History
Have updated a few exterior cosmetic items to give the truck a fresher more up to date look.
The grille has been taken off as it was a very faded grey and after cleaning and sanding got 4 coats of a gloss black paint.
The plastic trim underneath both headlights got the same treatment.
The bumpers and rest of the exterior got 10-12 coats of armor oil.First few coats will soak instantly especially in Florida heat.
The old tired decals were taken off and i replaced them with L322 badges.This was a risk as i wasn't sure if they'd be too over the top or not but i like the end result.I also replaced the LR badges with the black and silver type (cost $6 for 2 of them,shipped from china) but have not a pic up of these yet.Wipers replaced with Bosch set.
Replaced the AC Drier and also the expansion valve.
Engine is currently out of the vehicle as I had a blown head gasket and is currently being rebuilt from the ground up (with the exception of replacing the pistons & liners which are in near perfect condition).
Installing a Crowler Camshaft and ARP studs instead of stretch bolts on rebuild.
