Finally got my attic installed. Now a place to put soft things and not get stepped on by kid or dog.

Replace leaky overflow tank.

Best part of job: finding a loose cap on it from last week when it was at the dealers, they refused warranty claim, charged me for looking at truck. Avalon Premium Cars GmbH, JLR dealer, Stuttgart, Germany. Part of the wonderful Emil Frey Gruppe.

Thanks, dicks!

Glove box and more

Installed Britpart glove box in 110. If you are doing a Puma dash, get one of these kits. Utilizes dead space, and give a little more accessable storage.

Replaced steering damper with TerraFirma unit.

Pondered bolts, sprayed with penetrant, skidplate in garage waiting.

Replaced rear door hold-down strip. Pulled carpet up when Dynomatting, and went to remove screws to retuck carpet. Screws frozen, just as cheap here to order a stainless piece and screws as to go get screws from OBI (german home depot).

Installed my Father's Day present. High back rear seats replace the old low backs. What an upgrade! Safer for the kids.

Look great !! I am hoping to do this soon. Did you use the recliner kits or go standard? How do adults fit in them?

I did not use the recliner kit. Adults fit fine in the seat itself, but the seatbelt bulge on the c pillar gets in the way of my broad shoulders. I'm 5'10". I was impressed by the quality and ease of installation. I got black vinyl from rovers north.

The quality is incredible and they are very comfortable. For defenders the seat bottom lifts up. The defender seat brackets are very well designed and made.

They are the nicest thing in or in my rig.

The distributor for Scheel-Mann is on the forum - TPond is a long time 300tdi 110 owner and all around good guy.

We are the first US retailer for the Defender Scheel-Mann seats, as soon as we have inventory available to provide we will post up pricing, stock items, and special order options.

Tidied up

Did some rust remediation underneath. Ordered up new replacements for the rusted vent surround replacements. Ordered a new windshield as the plastic sandwiched between the two pieces of glass has turned into a prism. Polished the hood ornament. Repainted the shovel on the wing. Probably going to add calipers to my order. Finally installed an old army supply box to the roof rack just to make sure I don't have the clearance to park in any parking garages ever again.

Finally got my 90! After a few months (in the shop awaiting replacement parts in UK to remove turbo for import purposes) it finally arrived today.
Shout out to all of those that take the time to reply to questions and post their experiences. Thanks to all of you and I look forward to further interaction and contribution.

is that tilt shift? I'm not a photographer, I just like things that look miniaturized.

Ignition Switch Hotwire/Bypass (emergency field repair)

Not something I've done to "my" Rover per se, but something that I put together to use for a trail spare for the next inevitable poor sap that I'm out with that has their ignition switch fail on them (which, to be honest, I probably get 2-4 people a month reach out to me on how to bypass/hotwire the ignition switch due to failure).

Anyhow, put together an emergency "plug-and-play harness" complete with the switch and labeled connectors to throw in the truck / box of spares for the next emergency repair....should literally now be a 5-minute (or less) solution for someone with a failed ignition switch:

I've made a few of those over the years with spares on board for other fellows. The last similar item was way to open the circuit on the coil to shut the truck off. Their truck wouldn't shut off but could start just fine. So I made a jump wire with a switch to open the hot side of the coil till they got home to change out the switch. All good things to keep on board. 'Cause you just never know.
