you might have a viable future product in the works there. I've slept in my 110 a few times and I definitely get how this would be a huge help. I love how simple and effective is sounds.

I'm starting to get blisters from cutting these horse stall mats. Used four of the 1/2" 3' X 4' mats to finish the rear seat area and load space. I used a Forster wood bit to relieve the back where the floor bolts were to get it to sit flat, everything else was cut with a utility knife.

Very nice. Next time use soapy water and they are much easier to cut.

Razor knife seemed to work best just a bit time consuming. I did initially try a circular saw, not good. It two seconds the house smelled of burning rubber, wife didn't appreciate that

I bought one of these a while back and it has turned into a very valuable tool.

Not me, no. The dude just above me (driver). He wanted to use my truck though! The wedding coordinator commented she thought it was a better entrance than the groom who came in by helicoper. So I'll call that a win. I just wish I had washed it first...

Yes-^^ this ^^

I have a tiny spray bottle; just a few drops of dishwashing soap + water, 9:1 ratio.

Use a sharp razor or carpet blade and it will cut rubber like buttah...

Open carry during the cutting is optionsal but encouraged.

I replaced the large rear suspension bushes that have the 3 bolts holding them to the chassis.
Great improvement in stability, I'd got used to the slight twitch needed on the steering wheel when coming on or off the power but the return journey to Bovington Tank Museum was rather tiring -250 miles with lots of rear axle steering input kept me focused.

All fixed, drives in a straight line and the strange knocks have gone too

That is next on my list of to-do's and install the Rover Tyme trailing arms.

Today, Retimed ignition down to 7 from my experiments higher - and installed a New MAF which was a not needed part from my recent stalling issue... i also put back on the silicone MAF to intake hose and stored my OEM parts for the future.

I also have a new TPS sensor to install in the next day or 2 when i do the oil change - then i'll tackle the arms and bushing.. and maybe the extended range fuel tank that are on my todo list.

How much advance were you running and why did you bring it back down?

I've played with 12-10 lately..
Pings mildly at 12 on regular gas, I turned it down to 10, and then 7 which smoothed out the 2-3k range nicely which is where the vacuum advance starts kicking in
