Greased my GBR DC driveshafts (front and rear) for the first time after 3k miles. Took forever since I had to figure out how to use a grease gun for the first time. The centering kit was the most challenging but not too bad in hindsight.

Took it out for a test drive right after, and it must be psychological, but it FELT smoother. Should go faster next time

What have you done to your Defender today.

Couple over the past few days... Click in steering issue, solved (1 loose nut on union joint near steering box) checked and tightened all others.
SDO fairlead installed finally, which brings my on board bottle opener count up to 2, a 100% improvement and allows for beverage dispensement from the front saving you a 10' walk to the tail gate !!!

Looks great too


Forgot the obligatory picture

Just a couple little things. New fuel seal and stainless fittings at fill neck and installed an old Land Rover dealer plate frame from Reno.

Ok, so I bought some Fiber Fix to try out.
I got the heat wrap and the regular.
I used the heat wrap to repair the plenum hose since it will see some engine bay temperatures.

It turned out pretty nice.

Installed rear disc brakes today. What a dirty, greasy mess but the truck does stop much better.

Fixed my not working diff lock. It was also my first time taking out the transmission tunnel and floors. I used it as an opportunity to clean the panels up while they were out. Overall pretty simple.

I cleaned and adjusted the linkage, and then backed out the diff lock switch a couple turns. Now I can hear it click into engagement and the dash light comes on.

1) replaced 3yr old 20k mile Aframe ball joint (was full of water suspect this lead to early failure)
2) replaced 200tdi exhaust manifold to turbo gasket
3) repaired crack in rear door frame by middle hinge (due to failure of tub support for middle hinge that was repaired a week or so back)
4) installed new fuel tank

Think I am ready for the National Rally now....

Since I was at home in my driveway with air tools it wasn't bad. Would've been better if it hadn't failed so soon though! The one I put in three years ago was a Delphi and I installed a Lemphorder this go round.
