I know I'm not the only one who's noticed this but ...Why is it that Doug looks like a 20-something y/o in his pictures??? He has a face like a kid. Really, go back and look I'm not kidding...must be nice.

After much wrenching and fighting the Lucas harness I installed a Flux Capacitor.

But with my 2.5na couldn't get up to 88kmh let alone 88mph.

Hence the late post.

Much like a flux capacitor, you can stuff banana peels, coffee grinds and other trash in a 2.5na and it will run.

Over the weekend, with the help of Jason and Anthony, I installed an auxiliary fuel tank in my Defender. I went with the Safari Equip unit that hold about 7 gallons. It is definitely nice to be able to drive more than 170 miles between fill ups. I've put about 70 miles on it since and the fuel gauge still reads full. The install would have gone a lot smoother if they hadn't left out an essential part!

Taking a week off to knock out a bunch of maintenance.
Today finished installing the rear exmoor lock and folds, resealed the front hubs, installed new bonnet cable, Replaced the rear door switches and binnacle. Removed the crappy headliner and all of the interior trim panels in preparation for resealing and painting the top, installing the PUMA rear seatbelt brackets and installing the garrison window rubber.

Finally got round to fixing the back door. When I bought it, the inside latch had been removed (so you couldn't get out) and there was no door stay. I bought a used one but it was short- so the door only opened to about 50 degrees. Bought the kit from Rovers North & now it 1) opens itself and 2) opens to almost 90 degrees. Wife is very happy!



Note: The entire rear door is shot (frame broken & rusted through in several places) but I have a replacement coming...

Changed the gear lube front and rear differentials and transfer case, fixed some gauges/lights and tidied up the rear wiring in preparation for new media player and focals in all four corners in the stock location. Spent some time cleaning up the underside, frame etc. Amazing what one can accomplish in just a few days of dedicated time. Shipfitters syndrome

Day 4

Day 4, replaced the rubber fuel hoses, finished installing the Garrison window seals and rebuilt the windows with new plastic channels etc. No more rattles! Installed the new 4.6 Tornado chip from RPI via Mark Adams. Other than the performance benefit no more "rough road" sensor input on a 97. Sweet!

After more than a year of working at it, I finally have my minor water ingress issues sorted in the 110. Last night's down pour resulted in dry cabin!
Now I can install the carpet without strarting a science experiment.

Day 5, Battery box cleanup, New grommets, installed the Pioneer media player in stock location, created a factory adapter to hook into factory wiring, weather pack connectors, 16 gauge wiring, techflex covering and shrink wrap on all wiring and routed through bulkhead and cleanly to the back. 5.25" focal speakers in all four corners at factory locations. Tedious. Looks clean, much better than stock, wireless streaming and bluetooth. At least not covered in grease today. Finishing up the details over the weekend and welding the cracks in the rear door. Good week.

Continuing to be surprised at how dynamat reduces perceived and actual sound levels. Its probably more a matter of absorbing sound but every bit I cover makes a difference. Completed most of the doors today.
Wish I had done the roof before I put it on.....

Modified my soft top roll bar to fit my pick up Cab. Seat belt brackets will bolt on and I can use it with both tops without removing it again.
