I polished the white paint at the bottom... then used SEM cleaner and adhesion promoter but painted the black with Duplicolor bumper and trim paint. I'm happy.

I have a NOS grille emblem for it also... but can't find a flaw with the one that's on there, so I'll leave it.

The second I saw this truck I felt like it had potential. It's working me to death but starting to feel I was right

Paint turned out great.
So you liking the autoscrub sponges?
What do you use on the black trim parts to keep them fresh looking?
Feel sure the work is tiring, yet, the end result is really, really nice.
Went through the thread again and once again realize you also worked on the mechanical side as well.
Just a great RRC!

The autoscrub... well I'm not sure yet. No complaints, just haven't used them enough yet. Two points of note: they must be "broken in" before actually using them, and the glide lubricant they come with must be diluted- 2oz makes a 16oz spray bottle.

I haven't used anything on any trim yet! But I usually use a product called 303 inside and outside. Very good stuff.

Took a little break from the paint and put the carpets and console back in. Thinking about doing the headliner before I put the front seats back in.

I've been following your restoration and didn't notice anything about your center console cubby being recovered in what looks to be a leather. That looks sooooooooo choice!

Now that your center console is in, have you noticed the two circle knockouts on the sides of the lower rear fascia? I figured that they had been for a factory option rear 12v outlet on either side, servicing the backseat. Thus, I drilled them out and installed 12v sockets. Any inklings to do the same? Now is obviously the time. ;-)

That's a leather lid from a 99-02 Discovery.

Those circles were for the seat belts on 94-95 Discovery vehicles (remember this is a Discovery console setup)

I haven't checked mine in forever, and I found that 3/4 are burned out on 2 trucks.
I just put in some Sylvania 13v/4.3W bulbs with a liberal coating of vaseline on the bulb/socket.

I am doing the Crown14 screw replacement therapy today and checking all bulbs.

On a whim I have purchased some 1/4" closed cell foam. It's white instead of dark grey but otherwise appears to be the same density and approximate thickness as the NOS gasket I have on hand. Now all I need to do is get a circle hole punch and I think I can make my own new taillight lens gasket.

Somewhere I used to have the number of that little bulb and a source for them... can't find it now.

X-acto knife? Cut out gasket that way?

I got the closest bulb from Vatozone; mine weren't working because of corrosion-nothing major but just enough.
All new bulbs, contacts all clean, all working now.

In other news, paint correction continues slowly. Just need to put a couple coats of wax on the roof and it will done.

I know it didn't look bad in the before pictures, but it was a little bit oxidized (naturally) and there were these dingy stains at almost every edge. The oxidation isn't such a big deal. The staining is a pain in the ass.

Ha! Better to keep the gremlins in the app and out of the truck. Don't set your phone down in the RRC for fear of infection ;-)
