Table is a good idea, great use of space.
Regarding the registration plate lamp, will you be putting a housing on it?

No housing on the lamp, there`s no need for it... Going to install everything tomorrow. Leaving for a 4 day offroad event on Tuesday morning... :-)

Great license plate. All you need to do is paint over the Y.

The thing I like about the German plates are that you can tell what area the vehicles are from.

Ulm & Alb-Donau-Kreis, Baden-Württemberg

I remember riding with my buddy from K and we would see a poor driver and he would comment on the drivers from %$#@^% being shitty. In Canada we just complain about taxi drivers or people from the prairie provinces who have never seen a corner etc...

No problem. I like to post up stuff when there`s interest...

Returned from the offroad event today. The L300 did really well, i even got really good fuel mileage, actually the best since i bought it...

First we did some mild offroading. No pics of the difficult stuff though...

What a wonderful story. So good to see someone not letting the tinworm win and putting life back into a car rather than parting it out.

Great work!
