Installed new window channels and a regulator for the right door. And while I was at it, took some steps to quiet things down.

First step was to run a few beads of adhesive between the door frame and outer skin to stop vibrations.




Window frames were free of corrosion and luckily all the window channel screws came out easily.



In went the new channels.



Once the window channels were in, it was time for some sound deadener.



And since I had everything out, I figured I might as well go ahead and add some sound deadening on the firewall and transmission tunnel.



Next up, the driver side......

Yeah, but honestly I'd then have to paint...and even more honest I'm sure I'll just bash it again anyways.

Got that tach installed, and the aux lights wired. Put a old style push/pull light switch in the column where the choke cable used to be for the aux lights. All while tornadoes were rolling through the area.

Nice...I did that same Blue Sea dual USB in the NAS 90 in the dash area where I had removed my A/C controls - it fit perfectly. Did you hardwire them? It's nice to keep your stuff plugged in hot and charged when the truck is off.

That's a great mod. I always have a charger hanging out of the cigarette lighter in the dash.

Installed an Allisport Intercooler, it brought the 110 alive with the BAS remap! Wow what a difference.

Now here is the part I messed up with- took the hood off, left the bushings in the hinge. Took it for a ride after installing without the hood on to validate i didn't have any leaks. Now i am trying the quickest way to get some bushings

New glow plugs and wire installed. Also put the t stat at back in from the motor swap back in July. Margret is much happier now. I am going to wait to tackle the small drip from injector pump area. I can use it to track the truck in the snow.
Later today I plan to get the rack/tent off for the winter season, and remount the led light bar for winter play.

Removed old rear springs which were starting to sag under the weight of new exocage and rear ladders. Replaced with Terrafirma TF027V rear coils. Placed TF027VDS on the right side and TF027VPS on the left side of the truck. Based on the results, the truck was probably lifted slightly more than 2" with the mods it came with. Now the truck sits level and hopefully will stay level with all the junk I end up putting into the rear

----

Lacking reverse in the 90, I used my CRV + tow straps to pull the Defender out of its parking spot and drove the truck in 4th/Low Range to a secluded area with less wind and more privacy for potential work.

Started tearing into the LT77 to figure out why it is jammed in 4th. No idea yet what is wrong.

95% done with the half cab project/install

The color match is slightly off but I can live with it. Bedliner on the roof portion for durability and sound deadening.

I'm pleased with the results but I lost a little room to slide the seat back further. Good thing I'm 5'7" :/)

Timing is right as it was sub 30s today!

Good point! But I've had the springs for a month and they took literally 20 minutes to install. The tranny on the other hand....
