The doors on my truck won't stay open, so I looked into the problem and for some reason Land Rover decided to use the old style door checks on the '94 NAS, but they used the newer style on the '93, '95, and '97. So I got the parts to convert to the newer style. Hopefully that does the trick.

Looks great. Very curious on the overall performance as well and will keep watching. Let me know if the above solves the door movement. I'd like to do the same on my 94...

I got a pair of brand new ash grey sunvisors. Notice how they have a slightly different texture. That's okay though. The matching LH one (AWR1549LNF) is NLA and there were only 3 left of this LH one (AWR6421LNF).

I got a Hella CHMSL from Amazon. It comes with a foam pad with adhesive, some wiring, mounting instructions, and painting instructions.



Here it is on the CHMSL bar. It's smaller than the original CHMSL, but I guess that's okay. Maybe I can trim down the mounting platform a bit so it looks better.

If you don't mind me asking, how much were the sun visors? AB doesn't have them, and Rovers North's website is down for some reason right now.

Thanks. That's my brother's cat Quipin. My cat is the calico. Her name is Callie. I got her when she was a little kitten when I was 13. She's still my baby.

They were about $129 (£83.62) from Rimmer Bros with shipping. Part numbers AWR6421LNF and AWR1548LNF.

Don't trim that down and ruin that CHMSL bar. If you need something to cleanly adapt that brake light, I can make something for you via 3d printer.

Okay thanks! You're right. Maybe it can just be a placeholder until I stumble upon the genuine light.

Porn!!! Love it! I want one, but I'll probably just recover with vinyl. That material looks harder than the original or is that just me.

Hmm, yeah it might be. Of course the old one has over two decades of sun damage, so it's hard to compare.
