Waiting on some parts but pulled her outside. You can see how the colors blend out in the light.

Looking nice Jeff. Wait til you turn them lights on. They are way cool. Exactly 4100 degrees Kelvin cool! Far whiter light. Well worth the money I say.

Truck looks great, keep up the good work. I see you have a puma bulkhead, you must be using a full puma dash?

Yeah Chris its a mantec wheel carrier which I feel now is a lot nicer of an upgrade than I originally thought it would be. Right now I am very happy with the way the exterior is looking as it comes together. Cant wait to get pictures up of more than just a corner here or there when its all done. The one big disappointment for me was not being able to fit the SVX style side steps because I have an under seat fuel tank. I do not see how to make them work so for now I have nothing for the side steps.

Yes Macker using Puma dash and just going to customize the gauges and switches because I am not going through the headache of making the OEM work and I think I can make it look better than the now 7 year old puma dash bits that would be OEM. I think it but we will see. Getting the dash to fit with the shifter was more of a chore than I at first expected but I believe we have that all sorted out now.

I am using an ipad mini as the main component of the cluster with one of the apps that incorporate speedometer and map. Then have a fuel gauge, tach, oil pressure, fitted somewhere in the same space or close by with an OEM cable driven speedometer hidden behind mainly for the odometer.

Just mocked up the grill for a little more of the picture being completed. I know it's not much but at least it almost looks like a completed aspect.

Jeff,

This looks amazing. And to do all this with babies at home ads a factor of 10x.

Are you using the complete SVX grill and lighting set up sans the headlights (speaker LEDs) or did you figure out your own lighting and just using the SVX trim pieces?

LOVE the white "plastic" paint!

Can't wait to see more

I would love to say I am doing I am doing all this with the two small babies at home but that would officially qualify me as superhuman. The build is actually being done by a friend of mine. The fun part is neither of us knew anything about defenders before this began. I always wanted one and reading all the forums and stuff beforehand I thought this would be a lot more simple of a project. I do all the research for what goes where and finding all the parts and the vision of it belongs to me but the outstanding skill and craftsmanship are his, his name is Tom.

As for the lights the other two lights in the front are the gen svx lights. The hold up for this weekend is that one of the spot lamps was missing this adjuster screw

So we didn't put the other side on yet that's why there is no picture of the front end completed. To this point. The paint really looks amazing it was exactly what I was trying to do. The same matte treatment was done to the front fascia and wheel spats so the whole thing had that same "toy" look. I'll get you guys more pics soon.

Front end complete took her for a ride tonight which was a scary trip. Nervous with that much uninsured work rolling down the road.
