To make it really pop, you need to replace all of the painted hardware on the transfer case and transmission. Fortunately for you, I already went through the trouble of listing all of the sizes and a source in a another thread

🤷‍♂️ Painted parts? Link the other thread

Nice I think the yellow will really pop in the engine bay plus it goes along with our construction theme.

Here is a picture of what we used. It is a John Deere yellow code.

Work has been crazy busy lately just added another mechanic to the garage to help keep with all our field repairs. We were also able to sneak this new rig in for some quick upgrades before putting her to work.

Uncovered the 130 to get her back on track, shooting for The Martha’s Vineyard LR event on 8/1/21 as a target date to be complete for the show. Hope we pull it off.

sprayed the underside of the bed and primed the topside. Trying to get a few more body parts on this week.

oh squeezed in another job.. swapped the the 300TDI for an old 19j in this cool 110 pickup for our first Land Rover customer at East Coast Customs

Starting to look like a Defender again. Bed on. Fitted the rock sliders and windscreen roll bar. Paint the fenders and get a few more parts on.

Man you got some nice toys in that garage! Truck is looking amazing.

What undercoating product did you use? Looking to do similar to my 110 while the body is off..

Ha thx!

Here is what we use. We sprayed it under the bed, cab and fender wells. Add hardener and spray on. We use it in the beds of all our work trucks. Wears like iron.

@Norton, I have been thinking about intake to use on my R2.8 build. I have an 88, so the intake is on the left (like Greta)...but I am considering getting the 300tdi fender and intake parts so that it will be on the right (like Stella) and closer to the cummins intake. I figure this will ease the routing of intake behind the block and likely keep the incoming air cooler. What did you do on Greta and what are you plans with Stella for intake?

Here is a picture of Greta - we went behind the engine and then flex tubing to get under everything.

On Stella we plan to go out the passenger side, haven't decided if we are going to do a snorkel or a scoop on the fender.

Not trying to be an ass. You trust that eBay airfilter on this thing ?

I asked because I'm in the same conundrum. Right now I'm just running a cone filter on the end of my turbo on my new motor and it's so ear piercingly loud due to the ultra high boost that I'm going to have to run an air box.

Is it just the photo angle or is the engine pointing toward the right front? It doesn’t look parallel with the axle housing
