Chrome would have been better.

Brake line brackets

Due to an unexplainable desire to want to be able to use the ABS sensors, I ended up needing to make custom brake line brackets since the defender brake line setup differs from the RRC.

First, I cut out a new base and spot welded it to the stock bracket.

Then I drilled out the center hole in the stock bracket and notched the line hole. Ready for chrome.

If anyone needs galvanized RRC brake line brackets, let me know.

And yes, for Brigss and others, I realize this is a big waste of time, but it makes me happy

Fender mod

I put this off last year due to being undecided if I really wanted to modify my fender. I even helped Jonesy do his along the way. But Bill says someone else needs the jig so I figured it's time to bite the bullet and get it over with.


No going back

Done! I probably benefited from having done it before with Jonesy since the curve came out perfect. Or perhaps it was because I annealed it first, or maybe just because Jonesy wasn't involved . Either way, I'm thrilled with the result. I have more work to do on the inner fender so didn't bother doing to much past the curve. Will figure that out later.

Bill, the jig is available. If you have an address or something I can send it to them.

Hey Bill, thanks for checking in!

I could tell you it's a long sad story filled with trials and tribulations, but the short version is I suck. Too much working, and life in general have conspired against me and I have literally made no progress in 2 years now.

Now in the grand scheme of things that doesn't sound that bad when I just got my defender back on the road after 9+ months sitting in the garage needing some long deferred maintenance

I'd love to say I'll get back to it soon, but I think I'm going to need to get a different job first at the rate I'm going.

I occasionally catch the odd EVTV video - good to see you are still having fun with Jack!

Not for much longer, actually.
I just bought a little cabin in Middle-O-Nowhere Tennessee.
Probably got another month at EVTV.

Whatever became of those 400ah Winstons of yours?
I want to get my new house off-grid as soon as possible.
We took the battery out of Jack's Escalade. It had 57 of the same 400ah cells.
16 of those would make a very nice 21kWh back-up battery bank.
If you still have them and ever think of selling some, let me know!

As for your eRover, last I heard you were still pondering over batteries. If you've seen the EVTV Doka build, you'll know we used essentially Leaf cells. They work really well and can be had for cheap on ebay.

Keep at it, man. You're probably a lot closer to being finished than you know.

I'm deferring the battery decision until I am closer to using them. Leaf cells would work, but hoping someone will figure out the tesla bms by then - much better density.

I'm away from a computer until Sunday and too lazy to type on the phone, but I'll pm you about the winstons - you can have em.

LOVE IT....use someone else's stuff to test "theories" first.

Good to see some more progress mate.
