Having just seen this thing in person, I can attest to the fact that the silver is really SWEEET. It's definatly going to be one of the coolest D-90s, period.

It won't work with out removing the NAS cage

BTW Mike, you know you can take your front screen off right? 6 bolts and it's out.

That said, who want to start a bet that Mike will have his screen off for this weekend even

Randy-
No, nothing really under wraps ... just a few loose ends that haven't been decided. It is Land Rover-based ... or rather will have some LR parts on/in it. When I actually have some pics worth posting, I'll post some up.

Keep yours coming, though. Is that silver an actual LR color ... like Blenheim Silver or something? I've thought about using the silver on my wife's Volvo.

I wish... I have been so busy that things are moving slower then I thought. I hope to have it on the road late fall. It won't be finished but will be road worthy.

I have a full NAS ST cage for it and also have a full euro hard top with a POE rear window setup.

Yes that is a red top against my wall. Good spot. If and when I use the hard top, I will just unbolth the top part of the cage and plop it on for the winter with no upper cage...Euro style.

NICE Randy! You have the drivers seat in, that means you just need to put on some bigger tires and we can go wheeling!

I love the way you have your coolant reservoir mounted. Is that a pine, cherry or mahogany?

You're getting there man! Looking nice!

LOL. Yes I have the seat in it and have driven it up and down the driveway and in the back yard. I even tackled a big dirt mound I have in the back to check articulation ... I have to get the wiring done so I can get it on the road. THere is no dash or interior either/

Oh and Glenn, That is a pressure treated piece of a 6x6... Due to the price of this build I could not afford Mohagany . Glenn, If you are around one day, I would like to see how those sliders look.
