Where in Vegas are you located? Looks great so far. I have a 97 but haven't shipped it to LV yet. Its in Orlando and I'm considering sending it to Safari HP for some work before shipping this way. I'm up in Summerlin and have spotted a Yellow D90 and thats it as far as rovers around here.

I live in Silverado Ranch area. Yes, Defenders are definitely a rare site around here compared with the east coast.

FYI, even in the seeming hotbed of defenders (NC) outside of Nantucket, I'm lucky to spot one a month, if that.. Usually less than one every few months.

I had my brother install a new rear ball joint for me and started getting the front axle and brakes together.

I've got it to the point of being a rolling chassis. Since I have the engine out I decided to bite the bullet and just redo everything so I can be sure it's all good. It's a 4.2 ltr with the following done:

Block hot tanked, all new main and rod bearings, the main was align bored, cylinders honed, new piston rings and seals, crank shaft hot tanked and polished, all new freeze plugs, new crower cam 50229 and hydraulic lifters, new crank gear, cam sprocket and timing chain. New rear main seal, front crank seal and timing cover gasket. New water pump and gasket.

The heads have been hot tanked, decked and bead blasted. New valve stems, springs and seals. New head gaskets, head bolts, intake manifold gasket and valve cover gaskets.

A lot of this was done at a machine shop my brother recommend. He's used it a lot through the dealership. Him and I did the head gaskets. It's easy to get right when you have a LR master tech watching over your shoulder.

More pics to come as I get more of it together!

I got the front half painted in Arles blue. Wheel spaces and tires installed. Bulkhead, gas tank and fuel lines in. The foot wells and floor boards are being covered in a stick on heat/sound insulating matting (boom mat) the 2 coats of truck bed liner. Should help keep down on the noise and heat a little while being durable. I researched this idea on a few Jeep forums. Seems like a good combo. We'll see. I also got a coat of bed liner on the seat box. I'm using Monstaliner. So far I like it.

The paint looks a little dark, is that just the lighting in the pictures?

I don't think anybody is going to care a thing about that "salvage" title when you're done! She's looking great, sir!

I cleaned up the galvanized inner fenders but they still didn't look pretty so I primed and sprayed them in Zambezi silver. Installed the wings and headlights then got the heater, washer bottle and brake booster connected and installed the radiator too. Just started putting the dash together. I want the front half done before I finish the back end.

Look so weird with just the inner fenders on.

Looks like you have a '95 serp 4.2

Is there any internal difference in the 4.2 v-belts of 93,94 and the serp 95?

Great looking buildup.

It's got about a 1.5 to 2 inch lift. The 4.2 is from a LWB RR classic and the serpentine belt setup is off a 95 disco. Switching to the serpentine belt setup is fairly involved. Besides the timing cover and ancillaries you gave to change out the intake manifold, oil cooler lines, heater hoses, fan shroud. Not too bad if you have a donor vehicle. In the end I like how it modernizes it a bit.
