I know the customer is always right and I know the work is right; that is the shittiest color that could ever be put on a Rover.

As I recall, you don't like Beach Runners either, so your taste is already in question.

Hi Jonathan,
We are putting the NAS exterior/interior back on it. Fresh (all black) powdercoating, otherwise stock roll cage.

Whew! I love the color by the way. It's not the usual "crayola" LR color you see in the US. It makes it unique as well.

It is an actual LR color. Forget the name/code (I can get it if anyone really cares). It is what my buddy wanted. I kind of like it.

Bedliner

John,
The interior of the tub, seatbox, floorboards, tunnelcover and interior footwell section of the bulkhead are coated in Line-x. The exterior/underside of the tub (but not the inside of the body skins) is also coated in Line-x (with minimal texture, which I thought would help keep mud from sticking).

Great job on this- I'm getting inspired. Thinking about linex-ing the interior of mine this winter. Was wondering- for a painted D90 do you have to strip body parts down to bare aluminum prior to line-x application- or do they spray it directly over painted parts? Thanks for the great pics...& +1 for liking the color choice.

Jay: as long as your paint is sticking, do not strip it. I was told Line-x will stick to aluminum, but not as well as it will stick to factory paint.

I believe the official word from Line-X corporate home office was that single stage paint needs to be cured at least 60 days but base/clears could be done almost immediately. For bare metal (including galvy) the procedure is to prime with a special etching primer before line-x is sprayed.

OK got the rear door somewhat assembled, need to do install the tire swing before the color changed trim parts go on. Two months later, finally got the RH wing on, now to work on the extra bits (ECM mount, charcoal can/steering res mount, etc) and then I can start messing with the cage. That part should be interesting, as I am planning on hiding the wires for the lights inside the tube itself.

I need to get the glass in the rear door and get my tint guy out here this week...
