Well I spent too long looking at power mirror wiring diagram today and didn't have much luck with all that, so I am going to hold off on rewiring the mirrors for now.

But I did accomplish something. The seat base trim on the driver's side was a little busted:



But all the broken parts were still there, so I decided to go ahead and repair it with my hot stapler.



And I forgot the "after" photo of the other side so expect another update.

After





That's 100% original plastic repaired and reinforced with stainless steel. No glue. No epoxy.

Rovers north and Atlantic British usually have them. LWB rear mats are unobtanium

The cargo mat is a Weathertech, I got it in Black to match the other mats, but they also sell it in Tan and Grey

It's weird now that I'm used to the Euro light set-up with clear lights the all amber look strange. Good find though.

How true. I'm lucky only the one Lab lays on mine and it's usually covered with a towel for his comfort as getting older now. The front ones are showing some wear yet those are findable.

Ok I'm gonna button up the seat project today and then do the tune-up. The goal is still to get it fully operational for URE next month and it has a long way to go.

Tune up is pretty straightforward as you know well. What about the tranny issue you mentioned earlier?

I have a good used one to swap in, at the same time I am going to do LT230 conversion.

Yeah, I wanted to do that swap as well and it just didn't work out. No doubt it really improves off highway performance, yet, will wait until we get back to the U.S. before considering it again.

This is what the passenger side seat base trim looked like. Ouch.

When Doug sent me the quarterpanel, I had him send me the the trim from his parts truck. With a slight trim and a new screw hole or two, the pre-95 trim fits perfectly.







Door sill plates and this part is all done. Over the winter, or maybe before, the seats are coming out, the carpets getting cleaned, and that light rust getting taken care of.

Well removing the carpets is pretty easy lol as mine are up all the time drying out the floor although now that I have the flap holes filled with epoxy as temp fix, much less water intrusion.

When I reinstall the sills I wrap the screws which are now SS with plumber tape. Keeps the water out from coming up the screws.

So what seat covers did you purchase?

Got the seat covers from Kexby. I installed the passenger front almost a month ago, and it finally seems to have settled into place. Installed the driver front last night. Will put the rears on later today. They are pretty stout and I will go into more detail about them in... about a month when the rest of them settle in.

Right now I'm under the hood...

Flame trap.



Flame trap after soaking in gasoline for an hour, then being flushed/backflushed with water, sprayed out with brake parts cleaner, and sat in the sun to dry.



New breather hoses, tee, idle control valve hose.



We have these hoses in stock, PM/email if you want to replace yours...
