Hey is that a Gransfors Bruks Axe? They are awesome! I have two.

Nope. Just an old Austrian axe I picked up on eBay.

Trying to put the interior back together. Have to plug the seat box up and finally got the rear seat frames in.

I never liked the white grill and surrounds, but with a giant inter-cooler the grill never fit right so I added the A/C surround panel and gave a light coat of flat black to the aluminum inter-cooler...when the truck gets painted I will paint the surround and headlight surrounds gloss black....I think it updates the front of the truck...

Painted the rear cross-member, rear step, and hitch gloss black...I want to add front mud flaps and replace the rear ones with the Land Rover embossed logo...but to get by I sprayed them too as they looked like crap before...

Painted the Wheels gloss black too...they came out pretty good...may need another coat...

Also installed a new VDO temp sending unit, truck sat consistently at 185F

Also added a Turbo Boost valve when i plumbed in the Boost Gauge...under load it now holds a little over 9psi...10psi is the target....

and had the car washed for the first time...the guy at the car was kept on getting into the left hand side and moving my crap off the seat...until he finally got in and looked stunned when the wheel was not in front of him....needless to say they asked me to drive it...lol...Power wash and hand wash for $9...SOLD!

Installed a Masai ladder that I bought from Urban Land Cruisers & Rovers. This is the new design, and has 4 attachment points;



Sadly it wouldn't fit with the NAS rear bumper, so I had to cut the bottom step off.

Provides a handy grab handle for climbing into the back.

Replaced the dash crash pad on the 130 with a nice fresh one. Unfortunately I'm still dealing with the smaller 10.5" defrost vents - I didn't realize I'd actually need to trim the lip for the bulkhead tabs/mounts for the actual defrost plenum in order to fit the newer/larger ones in.

I still need to slap on the defrost vent trim pieces (those will fit without modification even over the older defrost plenum), now if only some jerk making nice upgraded aluminum versions of these had them done ...

Started breaking down the 90 for a refresh over the past 2 days.

1st Suspension: Removed the tired OME lift, scorpion links, safarigard 3 link and installed rovertym 3 inch lift, newly powder coated rovertym arms, all new factory bushings, adjustable panhard, rockware high clearance drag link, re-installed fox resi shocks.

2nd Exhaust: Removed the borla exhaust to refinish and replace the muffler component, y pipe removed and cats cut out for recycling, removed stock manifolds to have sent out for ceramic coating.

Removing the 3 link is a terrible job and i have done some terrible jobs including removing and replacing a heater core on a RRC.

Next step is to button up suspension etc and dropping in a Turner 4.6 top hat motor sometime this summer. Tired.

Lost the fan belt and some prestone the other day. Engine water temp went through the roof. Picked up fan belt but it's too short. Ex MOD Tithonus 2.5na has belt that is 3 in longer. Unscrew the rad fill plug and realize threads are stripped ( over tightened when in service ? ) and see MOD uses some kind of blue coolant fluid. Nut to loosen alternator is rounded and won't cooperate. Cleaned the windows, that all went fine. Lol. It's a sunny day at last and beer tonight will be delicious.


Peace to you all

This should be titled "what I tried to do to my land rover today"
