Not sure where to post this? mods please move if not correct.

OK, I stole the idea from a Wrangler forum :oops: :D

Me? I wired in an additional dome lamp over the back door, like night and day :lol:

Im finishing my door cards and cleaning my dash... should have an almost complete interior later today
(apart from the rear side and tailgate panels)

Problem is with the trailer in the garage the door doesn't open enough to drill a larger hole for the leccy window leads to go through.
So now have to push the car out of the garage just to drill the hole.... always hassles haha

Health sucks right now, but I recently did manage to get the cheap chinese rubbish fuel pump off and a facet fuel pump on (even though Andyrew was a total dude and sent me a mechanical one, that's going to be the backup pump now).

I didn't teflon the fittings and it leaked, so I pulled it. Facet's instructions say teflon's not needed, and many people find it's fine (like Twiss) but google tells me just as many people have leaks as find it's fine. I had Niagra falls, only with Petrol, so pulled it. One of the jubilee clips wouldn't come off, and I cut my finger and thumb pretty much to the bone trying to get it to come off. After a bit of first aid, I took angry grinder to it and it came off super easy. Should have done that right from the start, but... brain fog and lemons.

Anyhow, teflon tape and 10 minutes with a screwdriver later and the SJ is purring like a kitten again. Happy days.

I want to get some lighting in mine at some point. I only noticed the other day that mine has lights above the seatbelt mounts in the B pillar - don't work, but they probably just need bulbs. I would also like a roof liner...

I spent most of yesterday trying to pop a dent out the wing, and also making more jobs by finding more rust!

Those headlamps are super snazzy, are they street legal in UK?

Not entirely sure... depends how friendly your MOT tester is.
The beam pattern is flat across and doesn't have the raise to one side

Strangely they are E-marked though
