Timing belt swap today. The old one looks nearly new, but changing it out will give me peace of mind. I thought the project would be much harder, but it's not too bad.

Finally getting things buttoned up. I finished the install of the timing belt. That was much easier than I thought it would be! With the front end apart I was able to fit the Disco fan shroud which nearly everyone said wouldn't fit, but it fits perfectly! Even the mounting holes line up and the fan is the proper distance inside the shroud.

With the timing belt done I was able to install the Equipe competition bumper and Superwinch 9.5i winch. The bumper required just a little trimming to fit the winch. The grill required some trimming since the competition bumper sits closer to the radiator, I also painted the grill to match the rest of the truck. Oh yeah, I put the proper Land Rover 110 decal on too!

Next, I finished the sliders by bending up some tree sliders/steps and welded 'em on and painted to match.

All the interior is finally done and all the seats match. You'll notice I mounted the speakers in the Tuffy console. I thought I'd give this a try, so I Dynamat'd the inside of it. I think the speakers sound much better than when they were in the doors.

Too funny! The lighting and angle makes it look like bubble gum. I didn't clean up the welds at all.

Follow-up Post:

Here's that same weld from a different angle. It still looks weird in the dark light of my shop, but it's much better than the photo shows.

Nope, they are the cheapo Mantecs. I used 1-1/2" .120 wall DOM tube for the tree sliders. The tube is just above the Jack holes so they are still functional. The rims are not the ones that came on the truck.

Yeah, I knew the skinny side goes up, but for some reason I put that one bottom on without noticing. I didn't realize it until went to install the other door this morning that I figured it out.

Couldn't agree more. The one I did had no hardware or instructions and was slightly bent/used and didn't fit together well.

They do and if I am not mistaken, Justin has a set of them with nerf, nice looking ( I just can't stand the nerf on sliders ), but I think they call them Rock/Tree Slider

I like them because it gives me a place to stand on the side of the truck and keeps the wife happy when trying to climb in the truck!

Meet Guinness

The light at the end of the tunnel!

Finally got everything buttoned up and finished.

1.I painted and installed the new front doors.
2. Installed new fenders and rear trim panels to replace the ones the previous owner chopped to fit oversize tires
3. Installed some NAS flares (although chopped, they were free)
4. Installed a Painless dual battery kit with Optimas
5. Installed Blue Sea aux fuse block
6. Wired the winch with power cutoff switch under the hood
7. Bled the brakes
8. Built a rear ladder with ever-important Guinness bottle opener
9. Installed new VDO oil pressure and Temp gauges.

Now that "Project Frank" is complete his name is now officially Guiness

Next up: ARBs, HD axle shafts, HD tie rod and drag link, and front and rear skid plates. Also need to build a rack and rear bumper.
