    Finished off today, altered the lights as they were a bit close to the grill

    I like the staggered look, see how they hold up

    Also swapped them around as I had floods in the middle and they were not labelled.

    Tidied the wiring and fitted the new fuse box, it’s all getting swapped at some point but it’s all safe and done right, I just want to do it different like having the floods and spots on seperate switches

    Has a built in negative bus bar, saves having earths everywhere

    Also fitted some Custom Covers seat covers
    Well made and as the name suggests a custom fit, I’ve had a rear boot liner as long as I’ve had the Disco, it needs replacing now but it was worth the money and I will happily buy another

    I fitted cruise control along with a steering wheel I retrimmed with a kit from eBay

    It’s not that hard to work on, it earns my living so I have to keep it going, or swap it for a modern, dull, dreary van

    Bit of a pain this weekend, I had planned to do the turbo and exhaust but the belt tensioner letting go on the M62 caused me to have a change of plans

    It also took the alternator bracket with it

    With some help from my local 4x4 group a new bracket was collected on Saturday

    That side of the engine rebuilt I started on the turbo, and finally removed the blue silicone boost hoses, they are my pet hate

    Had an issue with the exhaust so will come back to that later but I’m all up and running again
    I also fitted a catch can but it needs tidying up

    I think the tensioner seized and it all just went wrong. The bracket seems tiny to me if I’m honest, it’s a chunky alternator and vacuum pump

    Did I read in here about the exam question? John earns £2000 a month and spends £700 on car repairs. At the end of the month what does John have? John has a Land Rover.

    To be fair
    Bracket, tensioner and belt £90
    Turbo, exhaust, service kit, boost solenoid and pipes £350

    And it’s been an expensive month

    Fitted a "kitty friendly" exhaust today

    Blew a bit of smoke and soot on first start but sounds nice on boost

    Had to argue with the cross member 3 bolts on one side were a pain
