Well....its ready to go back together. If everything goes right Margret will be back on the road Wednesday. It will be a long couple of days getting stuff right.

And why it keeps posting pics upside down is beyond me.

That has to be the nicest looking 2.5 NA on the planet. Let's hope she runs as good as she looks.

Got her pulled out out of the shop today to get some sun. She was looking a little pale. Motor compartment got a good cleaning with ez off and degreaser. Hope to get her back in the shop and finish the hole so the motor can get dropped in Wednesday afternoon.
First things first.....the wife says I have to mow the yard before playing with my truck.......

Looks good Paul. They can be a pain...sometimes.

The hole is painted and all is as tidided up as it can be until the motor goes back in. I will be putting the final stuff on the motor today and be ready to slide it in Thursday afternoon. Before I put the motor in I am going to put on the "new to me" front skid plate.
I will get some good pics this after noon and get them up.

Took the wheel adapters I bought from a place in NV to a local shop.
As delivered to me, the hub on the adapter was too small for the hub on the M416. The PO had used a 3/8s machined plate to get over this problem.

Since I want the adapter to fit as flat as possible, having a hub of the adapter machined out enough to accommodate the M416.

He says we aren't metrosexual enough (which I'm ok with). I think its our graying hair.

progress..

Well, the headliner is at the upholstery store, I've received the battery box, ECU and cubby floor covers as well as the rear seat anchors back from the powdercoater, I tracked down an original cubby and had it recovered, located an original radio-still need two stock speaker covers-and am in the process of tidying up engine bay...

To that point, I am attaching a picture of how it currently looks and asking for advice on how "stock" it looks and what else I need to do to achieve that.

it appears to me that most of the pictures of 95 NAS Wagons have a hose that runs across top of fan shroud. Can someone please verify and point me in the right direction?

Thanks Board, having fun doing this.

Looks like you are missing the clip that holds the hose in place on the fan shroud, but yes, it does go over the fan shroud in an S shape.

Planning to use this for intercooler set up. Anyone knows if this would work or what would work for a full front Garett intercooler?

Picked up my truck from Felix's garage on Saturday after having the distributor re-installed and timed correctly, new re-cored radiator, and some A/C work done. It was really nice to finally have the truck up and running like she used to! Then went to Dan's place and helped him button up the alternator work he had been doing on his Series 1, although we had planned to take the top off of the S1 and he decided not to yet.

Then sat in 2 hours of traffic without the Defender stalling even once, or getting hot at all, and with nice cool A/C in the cabin.

Sunday I took the top off, and took the dog and drove out to Tom's place to go hang out with him and to check out how the truck was running some more. Then sat in more traffic without even a hiccup. It's great to have the old truck back!!

Your plenum/air intake hose isn't stock for 1995. And let's see a photo of the oil cooler lines. They may not be original either.
