Last time i pay $90 for an alignment on a Defender thats for sure.

Tow is also adjustable - basically same method minus the string - use a long enough level to check it and loosen the rear bar (easier to pop out the ball joints and true up the Tow and then tighten the bar.. I left mine slightly towed out on both sides for now (equal)

Caster is not adjustable.. so no point in trying to do it.

What are you adjusting other than toe?

Replaced the trailing arms with some heavy duty ones. The originals were unusually small, much smaller than what I've seen on other 110s.

Used a 34$ oil tarp off amazon to make a 3/4 surrey. Installed 3 additional grommets on leading and trailing edge. Laced with 550 cord.

Came out just how I wanted. Now to install Nas bench seat.

Replaced my 90's door seals. This item went from 'something I'll get around to' to 'something I should have done a long time ago'. Amazing how much diesel stink gets in from a few seemingly small gaps.

That's great and all but I'm going to need to see some photos of that super duty parked on the curb.

08 350 twin turbo, lots of work, but considering going back to a 1/2 ton truck.
Previous owner had a slide in camper setup at one point.

Heck yeah, just need to finish the big pieces and get a welder (the person, not the machine).

Installed a sound dampener and a thermal barrier. I also repaired the leaking rear washer. No more shower in the drivers seat while spraying the rear window.

I have that same problem, haha. Actually, yesterday I topped up my washer fluid and it started leaking onto the brake pedal, which is where is normally leaks when I would press the rear wash button. I guess I have to fix it now

Replaced the little spring in the rear door latch. Now I can actually lock the door without climbing through the car. Nice

Replaced the rusty tub nuts with stainless steel ones from mcmcaster. Snapped two of the weld nuts, of course one was on the plate directly in the middle of the tub :facepalm ...had to get really creative to get a washer and nut back there.

Followed that up with the front door sills with my daughter...a great little helper and got her first bloody knuckles. One tear, and then toughed it out. Proud dad.

Used the H20 Ingress bulletin and calked all of the ribs on the roof, drip rails, front lip above windshield, and windshield hinge covers....had a small leak that would run water above the front doors by the top of the A post if the truck was parked on an incline nose down...eventually I have to remove the headliner for cleaning, insulation and recover but wanted to try and stop the water...I guess if it continues removing the headliner is prob the only way to find the leak source...
