Nice riser-- if the plugs are up facing, consider a cover if you haven't already. I've had a dime short out a cigarette light that was up facing and debris piles/packs into USB plugs over time

All the electrical is Bluesea brand and yes, they come with covers. Thanks for the heads up, I could see a dime or a round of ammo falling in and shorting things out.

New stereo. Awesome unit.
Fuel filter.
Manifold gasket so less heat on the feet

Used the winch to straighten an E30 frame (again). Sure beats paying the big bucks frame straighteners want.

Nope. Shifter is very sturdy-American hot rod item made by Lokar in Tenn. Shifter only moves straight back and has a detent button in the middle of the knob that most be pushed in order to move selector. Very nice bit of kit and makes the auto conversion functional without bastardizing the interior. Shifter has an interlock so engine will only start in park or neutral.

It was filthy and had been in a box up in the warehouse. I cleaned/conditioned it with a Zymol product called Vinyl that is meant for interior bits. It dulls down quickly.

Great stuff but like all Zymol products, not cheap.

Had a big day today: saw the sunrise from the eastern-most point of the US, rolled over 100k miles, and made a new friend with an awesome Series IIA (and some old sea dog stories!). Great day with our Defender... she's taking our first road trip well!

Awesome shots! What a great day! That would be the most eastern part of the continent U.S. Ironically, the most eastern, western, and northern part of the U.S. are all found in the same state, Alaska. The most southern is in Hawaii. Just a crazy factoid that might stump a friend.

Yes, continental US of course. Had to write and re write and re upload the pics so many times because there's only little blips of service up here, so i gave up! Hahaha We want to do the drive up to Alaska if it's possible. ... anyone on here done it before?

Installed a new reverse switch for the lt77. Genuine Lucas switch snapped at the terminal. It was held onto the switch with glue! Soldered to fix and now works fine. Prince of darkness....

Talking

replaced upper radiator hose yesterday; it had started to develop a blister, took a pic of the inside of the bad hose. Did the repair in my apartment parking garage and had to improvise a little when it came to topping off the radiator; I used a teapot... not sure it gets more British than that, unless I were to top it off with Earl Grey.

Disassembled a steering box - result - it's toast.
Bottom seal had failed, all the oil ran out, resulting in wear on the bottom of the shaft and all the needles in the bottom bearing falling out. Good one ebay, happily a replacement is on its way without any quibbling - he'll get top feedback providing the replacement is up to scratch.

Cleaned the stepper and then made the death wobble worse driving on the beltway in MD.

Got a few things done on the defender last evening. Changed out the seized winch hook, fixed the 12V power plug(somehow wired backwards). Mounted the wolf rims and 255 85 16 KM2 tires from my 109 and mounted the shovel with some quick fists.
