Hey Stephen,

I think Isle of Bones needed a front cross member.

Oh yeah, that's nice. Stephen - I see you got a new heat shield/bracket for the speed sensor - do you have those in stock?

Just putting in new valve gaskets, oil pan gasket and where ever else it is leaking from.also putting in new main seals. I don't think the main seals are not leaking but we figured that while Steve had the engine out we might as well replace them.

Which reminds me does anyone have a good solution for removing oil and rust stains on concrete. It looks like the Exon Valdez docked on my drive.

As usual good work Stephen and Ash. It'll be cool to see the progress the next time I come up that way. All I can say is I'm glad my/Safari Rover's 90 is sitting in my driveway not the shop, despite making the shop look good, heh.

To the Owner, expect it to take more time any money than you anticipated, but it is worth every penny and every minute. You took it to the right place to have the work done, I really cannot say enough about the work Stephen and Ash do.

S-P

PS: Don't forget the fender washers...

??????????? 10 days past due?? you told me between 30 and 45 days seems to me like you are right on schedule.

It looks great. What a difference. Thanks for everything.
Soon I will be driving my Defender instead of daydreaming and pretending my tired old Trooper is one.

I can't argue with you one bit Stephen has been great to work with and very up front and open. Have not met Ash but sound like a good kid and a hard worker. Not always easy to find.

Stephen is out for the week on business so I'm flying solo currently, but progress has remained steady. We set the body on Saturday before he departed and I've started the process of buttoning everything up. Excuse the cell phone pictures.
