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.

Awesome and thanks. I've got a call into the Dealer to order those things. I'll have to take some pictures of the oil cooler lines tonight. I know enough to hope that they are not stock although I did look at them over the weekend and they seem a fair distance from the manifold. Anyway thanks so much guys, (and girls)..

I'm just busting your chops - we usually don't ask "how stock does my truck look?" haha. You'll soon realize there are things that were stock that were absolute crap that are worth upgrading to an improved design before and/or after they fail. New oil cooler lines being of utmost importance to change BEFORE they fail. Also, the air intake hose you have in there is a nice upgrade, and one that many of us have switched to. Aesthetics are one thing, but function is another.

Good to hear that your truck is up and running. Good luck.

So what was wrong with your truck Josh?

I cut this little bugger out last night.

And took a stab at a little engraving to see what I could do.

The first one is a cover for my chunk of R380 I'm using as a spacer between my motor and the LT230. I took a picture of it installed but it came out like crap and couldn't be bothered to take another (since it's already removed).

The Engraving was just a test to see what I could do before trying it on something useful.
