A few small plastic replacement parts.
This one around the handbrake. Again, doing everything to combat the winter temperatures.

I was getting ready to install the hood & light trim and noticed this...

14053

14054


The hood hooks were broken and needed repair
14055


So a little more plastic welding (of sorts)...
14056

14057

14058

14059


And they're all re-strengthened and straightened out

Next it was time for the new fender rails
14064


Which needed to be threaded for installation
14065

14066

14067


So they can be screwed where they join the front nudge bar (brush guard)
14068

14069


And also 2 bolts under the floor

In the meantime it was time for a good "new start of life" detailing.
And who better to undertake this task and bond with his machine than the man that will be driving it on a daily basis and who will be EXTREMELY careful (right Dave!?) and who will never forget the time, energy, money & dedication that went into this project, no doubt shittn himself incase he rubs of a wall.
