  1. Strange ... seems they blow hot and cold... just 2 minutes ago read a post on defender2.net from a regular poster saying how great they were. Never used they myself so no 1st hand experience. But from what I read it seems 50:50 whether I would ever use them.
  2. Interesting points raised. I agree it is purely aesthetics and serves no other purpose - and is very much an each to their own scenario. I like the panoramics on a 90, but I think it does not look right on a 110 (esp a SW). One thing that I did notice - I saw a photograph of an Original 90 with pano's sat beside a new 90 - suddenly the lineage became apparent and I could see a likeness that I had never seen before. (Although, Thats not why I am doing it... it is just something I quite fancy )
  3. That is my understanding - I want my interior trim to fit to finish the inside. As you say it is just for the look.
  4. Thanks for the feedback guys, that helps a lot. No point, paying to have sides painted for them to be completely hidden ... means I can use the extra ££ for more goodies
  5. I am planning on fitting panoramic glass as part of my rebuild - is any of the original side panel visible with Panoramics fitted? My side panels are currently a different colour to the rest of it. I just wonder if I need the added expense of getting them painted, only to be covered up? Some close up pics of panoramics fitted would be great too.
  6. Simon, you are you using for painting? I have the 90 rebuilt on galv chassis and and getting bodywork ready to paint, but have been let down by a painter - who are you using locally? (feel free to PM me rather than post) Greg
  7. Can anyone give me a part number for item 3 below - for some reason the online Microcat that I was using would not give me the part number.
  8. I labelled all the cables and have all the parts labelled in boxes for each section... bulkhead, doors etc ... but I didnt take pictures of the strip down
  9. Slackened off the tank this morning, just in case there was enough 'slack'. Had a good look and it appear that I am missing one of the tub floor pads, but it still does not look like it will haev enough clearance - even with a spacer in place. Will order some up and see what happens. In my enthusiasm to pull it all apart I didnt take any photographs... wish I had now!
  10. Exactly my set up Litch - even the same colour! My tub edge is sitting on the tank and there is a gap of a few mm between the chassis and tub floor. It is also new YRM tank brackets - will have a look and see if bracket can drop any.
  11. Should there be shims between the chassis and rear tub on a 200tdi 90? I have my refurbished tub back from the painter and a new galv chassis. But the tub is fouling on the top of the fuel tank and will not sit down onto the brackets on the chassis, should there be shims between the chassis and tub? I know there is a pad - presumably as an aid to stopping vibration, but should there also be shims to adjust the tub alignment on the chassis?
  12. The rear tub for my 1993 200tdi 90 is at the coachworks ready to get painted. The spray painter has asked me to confirm the paint colour. There are no paint markings on the vin plate. I know it is Coniston Green but searching all the resources I can find throws up 2 paint codes - LRC570 & LRC.570(b) - but I cannot find any information to confirm the difference. Can anyone help? I know there is another Coniston Green code LRC637 - but that is for later 1998+ models, so I am sure it is 570. But what is the difference?
  13. James that would be great if you could do a side by side comparison?
  14. Ahh... that might be the case ... i forgot about the pre tdi 2 piece door cards. I just keep reading that to replace ealier doors with td5/puma version you need new door cards. maybe they mean lift handle door cards wont fit. So maybe my question should be - are tdi and td5/puma door cards the same??
