What have you done to your Defender today.

Replaced the nutserts for the bezels. I have no idea how these were even holding a screw in but they did. The picture is of two broken and two new nutserts .


Replaced the broken window tab. Easier than I thought without taking the whole door apart.



Also installed A-pillar trim and the foam padding that insulates the transmission hole.

Installed a new door card. Which was a longer process than expected. Lots of test fitting and cutting a little at a time. Then when done I took my son fishing.

Installed a pair of Corbeau LG1 seats, hence my FS ad for all 7 old seats & console.

Attempted to mount TerraFirma sliders but they are missing the nuts to secure the bolts.
I'll finish up tomorrow.

After looking at the boxes suspiciously in my garage for several months, finally giving Sawtooth rims a try. Am not convinced they look better than my old skool silver modulars. But you be the judge. They somehow make my 235/85/16 coopers look smaller ...

Yes. That way you don't get dust in your eyes and you can bolt them on without an assistant supporting them.

These are the same as the LED that comes on the Autobiography, but in DOT spec.

How hard were those lights to mount?

Harold, glad to see you got them installed and are happy with the product!

To those wondering, the "kinks" were not with the rock sliders themselves, but rather FedEx's almost impressive ability to annihilate packages. :

I greatly appreciate Harold's patience while I worked to make it right for him.
