Repainted the 110 from the NATO black/green camo to match my 109 ambulance with Cyprus camouflage.

Installed Espar heater and vents last month, along with TUM RAD/HAZ insulation panels. A lot nicer now in the cold weather.

And second lastly second row bench seat for the little dudes.

All ready for the Winter Romp

Added footwell part of the Exmoor mats. Surprised and pleased that it's made from material that doesn't stiffen up in cold weather. But it's doesn't have much grip when wet with snow etc. we'll see what it's like on the road, but it looks good.

Bonnet hooks and snow shield

Took a couple of hours out of my evening to install some new parts. First I installed bonnet hooks. After installing my hood mounted spare tire, the interior cable activated hood release didn't work very well. It was straining and difficult to get the latch to release. So I removed the hood lock/release lever completely.

I measured carefully, marked out the drill holes and in no time had both bonnet hooks installed on each side. Piece of cake actually and they work fantastic. Now when I want to pop the hood I just release each side and it lifts straight up. Has a bit of that military look as well.

Also installed the snow shield for the heater intake. That was simple but it took me a couple of minutes to figure out what the plastic round spacers where for that were provided. I figured out they help the screws catch on when used as spacers since this unit doesn't sit flush like the stock heater/air intake.

Pulled some nasty-ass injectors. Fingers crossed Blue Ridge can do some magic. This boys and girls is what lies beneath. So when folks selling engines say "runs great", make sure you believe them. Nasty Injectors, shitty hidden tranny output shafts, wobbly crapped-out turbos, rusted out radiators. Make sure you can trust the guys you're buying from.

Yep - lots of comments on them ... they are only annoying if you worry about that kind of thing.

I missed them - I'll give it a few weeks to get used to it.

If not, I may have a slightly used set for sale

The mechanics did an amazing job with my air funnel and installed the boost pin (which would give me more hp and torque. I also added a new clutch slate & Master Slate cylinder.

Since I have a 3" Intercooler it blocked air from going through the radiator. Even with to 2 electric fans, air seemed to be diverted around, over, and under the radiator. The funnel allows air to go through the grille and forces it through the Intercooler and the radiator.

Power steering hoses replaced (farmed that job out)
D90tops hard top off to paint with brewie, and soft top back on.

Picked up base camp trailer - hooptie
It's an m101a1 with a contractor topper...
Probably going to paint it and add some glamping stuff to it, but first up is a power system for it so I can throw the fridge in there for events..

Still looking at light bars... Dunno may just go a crew cheapie setup since I have a hard time shelling out $1,200 for a little extra lumens and a nicer built light.. When I can get 10k lumens/each for $125.00
