Put a soft top on my 110 this weekend. I purchased the Exmoor hood at RN on clearance and I have to say that the quality and fit is outstanding. I had to cut down the Wolf cage 2 inches all around for the canvas to fit properly. I love how it looks.

Found some scrap rubber that fit, got some contact adhesive, and now I no longer have rear windows that rattle. Now, to find the metal trim piece that attaches to the end of the glass to open/close it...

Installed the Puma Rear Door

It all started in December of last year, I bought a NTO 2014 Puma rear door in the UK, then I found some second row doors, and a set of front doors, then a Puma rear seat. Over a couple months I had everything collected from various places ALL over the UK, packaged up and freighted to Vancouver. First piece went on today. Had the rear door painted, tinted the glass, opened up my bag of stainless Stig hinge bolts and put it all on.

Great feeling of satisfaction to have finally started replacing these doors. Rear swing away carrier and drop hitch is already on order from JSQ.

The other doors will probably wait until next spring, along with tearing off the capping and getting it galvanized, and a full paint renew. Puma rear seats will be this summer after my YRM order arrives with the rear upstand kit.

I installed my ARB roof rack today. I still need to modify the front clamp to clear the cage.

I've only washed my truck twice in the past 9 months. That's dirt leftover from a Vermont trip over a month ago.

2 x someone stole the plates off my car in Brooklyn, NY. One from a Jaguar that I had and one off of my Volvo 2 months ago.

It was found safe and sound. Only took me a few days to notice. Could have been interesting had I been pulled over.

Today,for my Deafener....

...I gave the ex army 110 hardtop a wee friend. I bought a Lightweight to keep her company.

1979 2.25 petrol (46000 miles only!!!!) for €7000 with a good chassis with straight doors and panels even with original indicator lens' etc. with a small amount of work to carry out:paint to original colour,gearboxes leak free(how'd that happen? ),rear crankshaft seal to replace at some point(she's marking her territory after all)new canvas to install as all hood sticks are present,restore the narrow track Sankey trailer that came with her and in keeping.

I will carry out a little research to see if the Capstan Winch that is fitted is army fit or civilian. If civilian I'll sell same and take the grill back to original.

My last LW in Ulster was a 1984 example so it's good to get back to basics again(did I really say that?) .This model has a nice little extra factory-fitted toolbox fitted at the rear LHS wing which is dinky.

Out of all my LR's I've ever had I regret selling that 1984 model. Strange that eh?

I trust the fellow Inmates will enjoy the pictures.....

The bumper is a Terra Firma one I got from Lucky 8. It was pretty cheap and I'm happy with it. Its not the nicest bumper in the world, but it works and the price is right. I had to grind a couple of millimetres off of the lower mounter bracket because it was rubbing the transmission cooler lines (automatic).

I'll have to measure it, but it doesn't fit in my parking garage any more. The mounts have about 1.5" of adjustment in them, but I have it as high as it can go which allows the sunroof to open fully.
