Your right. It's time! Btw Matt cleared the fenders. So that leaves just the rear body and HT sides to do.

Installed temporarily the seat box ad front seats. Decided to adjust the steering column to give my 6ft2 Neanderthal frame more comfy driving position. Marked it up and over to my guy to make up the bracket.

Pulled out the Kodiak heater and parts to figure out how to mount. Thanks to Will T for the Heater fender duct. Should be easy to connect the two. Steering column bracket fabbed up by BDR. Slight customization to allow for large driver.

Just waiting for a collection or rather delivery of parts inc radiator etc. modify the d1 exhaust to fit which will be interesting. Hoping to get this sucker up and running at least around the shop yard.
Rear tub is NAS puzzled by the way lowest hinge for the HT full height door doesn't match with holes on the door. Door is old and limited life span so will probably add a strengthen piece to the door where the hinge wants to line up.

I'm not taking the credit for much of the work here. Its being magiced together by Brian Rossini at BDR Auto in Holliston.
While I started, wrenching once I realized that my skills were minimal v his, it was better to wave the white flag and have him do it right the first time.

Haven't been to Brunswick for a year. Wife is a Bowdoin grad.

Looking for the right Hand brake assembly for my D1 to Defender project. It's the interior part that had us puzzled.

Don't you need to just pick up a defender handbrake lever? I took a d1 handbrake and shortened it so it would only an inch or two above the top of the seatbox, bolted right beside the seat. But I never used it. I liked that it wouldn't interfere with leg room, but decided not to use it for originality's sake and that I wouldn't be able to fit a cubby.

I ended up taking a RHD defender hand brake lever and re-fabricated it into a LHD lever.

Driveshafts are bolted in. Cross member modified from D1 to 90 spec. Waiting for vendor to send correct mount. D2 doesn't work.

ZF Filter etc change. Might as well as we're there and it was overdue before it died.
Crossmember modified. The D1 chassis isn't as deep as the Defender chassis so the bottom two mounts are in a different position. Welded tabs extending the mounting to match. Repainted
Two new Transfer/Gearbox mounts fitted and installed.
