Removed the terrible Shelby-esque stripes off the roof. Sure it's a fuel injected V8, but it's not winning any stop light drags.

Attached my front door checks to the new bulkhead. Ran a new wire for the oil pressure gauge. Rewired most of the back end, maybe even connecting the right wires together if I'm lucky. Sorted out how I'm going to wire in my self-resetting circuit breaker, 7-pin trailer hitch live 12v lead, Painless rear fuse box, and compressor. Met another guy nearby with a 200tdi Discovery. Looked at his truck to see if I could use it to solve my wiring questions. Started adding in the rear mounts for my roll cage.

Consider paint the roof white. It will avoid any color matching issues, and will halp a little with summer heat.

I pulled the old headliner, put sound deadner in the roof ran speaker wire and ran wiring for some additional dome lights in the rear.

Tomorrow hopefully will see new seats getting mocked up and the original seats pulled to be sold off.

I was thinking about a really dark grey to give a unique two tone look. Told wife I'd do wheels to match roof. She looked at me like I was a complete idiot, and I figured it must not be a good idea!

Checked for damage after yesterdays testing out of the new rock sliders I built earlier this month and the lift kit I installed Thursday and Friday.

Resealed and painted the door tops. Now they match the rest of the truck and no more nasty window rattles.
