Fixed rear brake light wiring issue. (Thanks to my Dad being in town). Always nice having a second set of hands.
Repaired rear door lock, one of the bolts had pulled through the metal so it wasn't closing properly. Also replaced the bearings and seals on the left rear axle.

Are you talking about the safety solenoid?

I ditched all those. They will fail when ou least expect it.

yeah, I guess that sounds like the proper name for it. What's the right way to delete that thing?

I don't have great night vision, to me massive. Coming from modern cars the stock Defender headlights barely did anything. The LED are like a new luxury car. While off with the chrome housing, they don't stand out too much which i liked. Plus they were a option on Defenders so it isn't too aftermarketish.

Where did you buy them? Actually where did you buy all your exterior lights?

Definitely on my list of upgrades this winter.

Some people remove it completeley.
But then you have to make a blanking plate to replace it.

I've done it that way, but now I just cut off the actual locking pin...

Replaced the broken side window. A PO of the sides put in some CR Laurence trailer Windows 37x15, and they still make them. Photo is job half done.

Got two things done this week. Disc Brake Disco axle installed, it was more ass pain picking it up in my Golf than installing it. The next thing was the Exmoor trim locking cubby box. This is the metal one. Got it for a good price from Exmoor as it was scratched. Now I have a place to put my elbow when I am driving.

That box is really nice. I just got the standard one. Not a fan. It looks too narrow and cheap.

200TDI timing belt. Overall pretty easy job. I got lucky in that the crank pully, fan, and water pump bolts came out pretty easy

On the 95:
Washed and waxed
Removed middle seat in anticipation of cubby.
Replaced hood release cable, mechanism, and latch.
Removed, cleaned, painted and reinstalled grill and surrounds.
Installed bonnet hinge bushings.
Replaced door lock button trim.
Tightened up roof bolts and side panel bolts
Continued dynamat... Work in progress
Removed nasty-ass seat covers.
Removed driver and passenger seats, cleaned all tracks and underneath, reinstalled.
Went to vacant parking lot and scraped mud, sand, rocks, old Waxoyl, grease, and other shizz from the frame and body. (Quite the pile of stuff, and this is after a two hour car wash underwash)

Installed a Terrafirma HD kit, upgraded the oil lines and stuffed some 315's on her. What do y'all think!?
