    Did a bit more Saturday and today, Saturday I removed the old oil cooler pipes I had connected to the engine, replaced the Def 200tdi thermostate housing I've had for a while for a Disco 200tdi one, I also removed the 300tdi radiator to make way for a 200tdi radiator as when I fitted the fan belt I was struggling to get a few months ago now I realised I couldn't fit the bottom hose as the belt was smack in the middle of the bottom hose neck, the new 200tdi radiator arrived today which I have fitted and re-routed the bottom hose to fit the new 200tdi one then I fitted the rear mud flaps I ordered as well, can't fit the front ones till the front wings are fitted, will post pic's later :)

    Fitted some of the fuel lines in today just need a couple of tank to lift pump pipes for fittings to fit a supply pipe and a return pipe, I also started to fit the front shocks fitted one then found out the N/S/F spring plate was the wrong one for the car looks like an S1 front spring plate ( to close to swivel housing flange ) didn't even notice it when I fitted the springs so I need to get one of them now :(

    Well after realising that the Mazda RX8 seats won't do and looking at other seats we stumbled across a Defender seat referbish kit on ebay and as i still had the original seats out of the 90 i used to have we decided to buy a kit to try and the outcome was great so have ordered another kit for the other seat and i have also found a matching cubby box as well so have ordered that as well, pic's later
