This one looks like it will go in flush, is this the model you used? Blue Sea Dual USB Charger Plug #1017

Nope, 1016. I installed without the rectangular bezel in a td5 center dash. Perfect fit/function.

This should be a great improvement.

No notes really and just a couple of photos. It's a Defender 200tdi so it was about as straightforward as it gets. I had never done anything like this before so it was a big deal for me. This page was a big help along the way. http://www.glencoyne.co.uk/tdiguide.htm

I did too much to list. However, adding windows to me soft top is an add on that I must note. I've killed some of the blind spots.

Speaking of soft tops.....

New custom tonneau cover made in only 3 day turnaround! Marine canvas shop named AMC Canvas in my town did this awesome job.

Better than anything I could of purchased from the UK.

I'm totally digging the versatility of the ROW trucks. Truck cab has its advantages for sure.

On the new motor I had the flywheel machined, changed the pilot bushing, rear main seal and installed a new clutch and pressure plate in prep for the engine swap hopefully next weekend.

I am a slacker so I resemble that remark! My garage is exploding with parts and every project I do I get a little bit more floor space back.

I would live to put a 200 or 300tdi in my truck next year. My family in the UK could find me a engine for about 200-400 in Leeds or Kent. The problem is finding a good importer to ship it here. The last tine I checked, It seemed that some importers were trying to push their engines on to me. I'll get one in a year or so.
