  1. Romahomepete

    RAL 5228

    Unless you are painting the whole vehicle when buying paint by ref no is OK you are better having an existing panel scanned and the paint matched to that as the paint will already have faded. Peter
  2. It is acceptable to use cable ties to retain TRE boots, if you buy a CV boot kit for a modern car the chances are that it will come with cable ties instead of metal clips. People like Blanchards may have better quality NOS boots. I keep a stock of boots in as they split on a regiular basis, whatever they are made of they are not the same quality as originals. Peter
  3. You would expect them to include all the bits in the kit!! Peter
  4. Moving the backplate round 1 hole is common, it also make bleeding them much easier. I am fortunate though I didnt need to do it on mine but I did fit the cylinders pipes and shoes on the bench before fitting on the land rover. Oh and I also filled the cylinders with brake fluid whilst on the bench. Small ratchet strap round the shoes to keep in place and I bled the brakes before fitting the drums. Peter
  5. You could also bring a bucket load of the pierburg belt drive pumps from your local scrappy. They were standard fit on PSA cars in the 80s and 90s. Peter
  6. Our conservatory roof is twinwall plastic sheet, 27 years so far and still going strong. To save future problems with the dormer would it be possible to put a sloping roof from the front up to the ridge line then slate it even of it is a shallow angle, the alternative would be a fibreglass cap. Bothe are more expensive than refelting but you will not be facing a replacement in 10 years. Peter
  7. It is the exposed part of the thread that corrodes. It is worth while if the studs are in good condition putting double nuts on to cover all exposed threads, then you dont destroy the inner brass nut when undoing. Peter
  8. Excellent, you will not be disappointed with the standard of their work or their prices Peter
  9. Leaf Sprung Landys at Stalmine near Fleetwood, are really good craftsmen who have a passion for land rovers. They own and drive them as well as repairing and restoring them
  10. Early 2s (58) withe the IOE engine were a darker blue. Peter
  11. Measure the distance round all the pulleys and go to your local bearing supplier, he will be able to get a v belt to fit that is cheaper than a normal fan belt. If you can work out the sizing you can also buy from Ebay. Have you checked that your pulleys are in line as that is the most common cause of belts shredding. Peter
  12. If you notice my bracket is a slightly different shape to the pukka one, that is to get round the galvanised capping. Peter
  13. The mirror arms are the same as fited to early Sherpas and some Bedford CFs.. Peter
  14. I have home made versions of the type that 17H is showing. I did buy some but somewhere along the line the hole spacings didnt work so I bent some steel to the same shape and adjusted my hole centres to my mirrors and hinges
  15. I have mirrors Like the ones shown in 17Hs first post, they are on home made brackets that fit behind the door hinge and I have large tractor mirror heads, they are brilliant Peter
