took brush bar off and spiffed a little..

No sure why, but I've never been a big fan of the original brush bar. On my two previous 97's I put the "A" bars on...apparently they were declared "illegal" in the UK...retroactively as well..

Anyway, it's a helluva lot easier to wash and wax with no obstacle...

So what's the verdict? Internet trained hero, or failure?

Drove the truck Friday through Sunday for work. Think the headlights fixed themselves after all the bumping around I did driving the trails for the races. Now I need to fix the shaking and figure out why the Hellas stopped working.

Hero. Spent an hour trying to make the Harbor Freight HVLP gun function. Once we got past that it went on nicely. Sanding this week and paint hopefully next weekend.

I went with hood pins. I saw them on a Mil contractors Defender and liked the look.

Love your posts Tyler. Over the ten+ years I've known you there have been so many issues with your truck it's like what I imagine a mental patient goes through in therapy sessions. You either wheel/drive the shit out it or ignore it altogether. I don't know which by More power to ya bro.

installed new 2 piece de-cat pipe from ALIVE tuning.......
Man getting the existing cat out was not fun but still got it all done in a couple hours......

i wouldn't say there is a huge difference.....just feels a little more responsive and you can definitely here the turbo whine a lot more now.....which i like.........

I was just wondering about the round whole in the radiator panel. I saw a guy at the last Arkansas Rover Society rally that had a key operated latch on the front of his 90.

I see. Just added security? I think he was able to completely operate it with the key too, nothing to pull under the dash. Maybe easier than replacing a busted cable?

the amount of money I have sunk into it should make me a mental patient! It's easy to ignore when I have a perfectly good car to drive to work.
