No! She has some clothes on. Remember the old nudie inkpens, turn them upside down and the girls clothes come off? Well, yeah, "there's an app for that."

Good catch!




Some updates, switched to green/amber illuminated swiches instead of the white/amber ones. Installed some other stuff too.

Those are X-Lites by X-Engineering in the UK, much brighter than they look.

I need to mount the rear seat and the rearview mirror inside, but aside from that and anymore door check adjustments I might make, she is pretty much buttoned up inside.

Outside, well I am dying to mount the flares and the last sidemarker, but the reality is there is some touch up bodywork to do on the RH rear corner and the paint needs to be buffed. The thought of compound splatter everywhere terrifies me so the flares probably wont go on yet, and the grille/etc might actually come off for that.

Joel,
Should I still be expecting you for a custom roof rack?

I believe the truck will be headed your way sometime in January? I may haul it up there for the owner, not sure yet on all the details.

Cool, no rush, not like it's gong to get any colder in my garage now (I hope not)! I think our/your best option is to build it, powdercoat, and instal while it's up here. I'd love to get it galvanized first, but that will take a little time as the gavly guy is up in Baltimore. Shoot me an email or PM when you are getting close so I can order the parts for it.

Oh anytime I am heading northbound I will be sure to announce it.

Follow-up Post:

Spent today finishing up a lot of little loose ends. Also I got that rear Exmoor rear seat monstrosity installed today, (sorry didnt get any pics yet) what a weird contraption. Looks like I will have some more painting to to as well, since when you order it in black it comes trimmed in grey plastic.

Took me a few tries to find a local shop with: A) employees competent enough to understand how to put dynabeads in a tire B) confidence in their ability to mount tires on expensive, rare wheels without damaging them and C) time to do the job. Finally got lucky though and look

Really amazing truck, and I really like color (In france, our 50th anniversary defender have the same...).
Great looking with tires too ;-)
Do you drive a little or just go out the garage?
What is your 1st opinion about those tires?

Thx

Joel, can I send you my truck? j/k

Very nicely done. I enjoyed this thread and look forward to the next one. Hope the new owner appreciates all the work that has gone into it, but doesn't make it a garage queen.
