Grover's bits pics...

I ordered Grover with a few bits and pieces - and am getting him ready for the big lap next May - so here are some PICS...

Opposite Lock helped me out - especially at making my wallet lighter...



Just in case the touring wagon goes troppo....



So the Snorkel - yep - I'm a nutter - Genuine LR thanks....



OK - well the spare wheel carrier - has gotta be a good idea - yep - I could have hand crafted it from pig iron in my clay furnace under the house, but nope - got this one instead...







Moving right along - who doesn't want 240 Volts....






RightRow - didn't Hiline want some pics of the back seats? I hope so - here they are...









OK - almost finished - roller draws - another good idea...



Water storage...



And finally - my Air Compressor - OL Blue Tongue IV...



Our new Defender has opened up a new world for us - we're loving it.

Well congratulations on ALL the accessories.... you have done well and it's obvious the fender bug has bitten well

Now just need to give her a couple battle scars

Here are a few more details - Drawers are from Outback and I also have a 100Amp hour Commander Deep Cycle Gel battery, controlled by Drivesafe's SC-40 - this is powering my compressor, Fridge and inverter.

Forgot the checker plate pic - black wingtops coming soon too (Austral still waiting for their arrival)...



Oh yeah - and here's the work light....



its definitely true love!

Thanks guys - I had plenty of time to think about what I was going to do once the vehicle arrived - and I'm pretty happy with the reults so far.

all looks great... is the bash plate an original accessory? or OL?



secondarily, how about a cargo barrier to keep all that loose stuff in the back where it belongs?

and fridge access? looks like might be a bit tight to get to easily?
