  1. The older ones don't have a spider, different alarm system. Sorry, I don't know much about them.
  2. SVO often used to just farm stuff out to other 3rd parties, and then stick an SVO badge on it and a hefty markup. They may do more in house nowadays, I worked with LR a few years ago now.
  3. Got any alternative angles of that? Looks very nice
  4. Probably find they are all up to it once another couple of years has passed. I can't believe they were so ****ing arrogant as to think they were going to get away with it.
  5. You may not get an answer as it is quite an old post. Try a private message to CJ1. If you don't have any luck, the accessory fitting instructions for all genuine accessories are in one of the RAVE manuals, so you could always try and download those from somewhere and get it that way. Or somebody who has them installed may be kind enough to look and extract the pages.
  6. I'd never heard of it, but that looks nice
  7. I doubt it as the original post was 2010
  8. I'm not being difficult, just pointing out that people with electric winches often seem to spend quite a lot of time fixing them, whereas I have grown used to not worrying at all about whether the MM will work regardless of how long it is since I last used it. I used to have an 8274 before that and on several occasions experienced the dreaded "click - nothing" when I needed it to work. Carry a hammer As an aside, if I was buying a new winch now, I'd probably get a Goldfish, as I imported a few for customers in my old job and they seemed pretty good.
  9. Electric winches maybe. I have successfully ignored my Milemarker for about ten years, other than when I need it to pull something with it. Only thing I have done is to take off the mount and clean it up and respray it about half way through, the same needs doing again now.
  10. What would it typically cost (in terms of number of hours labour) for a full respray on a Defender 110 in a UK paint shop? Including tidying up the usual rusty bits around the bulkhead and cappings.
  11. Floor paints are a waste of time in my experience. I spent ages with my last new-build garage, left the floor for 6 months as per instructions, then got all the dust out of it, put some PVA bond stuff on that was supposed to be for exactly the job I was doing and then the top coat, and it was all coming off within six months. The current garage I just left as bare concrete. The other option to seal it effectively just spill a load of stuff you don't want to spill on the floor, like a drum of of gloss paint, it will stay there forever.
  12. No they don't, and I'm not in the UK but it's easier/cheaper to order from there rather than other countries.
  13. Have had an ARB Speedy Seal puncture repair kit for a few years now, brilliant item which has saved me a lot of inconvenience and cost, but I am nearly out of the rubber string. The ARB kit has been very good and have had very few repeat problems with items up to about the size of a 6" nail in the tyre. Those that have failed have normally been optimistic repairs - through the shoulder of the tyre or similar, where I had doubts that it would be effective at the time of repair. I cannot see anywhere selling the genuine Speedy Seal strings in the UK - they are available from the US but very expensive - any feedback on whether it is worth getting these or are any of the Ebay cheapies just as good in practice? I have ordered some more generic repair strings off Ebay but not sure if they will be any good.
  14. MTs on hard packed snow are liable to lead to an increase in your laundry bill so I suppose they avoid advertising them for mud and snow. ATs are much better as there are more grippy edges on an AT.
