Wow, that's really helpful. I was planning on poring over wiring diagrams. What was throwing me off was that wire colours are different on one side of the connector from the other. Because this is a 200tdi retrofit, there's a lot that doesn't quite match up.

Got front RHS door open. Only took 2 hours! Rod from handle to lock catch was jammed thanks to some ghetto fab from previous owner when installing alarm system.

Wife will be happy to not have to jump from back seat to front seat.

I installed my heater box and nicely taped up all the exit point which I'm sure will give me an extra 20 degrees of heat and 6-8 hp at the wheels.

I did a LOT of fiddly soldering of new bullet connectors on my front light wiring harnesses and lights to replace several decades of dodgy wiring, only some of it mine.

I put the front left wing back on, but then realized I had to drill out a bunch of holes in the bulhead first, and also I forgot to add in my collapsible steering column which is likely easier done with the wing off, so I'll probably pull the wing off again until I get those jobs complete.

I looked around my garage in vain for my front door checks, as those are easier put in (in my case) before the wings go on.

I installed my trailer hitch, then installed it again with the backing plates.

Pulled enough wire on my truck to hook up a rear worklight & illuminated switch, rear 12v outlet, interior led flood, blue sea dual-usb port, hardwire for my garmin, and various other goodies!

You sound as bad as me...I also installed an accessory Blue Sea fuse box on the well behind the drivers seal as the battery box is too crowded to keep organized and my hands are too big to perform those delicate connections.

Did a shake-down drive up to Jeff's. Battery died when I stopped for coffee. Thanks to Galpin for an emergency jump start!

Spent 16 hours fabricating rear ladders for both sides of the truck, as well as an integrated tire carrier mount in the right rear ladder itself. Many thanks to Jeff for extremely large amounts of help. I'm not sure if that word's sufficient to describe it, but I'll use it.

Going to rattle can the ladders for now. At some point, I will have them blasted and powdercoated, but I have a lot of other things to take care of at the moment.

Cleared the doors. Next up: Mount the doors, then install internals.

Tightened lug nuts as they were coming loose.

Steering drop arm nut is coming loose as well.

I need to do an alignment. Swampers make even more noise when not aligned.

Battery is dying constantly. I think I know what the problem is (it's a wiring issue where some of the relays are constantly powered. Easy fix, I think.)

Pictures or it didn't happen.

Get a real battery or at least tighten your post connections!

Oh and to keep it on topic, I looked for jumper cables in my (dry) mud filled passenger seat box, and took the time to take the wet first aid kit out of the the "dry bag" to dry.

I swapped out the speedo for a used MPH unit. My old one only has 3000 km on it. I found a burned out bulb too. Now maybe I can see how fast I'm going at night. 1 of 2 bulbs isn't quite enough. I also swapped the panel of idiot lights out for a used one that I can actually see the pictures..... which makes me ask.... what is the (P) light? I've already got a light (that does nothing) that says Park Brake.

FINISHED the wiring project...in time for Conclave. Now it's on to sorting my trailer in the next 32 hours before I leave...

Removed the sways and installed the mud shoes and 1/2 rack. Now too tall for the garage, but ready for Conclave.

Not exactly something I did TO it, but certainly FOR it. I installed an electric brake controller on my LR3. Now to borrow my buddy's trailer to see how well the 3 will tow the 90. If it works well, maybe I can drive to more rover events, with climate control, cruise control, and the ability to approach the speed limits. (maybe).

Ok, I actually did this a month and half ago: ripped out part of garage door frame so D90 I just bought could fit inside.

I went to my fabricator's shop to patch a hole in the rear xmember.
After 17 years only, it's rotten inside to the point I'll start designing a bolt-on heavy duty replacement, then I'll chop and bin the stock one as soon as possible.

Fabricator was surprised the material was so thin, and we agreed on the retard design of the stock part, which is a well thought trap for any kind of dirt and moisture.

I babysat mine since I bought it 2001 (she was 4 YO) and kept the chassis clean and waxoyled regularly, and still all the effort went wasted.

Bah.
