  1. I keep looking at this : https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F173833759403
  2. Perhaps a Grenadier will be an option for some of us.
  3. Hey ! Dont go and try to undermine our standing for saying JLR have got it all wrong !
  4. I guess it’s because they really don’t want their luxury brand to be sullied by the Defender market ?
  5. Sorry - my instagram filters aren’t working, it just wouldn’t do them justice without them. But for just twice the cost I was able to get two sets - one set are black to match the tyre shine, and one set are Santorini Black to match the roof. They look awesome.
  6. Not me - mine was in with my mechanic having the dust caps colour coded.
  7. I can’t remember this exactly ... but with my discovery 200tdi into my series I struggled to find the right adaptor to take the series sender - and I think it was because of the M16x1.00 thread - and in the end I found there was an OE part : ERC8973, and I bought mine from Steve Parker as it was slightly longer for a better fit. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F303051979995
  8. Whilst us hardcore buggers live in a country with no wilderness navigate the Darién Gap as our daily commute.
  9. A to B whilst ‘expressing their lifestyle values’ ....
  10. Hang on .... you have one don’t you ?
  11. Agree ⬆️ on the final shot - fantastic 😊 and great to see you looking so happy to have the end in sight.
  12. I bought my loom from them 10 years before I got to use it 😯, and I couldn’t remember how they’d said they would alter it. I got a similar response to you when I asked what diagrams they had on file: I think I had asked them to go with a diesel loom with a wire for the coil, which I planned to use for the stop solenoid. The layout of the starter on the 200 is the same as on the series 1 diesel (which I had presumed their diesel loom was replicating or based upon). The glow plug relay I had put to one side from the discovery the 200 came from - and just wired it up from that, using the choke light in the dash.
  13. Me too. It’s what your comfortable with though in the end, and what kind of relationship you have and / or need with Turners. A middle way might be to say that it’s deeply disappointing, but you’ll accept it if they could make some gesture of good will?
  14. It looks like an auto sparks loom - and they are usually very good ... If it is them then when it’s a standard loom I think they are just built to the original specification - when it’s a modified loom, ie for a diesel conversion - then there is a bit of working out how they’ve done it if you didn’t tell them how and where things should be.
  15. Well done 👍🏻 Did I imagine it.. or are you putting a headlining in ?
  16. Great news Hippo 😊👍🏻 They are a serious piece of kit aren’t they ? 😁
  17. Just be careful, as of course when a 2 stroke runs out of petrol it runs out of oil too....
  18. Could you strip it and take it into work ? 😊
  19. This is where it’s worth considering buying an ultrasonic cleaner ...
  20. They are indeed Waeco type connectors.
  21. You’ve built a beautiful winch 😍 I would like a period looking winch for the 80 - the issue is that the crank pulley on the 200 isn’t centred on the crossmember hole. So something like yours would work well - or I try and find a period looking drum winch. I haven’t planned to go to the Leafers.... I’ll look at it though 😊
