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.

That is actually just a lock. There is still a catch and a latch.

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?

There is no underdash cable. Its a lever that you reach through the grill to actuate. Much like a series truck.

Picked up parts at powder coater.

I repaired by brush bar so figured I'd post the results.

Had a small dent from PO - used Lab Metal to fill it and the powder coater lowered the temp of the oven a bit in an effort to ensure it would stick.

Looks good - I know it's there (not as smooth as the rest of it) but most won't see it.

Overall happy - especially since I had the bumper, brush bar, light bar and Hella's all coated for $300. Dropped off the roll cage and rear bumper this morning.

Well, After watching countless YouTube videos and endless custom car programs on cable I tried my hand at painting my Defender. I bought 2 part primer and Dove Gray Hot Rod Flatz from TCP Global in San Diego. The shipping wasn't cheap but it is shipped as HazMat.

I bought the best HVLP gun that Harbor Freight sold.



After a bunch of masking, wet sanding the primer, and some simple paint and hardener mixing:







The painting part was easy, all and all about 45 minutes for the two coats. The prep work took many hours, I now understand why even a cheap paint job isn't so cheap. Next up, spraying bed liner in the interior and start putting things back together.

Just finished cutting aluminum pipe for new intercooler piping and finally found a lower radiator hose that was the correct shape for my engine/rad combo. Getting it to fit was such a bitch because it was like 1mm or so too small on one end and there was hardly any space between the power steering and the lower hose connection. Tomorrow will be filling with coolant and hoping I didn't fuck anything up with the install of the rad/intercooler.

Busy weekend. I re-sealed and installed a disco 1.2 transfer case. Apparently the low mileage 98 disco 1 case I got cheap as chips is actually a 99 disco 2 version. I am now all to familiar with all the differences. Spent longer swapping bits than I wanted, but turned out great and drives nice. Tomorrow I will take it for the highway test.

Then installed a new t/f +2" full set of m/d springs and socks.

Can't get the app to up load pics without crashing. Will post some later.

Edit: or it was uploading and the error message was the error. Lol

I wheeled it rausch creek with nathanwind, cgalpin, and jefhuf (as part of an occ event). I found some stuff missing / broken along the way:

1. Need another gas cap again. I'm currently running a lelofab aftermarket cap but eventually need to buy genuine.
2. Right front shock lost its nut at the axle.
3. Swamper at 5psi lost a bead on the trail so i rolled up partway through a rocky section on a freestyle wheel accidentally. Many thanks to the guys for helping me fix broken stuff in the pouring rain.
4. Steering box main nut lock tab washer is not doing its job...need to replace.
5. Steering drop arm ball joint has a ton of play in it. Needs replacement.
6. Diff lock linkage is snapped at the lt77 end. It looks like it snapped right at the pivot. Need a new one.
7. Right slider bent up due to highlifting and slightly squashed the bottom of the front right wing. Need to reinforce current sliders or fab new ones

On the good side, the chromoly hd tie rod didn't bend, the steering guard is still fine, and i found a great powerwash place in leesburg.

Weather was really quite miserable but had a great time!!

What did you have to change around other than the linkage? I have access to a really low mileage DII transfer box, but I haven't done any research on what's involved in swapping it.

Front drive flange is different iirc, you can use a dii shaft. The rear tailshaft doesn't have provisions for the speedo sending unit



i installed my kexby seat covers and cleaned out a mouse nest
