After ripping off a rear mud flap somehow, got around to installing new front and rear flaps...only one captive nut broke loose on the rear! Amazed...I was expecting more of headache...

Finally found a cup holder for the Ninety...

I've been wrestling with how to hold cups in my Ninety SW. Saw some Yeti up holders on eBay & thought I'd give them a try. So far so good!

I have a 2.5" straight pipe on mine and I absolutely love the sound.

Pulled the trigger and put on a 2" 5 bar strip above sill. I cleaned up some minor oxidation and felt it fits right in with the rest of the black 5 bar on the truck. Thinking about rear door bottom next but still on the fence. Still need a final coat of paint and finish other side

Not a Defender, and since my Series and my RRCounty are both working fine, I worked on the LR3: pads, rotors, tires, water pump, thermostat housing, lower rad hose connected to cooler, RLC compressor, identified transfer case leak, filled washer fluid. You know, the usual 140k service stuff.....

Wired up for trailer. But I think I need to use the old class three hitch rather than the Pintle for towing my m416.

Not sure why there is even a waste gate on these trucks. The turbo's barely make 1 bar of boost.

Replaced ignition coil on my 1994 NAS D90 with Bosch unit. Job took all of 15 minutes, most of which was finding a narrow enough wrench to unmount the existing unit. So far I think this solved my intermittent power loss and lean running issue. Best $50 spent for the unit thus far.
