    Discovery 3 on coils help needed

    Early on in my coil conversion my height sensors were still plugged in and I put rods on just to mitigate them having warnings come on from time to time. That’s a cheaper route than IID-though the IID tool has a lot of other uses. The electronics are a reality in these trucks, you will find...

    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    Sitting in WV on a bit of a break after a year and a half sprint in Japan, during COVID… Figured it would be fun to check in and say: My brake lines corroded. Great. Dealership wants $4-7k (can’t say for sure till they start). So that’s going to wait, and probably go to my Indy vice the dealer...

    1994 Suzuki Jimny light build

    Piecing together the front end. Low Range Winch base, Cecco Racing brush guard, Warn Axon 55 for a baby winch, and bumperettes from the stock bumper. Mocked up, will take it all off to paint soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I have to say for a local runabout it’s fantastic. The cargo area, with the seat removed, would be good for the pups and the overall size of the truck is great for getting around tight streets and such.

    We added a panel to the back door. I’d thought first about doing a hard MOLLE panel but with the way the door angles when open it just didn’t look right in mockup. So we went with a soft panel, used rivnuts, and now have some utility pouches on the back. Retention holds straps (mostly roller...

    A few minor updates, but first a pic of her out doing her thing. In this case, beach day.

    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    So.... -used the mount kit to mount the bars, no issues with clearance. I don't open Land Rover sunroofs so that was never an issue for me. -I left the flooring, just cut around it...and continue to add to it and modify it as this pic shows (the mounts for the bars, which are going direct onto...

    I owe an update. Work has been work, and quite frankly once we set the truck up we've just been using it so the mods kinda came to a halt. That said there is some stuff to highlight on the interior and such. More to follow. r- Ray

    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    Lemme see if I can remember given that I haven't laid hands on her for 8 months. -Def prefer the chicken coop in my book. I'd heard about the PS flooring-which looks good, but doesn't last. -I used large flat washers to ensure purchase and took my time measuring/drilling holes in the chicken...

    Use the ARB strap kit (https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjdqZvz6NjtAhXuHzQIHQpjBc4QFjAAegQIAxAC&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FARB-10900010-Fridge-Freezer-System%2Fdp%2FB003CEVFV4&usg=AOvVaw17HqEIKh5hqDU2zGQPqQ5V) Connect to the floor by using the...

    Took some time over the weekend to play with onboard tool kit options. When we moved to Oki I basically threw a bunch of my excess tools (I am a Rover owner after all) in a peli and figured need would dictate. With the other vehicle being a Toyota Prado that is a grocery getter/DD it doesn’t...

    Gotta love mail arriving. Some Low Range Off-road stuff showed up; not cheap to get the OE floor rubber floor mats but they work far better than the carpet mats. The replacement sun visors were also a small, inexpensive and welcome upgrade. Right is new (black) vs the old (tan...ish) To...

    1994 Suzuki Jimny light build

    2" spacer got the spare back on the back door. Truck serving duty as the beach runabout (gotta love Nov in Okinawa), ate up the chairs, cooler, inflatable SUP and the floatie. Overall the stance looks better with the tire on, and the suspension feels better with the weight back there...

    So you can find them on ebay but they aren't cheap. I used Amazon Japan and got it for $150 less when you take into account the shipping from the ebay link. Was it worth it? I don't know...I figure its a slow rolling resto of sorts, it makes it unique if nothing else. Especially given the...
