after 10 years, finally got to work

took off brush bar and lights for a cleaner look, replaced all lights with LED, put on a work light (baja designs run of a carling), put on chequer plate wing protectors, put on trailhead oil cooler lines, and ditched the stock running boards for some of madcowdungbeetle's sliders (to be installed as soon as they arrive).

Bout time.

Your getting his XD sliders as well? I wonder if we could save a bit on shipping and have them sent together. Heck, we could wrench party the install! Two beluga ST's getting overbuilds. That would be cool. All that work looks great by the way!

Clear LEDs

For anyone interested, Masai 4x4 carries the clear LEDs.

Masai | Land Rover Defender 90 110 windows and other accessories

They are not "plug-and-play", and only come with the bare wires, so you'll need the following from Rovers North.

Four male harnesses for the front lights
CONNECTOR FOR LED LAMP - 2 PIN, LEDH02 - Rovers North - Classic Land Rover Parts

One set of harnesses for the rear
LED CONNECTOR KIT-NAS REAR LED LIGHTS , PLK289CK - Rovers North - Classic Land Rover Parts

I was worried they would look too "rice racery", but at night, it looks fantastic as the white of the side lights match the LED headlights.

Added a drop down tray

I decided to use some left over aluminum scraps and a piece of diamond tread and make a drop down tray table. I used to large magnets and a draw hasp to secure. Added a couple of quickfists for my base camp axe.

No idea Adam, but let me know if you find some. Would love my side indicators to match the rest of the lights.
