I do have the other one, just not sure how it was supposed to go in. Has what looks like some broken green pieces in it and was hot glued with damn near an entire stick. stuck to the metal, not the plastic, go figure. Just wondering If I can actually get that piece. not critical.
The light filter (green) sits on the inside of the gauge and the white or black bulb surround threads into the filter - so when the filter cracks or breaks there is no OE way to repair without pulling the gauge apart. Most glue or use a snap fit bulb holder, or replace the gauge...

I found a few green threads in the white portion of the bulb holder, so that makes sense. being that this setup is temporary, ill just plug the hole and run without anything there. Seem doesn't look like you can buy just those parts.

Drilling for the rear Fog/Reverse lights. Anyone have a Puma tub they can grab a measurement for me from the holes in ? I can look on the old panels but if I recall the 95mm plinths barely covered up the old holes. Just figure it worth knowing the actual measurement. Thanks.

Still looking for some measurements on rear fog and reverse lamp placement if anyone happens to have a td5/tdci tub without lights installed. Thanks

Found some more LR goodness today. Replaced these supports with galvy ones from yrm (thicker with rivnuts), and the right side bolt plate that attached from the inside is permanently wedged between the filler neck recess and the bulkhead. Of course its rusted, so what do people do, cut the bolt off the bolt plate from the front and just nut and bolt without the bolt plate?

Anyone know the general dimensions of the foam between the windscreen and roof? I realized there is an inner rubber gasket and what looks like foam strip (LR055344) . I may see if the crappy bearmach lower windscreen seal fits. Gap is huge without it and assume it goes close to the edge. Thanks

YRM sells a wonderful lower windscreen-bulkhead seal. The top one is thin, you could get away with using weatherstripping foam from the hardware store perhaps. The gap should not be extreme on the roof-windscreen, they should mate nicely. The leading edge is caulked from the factory though.

That's what I'm seeing. An old caulk job when some space to fill. I'll see if the crappy lower seal fits the width, I have some Frost King on standby anyway. Just didn't know exactly where the factory foam was, as I didn't have any on my roof or windscreen, but the roof I got elsewhere. I'll check it the yrm for after the repaint.
