  1. I really needed to get out and have a bit of a break. So took the OneTen out for a spin. Found a place for the lunch break.. Met with a group of German / Russian occupied LR's who saw me parked in the shades and asked if they could join me for lunch.. Of course they could and this "lunch meet" ran into the afternoon as we enjoyed the P&Q, talked about life in general and had a good time. Based in Germany, they usually go into RU to visit friends & family but not now. So they made do with a "round the Alps Tour" but found the driving not as much fun as they'd

  2. Morning all. If you saw the forum was offline for over an hour this morning - it was due to a major software upgrade. The main thrust of this is around a new interface, which is why it looks rather different ! and all about enhanced security. Certain functionality has been removed, some replaced and some new, but, as with any major software upgrade it is possible there could be a few quirks ! If so post up here, some we might be able to sort, some possibly not ! Nige And the LR4x4 A&M Team

  4. If you can override the CSS with these changes, it makes the whole place a lot more palatable: .ipsNavBar_primary > ul > li > a{ font-size: 16px; } .ipsNavBar_secondary > li > a{ font-size: 15px; } .ipsBreadcrumb { font-size:13px; color: rgba( var(--theme-text_light), 1 ); } .ipsBreadcrumb [data-role="breadcrumbList"] > li:not(:first-child):last-child { opacity: 0.7; } :root { --theme-alternate_button_font: 251, 251, 251; --theme-area_background_reset: 251, 251, 251; --theme-button_bar: 251, 251, 251; --theme-header: 18, 101, 161; -

  5. As a professional software tester, I'd advise only using IE under duress and as the very last resort. So many better browsers.

  9. or run the winch rope under the car, to a snatch block at the back of the garage which will give a centralised pull.

  10. Must admit I've always thought that Ben (Elbekko) would make a good admin as he's got a lot of experience in that sort of thing.

  12. Why not build it so that it protects the car with no damage? ARB seem to manage it for all the '76s running around out there.

  13. Yes, can't work out why there is a right hand column on some screens, and some not, and why when it is empty, is it still there?

  14. Yeah, I popped your CSS into Stylus, and it looks much nicer now. Just the stupidly narrow new content screen left.

  15. Clear your cache, it is everywhere, and frankly not very readable. Sample font here: https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Inter?preview.text=Almost+before+we+knew+it,+we+had+left+the+ground.+LR4x4+&preview.text_type=custom

  16. Even my Morgan 1600 engine (Ford Cross Flow, not the most sophisticated engine ever) needs spanners and heavy machine tools. Modern engines seem to be pretty good, so long as the sparks don't leak out or the oil stops. Part of the solution seems to build the peripheries to a quality, not a price. How many times has your otherwise functional vehicle been stopped by a 25p failed connector or a bolt that was not thread locked?

  17. I think it's the concern that parts availability is inadequate in the long term, so the spoon, bailing twine and duct tape repair options might be relevent. I think that 3D printing might alleviate some of this issue, as it's becoming more widely available, but it's wise to be skeptical about the support available for a complex expensive machine that you depend on.

  18. This is what it would look like with above CSS fixes in place: *edited to show in PNG, as JPG compression completely killed the appearance*

  19. Is the aspiration to have an engine you can repair with a bottle opener and a spoon ? All engines have always had the capacity to have an issue that can’t be repaired at the side of the road, so the question is surely more around reliability? - and with modern oils and manufacturing tolerances there seem to be lots of modern engines that have done vast mileages without issue ?

  20. 100% agree, stainless is really good at galling. Probably one of it's worst characteristics.

  22. That is a super good question. Afraid I don't have the answers. I have just added a video review in post 2 above. During the off road test you can see, that while the suspension does move, it never replicates the amount of flex that it attained on the ramps. So maybe you are correct in your assumption.

  23. I've had a few of the cheap chinese TFT screen ones and they've been great value - Eonon and Xtrons seem to be the stand-out names. I fitted a stupidly-cheap (£12) single-din unit in the 127 as it was very low profile (half depth, and most of that was empty!) but may upgrade it to a double-DIN Android jobby later. I've got a double-din Android unit in my car which works OK, the optional DAB dongle is complete garbage unless you're parked but I wasn't expecting much from that. It's got USB / aux / bluetooth which covers most ways of getting stuff into it and it was only about £50.

  24. Similarly, I used an old piece of tow bar with a couple of M10 rawlbolts. It won't take much force, just rolling a vehicle into the garage.

  26. I've got an Allisport catch tank like you , I've not looked but can you buy pressure release valves like used on air lines then fit it to the tank so if it does build up then it will vent automatically as a safe guard , no nothing about them but how does a turbo dump valve work and could that be adapted ? Just a quick look on fleabay found this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Adjustable-Universal-25mm-Recirculating-Bov-Dump-Blow-Off-Diverter-Valve/263332927694?hash=item3d4fdd98ce:g:hJQAAOSwHUhaEX1m haven't looked into it much as I'm still trying to make up my mind whether to rework the 2
