No, just the normal Rover leaks and wear and tear over the past 21 years...

Transmission Pan leaking
Oil cooler lines
Valley Pan
Swivel ball
Exhaust leak
New motor mounts
Possibly rear diff...

That's the noticed items today... So hopefully by this summer I'll have a lot of that done.

I think there are quite a few clear tent options to block UV and reduce heat somewhat. I prefer my RRC's and D1's without tent and thinking of replacing my tint with a clear tint option if it's not snake oil.

Didn't get much accomplished, did adjust a few small things and short of detailing the inside, securing the radio, replacing the ski jump and finding some miscellaneous small clips the interior is just about perfect! Click image for larger version

ID:	210538 The new door pulls I got were not available in Sable, so I got a couple in Winchester Grey and had to paint them. I also pulled some of the trim around the back to check on the jack and tool roll... Click image for larger version

Now I'm looking for some caps to go over these and the thumb screws that secure the subwoofer and spare tire trim...

I'm not positive but I think the tool roll also had 1 allen key and also the wading plug (but it looks like it's tucked in there on the left side).

I will check my Sable stuff. Pretty sure I have a sub surround.

Picked these up from the powder coater today... can't wait to get them on the truck... Made sure they were straight, had them sand blasted, the faces were then hand sanded and coated in gloss black.

When I get those on I'll pull the current TWRs off and drop them off to make sure they are straight and have them done in sparkle silver...

Gorgeous finish! So glossy that they look chrome from here. Do you have caps to match?

Awesome! One of these days I'll make my 95' refresh a priority. Your truck looks great! Keep up the good work!

I am going to order new caps, but I am going to take one in the mean time and paint it to see if it matches.

Painting your caps should turn out nice. I've done a couple of sets in sparkle, but that finish is obviously easier than what your trying. Gloss black is at least an available paint. For some reason, one of my sets of TWR's was actually chrome and I didn't have matching caps. Ugh! With none available to buy, I gave it the old college try. It took waaaaaay too many rattle cans of "chrome"-ish paint to get it even halfway right.

Passable, but not great. I know. It only looks slightly more chrome in person ;-) haha

Good luck, but I'm sure yours will turn out great.
