Santa came a little early this year. Installed Kc led headlights. Very bright, my bumper lights are pretty much unnecessary now.

Is the top half and bottom half lit when it's on low-beam?

The top half is on for low beam and both top and bottom for high.

replaced a-frame ball joint and bushings ... can't believe how straightforward this is process is with the correct tools ... tragically I didn't have a big enough press so bushing and seized bolts removed by hand!

Don't try this at home kids ...

I you've ever looked at a Td5 dash, you'll know why this is such a big deal. It's what I have done to my Defender today.... adding a tach, and the proper Td5 tach has been on my mind since I got the truck.

Mounted my hi lift jack lower on the front bumper. It was on the top of the brush bar always in the way when i needed to get to the engine. Now its more out of the way but still along for the ride.

Smart. I saw a guy who had his mounted on top catch a tree limb once. Tweaked his ARB and bent the fastener.

It was time for a new windscreen. My motto is if you are going to replace something UPGRADE!

I had Rovalution install a military heated windscreen & replaced rear fog light, hazard & rear defrost switches with Carling switches.

The windscreen is amazing, after only a couple minutes it is registering 89 degrees! There was frost on the window this morning and it was about 45 seconds to get up to temperature and then then rather than just melting, the frost evaporated.

Why did I wait this long????

Thanks Don!

Got the fan cowl fitted and rewired a few engine sensors. Inspected the turbo and noticed the shaft has a fair amount of play (up/down & in/out). Also a light coating of oil in the IC pipes... joy

Tdi instruments are glimming green but almost dark during the night too!

Great job!

Turbo - apparently it all tightens up with oil pressure when its running, and some oil in the intercooler plumbing is normal. Does the engine use much oil between oil changes that can't be attributed to external leaks?

Worry about the turbo when it starts making nasty noises.

That is a fine looking fan shroud. I'm glad it made it safely.

Truck lites

Installed Truck Lites and just tested them out at halftime. Amazing difference. The triangles/shadows they project are a little odd, but I can get used to it.

Tied my bootlace to the throttle so i could get the 30 miles home. Hand throttle out the window in 40 degree drizzle. Hurt at first, then It stopped hurting... But it worked like a charm. Better than my first work around... Turning up the idle. Thought it accelerated slow before...
Shopped cables... In the USA, $137- ordered from uk... $44 for 2 delivered. Difference of about a week of wait. Reasonable?

Installed new LED KC headlights. Brilliant kit. Need to adjust but love the output. Yanked the hodge podge jimmy of an exhaust and had installed 3" straight exhaust. Nice sound now and being new to tdi' love the turbo whine. Click image for larger version

Anyone have any suggestions or tricks for getting the seat back cover to go on easier? It seems like it's about 2 inches too short for the plastic rail at the back to snap together. I'm thinking I just need to eat more wheaties.
