  2. Here’s mine for some sweet dreams…. None of that IVA BS here so it’s linked, LS swapped, heavily modified & will be getting some custom 609 axles once I can afford the last few parts… enjoy 👍

  3. As far as I'm concerned, they're all Freelanders. Unless it was designed with a stick on the beach in Anglesey, updated by David Bache, it's a Freelander.

  4. Presumably less than 8m wide or it wouldn’t be able to get out without gates

  5. I call bull****. Something else would have been behind it and the rag is too lazy and too unprofessional to find out the real story, going for an easy rant piece that wind up their readers.

  8. the top 2 boxes are the vehicles identity including it military reg number [ERM] it doesn't say fits a 90 or 110 but that can be determined from the VIN/Chassis number the 3rd box is its military history of dates/what units it served with.

  9. https://www.networldsports.co.uk/golf/golf-nets/22mm-golf-impact-ball-stop-netting-standard-size.html This is the stuff, it's basically cargo net but a fraction of the price you would pay in any 4x4 orientated shop or outlet and will come with sewn seamed edges. It's less than £30 for 3sqm. I was lucky and picked up a huge sheet of it for free

  10. I came across a golf net which is what is used in front of golfers who want to practice their swings. If you hunt around you can pick them up pretty cheap and they’re about 3sqm in size

  11. i use a trailer cargo net , removed the bungee cord , and fitted a wire cord through it , on the front and back there's a aluminium tube supporting the front and back , the side's are fixed to aircraft cargo rails (mounted on the side's just under the roof)

  12. Yes that's right. I suggest check crank endfloat/thrusts too before ordering

  13. I didn't build it in the end! I would love to have done but things changed and I lost my storage/workshop and I was also worried about iva. Ended up buying another 90 so the 100 inch will have to remain a dream for now 😉

  14. The one I have in the roof of the ibex is a trailer bungee luggage net, it works well but I had to double up on the bungee cord as the squares were a bit big. The 110 has a cheap eBay special hanging on one side it's good enough to throw coats in but I doubt it would take much more. Mike

  15. Thank you all. I took my 110 up to Stafford from Yeovil and back in a day and it performed really well (I did wonder if the 19J would give up and I'd be returning on a flatbed). So I am in no rush with this at all. The 200tdi seems to be in good condition, Ian replaced the pistons 5 or 6 years ago and the crowns look to be in excellent condition with no cracks and the bores aren't glazed or scored and have a good cross hatch pattern. I am renewing the oil pump internals plus all seals and gaskets and I'll inspect the bearings to decide if they're still good or could do with replacing so I will hopefully end up with a good reliable engine coupled to a nice R380 stumpy gearbox and rebuilt LT230. I have a tin of gold engine enamel so it will look as good as @western 200Tdi when I'm done Then my focus will have to be the back axle before it forces me to act!

  16. I look at it from the opposite direction - decent ATs give no negative impact to noise or MPG deficiency over road tyres and so for me it’s a choice of them or MTs. While I agree the grip performance of ATs over road tyres is less of an improvement than say MTs compared to ATs, for me it’s more about durability and longevity of the tyre and this is far better in an AT.

  17. Wolfs and 255s are a classic combination, I'm glad they could be of use and I hope they serve you well! I think you chose the right option with the lettering inside. Absolute pleasure to do a deal with you.

  18. After finally collecting some rubber corners from @ThreePointFive it was time to fit them. i had done some calculations and figured if I went for metric equivalent of the current 7.50 x 16’s with a little more width I could ditch the spacers and get a good fill to the arch’s. My calulations we’re a little off I think as these fill the wheel arch’s and make the other tyres look like mini wheels! They do look good though 😁 With a good overlanding vehicle it’s always good to prep for every eventuality and one thing is being able to swap tyres on the rims and I had 5 attempts to get it right 😏 Not many pictures as I was sweating my arse off doing it and with Nikki we managed to get a good routine going. Wheel off ready to for the bead to be broken which is the hardest part. Forget limp hammers, forget sledge hammers, forget using the weight of the truck with a scissor jack to push the bead off, it took Nikkis truck and Nikki stood on the opposite side of the rim to drive her Mitsubishi onto the wheels to break the bead and a few attempts until we had a good rhythm to getting it break . We found the inside rim more difficult than the outer rim...not sure if that’s a normal thing? Gettig the tyre off , we went from the outside first and removed the rim through the back of the tyre which turned out to be the most awkward part after the bead breaking. Still we got them off Putting the tyres back on was pretty much a doddle and the opposite of removing them and I’m not sure why they are easier to put on but hey ho they are 😁 We have had a few discussions about white lettering inside or outside and as Nikki choose the colour of the truck I won this one and got to keep the white lettering out of sight 😁 ive still got the spacers on but they’re coming off

  20. Not a this morning project, but having 10 days self isolation following a trip overseas means I get to crack in plastering the house....5 days = 82 20kg bags of lime hemp plaster on the walls and nearly 2 rooms base coated. Only another 98 bags to go to finish the delivery off....lots more still to do.
