What kind of boat is that? Can one person get it on/off?

Like the drawer. What did you build it out of? Thinking of similar project.

Built the frame out of aluminum tubing and connectors from Brunner Enterprises.. A little pricey, but very easy to custom make what I needed without resorting to TIG welding(had to build it around the rear air unit, which gave me places on either side.....right side has a third Optima for fridge only, left side has stereo amp and isolator wiring for third battery.) The aluminum frame is extremely light weight, and I used 3/8" marine plywood for the top and drawer front. Drawer pan was fabbed by local guy out of aluminum (I think around 28x36x8) and I sourced 150 lb. full extension slides off of ebay. Used rivnuts as much as possible to easily remove if needed.

I'll attach pictures of the build later today when I get home.

Sea Eagle 9.5FT. Basically a poor man's Avon/Zodiac. I paid $450 for it including a 2-cycle Johnson outboard. Basically stole it. I lifted it onto the top of the Ninety but it was a pita. Much easier with 2 people. Wondering about an poutboard bracket on the back of the LR...

Swapped the 84 degree thermostat for a 72. Ten minutes to change and it made a world of difference.

Where do I begin? If you're not working on your Defender 6-7 days out out of the week you're not living! ha! Finally painted my new hinges for the rear tailgate in the penultimate effort to stop my tailgate from rattling. After mixing the British Racing Green something got in to me so I started working on my driver side rear corner which I had already primed some time ago after some girl in a, shall I say 'little' car, rear ended me in a parking lot. I learned that diamond plate when used with non-powder coated allen screws can be a pain. The last screw securing the diamond plate rear corner protector was very rusty so the head stripped, it put up a pretty good fight before I finally got it off. Sometime ago I called RoversNorth to get the correctly powder coated allen screws because I had lost 1 or 2 during installation and found out they don't sell those separately from their diamond plate kits. oh well! Also re-rivetted my capping on the passenger side at the upper 90 degree point by the tailgate as this area was constantly under stress from the weight of the spare tire carrier and the now removed worn out hinges. This caused the rivet there to loosen over time and the capping would consequently flex depending upon whatever loads the tailgate hinge was under.

Painted my bumper. Spent more time than I expected tarping and taping around it. Prob would have been quicker to remove the damn bumper.

My thoughts exactly when I was masking off my drivers side rear panel. Aren't those little tabs from the rear cross member that have two bolts that mount to the body just the best?! JK. No they are a biiiach to mask around! I'm thinking why am I doing this when I know someday I'm going to have to remove this rear crossmember and have it replaced at which point I can then respray the whole rear tailgate and rear panels! Argh!

LED headlamps

Finally had an opportunity to install some new LED headlamps this evening. It was a little tricky figuring out how the bowl, spring, retainer ring all worked but the installation was super simple and quick otherwise. I wired the DRL arch to run with the front upper running lights. Waiting for a new headlamp switch to ship before I'll be able to really appreciate the new lights, but they look great so far!

Looks good. Like the arc way better than the jeeper eyes or the parentheses

: ~ == ~ : > : @ == @ : > : ( ) == ( ) :

What did I do to my defender today? Ripped off the rear view mirror ;-) Actually it was my 16mo daughter jungle gym-ing it. Kind of nice not having it in my immediate field of view.

Haha playing around inside my 110 is one of my daughter's favorite places. She loves pretending the rear windows are an ice cream stand (she's 3). Can always count on the little ones to break something playing 😂 Nice thing about the mirror gone -- if you can't see anything behind you, there's nothing there!

Pretty cool looking. How do they perform from inside the cabin? Do they really light up the whole road? Just wondering cause my sister's Lexus RX330 has projector lights like this and they're incredible at night. I have Hellas now and while they're pretty good they're nothing like projectors.

I haven't been able to see the low beams yet because I need to order a new switch (my old headlamps fried the switch) but I have put on the high beams and they're really impressive. I was always a little disappointed with the old headlamps and these new ones really put out a nice, crisp, white light. I'll post a photo
update if I can get a picture to accurately represent the results. I snapped a photo of the 110 in a parking garage today on my iPhone. I couldn't help it. I'm just thrilled with the way the look so far.
