need to fill in a little gap that is causing some light spill over but otherwise I'm happy.

The bleed over to the brake path is curious but at this point I don't care. Its freaking cold outside.

Got the disco seats fitted today. Have to get the new tub floor cut and fill in the wheel wells. I couldn't believe it when the 110 seat belts clicked into the receivers on the disco seats. Going to the sheet metal shop Tuesday to have the tub floor and kick plate bent from one piece of aluminum

Yep - looking good - only comment...are they back a little too far for the seatbelt to function properly? It looks like their is a gap btw the belts and the seat backs?

But, it looks great - I would not have thought this would work with the tub of the 110. Did you do major mods to get them in?

All I had to do is cut the wheel wells 6" back and 4" in. I agree about the belts, what I may do is scoot it forward a few inches when I make the new tub floor but then there won't be a solid mount point without a bunch of heavy steel fab work. This is basically just a fitting so we will see how it pans out. It seems like everyone else that has done this mod did it the same way as far as seat placement in relation to the belt. The thing to do would be to mount the belt to an interior cage( there is my excuse to fab one up ��). Open to suggestions. (edit). I took a look at Tyler Werkens build and he did push them forward a few inches with a pretty simple mount design. More to come

Installed LED running lights and turn signals, to go along with my Trucklite LED headlights and LED spots.



I also installed LED brake lights, but can't do the rear turn signals because I can't find my relay. It's not behind the fuse box, apparently!

Replaced my 200tdi's dip stick tube with a replacement from Craddocks.

The original part used a 20mm wrench to remove. It looks like somewhere earlier in its life, it was wrapped with teflon tape near the olive to prevent oil leaks. This started to fail and resulted in an oil leak on the left side of the engine.

The replacement part was ERC8980. The replacement part uses a 22m wrench to install. The part looks similar but not identical. The part has a very bright nickel finish and has a different bend than the original.

Nice, that gives it a much more modern look. I bet they are much cleaner and brighter light too!

Put in a new Kenwood BT-958HD receiver, finally wiring my subwoofer correctly, and just general cleaning up. It sounds great, I don't know why I didn't do this years ago!

Finally got the steering skid on after tripping over it for the last year and a half. Also got new u joints on the rear shaft. It's been a rover weekend.

Took the front seats out, stripped and painted the frames, redid the foam and the cloth with an Exmoor kit and sanded and prepped the interior for paint.

I did the same, too many areas that could leak!

Jayz, what wheels and tires do you have? I like how they look, thanks!
