Hopefully the LAST build update!

Well, ~4 months into this (part time) and we're on the finishing touches...

Everything to do with the following is fully done:
1. Engine (4.2, ECU extension, cone air filter, wiring, etc...)
2. transmission (cooler, shifter handle, etc...)
3. cases (LT230 and the Ash underdrive, the latter's level, etc...)
4. diffs (took care of leakes, welded some fractures, the swivel strengtheners, etc...)
5. brakes (DBA Gold & EBC pads)
6. Rims & wheels
7. Signaw pump
8. Steering (3/8 walled tube, 1.75" diameter, 3/4 heims)
9. Interior (seats, battery mounts, switches, Defender Mirrors...etc...)
10. Everrything to make it run is DONE!

Still to go:
1. Finish the front light section
2. finish rear exo
3. Paint rear exo
4. take it to MOT
5. WHEEL IT

Yes, I know, I'm gonna stretch that wheelbase to ~108 after my wedding (need to afford coil-overs and 4 links F/R) - thinking of extending the front for a better approach angle and have the same front/rear driveshaft length...whatcha think?

Here are the pics...its fugly, rightly so as its not a beauty queen...

That wheelbase looks very short--could be 'cause the tire size. I know you said you were going to stretch it, but what is it now?

Hey,

What hubs are you using? Are they standard rover 5 bolt?
