looks good. Fiberglassing the headliner is something I had thought about. Did the additional rigidity make it hard to re-install ?

Looking good Andrew. I'm very interested to see your headliner pics. I cannot find ripple grey vinyl to save my life!

I was also wondering about adding some fiberglass resin to the headliner to stiffen it up, but I was worried about the fact its already sagged a bit and I didn't know if it would be effective. Can we get some more pix?

Sure wish I had a rover dealer to work at...

Thanks guys! I am working the Chicago Auto Show 10am-10pm today through next Sun for Land Rover, so I won't get a chance to take any pics before than, but the answers are...

It was a little more difficult getting it installed but not too bad. I would say that if you go the same route, try to keep the overlapping parts as thin as possible (another lesson learned the hard way). I hadn't really thought about that, and it made the install slightly more difficult, but still reasonable. The most difficult part of it was the part I didn't mention. I bought three of the D90 interior lights and wired them all up to newer style door switches (with a nice rubber boot around them) and added one for the rear tailgate too. The trick to the wires is to use tape to hold them to the roof so they are out of your way during the install.

What separated on my headliner was the foam from the fiber board, so the part I reused really hadn't sagged, just the material that had been glued to it. Because of this, the resin worked great. The real reason to use the resin is not even so much to stiffen it, in fact I was worried it would get too stiff, but to give the paint a non-porous surface to adhere to. I did find in one spot that I didn't get quite enough resin and the gray base coat soaked right in leaving a funny "mark" on the headliner. I sanded it down a bit, painted the area with resin again and the resprayed it to fix this, but it is something to keep in mind if you do it. You want to make sure you have good coverage with resin before you try to paint it.

Finally, yes Jim, it is great to be able to work in the shop. A thousand thanks to the GM's at LRW for allowing me to work there!

I'll get some more pics up soon.

Update!

Ok, finally got around to taking some more pics, and there is a lot more to show now too! The first few pictures are of the headliner, you can also see the new rear view mirror with compass, outside temp sensor and auto dimming. Next is the second batch of parts back from powdercoat. The inner cage, gas tank cradle, seat hardware and rear bumper were in this batch. There are several pictures of the cage all installed now, and you can see the rear speaker panel which I have added a switch for the rear work light and two 12v receptacles. All the lousy bullet connectors have been replaced with Weatherpak connectors that are dust and water resistant. I have two more Hella 3000's to mount and have run the wiring for the already. All the wiring I have added has been run in through custom harnesses using these connectors, carling switches, hella relays etc. One thing that I am really happy with is that I ran all the wiring for the roof top lights through the roll cage in it's own harness so that the wiring is well hidden and protected. I think I am going to shorten the pigtails to the lights a little to keep them a little more out of sight, but I am very pleased with how it is coming now that I am entering the final stages.

Oops, looks like the pictures are all out of order, but I'm sure you guys can see what I was talking about.

Looks great! Where did you get the multi-relay block from?

Thanks Doug!

Jim, I sure hope so. Actually, I have managed to keep my costs relatively low considering the terminal case of ship-fitter's disease that I came down with. I hate to try to estimate the hours I've poured into it, but I enjoy the brainstorming and time I spend on it as a hobby which makes it all worth it.

Charles, it isn't really a block, but I bought it from Waytek Wire. They come as individual mounts/connectors that slide together side by side so that you can make the block whatever size you want. Each one has its own mounting hole to attach it to something and the spade terminals that they carry snap in from below. I just bought a bunch (12 IIRC) of Hella 30amp relays off ebay for about $20 and they fit right into the bases. They sell several versions of relays and connectors too though, including waterproof ones. The hella ones I used came with their own mounting brackets built into the housings which I removed with a grinding wheel for a cleaner look.

I just realized, you're going to sell it at that Land Rover dealer aren't you? It'll look awful nice parked on the rock pile...

I don't know if I am or not. I will probably talk to our GM when it is finished and see if he would let me sell it here on consignment. It does attract a lot of attention sitting here though. I often look out across the street and see people peaking in it, and a lot of people come in for car washes and want to look at it and ask about it when I am working in the shop. It gets great visibility here and people are often more willing to pay a little more when it is at a dealer, so I think it may be worth the commission to sell it here. We'll see...
