That looks like it might go in the rear...just above the rear crossmember, but on the backside (affixes crossmember to the body)??? I could be wrong.

Thanks but I think it goes somewhere on the passenger side wing assembly inside the engine compartment sort of where the power steering reservoir, expansion tank, and ECU mount to the wing. Just need to know exactly where.

Aaand I am wrong. I thought there were two holes at first glance. I know I've seen that before..I just can't place it right now.

Could someone possibly post a pic of the hood locking mechanism and the entire bar in front of the radiator that it bolts to? Just need to make sure I did everything right. Thanks!

What I Did Today

Started reassembling the passenger side wing assembly as well as the radiator brackets and the bonnet locking mechanism. Got pretty nervous when I realized I couldn't recall where all the nuts and bolts went but I think I'll figure it out after some helpful advice from fellow D-90.com members. I probably should've taken a picture of all this before I started disassembling everything as well. Got the holes in my door pockets brazed and primed all the other steel parts I had soda blasted earlier. Also finished rivetting down the rear quarter panel capping which was fun trying to get all the holes to line up.

The Problem with Buying non-NAS Parts

So the passenger side fender skin turned out to be a little more of a PITA than I thought. I drilled the holes for the side marker light and the rectangular roll cage hole using a dremel tool. I bolted the fender skin on to the wing assembly and proceeded to install the metal bracket that supports the roll cage. After figuring out that this metal bracket was not going to fit I began to look at the differences between this new fender and my old proper NAS fender. To my surprise I found that the new fender had this piece of sheet metal behind where the roll cage bracket should be which was impeding the fit of the bracket. The original fender did not have this piece of sheet metal. Fortunately it was just spot welded in a couple places and I was able to brake it out of there. Safari HP did not mention this piece when I bought it from them so it would have been nice to know about it before assembling the whole thing. Also kind of skinned up the new powdercoat on the bracket. So for anyone else who buys a new, non-NAS fender skin just be aware that you have to remove this piece.

That looks like the nut plate that goes in the rail of the wing top for the overflow tank bracket. So you don't have to hold a nut and washer on the back side, just tighten from engine bay side. Hope this helps.

So lately I've repainted my rear tailgate and added another coat to both sides of the hinges. Finishing up straightening out a dent in the rear quarter panel. I removed the fuel tank filler and have started to prep that little area. Also reassembled the driver's side fender skin and sanded the wing and fender with 600 grit sand paper. The rear tailgate looks great but I think I will have to go over it with 1000 grit and add another coat as there are some spots that need it.

Today finished applying Limco PS21NR Gray Primer Sealer to the bonnet, both rear quarter panels and the back of the truck minus the tailgate. After 24 hours this primer sealer will have cured and will protect the outer finished from any primers/spot puttied areas on the substrate surface. This primer is suitable for well cured old paint work, primed body panels, bare steel, galvanized steel, aluminum and even fiberglass, very forgiving on the various body panels and metals (i.e. aluminum rivet heads that are very hard to sand around) of the Defender.

Paint!

Finally I have begun painting the major body panels on the truck. I wet sanded the rear body panels with 600 grit after primer sealing them. Then after thoroughly going over these panels with tack cloth I sprayed them with green paint. I repeated this process with the passenger and driver doors and painted them on a couple sawhorses. I also sprayed the front wing assemblies of the truck today with primer sealer, tomorrow or perhaps later this evening I will wet sand the wing assemblies with 600 grit in preparation for painting tomorrow.

Today I sprayed the front panels of the truck with BRG. Then I coated the rear quarter panels and rear of the truck with 2 coats of clear. After the paint on the front dried (didn't take any time at all in 100+ degree weather) I applied 2 coats of clear to that part of the vehicle. I went back and sanded the hinges, windscreen brackets, and vent doors with 600 grit paper and clear coated them as well. My D90 looks really great now, I thought of adding a 3rd coat of clear but I'm satisfied with the shine of 2 coats. It is a Land Rover after all. The doors were somewhat problematic. I had some issues with the paint lifting back up on one of the doors and spotted a ding on another door. I will have to sand those again with 600 grit and finish painting/clear coating them tomorrow. The bonnet is still coated just with primer but that will get painted and clear coated tomorrow. I can start reassembling everything tomorrow, I may have to try out the doorless look for a day and as for the bonnet, well I won't mind showing of the 4.6 intake plenum. Will post pics but they're kinda dark, will definately post better pics tomorrow.

So close!

Well it seems my D90 is practically done. I clear coated the bonnet last night and installed today. Had to do some minor touch ups with paint and clear coat on the passenger side fender skin and the driver's side rear quarter panel right behind the driver door. One of the doors is still in the works as I had some issues with it, nothing some sanding and spraying can't fix I believe. The other door has turned out great, it has been clear coated now as well. If I paint another car someday I would rather use Advantage 2k Urethane Primer Surfacer rather than the Limco PS21NR, only because spraying panels laying flat + maybe spraying a little too much paint with the latter primer can be problematic, the Limco primer though is fine. Also sprayed my hinge screws with green paint after cleaning them off today for a temporary rust preventative, I know it would be a travesty to not replace with stainless screws. Will eventually be adding some black diamond plate to the wing tops to protect the tin foil that I like to place tools on. Also can't do too much driving until I install my new steering box whenever it gets here, just found out today I would be needing one of those, what fun! Check out the latest pics!
