  9. I painted my Marsland galv chassis, simply to keep it in good condition & prying eyes off it, I used vehicle coach paint primer & chassis black gloss paint from a local motor factors. even easier to fit engine/gearbox to the bare rolling chassis, then fit the bulkhead after, there's no way you can damage the bulkhead with the suspended big lumps of iron then. my own chassis change thread
  10. In our Tech Archive under 'popular modifications' to save you looking for it --------------
  11. like this one http://www.12voltplanet.co.uk/battery-isolator-switch-removeable-key-with-ignition-isolation.html this one will allow power to items like radio memory/clock or this one http://www.12voltplanet.co.uk/battery-isolator-switch-removeable-key.html this one switches everything off
  12. or the park switch on the wiper motor.
  13. your speedo transducer lives on the rear output housing just forward of the transmission brake, same location as any other 90/110. no need to jack the vehicle up, you can get underneath & change it.

  15. the Stainless bolt kit http://www.a2stainless.co.uk/Land-Rover-Defender-110-Chassis-Bolt-Kit_AJ5PM.aspx?nh=1 was probably in my chassis change thread, http://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/85416-new-chassis-for-my-1989-110/ glad the numbers helped, you can get zinc plated spire nuts to refix the floor plate,https://www.spaldingfasteners.co.uk/zinc-plated-steel-spire-speed-u-clips-no-4-6-8-10-12-14/ haven't found any stainless spire nuts/clips, but they are uaually made from spring steel.
