it as "97" as my other truck was.

The NAS 110s had an internal component to the cage? Shows how much I know ...I started as a Series guy.

Yes. The entire external cage ties into this interior hoop.

On a NAS 110 the cage is white.

Hey Tyler,
It starts to look like a very good looking 110.
As I told you, a friend of mine is building one with the same colors. Also with the same seats in the back. Really looks the same. I'll will post a picture on your FB. Gr. Erik

Thanks Erik!

Saw your photo on FB that is crazy how similar the two trucks are.

I would love to see more images of it.

Been a while since I updated this but today deserves an update for sure.

Got to test drive her today. First time in 5 years. Felt so good. All things seem pretty good.

Works really well so far. Still a decent amount to do but getting so close.

A few photos.

Thanks everyone. I will get some more images soon.

Tom- sorry man. I just now figured it out this weekend and was able to modify mine to make it work.

Have not had a chance to let you know I don't need it. Thanks though.

Hi Tyler,

What a great build! Finally finished, although a Land Rover is never finished. ;-)

I'm still working on mine as you can see on FB.
This thursday I placed the battery back in place and almost everything worked fine.
It even run for about one second before I switched it of again. It started at the first turn of the key. After 6 years not running I didn't expect that! Very happy!
There was not even Diesel in the filter.

I will post more pics on FB for some more updates.

Regards
Erik
