Installed the Exmoor rubber matting yesterday (still have to do the seat box) but amazed at the sound difference...will need to put some sound proofing from the upper toe box to under the IP and a piece behind the fuse box, but still such an improvement!...I just wish it fit just a bit better around the shifter gaiter...not a tight fit with some gapping...

Wrestled with installing non-genuine (Britpart) door seals today...the cost was literally 1/4 of the genuine price ($94 total for all 4-corners), but I'm not sure I'd go OEM again on these since the fit is far from "perfect".

Installed a new 3mm cork gasket between the oil pan and block on the Tdi - no more oil leak (from the pan at least). There's a guy in England who is die cutting real gaskets for the Tdi motor. It works much, much better than the glue the oil pan to the block method.

Which cup holder tray is that? I've got one from MUD UK but it doesn't have the recessed areas to secure it using the screws from the tunnel
cover. I'd be afraid to sit a drink in the one I have. Would love to know where you got yours.

Was a MUD UK one for the LT77 trans. Got it from Urban in Atlanta as a walk-in customer.

Are you saying that a cork gasket works better than Right Stuff?

Lots of cleanup

Not just today but over the past three months I've been cleaning up a frankenstein installation of a 2.8 TGV that I bought. Almost all new and proper coolant and intercooler hoses and pipes, correct intercooler and radiator, correct air filter assy, correct air intake hoses and associated parts, correct fuel filter assembly, correct coolant reservoir, removed a dead Ramsey winch and painted the original bumper, painted the bush bar, added a set of carling switches and a mini mud pod to clean up the bastardized installation of the ARB compressor, lockers, electric fan which was never hooked up, and the driving lights.

Oh, also added some backing strength to the soft top by the doors to stop the draft from coming in. Used a piece of angle iron bolted to the side panel above the door latch and some 3/4 round steel mashed flat at both ends bolted to the angle iron and the soft top brace. Works like a charm and cheap. Just need to paint it.

Grill and light surrounds painted and new turn signals in the bumper.

So much of this installation was utilizing the original V8 parts and a cracked oversized intercooler.

Absolutely - and you don't have excess sealer squeeze out collecting on the oil pump pickup screen. I tried the hylomar method and it leaked worse than before I took the pan off the first time. When I pulled the pan to install the gasket the excess hylomar was clogging almost half the pickup screen.I got a real gasket here:

Brought this home in the 110. 200Tdi complete with everything to drop into a Defender. Almost a shame to be putting it into my Series 3.

re-vitalized the trailer hitch

It was the first of many projects on the recently acquired old girl. Went at it with a drill mounter wire disc, and a wire brush. Sanded, wiped with thinner then painted it.

So much more to do...but as the old saying goes the longest journey...

The photo is of the newly painted trailer hitch in the vines. Preparing a burn pile from the pruned vines and yard cleanup.

Finally got around to removing the old MOD battery box and rifle mounts. Surprised at how heavy that box was. The pup likes his new view.

This week I am installing a new clutch slate to my truck. I'm also looking into changing my electric fans.

Sorry, but the right stuff is par superior to the gasket, especially the cork one.... And I have used the right stuff on HUNDREDS of builds and never seen it release to the pickup...that stuff sticks like nothing I've ever seen...really is great..
