It's a surprise that they don't supply the double sided sticky to seal the window back to the body. They make a point of providing everything else.

I replaced the felt in mine for about $5 for both sides ... I guess il have to do it in another 15 years ...

Got this from Lucky8, need to pick up new hardware tomorrow. My old bolts looked so crappy I couldn't bear to put it together with them.

Iit was only a mess because my old felts were decomposing and created a soupy dirty mess. Overall, a great upgrade. The garrison kit is excellent. Happy I completed it.

I've just learned that my gearbox leaked out all the oil but it's fine. We're currently sorting that issue. Also, I just brought a kayak carrier to transport my kayak. I'm going to try to figure how to install it as soon as it arrives.

Changed the Injection pump head o-ring using the dieselgeeks kit.

Cleaned the air filter.

Fixed the cover on the center console (again)

Cleaned out all the crap from inside.

Add a longer wire for my glowplugs so that it isn't stretched out like it was.

Confirmed glowplugs 1 and 3 DOA

Adjusted boost aneroid fueling pin back to 12 degrees in the hopes of improving economy and thinning the black cloud.

Added nuts to all 3 studs holding the IP to the timing case. Since there were none back in 2008 when I acquired the engine. Apparently.

Replaced the radio antenna.

Started daily driving it!

Timing checked and replaced 1 O2...getting ready to order a new y pipe..
Floods on the way as well, crossing fingers with them we will see if they are crap or not, or if I'll replace them with ARB. Plan is to move the light cannons to the roof.

Removed the E load rated rough as a cobb Michelin LTX AT2s and replaced them with C load rated Wrangler Duratracs.

A few weeks ago spent 300 miles driving dirt roads in Big Bend area and even at twenty pounds of pressure the E load rated tires beat the crap out of me.

Still washing out the East Texas mud from SCARR now my yard is red, fixed my no start issue also, bad relay so if you saw her In doors push starting old red all fixed now. It seems that the best saying from that weekend about old red was nice tractor As we just chugged up hills in 2L feathering the skinny pedal.

Wait these are supposed to run and drive?


Put my boosts on it. They will get redone when I spray the truck along with my horrible looking lugnuts. Thanks again Carmen for dragging them to SCARR.

Need to take apart the rear door so I can get the center piece off so I can mount the spare boost.

Installed some Exmoor trakkers front seats in my EX MOD. They are pretty good. Got em on clearance at Roversnorth. Pretty solid. Very comfortable. Seems made of decent material. More comfortable than a rover deserves.
Like most things Land Rover US these days, the value isn't there, but good relatively speaking. Still cant figure out how a utillity brand with no.. well no redeeming qualities other than being one of 2 "jeeps" available gets priced into upmarket levels... but w/e.. it keeps me busy on weekends.
