Thanks - lots of filler wire in that little thing!

Pretty good but haven't given it much testing - my street is pretty short.

I want to button up the catch can (waiting for fittings from Summit) and finish a few other things before taking it for a longer drive.

Don, did you happen to catch that one guy's post the other day who routed the lines to his chassis rails as a Rust prevention measure? What a hoot.

I haven't but that is a slick idea - if I had an older chassis I would do the same but I want to keep the frame nice and "galvy'd" for a little while.

Pic of the catch can installed. Not the prettiest thing but should do the job.

Hey don I'm not sure if you have tested that thermostatic switch but it doesn't close until 205 degrees Fahrenheit. That was a little warm for me - just wanted to let you know.

I haven't tested it yet.

I am going to run a Taurus electric fan which may have its own thermostat and those are supposed to keep things more than cool. Cooling system is on the winter project list along with a ton of other small stuff

I ended up using a new manufacture Taurus fan as well, which is two speed. There are not many affordable two speed thermo switches out there unfortunately. I still wired two speed with a Volvo two speed fan relay. However, I placed a double throw switch between the closed ground of the switch and the relay. If the fan is on (relay closed) then I can use the in cab switch to either turn it off, to low speed or to high speed if temps are still rising. Works like a charm.

Ah - that sounds like a nice way to do it. Red90 had link to someone that sells a thermo switch in one of the Taurus fan threads. I was thinking of using that and see if I can do an in cab switch as well for those days on the trail when things can get warm.

Made a bracket to hold the engine fuse box - went with a marine spec one as it was the easiest and most durable option out there.

The bracket was made from some scrap aluminum that I welded together and ties to the upper fender and inner wheel well and uses M5 nutserts for easy install/removal.

Pic of the fuse box - had to run a new wire (the only non-Anchor) today for the lights as the old one broke off at the bolt on part.

Sometimes a small fix is very satisfying.

Got the proper fuse box sticker for the 300tdi harness.

Working on a little mod to the parking brake. Pulled a RRC brake lever and going to mount it right next to my seat.

I didn't like the looks of the RHD parking lever but did like having the leg room.

I cut off the flat steel on the RRC lever and welder a new one that would work with a Defender backing plate.

Close up of the plate I made. Welded an M8 bolt as the bracket came where the hole was. I welded the bracket a little too far forward so the cable will bend a little but should still work fine.

Pic of the new parking brake.

Was hard to get a good picture with the cab being very dark.

Just sitting in the seat I really like how it feels - seems very natural. And it doesn't take up any leg room.

Just a pic while moving it around he driveway today.

Lots of little stuff done since last time:

- soft top install (although it shrank)
- doors
- stainless Allen head bolts for the hinges
- outer grille install
- winch install (with new red 1 gauge Ancor cable on the Pos side)
- reman Saab 900/9000 130 amp alternator install with new Ancor 4 gauge going back to the battery
- voltmeter install
- had the local Foreign Car shop adjust the valves and install NOS Merc injector lines that they had on shelf

There is still a bunch of little things to do and fix and then I'll start on the interior.
