  SOUNDPROOFING, part 2: sound absorbing material underside of the hood
last updated: 01-09-06

As part of the soundproofing project I added some sound absorbing material on the underside of the hood. The result is clearly recognizable. Total soundlevels are reduced and especially the shrill sounds are totaly gone. The roaring of the diesel engine stays the same.

  SOUNDPROOFING, part 1: isolation of the roof
last updated: 23-08-06

As part of the soundproofing project the roof is padded with some sound absorbing material from the inside. Despite I haven't done something to the soundproofing of the bulkhead, the result of the sound absorbing material is clearly remarkable. The material I used for is Tecnocell of Merford. Just like the other sound absorbing and isolation materials this is obtainable from www.akoestiekwinkel.nl and www.noisecontrol.nl.

  EXHAUST SILENCER
last updated: 08-08-06

Replacing the rear pipe of the exhaust. It looks that easy, but what a disillusion! The rear part of the exhaust was broken. The Parts Manual told me that partno. 599378 was the right exhaust pipe and I ordered it at Paddock Spares. A couple of days later it was allready there, thanks to Paddock! I compared the old and the new exhaust and they seemed identical, so everything seems perfect and it couldn't be a tough job to do. At the very most some rusted bolts to grind off. But it turned out something different...

  BUSH WIRES
last updated: 05-08-06

I thought it was a good idea to have some bush wires on the Land Rover.Not that I drive that often in the bush, but it gives such a good look. And when camping it's also a good laundry line isn't it?

  DEFENDER SEATBELTS
last updated: 05-08-06

At this moment it's not legal to have people in the back of my Land Rover, because it's an ex-MOD Land Rover so it has licence plates for a commercial vehicle. Plans are to obtain a regular licence and MOT, such that people can legally be transported in the rear seats. It is uncertain that I get these registration plates, but the new seatbelts couldn't be the problem! I got a pair of used Defender seatbelts. Most fittingpoints are allready in the Land Rover. Just screw in some bolts and ready.

  ALUMINIUM CHEQUERPLATE WINGTOPS
last updated: 05-08-06

Because of the great looks I've fitted some aluminium chequerplate wingtops. It's allways useful when climbing onto the car. As the stepladder on the back isn't ready yet, the wingtops are the only way onto the top of the car. The roofrack is still a perfect place to make some nice pictures. And I have experienced that sitting on the wingtop with the window as a back rest, is the perfect place to have lunch in summer :-) (don't forget to close the 'aircoflaps')

  CHAIRS OF A HONDA CRX
last updated: 15-07-06

The chairs fitted as standard in this Land Rover didn't give that much support to the back. And the lack of sidesupport of these chairs caused that I was sliding on the pillow when taking a short turn. There are a several options for other chairs. Finally I haven chosen the chairs of a Honda CRX. The sitting pillow of this chair is pretty low, so there's no problem with your legs under the steering wheel. These chairs are easy to obtain from Ebay or something and aren't very expensive. At last it's perfect that the back could be turned over to the front, because these chairs are originaly fitted in a three doors car. This is necessary for fueling, more specifics at the photos.
