Looks great Andrew! Keep the pics coming!

P.S.- A point of personal preference (so take it for what you will), but I would have asked for the white letters to be mounted in rather than out on those Michelins. To each his own though! They'll still get the job done!

I was thinking the same thing, haha. I am definitely not a white letter person.

Looks nice. Normally I'm a writing in guy, but I've seen a few defenders where it looked great and very period! Kind of a late '80's tuff Safari look. Disregard first pic of my P38 posted by mistake.

Yeah it kinda looks retro. I didn't give it much thought when they asked me. I just said white out because that's the way they are on the Jeep. They'd probably charge to mount them again if I wanted them reversed.

I think the Michelin looks old school so I would not switch them.

I got a new starter. I decided I wanted a Denso starter because I read they're better than the Bosch. I wasn't able to find a brand new one, so I ordered one remanufactured from Denso. When it arrived I opened the box to discover a Bosch starter rebuilt by Denso. So I sent it back. Then I found the Denso starter rebuilt by Bosch. Strange huh? You'd think they would rebuild their own starters.



I also got a new water pump. It's the OEM Saleri. I read it's better to go with the original one with a composite impeller vs one with a metal impeller.



And I painted my axles today.

Now I know you're tempted, but don't hit that thing with a hammer! Try to restrain yourself ;-)

But in all seriousness with regard to starters, I had the same thing happen to me on the '95 RRC. Also, there is a big difference between made in Mexico Bosch and those from Germany.

Yeah I bet. That's an original Denso made in Italy and rebuilt in the USA by Bosch. The original Bosch is longer and doesn't have the end cap. Beck/Arnley also rebuilds the Denso, in Mexico. I don't know if they do a better job than Bosch. Here's the label on an original.

I wish I had kept my old one for comparison. It was only a few years old and had no more that 12k miles under it. What junk. It went on when the 4.2 got rebuilt. Thank goodness everything else is holding up nicely!

Pressing new bushings. Replacing all of them of course, but I forgot to order the ones for the panhard rod, so in a pinch I bought "Eurospare" brand at the local parts supplier because that's all they had. Right after we pressed one in it came apart... Total junk. So I ordered genuine OEM from the UK like the rest. At least I can start putting most stuff together in the meantime.

And these came today.

New oxygen sensors. I decided I didn't want Bosch after reading so many people have had problems with them and I almost got AC Delco because people say those are the best, but I think that's mostly for GM applications and people say they're Denso now anyways, so that's what I got.



And BMW now recommends Shell/Pennzoil as of this year. I've actually been using Shell Rotella T6 in our engines, but I found out Shell says it can hurt catalytic converters in petrol vehicles due to the high phosphorus content. So from now on I'll use the recommended Platinum Euro 5w40.

Pennzoil is now the recommended oil for BMW engines

Nice. What kind of paint are you using? I have been using Eastwood extreme chassis black, but sometimes I think good old Krylon would be fine.
