Yesir. Though just an Instagram filter. I do have a tilt shift lens for my DSLR. It's fun for making cities look like models

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.

(sorry, I can not seem to figure out how to post thumbs of photos, I click the insert photo button but it only creates an [IMG] bound URL that shows up as a broke image link)
Isn't it a fantastic moment? Mine came to Pennsylvania from Minnesota on a car carrier. As soon as the guy pulled up I couldn't wait for him to drive it off. I felt like a little kid.

In last month, I've refreshed the serpentine belt, wired up the aux fuel tank (de-rust all the metal connector pieces and replaced the hardened hoses), added the rear LED work lamp, swapped out PIAA halogen to LED's driving light, wired these to factory toggle at factory switch locations. And lastly, the "sexy" update is to Pilot Automotive VP-3106C LED headlights. Got these off seller on ebay for $420/pair (amazon has them for $490).
These are the same as the LED that comes on the Autobiography, but in DOT spec.

Got the rest of the windows tinted today. Limo tint for the back and AZ legal up front. Much cooler inside the truck.

That looks really good. I had that done to my 90 a couple years ago. Huge difference.

I finally got my AC running a few weeks ago. Good thing because of the temps in the valley the past few weeks.

Installed Psyoptic Rock sliders today. Makes my 90 feel like a tank.

Thanks to Jon Carter who worked through some kinks in the process to deliver a top notch item.

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.
