You do know youre going to have to buy the house next door just to expand your property. Thats got to be a pain to get in and out of the garage without fretting about the paint! Bet the family likes the room!! Very nice job. Enjoy...

Thanks guys. I found a local group to do the paint. My paint guy took it on as a project since he hadn't done a LR. I don't think he would do another one. Overall it really came out nice and probably 1/3 the $ of ECR. I did a bunch of the work. I did spend a bit more than I wanted but the seats and the auto are great.

Awesome! Near perfect in my book, minus the 3.9. Any plans for an engine transplant/upgrade?

And those Texas plates are probably my favorite...simple yet bold. I might give up my collegiate Idaho plates for those when I move.

Thanks Sam.
It needs a bit more umph for sure. The original motors got just under 80k on it so its hard to rationalize a swap at this point. Its still real strong and my budget on this truck is the only thing blown. Maybe in another 50k miles.
I had some brackets fabbed up last week so the back seat will go in soon. Im putting in the puma 60/40 so we will see how good a fit it makes.
That should wrap up the big stuff. I still need to rebuild the original winch.

Wow, low miles. Don't blame you for keeping the engine. Love those leather Puma seats, I'm assuming matching leather in the rear as well? Post up a pic when you get those in please!

Some questions Reese as I'm about to get into the interior on my 90...

How do you like the Dynaliner? I was thinking of going with the McMaster stuff...
How did you make the center console fit with the additional height of the Dynaliner/Dynamat?
Did you put another mat/carpet over the Dynaliner?

Thanks!

I put down a layer of Dynaliner and then Dynamat. I dont think the Dynaliner alone does the job, espcially on cutting down on the heat. In Texas, that was a major goal of adding the liner. I dont know anything about McMaster.

I pulled the old carpet and had a local shop surge the edges on some new bulk carpet I cut to fit using the old carpet as a guide. I added typical car carpet pad to the floor mats as I dont like putting Dyna stuff on the floors (you cant see the rust issues starting when you cover them up).

The centre console was not a problem as long as you leave a gap in the Dynamat where the console rests on the seat box.

Good luck.

Great, thanks for the info! I hear that the layering method works the best as you did. Im doing the Exmoor matting up front with Dynamat underneath, then I may go with your method and materials in the cargo area.
