Caledonian Blue or extremely close to that. I painted the cab portion and the color is just a little off from the main body (using LR paint codes)

Replaced exhaust manifold gaskets on the drivers side manifold. It's awesome I can breath again in my 110 without having both bulkhead vents open and my head out the window.

I can't believe how quite it is in the truck now. The best part was moving it out of my wife's way when she got home tonight. She rolled down the window on her car because she didn't believe the 110 was running.

It's sitting out in the cold while a 101 is getting prepped for WR pre run. Think Isuzu Diesel going in the place of a Perkins.

Installed stainless steel brake lines from British Atlantic. Started on Sunday at 1 and finished this afternoon at 3. Don't want to do that again. A second set of hands would've sped it up. Routing was the hardest. Had 3 squirters and a dripper; I had to tighten fittings more.

How was the kit? Worth it?

It was worth it. The old lines were rusted. The nuts and flexible hoses were seized. It was a safety issue. I don't think I would been able to form my own stainless steel lines. I'm hoping that I don't have to replace them again in the next 15 years on this 1997 D90. It might be full electric conversion by then though.

The kit didn't come with the three way fittings for the rear nor the plastic pieces to hold them in place. Some of the bends didn't match factory exactly but it's more than half the cost of the ones from Rovers North.
