Looks so good! Those inner fender liners are almost too nice to install. Motor looks great as well.

I am leaning towards doing my seat box in a black bed-liner/line-x material. It looks good and I bet will function very well too.

I've got the front end an dash mostly together. I'm now onto figuring out something custom to mount the gear selector since I swapped in an automatic tranny.

What kind of hood is that?

I am extremely envious of your skill! I wish I could find a salvaged truck and restore it myself.

I got the hood from Safari HP. It's fiberglass. Very lightweight

Haha I had sent you some nice D90s that were salvaged and rebuilt to like-new and you weren't interested.

this one only cost 11k before the build I think that is what he is talking about! But he is definitely killing it great job!

Sam, I know your bonnet is against the "purist" convention but it looks really cool. Do you have modification/design specs for it?

Yeah this one was only $7k more and came with the full rack, really awesome seats etc. and wouldn't require much. There was also a yellow one I was thinking of but can't find it this second.

Sam, any intentions of putting A/C in it? I see you didn't go with the bumped out grill, so maybe that's not in the plans.

Well, I have a SW and a ST so the Defender "bug" is gone. I think a project vehicle would be fun, but I know I would make a lot of expensive mistakes in the learning process.

When I get my shop cleaned out, I might take something like this on. If my wife were to find out, I think she would punch me

So here's what I came up with for my auto trans conversion. I wanted to confine my interior mods to the tunnel section so I could still use a Tuffy lock box. Using a piece of 3/8 steel plate I mounted the Tbox shifter forward 6", lengthened/ customized the linkage and had just enough room for the gear selector to squeeze in behind it. Then I custom made some pieces to finish it off and coated them in bedliner. It all just fits with out a lot of room to spare but it all works great.

More progress. I replaced left and right my tub sides and vertical rear cappings. I also attached some steel plating to the top of the wheelwell section of the tub because this area is so weak. I painted it all Arles blue. And then did some role in bedliner on the inside.
