Went out to the Cars n Café at Moulin Bistro in Newport Beach yesterday. Rick (orange defender) hooked me up with some new (to me) parts! Slapped on the light bar, lights, and headlight guards right when I got home!

Not exactly today, but just now getting around to posting photos...


Installed the new Safari Equipe sliders, snorkel, and swapped the old 267/75/16 BFGs for the new 255/85/16 rubbers.

Here are some before and afters:











And the best thing anyone can do to their truck...drove it to the mountains:




Not pictured, but also accomphised... installed the Trailhead4x4 oil cooler lines and swapped out the clear lenses installed by a PO for some factory lenses, front and rear.

Slapped some new wiper blades on. For anyone who's interested the Rain-X 13" blades clip on in <1min. Grabbed a pair for $8/blade (sold individually not as a pair) from Amazon.

Got my rhd 200tdi 83 110 cali legal, I chose some slightly less ostentatious plates this time around tho.


For thoes wondering, I just took my ny title to a third party dmv courier service. He said as long as I owned it in another state first for two years and it was never cali registered it was all good. They did a vin verification right there and asked me engine type (gas/diesel). He stated that grey market didn't matter, rhd didn't matter, and a non US vin didn't matter. He also said that some specialty vehicles like this will only get registered on a serial number because they don't have vins.

So really truly your mileage may vary

I think that this would be nearly impossible with a fresh import.

Still struggling with cruise control install in Puma.

Not today but over the last three weeks.
Replaced transmission, clutch, slave cylinder.
Rebuilt bent center crossmember.
Deleted the muffler, new exhaust from down pipe and back.
Freshened up the battery box, installed battery hold down, aux fuse panel.
Installed fog lights.
Corrosion, rust and exfoliation repair all over.
Installed new used Wolf wheels.
New motor, transmission and transferase mounts.
Replaced failed boost diaphragm in fuel control.
Adjusted valves and replaced rocker cover gasket.
Think thats about it.

New switch plate

I'm doing some interior updates and wanted to add some new switches including replacing those below the steering wheel (lower right on RHD). Stock parts pic below.



Decided to cut the new face plate out of sheet aluminum. Traced the old one, adjusted the dimensions for the new switches, and got to work with the Dremel.



Turned out pretty well for a first attempt. Later I'll powder coat it black to match the interior.

Nicely done. I admire your drive to make your own parts. I cop out and buy the billet aluminum stuff Jason makes.

BTW have that lock arm and hood side catch pulled and in a ziplock bag for you.

Thanks. Jason's parts look to be of excellent quality and I was very tempted. But I figured I'd give it a shot and it was a rewarding project.

Ill PM you about the lock arm. Thanks for finding one for me!
Edit: Uncle Douglas, your PM box is full!

Yours if you want it, once I get around to wiring the new switches in place. Fabricating the plate took longer than expected and I was running low on daylight. Plan to tackle the wiring during the weekend of the 18th.
