    V8 county ute

    The auto shifter is nearly done, I need to get the electrical side sorted with the lights to the console and park inhibitor switch, so more parts chasing.
    But Iíve been doing some work on the heater, the car came with the air con and heater in one which wasnít the best.
    So changing to standard defender heater , bought of gumtree.
    A few new brackets and wiring.
    Sorry no photos.
    But some of the hard line heater hoses had rusted on the ends, so I trimmed them off and put a flare on the end with gradually increasing the size of a socket and using a bfh to coerce the pipe
    Also made up a battery hold down brace
    Iíll have to spend some money and buy some new heater hosesV8 county ute
    As I canít make them

    Been busy in the shed most nights, although a bit slack on the photos.
    Pulled the speedo down, cleaned up and refitted.
    Heater fan switch required a new custom loom.
    I was chasing a Trunion for the heater cables, it was looking like $80 from the UK, stuff that Iíll make one

    I was then looking in my tub of assorted crap when I found an original oneV8 county ute

    So the heater is good.
    The wipers were running a bit slow so pulled the motor off cleaned up , some 800 wet and dry on the contact area and some electrical cleaner.
    Ta da. Maybe another 37 years and 500,000 klms.
    A new accelerator cable in today ď thanks to MarioĒ and time to knock off.

    Some dash work
    The hole for the original radio.
    Thereís not enough material on the sides to fit a blanking plate to so I modded the original radio tray

    Just leaving it blank for now.
    May put this there

    I picked up a el cheapo
    Radio, DVD, navigator that Iíll run OziExplorer on.
    The depth is a bit too tight for my liking, I can get it in without the cabling but itís tight, with use I think Iíd be asking for trouble.
    So space it out a bit.
