Finished mounting pioneer kit. Had to make a shovel mount as the RN shovel had a different angle then a MOD shovel. Painted the RN blue shovel, added some stain and polyurethane.

Had the straps made by strapworks. Many options and shipped in a week, all 4 for the cost of one genuine 8" srap!

Looks good!
Did you notice that I'd shortened the waste gate activating rod?

One man's trash is another man's treasure. Got a spare Tith 2.5na in case I need it. Don't have the itch for tdi yet so I'm happy with the extra lump.
Thanks Neil for the drop off.

Not a Rover, but since we completed the V8 swap in my 110, my dad finally got his turn to work on his toy, and my brother and I were more than glad to help.

1940 Pontiac Silverstreak. We started the engine swap today. Out with the old 327, and prepping the brand new blueprint crate 350 for install. My dad has been waiting patiently for months to start this while my swap dragged on an on.

Check this out. My classic has, very unfortunately, been sitting for almost 2 years. The brakes were ready to be replaced when I put it away, but it's time now for her to be reborn. So I go to put new rotors on and guess what I pull off?

Interesting...two piece rotors?

Glad I dont live in Mass anymore...although Virginia DOT thinks they need to dump a trillion tons of salt/brine for every snow flurry...

Installed RN bonnet mounted spare

Well these parts have been sitting in my garage for over a month and on this holiday break it seemed a good a time as any to tackle the install. I have to say that it went far easier than I expected with the exception of some rivets that where not long enough to go through the hood and the mounting plate so I had to drill them out and install using some spare nuts and bolts. That solution worked perfectly.

All in it took me about 4 hours some time of which I spent messing around trying to figure out how to take the bonnet off and it turned out far easier than I was making it.

I will say I have heard a lot of concerns about opening the hood with it on (not that I will do that but generally take it off to open) but even with it on it isn't as bad as expected. Visibility with the 7.50 x 16 is no worse than having my Lowrance Sat Nav mounted where it is in terms of visibility limitations.

Overall very happy with the install and look.

Let me know what you think.
