I guess I owe some serious updates on this thread, I thought I had been keeping up on here but apparently I was wrong.

The front seats have been redone, with gray leather seats out of a Windstar, with twin armrests lol. The headliner has been replaced and sound killer added to the roof. I picked up a TerraFirma overhead console and three led dome lights. Hope to get that in this weekend. I also just picked up some Land Rover OEM HD springs for her and the all new TerraFirma All-Terrain shocks for all 4 corners

She also now has a 3.9 out of a RRC, 230 cam, Edelbrock intake, with a Holley 4 barrel on top. New radiator and clutch while I was at it. She runs nice and strong now

Time for the pics...

I spent most of spring working on the MG getting her on the road, then keeping her going. Around August I got off my ass and started working on the 110. I tend to update the thread on the Lucky8 forum pretty regularly and on landroverforums.

Got the fronts done today with new shocks and springs. One shock turret was rotted out lucky for me being a long time Rover owner I had 3 or 4 on the shelf. So it was a grab and go fix.

It was a definite improvement, the ride quality is good. Better than OME/Blings I've ran in the past.

Of course anything would have been an improvement over the original land rover shocks I pulled out.

-3 and I went out to play with it a bit more. I replaced all the turn/stop/marker lights with new lenses from our friends at Lucky8. It's amazing how much the new lenses improve the look. The old ones were clouded and cracked. Now you might even see my brake lights now lol.

No pics my fingers were to cold to get the touch screen on my phone to work lol

Got the suspension done.

It was a tight fit backing her into the garage.



One side done. The fit was looking a little to tight for my liking. I had my wife come out before I moved it around to get to the other side to watch and make sure I didn't rip the garage door down.



And both sides done.



It raised the rear end about 2" that wouldn't be surprising except I put on stock springs..

Then I moved on to the leaking seal on the fuel level sender.



Then I washed it cleaned the garage up a bit and called it a night.

Forgot I finally found a use for the Woodland Camo ruck sack cover laying in the garage for years. Apparently a large ruck cover is more than big enough to cover a tire.

It was freaking cold out so I cleaned a bit around the garage and watched football. Found a pair of tail light guards I had picked up used about a year ago laying on the shelf so I went outside and installed them real quick. Everytime I look at the back of the 110 I want to find one of the series Land Rover emblems that are metal and say 4wd station wagon. Just always seem to miss out on them.

I also filled the gas tank all the way up for the first time in a year. Anything above about half before and it leaked fuel hence the repair yesterday. Fingers crossed so far so good no fuel leaking anymore.

My wheel spacers should be here tomorrow, so I can get those on and be able to run center caps on my rims and have full lock to lock steering back. Tires are rubbing on the radius arms now.

Pic of the light guard installed.






Crappy night cell phone pics I know....

So my front wheel spacers showed up today, so out into the 7 degree afternoon I went and installed them. The 110 definitely has a wider more aggressive looking stance with the spacers.

I tried to take pics but it was getting dark and my phone said it was to cold for the flash to work...

So you just get pics of the spacers.



and my ice tea that was out there with me, for 45 minutes....

I warmed up my phone a bit and decided to try and take a few pics the front tires have the spacers and rears do not yet. They will hopefully be here in the next few days.
