Oh, and I'm curious as to how you like the Wet Okole quality and fitment after all this time? I like that they look like a second skin! Also, I'm not sure how clean you'll be keeping the look of your swb, but if you plan on mounting rear lamp guards, you may like a set of these that I found in fleabay. All aluminum milled screw standoff mounts. Just an fyi.

Curiosity got the better of me and had to check the cargo area floor. Not bad after 22 years with the original floor sound mat still in place.. Have to say Joel's attention to detail is encouraging me to take a closer look at mine. He is certainly setting the benchmark! And for sure his work is better than new as you can see by mine.

I love these seat covers. Worth every penny.

Very nice! I'd say that it is extremely rare to see such great condition cargo pans these days.

Almost 9 months I have been trying to buy a replacement cluster bezel. I've posted ads on here, I've checked eBay daily, and I have tried to find a NOS one on every LR parts website from here to Russia.

Lucky for me I had almost all the broken parts... and I can cut plastic off a Discovery cluster binnacle to replace what I don't have. Guess I'll just have to mash them back together the best I can.

Hot stapler to stitch it together. Black plastic weld epoxy for strength. A little Bondo and a lot of sanding to smooth it out.

Just lucky I guess.


This is a genuine lower front valance (unique to the soft dash trucks) that was installed for 3 days then removed and stored for several years. Just got this today.

Box from the UK (finally) means I can finally move forwards (some) with the battery upgrade bit.

You cant read the label, but the brand of the battery I'm using for mock up is "CLASSIC" which seems appropriate enough

Not sure I'll stay with the wing nut idea, was a bit tight on the front.

With it shut, there is about an inch clearance between the top of the long stud and the hood.

You should stock these parts and offer it as a package as well, I would be interested and I'm sure others would be as well.

That's the grommet for the EAS stuff to pass through the floor under the passenger seat.
The big box with the compressor and manifold is missing-you can see one bracket on the frame(the very rust-free frame).
