  1. It's illegal to use a mobile phone whilst driving, but you can stare at a 10" screen in the middle of the dash when you want to change from Slayer's Reign in Blood to Kenny Roger's Greatest Hits on Spotify whilst deciding whether your DRL's should match the current cloud cover outside and be a little brighter. Touchscreens are for supermarket checkouts and ipads

  3. I was meaning once you get into needing planning consent what might have been a very cheap, hassle free job can rapidly escalate. Getting planning consent isn't a major cost considered as part of a major extension - it hurts if you're only doing a very small job.

  9. The £115 injector set of nozzles from ebay arrived today (great delivery service). First impressions are good. They look genuine to me: provided in bosch plastic sealed tubes, 4 new copper washers, the markings on the nozzle are embossed not just printed, the needles are machined to a fine point. Just got to wait for the expensive one from Eurocar parts later in the week for comparison, but these ebay ones seem real to me. This feels like a weird version of antiques road show.

  11. The main problem I think you are going to have is that with zero preload and thinks loose the CW and the Pinion will have been meshing poorly / incorrectly and as such will have worn incorrectly. If so no amount of re jiggling is going to return it to good, and as such the prints will be poor. Its really more as to how fussy you want to be - salisburys are an ancient diff a la DANA 60 which are clunky anyway even when rebuilt properly, and rarely fail, they will end up making more noise than your ears can take pre failure, so my advice is to do the best you can and then see ho

  13. Running a few bits of steel pipe rather than all rubber hose helps cooling too, some LR factory "coolers" for PAS/fuel/oil are just a loop of steel pipe.

  14. That's what I love about Harry's video's. Be it a car review, talking about the farm, going into the facts and figures of his collection or facts and figures about ICE vs electric its always a balanced look at everything. None of the all too often youtuber rubbish where they're worried about saying the wrong thing and not getting another car, or they're reviewing something they know nothing about. Same reason why I like listening to people like Andrew Frankel, Clarkson et-al, not some youtube yuppy who's reviewing the latest supercar with no background knowledge.

  15. The reason I asked Red110 is that the TD4 engine was only fitted to the Freelander. The Ford Transit engine is not a TD4 🥴 Mo

  17. Sometimes - but usually we have a workshop close enough to the action. SFX is split into two bits - Workshop & Floor. Floor is intended to run things on the studio (or location) floor while workshop build them. There's a fair cross-over between the two. Floor have a 'Unit Truck' which is equipped with limited workshop facilities - welding, cutting, drilling so they can 'MacGyver' (If you're Floor & reading this, pretend I said 'Improvise' 😉) solutions to problems that occur and need instant fixes. Anything major comes back to the workshop crew, although the fix might take pla

  18. A little chillier than Taunton Deane where I was living at the time. Made it down to -3oC which matched the local record and caused a lot of comment locally

  19. There's a nice hole in the market that the Jimny has left, a medium sized off roader (the latest version was no longer small, IMHO), with all the basics and nothing else. But I suspect McGovern couldn't bring himself that low.

  20. What’s happened was entirely predictable, and is basically a result of LR getting too greedy. They wanted their 3 brands, Range Rover, Discovery and Defender to each have multiple vehicles and capture as much of the growing SUV market as possible. The problem is instead of toughening up the Discovery brand to make it more rugged/adventurous to reinforce that brand perception of LR, but also make it appealing to a wide audience of families, young, old etc. and differentiate the discovery from other car makers. Instead they’ve softened up the Defender, so as it’s been said numerous times

  21. This is what upsets so many Defender fans - it’s the positioning of this vehicle in the lineage of the Series and Defender line, rather than as a separate model like the Discovery, Freelander or whatever else. This vehicle fits well in the Discovery camp, but is the antithesis of what Defenders are all about. So, the upset is that they killed the Defender, promised a replacement and gave us something totally inappropriate and gave it the same name. They doubled down on destroying the name and the heritage. The new model is very clever, too clever to be trusted many argue, but an excellent

  22. Yeah Jez has moved on (family life etc.) and someone else cloned the high-ratio diffs he was making which meant he couldn't do any more. The other bits I've kept on with, as much as anything because I still have a vehicle with the 303's fitted so I need to keep my stuff going. Don't always have a huge stock as that costs money, but can get most things one way or another - I don't think there's any service item I wouldn't feel confident being able to source fairly easily.
