Looking a bit more vehicular

Some more progress on the Land Rover rebuild yesterday: we got the second axle on, the rest of the lower part of the steering connected, and the engine and gearbox in (with new clutch and cambelt).

I also spray-painted the engine, with high-temperature engine paint. This photo shows just the red parts; I also painted all the covers gold, and the exhaust silver. Partly just to look nice, and partly to show up oil leaks.

Now it looks like this — much more recognizable as a vehicle; in fact, to those who know the insides of Land Rovers, it’s quite recognizable as a Defender, just missing bodywork, seats and steering wheel!
