Took the truck to the auto skills center and changed the sals diff pinion seal due to a major leak/hemorrhage. Took way too long for such a simple job - way out of practice

Did you have to strip it or just kept driving it down the road and it all flaked off?

Funny!
Baking soda blasted, minor body work, re-sanded the entire truck, washed with soap and water then wiped down with a pre-primer solvent. I'll mask it tomorrow morning, wipe it with a tack cloth then HVLP gun the primer on. Wish me luck, I have never done this but have watched dozens of Youtube video's on the topic and have talked to several knowledgeable folks for tips and gotcha's. By this time tomorrow I will be a hero in my own mind or a failure with a lot of sanding to do.

Great video. I like "it fits four people in the back quite comfortably" line. She looks really good for being nearly 30.

Loaded up the provisions and gear for 3500 mile trip through Death Valley, Mojave and Yosemite. Will be a good test for all the major repairs and modifications over the last year. I leave in the morning and will take 2 weeks to complete and return home rover gods willing!

I regret not trying to get two more friends to go on the cross country trip.

It seems clarification is in order.

Most of the time, the 4 people in the back will be our nieces & nephew. They will have a blast.

The other times the rear seats will be used is when the rig is on St. Thomas in the USVI, hauling guests & family the 15 minute drive from the airport to the house.

I am not condoning riding in the back from Seattle to 'back east' for four full sized adults!

YMMV.

I used my truck today to purchase 8 go karts, 11 motors (for go karts), and 5 mini bikes. That should get me father of the week, and keep me from messing up my defender for a bit.

I grabbed some nice flared nut wrenches today that aided in my replacement of O2 sensors... Wow - new O2's really make a difference.

Then I tried out my new Bimini top. It's nice in the sun!

Paint restoration

I bought my defender almost a year ago and have wanted to restore my pain for as long. I got serious after the new year and started researching the process. I went on Youtube and found Junkman2000 to be pretty informative on technique, process and products.

So I purchased a Porter Cable machine polisher, Meguiars 105 and 205 polishes, chemical brothers clay/lube, hex logic orange and yellow polish pads.

Today I washed, clayed, put two passes with the 105 polish/orange pad and one pass with the 205 with yellow pad. Took 20 years of contaminants and oxidation off the truck in less than 7 hours of work. If you're looking to restore your trucks paint, I highly recommend the Junkman's videos. I'm thrilled with my results.

Looks great, Joe! Portofino Red really cleans up well with some light rubbing compound. Put some nice wax on there (Mothers 3 step is good) and it'll keep its shine for quite a while.
