What pistons did you use?
I just used a set from Atlanic British--EACparts. Cheap and quick. Took about 1/2 hour, 20 minutes to clean the caliper, 10 to replace pistons and seals. Maybe less.

I'd bet half of us have at least one or two. I'd read it.

Well, I made a cardboard mock up of my interpretation of a retro vertical grille. Will be making two one with center lights and one without center lights for both of my RRCs.

I change the design of the arc on the vertical slot to more of a box with .25" fillets.

I know.. some of you dislike 5 bar but I needed some traction and support on my hood and wing tops. Rolling the spare down the hood and off the wing feels/sounds less "damaging" now
I picked up a set of Tithonus take offs. Might throw a final coat of paint on to get rid of rivets..

Looks sweet! Did you rattle can the 5 bar and repaint your bonnet? Both look really good.

I wire brushed and cleaned them up with acetone. then hit them with rustoleum "bed liiner" spray, I wanted that texture and it adheres really well. touched up easy. The body and bonnet was resprayed earlier this year.

Done a lot recently but the best small mod was replacing the interior dome light assembly.

Basically before the fix I had to kiss my car's @ss just to get the light to turn on for a couple of seconds.

With the new unit my truck is now reasonable to get into when it's dark outside.

Best of all, the light comes on automatically when the doors are opened. FANCY!!!

Oh and to be clear I've upgraded the actual light to an LED at the general advice of this forum and it is fantastic.

Usually don't like 5 bar but think it is a great add on for the tops of the fenders. That's where I put my wrenches when working under the hood and I've used it as a step ladder for certain things.

Like the thinking behind the 5 bar on the hood too - #formfollowsfunction

Keep the exposed rivets tho!

Thanks for the pic! I've been mentally trying to figure out how to lay out the back of my 110 for a while now.

The rear facing bench seems like a good idea especially with a bulkhead. I might do that and have 2 lock and folds in the back so people can step thru to sit on the bench. And the people in the back might be able to have an actual conversation in a loud Defender.
