Jake,

was that you driving on sunset at around 5pm today? If it wasn't somebody else has a white 90 sw with a similar external cage. If it was, the truck looks mean.

Truck looks great. I just purchased a 97 White ST D-90 a few weeks ago and plan to do some work on it soon. It was very low mileage (27K) but I may steal some of your ides. Looks great.

MOre tweaks to the D90...7.29.10

Some pix of the latest addition to the D90 SW:
Changed all exterior and most of the interior bulbs to LED

Added Hella work light to the Safari Guard light bracket that I picked up on the forum--the light is operated by a separate switch and is also activated with the back up light

I had already changed the carpet to black, post dynamat, and I always wanted thr rest of the interior to match the carpet and the Badger Coachworks black seat covers. So, I had a great local upholstery guru, black vinyl wrap all of the grey plastic pieces, including the door panels and interior trim pieces...looks great.

Best addition, the same guy had already installed power door locks (driver/Pass) tied to the Alpine alarm system. He thought he could build a simple auto door lock for the rear door--which was much needed. He did it, and its the most useful mod yet...completely stealth as well.

Also, BJF referred me to the MudUK's recent offer of current style black rear door cards that replace the lame vinyl over cardboard orig cards...see pix--looks great and hides the auto door lock in the rear.
lemme know if you have any questions.
Peace,
MJ

I was wondering about these door cards ... they are not expensive ... are they any good?

The rest of the truck looks fantastic ... I wish I could find a decent local trim shop :-(

the door card is a huge improvement over stock but it takes some fiddling to get it on. I wasnt thrilled with the install but it seems to be holding up.

Looks great. See door card off ECR site as another option. Anyone know if its a LR part or a good source? Thoughts??

Thats a TD5 door on ECR's site ... currently available for about $1800 from rovers north .. as opposed to 89 quid for the after market version.

Barry ... I guess the question is .... would you have one in your 110 if you were keeping it? I know how 'particular' you are about things.

Well I have a td5 door for my 110. Brand new unpainted with all the trimmings including the top of the line door card with the net that I want to put on my 110 if I keep it. If I sell the truck the door will be for sale. Funny I sourced every single thing separate and then RN starts selling it as a package. Oh well. In any event the stock doors on our trucks are pure crap and all the plastic card does is hide the problems. The new door is galv steel over a galv frame. Much better use of money in the long run.

But if you have a door that isn't cracked inside like Matt's wasnt then a good alternative is going mantec with the new door card for a decent long term upgrade.

Now with my 110 I have the mantec and if I ever did put a new door on I have the proper mantec plate to use it on the td5 door
