The dynamat makes it actually sound like a car door when you close it as opposed to the thin metal sound you usually get. Didn't get to drive it really at all today but it did reduce the vibration of the sliding windows. I figure every bit helps.

Installed a great new top I bought from another forum member. It's a tickford with a custom belt rail added so it fits a 1995 ST. Pretty cool.

Installed a Bimini top I acquired from an EBay deal. It came with what he said was a carry bag for the top, which actually turned out to be a case for my bestop windows. All in all it was a good day for my Defender, but DAMN that last snap took forever!

Trying to post from the phone and not patient enough to let it load...

Added a double layer to the driver/passenger floors with a sealed airspace in between to act as insulation and sound barrier. Stainless upper threshes with captive carriage bolts for a seamless and protected entry.

Ok ..I like that. So there is the floor itself and then the stainless on top for two layers total? Can I see where the transition is into the foot well please?

Yes, pulled a couple items from the warehouse to get some of the 110 projects done before Overland Expo next month...

Added a rear cargo mat, new wiper motor, resealed the rear windows, trimmed and insulated the LaSalle fiberglass door cards, etc....



Still need to do some maintenance on the swivels and brake pads before the 3k mile drive.

And fabricated a tunnel adaptor to convert an old seat box to the new R380 floors and tunnel.

Too much lately!

Exmoor Diamond XS Front Seats, matching Tuffy & Exmoor matting for floor and seat box
UK Mudd Console
Carling switches
VDO Boost Gauge
And all kinds of non-bling items. Like PSA pump, water pump, rebuilt turbo, 17" electric fan, new hoses, Blue Sea Systems Fuse Block sub panel, YRM battery tray, YRM lower door repair panels, new door hinges, new stainless hardware.

Still have to install the KBX grill and find some matching middle seats.

Bought a kit from RN to do the same thing you just did and its a solid spot for the jack like that.

That took some time. I had to make taller offsets for the Yakima 1A’s, then make some Faux gutters for the trailer frame. Weld it all up and see if it all fit together. It worked. Have to remove the bike rack to raise the top, but that takes all of 2 minutes. I also made these really inexpensive mounts for the HiLift Jack on the inside mounted to the support tube. They are just U bolts with some vinyl tubing, a plate with two holes drilled in it and a ˝” bolt welded to it, have about $5 into it.. Holds the jack very tightly, but away from anything rubbing it. I know mounting it inside doesn’t look so expeditioniny, but it doesn’t get stolen so often.

Finally got stainless bolts installed on the doors... took a new titanium drill bit for some, impact driver for others. WAY too much effort for such a small change. About 400 other rusted fasteners to go!

I love this look. It would've been nice to see the before and after photos.

* new RHD steering drop arm + ball joint installed.
* new steering arm ball joint installed (genuine)
* new 200tdi lift pump installed
* new lock washer on steering drop arm to fix nut loosening problem
* finally installed dual 800 lumen rock lights. Well, they're rock lights right now but honestly I have no idea where to put them. In all honesty they would be better served as under-bonnet work lights as wheeling at night is not something I plan to do.
* removed old York 210 with bad rod and moved magnetic clutch and main pulley to new York 210.
* building new OBA manifold + integrated wiring
