We had a heat wave today it was in the 30's so I got the suspension done.

It was a tight fit backing her into the garage.



One side done. The fit was looking a little to tight for my liking. I had my wife come out before I moved it around to get to the other side to watch and make sure I didn't rip the garage door down.



And both sides done.



It raised the rear end about 2" that wouldn't be surprising except I put on stock springs..

Then I moved on to the leaking seal on the fuel level sender.



Then I washed it cleaned the garage up a bit and called it a night.

Almost done removing the LT77.
Ah... I was thinking that I'd put the Steve Parker oil plate in there when I'd put the 1.222 transfer box in. Good to know that that part did what it claimed. The cross drilled input gear was brand spanking new too. I'm sure I told you about the 1.222 transfer box upgrade, fitted after a rather expensive testing to destruction of a GKN overdrive with electric clutchless shifting on the 110. Sounded good on paper, not so good in real life.

for the odometer readings.
The speedo drive cogs are correct for 235's ie 110 gearing so the speedo will read correctly.

It was cold so I cleaned the garage and found my tail light guards on the shelf so I ducked outside and installed them real quick.

Thanks guys, it is definitely good to be a bachelor, although being married with kids gives you anbexcuse to use a garage!

I need to stop by harbor freight tonight and pick up a bearing puller. The neigbors haven't written me yet, but i'm sure they will at some point!

So my wheel spacers showed up today, so out into the 7 degree afternoon I went and installed them. The 110 definitely has a wider more aggressive looking stance with the spacers.

I tried to take pics but it was getting dark and my phone said it was to cold for the flash to work...

So you just get pics of the spacers.



and my ice tea that was out there with me, for 45 minutes....

Finished up the basis for my tablet mount, need to do a bit of finishing work to make it look a bit more presentable but it's functional for now.

Robert let me finish it first, then I'll post up on it. Right now it's total booty fab and I've got a bit of work to do to make it look right.

I went out in the snow and sound deadend my driver and passenger door. Put the door panel back on and then installed a new switch plate cover so my dome light switch doesn't dangle from the wires anymore. You can also see the fog light switch that I mounted where the choke cable used to go.

I am not the hugest fan of ARBs bumpers and aftermarket grilles but damn that front end looks good! Let us know what you think of those LEDs.

the lights are really bright which is good - however they kinda flash when going from high beam down to low. (but not from low to high beam)

i have them on a ARB relay system

The grill is an Aluminum Heritage Grill with the LR plaque removed

Paid money to a local shop for a crossmember swap, plus fuel pump and lines. Once it's back, swapping the driver/passenger doors. I anticipate that will suck.
