    will obviously be doing the rest as was done on my 110. Already spoken to Uncle Peter. Just need to sort out a turbo seal which I can hear blowing slightly, one door is not locking with the central locking and passenger front window is not opening and closing smoothly. Dealership is going to sort all this out as well as fit tyres for me.
    Hi Bruce, I have an EGR blanking plate for you to blank off at the exhaust manifold side of the EGR cooler. Put one on my 2.4TDCI as well. No engine light problems....can't use them on the 2.2's though....they have a different design.

    Thank you. Was just going to do it with software, but will look at this. How much would you like for it?

    I have completely removed the EGR actuator and cooler. Silver soldered a cap (SS welsh plug) onto the old EGR inlet pipe and fitted a blanking plate (Laser cut) on the exhaust manifold side.

    Thank you Jay B. I had it cut by sondor a few years ago for my 110. Basically just took them a pattern I had made out of wood and they cut it for me. It needed some adjusting and cutting to fit into this box so I used a hacksaw

    Did a bit more work today.

    - Fitted the FR roof rack water tank and tap
    - fitted spade brackets and spade
    - fitted branch deflectors
    - did some more work on the kitchen. Taking it slow as Iím undecided about the final setup
    - had new tyres fitted to the front
    - replaced the turbo gasket, fixed most of the rattles and squeaks in the cab
    - started collecting bits to redo the entire suspension. So far bought a steering damper, and the terrifirma steering arm kit. I will be upgrading the entire suspension but donít want to lift it.

    Bruce, if you don't want to lift it, then get LR heavy-duty coils for the front and airbag helpers for the rear.

    I'd recommend Bilstein or Koni shocks over Terrafirma.

    Or go completely air? http://onairsuspension.uk/4X4-pickup...4x4_130/fa_130

    Thanks Orxy. I already have heavy duty springs but the ride is very hard.

    the air setup looks interesting.

    Mashozi is coming together.

    Fitted a new steering damper. It feels slightly stiffer than the original.

    now I need to make up my mind. Should I fit the boost wheels in black (swambo’s choice) with some decent tyres or keep these?

    Why not go halvies and get the steel wheels powder-coated in black or gunmetal/dark grey? ?

    IMHO, it will make a the truck look great!

    Tyres look like new, rather use this set until they're worn down, then replace? Unless you can trade these in on a new set?

    Don't want to be a party pooper, but are you going for looks or practicality? I'd keep the current wheels as is, especially since you've put on new tires up front. Similar for the rest, at first add stuff that enhances drive ability and makes camping trips easier.
