our lovely state is full of the crazy, but the state park system, including those at our many beaches, is actually quite good

Not really work "done to my Defender" but I made something so I could make parts for the Defender.

New welding table framed out of some scraps and a 2 new sticks of 1.5" square tube. It's 3x5 and I am planning on using C channel on the top so will have clamp points and hopefully have a flat surface (if I weld plate to this frame now it won't be flat).

Btw - welding in the heat the last 2 weeks has kinda stunk! Can't wait to finish it up so I can finish my tub mods.

I just machined this clamp from some scrap aluminum and had it powder coated. Now I just have to wire it up.

wow...looks solid!

I really like the convenience of system 28 tabletops, but they are really unnecessary. Your table looks more solid than most system 28's I've seen.

Thanks - it's a good mix of being solid and not too heavy.

I didn't know what system 28 was but a quick search seems it is like the acorn welding table tops. Both are very neat but a lot of money. I feel with the C channel top I'll have 80% of the function but at 20% of the cost

Put in a new windshield in the 110. Took me 45 mins tops. Started the rope at the bottom center and worked my way up on either side. Used a window suction grasperthingamabob, it allowed me to really give a good shove/pull all around.

I put heat insulation in and around the seat box, under the carpet on the trans tunnel and under the floor mats. it seems to make quite a difference. I also removed the center console and insulated that are. I used a product called Ez-cool. It was really easy to work with and inexpensive. Here's the link. EZ Cool Automotive Insulation heat barrier and noise reduction for cars, trucks, classic cars, street rods and much more

Thanks. How much did you use out of curiosity?

Bill, I got the the $45 roll, which includes 10' of tape and a razor knife. I believe that it's 10'x4' or something like that. I still have enough left if i decide to do the firewall. They ship really quickly as well.

It was used as it should be today - a little recreation and a little work. Carried Mountain bikes to the trailhead in the morning and collected Firewood in the afternoon.

I must also admit that I chuckled at the idea of collecting firewood in early August, then saw that ferniekids is in Canada. We Floridians have no idea.

I am a little late in stocking up for the winter. According to the hit book, which I just finished, "Norwegian Wood: Chopping, Stacking, and Drying Wood the Scandinavian Way", it should be done at leaf out in the spring! Believe it or not it is a good read!
