Top dash that was wrapped in leather and had the ash tray "filled". Got it off a board member. Just waiting for Lav's alloy vent covers

Yeah all covered up, you'd have no idea it wasn't stock. Well done. I had no idea you were going to get all fancy with this!

Thanks Charles and no I wasn't trying to be fancy!

To be honest the lower dash cover wasn't much added dollar wise and it takes care of the cutouts that were in the vinyl for RHD. The upper cover was already done and was bought on here for a decent price. I am going a little overboard on the stainless fasteners and the aluminum bits but they look so good!

Fabricated a bracket for the clutch hose as I didn't weld one on before it went to galvy. Just used 4 bolt from the throttle pedal.

I need a bracket like that! My clutch line is just flopping around by the exhaust. Nice work!

Thanks - the clutch lines have been installed for months and I kept slacking on making this.

Nothing to it really just found some scrap sheet (actually it was a left over piece from the bulkhead patch panels). Cut it to size put a 90 bend on it and radius'd the corners. Shot it with some left over brake caliper paint.

I figured I would add on what I am doing with the wiring to this thread and not the Wiring Woes thread I was asking questions on (http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...oes-59951.html)

Part of my issue was the wiring harness I bought didn't have connectors and with this being my first real wiring job I was getting confused. I think I found a place that has connectors that I can use to connect items like the wipers and directional/blinkers.

I also pulled the breather lines from the old LT77 and LT230 and used them on the R380 and LT230 after a good clean.

Got new VDO gauges and did the wiring to them. I had spliced a new connector but going to redo that to one of the factory style ones when I get it from that place in Japan.

Got a package from Eastern Beaver today. Pretty quick shipping considering it came from Japan.

The connectors he sells work perfectly so I am really stoked that all the switches now mate up like they should.

Got the vents and seals reinstalled. I think I have had them on and off about a dozen times. At one point lost the vent brackets so ended up making new ones.

Since the are aluminum and the bulkhead is galvanized I figured I would strip and give them a scuffed finished. I will paint them if and when I end up painting the rest of the truck.

Got the inner fenderwells re-galvanized. Glad I took the advice from another thread to do it. They came out great. Going to install these this week.

thinking of going with the bare aluminum look, or just leaving the galvanized bits bare? Saw a series once that was all zinc and polished aluminum.

That looks pretty cool but going to keep it the brushed on paint job for the rest of the panels. I plan on using this rig off road so more scratches and dents will be added.

The main reason I stripped the vents was they were red at one point and had blue just on the outside. Didn't look good when hung on. Might take them off and spray them body color down the road.

Redid the connector for the dash with an 8 pin (glad I bought extras of each) as that was the spec on the wiring diagrams for the 300tdi harness. Happy with how it came out but if I was to do it again I would just make my own harness instead of splicing the 2.5 one.

Just need a sender wire for the speedo and the main gauge cluster should be good to go. I will add 3 VDO gauges to Lav's trick center piece down the road.

Don, this is looking really nice! I commented on instagram a few months back as well (danger ranger). Rolled on paint should be nice, im sure you have seen it, but you should take a look at the "rolled on" forum, some of those people got some pretty nice paint jobs from rolling it on!

Also I just read through and you said you weren't sure whether you wanted to intercool it, not sure if you made the decision, but from my expierence when the turbo fails, that intercooler is your saving grace. The intercooler blocks (most if not all of) those bits/chunks of metal from getting into the combustion chamber. Ive had 2 turbos go on me on separate motors, and both times I made sure to pull the intercooler and clean it out and sure enough there were many piece of metal that fell out of the turbo side of the intercooler (flush it out->in hole so the pieces come out the hole they came in). Both turbos lived a long life 316k miles and the other had 12,000 hours on it, wasn't my doing that killed them.

That Ranger came out good! Someone in the UK did the brush job. I have seen on a auto show where they D/A'd a paint job to show the primer layer. I think that would be cool to do to show the different layer (I think it was green at one point). But I have so much work to do before I think about paint, haha

Very interesting. I've never heard that an IC as a safety piece but makes sense. At some point I will hook up the IC. I have it in as mock up so I know where to run different lines. Thanks for that info
