Great job. I need to do this as well. And run separate wiring for my heated windscreen, A/C and other goodies.

Not for the Defender but refinishing new (old) wheels for the Series.

First coat of Rustoleum Almond Appliance Epoxy.

Jason,

This is considered an 8" extension (total length is about 12"). I picked it up for about $50 at on of the many local "Truck and Hitch" places in town. I live in Texas, and those truck accessory stores are everywhere and stay pretty busy with the locals.

very nice job. How much prep did you throw into it? I'm gonna need to do my Wolfs eventually.

First sprayed with Krud Kutter and power washed. Then dried and wire wheeled the rough spots (not too many) with cordless drill. Then a little sandpaper in spots where it needed it (few places where previous paint came off). Then green Scotch pad. Lightly power washed again. Sprayed wheels completely with Must For Rust. Waited. Rinsed. Then a wipe down with Prep-All and then paint.

Sounds like a long time but not - 3 hours. Have lot of sun today to help the drying and a teenager for the grunt work.

They don't need to be perfect as they are going on a truck that is also not perfect. Just needed to upgrade to 16" wheels and these were cheap and in pretty good shape.

This was the spare - so it was in great shape - that's about three coats - I may put a coat of clear on tomorrow.

Roll Cage Pads

Installed a set of Exmoor roll bar pads. I'm quite pleased with the quality and fit.

Looks good! I'm excited to put mine on as well! Do you have a full soft top to put over it, or would you just remove these prior? I'm just curious to see what the fitment of these will be like under the top. Nice truck!

I do have a full soft top and was wondering the same thing. It looks like I would have to remove the top cross bar pads just to access the snaps. I think the pads on the vertical bars and cantrails can stay on and not affect the soft top.

I'm having problems with this gearbox. This is the second gearbox in less than 3 months.

Replaced door panels yesterday and today. It was a little bit more difficult than I expected but I am very pleased with the results. I got my new panels from RN and was able to save/reuse the original door pockets with the LR logo embossed in place of the Roversnorth ones with the badge.

I want these. Do they also have them for the back doors on a 110?

It wasn't today, but technically yesterday. But...trail swapped a broken transfer case at The Cove. And also realized this winter has left me fat & pasty white.

Big thanks to Galpin for his never ending tenacity for the "trail fix threshold". Couldn't have done it without him!

Did you replace the rubber hose between the door and body (the one the wires go through)?

I am missing one and trying to find a replacement.

Finally getting back to working on my truck after just driving it for a while. I needed some time off after 8 months of nightly work. Started to swap my front shocks, going in knowing this "quick job" probably wouldn't be. Bingo, 1 of the tower bolts in the back is seized solid and impossible to remove despite the usual tricks. I also cut the top nut off the shock as it was spinning and there was no way to grab the piston with the tower in place, so now no truck until parts get here. Afraid I'm going to have to pull the wing to get at that damn nut, my grinder won't fit, maybe a flex shaft... at least I know those bolts aren't seized.
