On the road again (well the sedimenter was just part of a little fuel system overhaul). Thanks for the advice all, thanks for the quick shipping on the parts Rob:

Replaced the headlights with Trucklite LED and added Rigid driving lights on the 90 and 110. Also added the rear light guards to the 90 and refreshed the back side with new hardware, aluminum fuel tank cradle and fresh powder coat.

Finally had a chance to install the new intake hose I purchased from Scottyoh. Old hose was so hard and brittle I think it was leaking at the MAF. In the process of installing the hose, I bumped a wire attached to the ignition coil, breaking the tab at the negative side of the coil. So now the car would not start. Removed coil and realized someone had installed coil with polarity reversed (thanks to a post on this forum about the hard plastic connectors should go on the + or "15" coil terminal and the soft on the - or "1" terminal. Removed coil to swap the electrical terminals and noticed some green corrosion in the socket for the high tension lead to the distributor. Broke out the gun cleaning kit and used a bore brush to clean out the corrosion. Everything back together and it started right up.

Ever since I had brought the D90 to New Mexico I had a stumble under load. Noticed it at low RPMs when starting, or climbing hills. Not sure if it was repairing the air leak in the induction hose, or a weak spark caused by coil corrosion but the missing and stumbling is gone. How the hell does it corrode in a coil that is mounted upside down?

Finally got my Hella 4000s wired up to the second blue sea fuse box I added. Using a RRC switch for that stock look. Hopefully finishing my headlight harness tonight. The last on the list before URE is adjusting the handbrake so I can impress the ladies with all those handbrake turns.

Glad you found the problems, but with the coil pointing down water/condensation can run under the rubber cap and get trapped. I have seen condensation form on the black plastic part of a coil in wet/cold temps.

Installed new H4 connectors at both headlights replacing the crumbly white plastic ones that had lost some of their grip on the terminals. Started by replacing a bulb and noticing how easily the old connector slid off.

Rewired the on board air system with a bigger (40 Amp) and more robust circuit breaker that is hard wired directly to the battery on a separate supply line instead of being run through the auxiliary fuse box. I also revised the rear air outlet to make it easier to access.







a couple of pics of the Range Rover air tank installed under the passenger side:

Pedestrian Safety regulations I'd assume. Not sure if those already equipped are grandfathered or not. Of course I don't live in the UK, so I should probably just shut up..

I am finally finishing my headlight harness. I was waiting for my H4 connectors to arrive. Instead of making my own with the parts from rallylights I ordered some from headlightplugs.com. Ordered some high temp with 12 gauge wires with soldered and crimped connectors. Very pleased with the quality and price.

They are probably working on outlawing large vehicles, and anything without soft foam bumpers and hoods as well..

Installed new transmission tunnel rubber mat that I just got from Exmoor in the UK, I went with an aftermarket Bearmach version which I'm pretty pleased with. Earlier this week I replaced my shifter illumination assembly with a genuine new in box unit I found on ebay. Also replaced the vinyl trim around my seatbox with the new replacement LR part from RN. Oh and I replaced the rear loadspace mat. All this looked like a simple weekend job when I ordered it, it took two frustrating days and a 20' roll of double stick tape.
