More due diligence on the tdi swap. Got a very nice surprise last night around midnight when the head was turned over to reveal this shiny pup. Shiny cross hatchings in cylinders was a nice find too.

Mocking up the extended fuel tank... Approx 50+ gallons.. Half diesel, other half water..split vertically down the middle and baffled to stop sloshing..both will only be filled when extreme camping or remote locations.. Built correct size so it doubles as a seat and step to get up into the roof top tent..

Took possession of my new-to-me 110 yesterday. Added UV dye to oil, power steering fluid, and coolant to figure out where the major leaks are coming from.

- Woke up to find the water pump leaking (when cold). Cracked the radiator cap and the leak stopped?
- Added rubber hood latches to keep the fiberglass hood from popping out
- Added cupholder tray

FWIW, had to stuff piece of foam between the tray and gearshift gaiter. Its pretty useful!

BTW, Put key in truck and it started without any problems. So much for fault finding.

Rebuilt my front passenger window tracks on the 130...ranks up there with the least favorite job I've done in awhile!

Organized all my parts. Consolidated parts in my office, basement, and mud room into the storage room. Wife is much happier.

Cleaned 20 years of oil and grease off the tdi today. The whole family needs new tooth brushes now. It feels good to see metal. These engines must have been beautiful brand new. Those gold blocks must've looked just bad ass.

Never refuse a toothbrush from the dentist...he doesn't need to know you have an electric one at home, and using the freebie for cleaning car parts...

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?
