Put in a stereo so we have something to listen to when we're not moving.

Pablo,
Beer and pizza make the engine swap go easier. Neighbors show up to eat, drink and watch then get guilted into helping.

Well...last couple of days - Calipers, Rotors, repack bearings, changed hub seals - on all four. Good looking bling!

In between waiting for parts from RN for that, I decided to change out the fuse panel. Here are before and after....amazingly everything works! I did use those fuses that light up when blown for easy replacement.

Looking good! Wiring is one of the most difficult, time consuming jobs on a Defender for sure...

Did a rear cross member yesterday- just love that job.

Even using Drew's borrowed jig the job just doesn't get better

Yep unhooked your battery in prep to pull the engine and put a wrench on the starter to unhook the
pos cable and when it touched it was fourth of July. You can imagine the flow of verbiage....hidden frigging 2nd battery,
I mean who hides the 2nd battery ?

Do nothing - you're good to go!

I replaced a fuel spill pipe on the rearmost injector, cleaned all the oily sludge out of the handbrake and used brake cleaner on the rather oily brake shoes and was rewarded with an MOT pass on the first attempt. The mechanic did point out a slightly worrying amount of corrosion on a brake pipe, I think it's the last original steel pipe left on the truck, so it'll get replaced during the upcoming holidays.
