This is basically the difference between truck bed liner and undercoating spray when speaking of over-the-counter type stuff. Professionally sprayed LineX won't do that.

The Black Beast is Home!

Well I picked her up Saturday from Line-X and towed her home! I know this is a lot to ask being a Land Rover and all but I am hoping this is the last time she has to be on the back of a tow truck!! Haha yeah right....

Let the Games Begin!

The wiring has begun.....OMG I really hate wiring! Its such a slow and painful process. I got the headlights, turn signals, front wipers, running lights, brake lights all working so far. Need to get the rear wiper/washer hooked up along with all the add on accessories, off road lights, heated seats, heated mirrors, heated windscreen, winch, compressor, gauges, electric fans, etc. etc. etc..........

Helpful Hint #3497

If you need new doors as I did and you do not have any of the inner door parts you can reuse from your old doors, don't buy new door shells. Make sure to get new or used doors with all the guts already inside. The only pieces I could reuse from my original doors was the glass.

I spent a few days just figuring out all parts I needed to order! Now I still need to install them!

Roof Rack On!

After much research and deliberation I ordered a Front Runner Slimline II Roof Rack. I settled on this one as I needed a completely flat platform for a roof tent, paddle boards and kayaks.

It arrived in 2 boxes and about 300 pieces, but after I got past the IKEA flashbacks it was not too bad of an install. Little bit of a challenge as I installed it by myself.

Sway Bar Added

My Truck did not come with any sway bars so I figured I better add one with a roof rack and roof top tent in the plans. I wanted one I could disconnect when off road if needed so I opted for the X-Deflex. It locks/unlocks through an old school 4x4 hub. The fit and install was smooth, I will update after I get some miles on it.

Line-X Exterior

The build looks very good and it's your truck after all and you are free to decide what you do with it.

But if you were looking for a durable coating, there are, IMHO, better alternatives to Line-X exterior, like Polyurethane paints (PPG etc.).
By better I mean they don't make the vehicle look like a sandblock.

Line-X'ed trucks look good when they come out of the spray booth but then they are a b&*%$ to clean and will fade overtime even with UV protection. When they do fade there's not a lot you can do with them other than acid-dipping and recoating from scratch.

Also, your line-X guy should've really insisted on the bolted body panels (Eg: front wings) to be taken apart and sprayed separately. Yes, more $$ potentially (or just your time if you're taking it apart) but a much better look and serviceability in the future.

I really wish that people's obsession with Line-X would stop at undercarriage, cargo spaces and, maybe, floor panels, which is what the product was developed for to begin with.

Sorry if I in any way come out too harsh, I don't mean to be offensive or disrespectful. I've just seen too many Line-X'ed trucks that end up looking like crap 3-5 years down the road, hopefully, yours will be an exception and still look great over time.

In my opinion there are not many trucks that can pull off Line-X without looking like a mistake, but the Defender is one that gets away with it.
That is one great looking 110!

Thanks guys,

The decision to go with full Line-X inside and out had absolutely nothing to do with aesthetics. This truck will spend the rest of its life in Alaska. Where we live there are no paved roads, in fact, there are barely roads at all. This truck will travel from one Alaskan adventure to the next, it is not for show and I honestly don't care what the outside looks like, I just need it to keep the water out...

Regular paint would have lasted about one week on this truck. The alders scraping along the sides would completely pinstripe it on the trip home from the paint booth! With the Line-X I can run a screwdriver up and down the length of it without any damage whatsoever.

As far as the Line-X being hard to wash and clean, that is not an issue. You can not keep any vehicle clean in Alaska, nor do you try. This truck will be lucky to be washed once a year. The Line-X is 1000 times more durable than any paint on the market and comes with a 10 year warranty. For this truck it was the best option.

Rear Doors

Finished up installing all the parts and linkage rods inside the rear doors and got the glass tinted. They are now ready for the door cards to go on.

Rubber Matting

Installed 1/4 inch thick rubber matting that I bought off of Ebay in the rear cargo area to help with road noise and add a little padding for the pups. I then bolted the Troy Smith tool boxes down on top of the rubber matting.

Looks really nice back there! Lucky pups. That's the thickest rubber on the roll that I've seen. Very clean look. I thought about getting some of the 1/2 stuff from the commercial truck/auto store in town (BWS-Burt Williams & Sons) before I got an oem mat, but it was already in 4' x 4' cut pieces. May have still worked, but I'd prefer the roll like yours!

And man, those doors look good! Sure is nice knowing that you'll never have to address another issue with them I'll bet! ;-)

Here is a link to the rubber matting. It seems to be really heavy duty high quality stuff. Easy to cut with a sharp utility knife and a straightedge. If you go to this guys Ebay store he has different widths and different thicknesses available. I put it inside the tool boxes and in the under seat storage areas also.

Dash!

Almost have the dash complete and all accessories wired in! I used the Raptor Engineering metal binnacle and gauge bezel along with their metal center pod. I added a compass, dual battery voltmeter and outside temperature gauge to the center pod.

I sanded down the bezel on the Dakota Digital gauge cluster and painted it black to eliminate the glare from the chrome. Everything is working great except the oil pressure gauge, it is pegged whenever the engine is running. I spoke to Dakota Digital and they said to install their manual sensor that came with the kit. I will add that to the to do list.....
