Blanked the EGR.

Yup, there is a difference. Engine seems to run smoother on the highway, smoother acceleration. Well worth doing.

Door switches - front doors and rear door only. Have not done the middle doors yet.

You can the switches I used from DNW

Interior LED's

http://www.vleds.com/bulb-type/festo...211-2-578.html

These bulbs are amazingly bright. The 110 is huge inside, stock bulbs just weren't doing it. These make it look like daytime inside.

A bit cold this morning, but finally got the new 70A Alternator installed with its new pulley (bugger was expensive!). New signal wire and charge wire (6ga) all installed as well. So far so good on a functioning charging system.

Busy day. Oil change on the 110 switching to synthetic for the winter. Got hold of some nice heavy rubber matting and cut out some nice floor mats for the 110 and the Series 3. Installed new door seals. I know Britpart gets a bad rap, but their door seals are decent and fit the front and rear doors of the 110 perfectly. And then the important job. Removed the accelerator cable and lubed it up. Friggin thing stuck on full throttle on me Friday when I mashed the the go peddle down. That was an interesting few seconds while I figured out what to do. Stomped the peddle a couple times. Nothing. Hooked my toe under the peddle. Nothing. Finally it was key off and coast to the side of the road. Got the cable moving again and it was a careful drive home from there. Cleaned up and working fine again now but will order a replacement.

I don't know how often the average guy changes his fuel filter but I am embarrassed to say I can't remember when I changed mine last. I know I have but it has been years. There's little excuse for it and my laziness probably caused my fuel pump to fail three or four years ago which is also pretty embarrassing.

For the past year I've had some sporadic idle issues. Never consistent and not entirely as other have described before replacing their stepper motors. Well finally I decided to start with the cheapest parts first. I ordered a fuel filter and a stepper motor. Replaced the fuel filter and immediately noticed a slightly stronger start and idle. Hopefully I don't jinx myself but for the last couple days so far so good. Hopefully this post trigger you to think twice about the fuel filter and saves some downtime.

Haven't seen my defender in over a month. RRC has been getting abused, time to swap out for the 90.

Gotta love fixing previous owners "fixes". Just think of them as bonus "features"

Suspension upgrade... OME springs, shocks and steering stabilizer.

No comparison to the stock, it feels like a truck now. Front end came up 2.25" which it really needed.

Fender opening hight:

before:
33.5" front
36.25 rear

after:
35.75"
37"

went with 2751 front 2755 rear

Got glass added to my hard top. Makes a world of difference.

I know, the top of the glass doesn't line up with the top of the door glass. I like it though. Adds to the character.

Step 1 of some "performance mods"

Fitted new Allisport Intercooler and silicone hoses

Step 2 is gonna be the new fuel pin

Step 3 is gonna be a refurb Garrett T25 turbo

Somewhere in btw I may "tune" it a little with some help from "da boyz"

I went to a glass shop and they used safety glass. I roughed out what I wanted with a carpenters square and pencil and they did the rest. Cost me $500 to have it done.
