I'd throw the foam away, it will just absorb moisture. BTW, I'm using the DynaPad product from Dynamat. I may get their hood liner to replace my old one, which has a tear.

The hood liner is useless stuff. I have it and it does nothing. Well, it does soak up water and dumps it all over when you open the bonnet, so I guess it does provide some entertainment!!

I like the dynamat option and was looking at their web page at the dynaliner and dynapad. My defender is pretty much coated with the stuff so am familiar. There are no dealers around me here in Nashville as far as I can tell - any recommended on-line vendors?

I bought from Walmart online, believe it or not. There are a few other places online that might be cheaper, but not by much and not as well known....

Agree; the stock liner is pretty useless, but some insulation is better than none.

I have a good set of lift tabs for my truck, but I really would like to maybe have a couple metal sets made... The plastic ones go for silly money, maybe we can see how much it would cost to have them made and I have a great powder coater... Interested?

I may be interested. I have one and think I may have a set lined up from a early 90s donor truck.

I've had that thought as well, but if you sit on your tailgate much, metal tabs could be more painful than breakable plastic tabs...

True. Metal may hurt, but it'll bend. Where as broken plastic tabs can cut, and in turn, breaks your heart. I'd be good for three sets.

I found a set of lift tabs from my mechanics donor car. Speaker covers and passenger seat base trim still an issue.

Ok. Some progress on improving the truck and emptying my piggy bank.

New ABS pump, break lines, pads, and accumulator: check

Literally all new suspension bushings tie rod ends, roto flex, rear drive shaft, dampeners, pinion bushing, blah blah blah: check

Repaired and now functioning cruise control: check

AC recharge and refit of instrument and dash bezels (fixing loose radio) : check

New fuel pump: check

Engine tune: check

Now off to paint. I will post pictures of the body repair, rust remediation etc. here she is starting the tear down for paint work, mirrors, door panels, door handles and glass out first...

Work remaining to be done includes paint and body, engine work to include head gaskets, all seals, crower performance cam and bearings, oil cooler lines. Will wait for engine work until this winter if possible. Need cash reserves to replenish first.

Still looking for the following if you have any leads:
1. Good condition arm rests, seat bottoms or complete front seats.
2. Replacement front windshield and back quarter panel weather stripping
3. Front blinkers (mine are okay, just some micro cracking
4. Rear wiper arm nut cap
6. Good condition owners manual. Mine got wet. Leather is fine but pages are ruined.
7. Speaker covers
8. Seat base plastic.

More to come as I think about it.

Looking good. Are you buying new hood and tail gate badges or going without?

Interested to know where you sourced these. I've seen a variety of letters for sale through different outlets, but none looked as original as the OE lettering. Most look like hell actually.

I used classicsrovers.com. Color looks a little darker brown than my originals were but decent replica. I think rovers north now has them as far less than I paid for mine.

Anyone know of a source for the chrome strips on doors and panel sides? Can they be restored?
