    Radiator stop leak

    Each to their own , I’m going off my own experience which has never given positive results and led me to the conclusion that there is only one way to fix a leaky radiator. No offence meant or taken James

    You might as well crack an egg in to the rad , just as effective! I still say there is only one cure for a leaky rad

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    As long as Defenders are available second hand does any of this really matter ? The luddites and the purists can take their pick from a basic 2 1/4 petrol 90 right up to the last Tdci 110 xs which let’s face it apart from a little bit of electronics is the same vehicle whilst the trend followers and modern buyer (?) can pay through the nose for the latest Defender (when it’s finally released) PLUS once the new one is released there will be plenty of high spec (high spec 🤣) REAL defenders on the market for those who prefer it . It’s a win win as far as I can see . 23 pages of discussion proves that there is s great passion for the defender and land rovers in general although god knows why as Land Rover the company couldn’t give two hoots about the loyal owners of “classic” landies who are the ones who built the legend . Makes no odds to me , I can’t afford a new defender and from what I’ve seen of it so far I don’t want one either , I’m happy with my 110 (or should I say I will be when it’s built ) . Just my tuppence worth James
  7. Also need to reinstate the full chassis as it’s bobtailed at the mo (a moment of madness) will make my own 1/4 chassis as I want to make my own heavy duty rear crossmember , I have a plasma cutter and a friends 110 for a template so no problems there
  8. And the motor will have a roll cage which will be/carry a low profile roof rack , I’ve made rollcages before but might have to outsource the bending this time as I would like it in CDS and I only have a plumbers type pipe bender not a mandrel bender . I’m not bad at bodywork either . This is a bobtailed bullnosed traybacked disco 200 , engine 10 inches back in the chassis etc etc . For sale if anybody wants it
  9. Also have this bobtailed 110 body to cut up and use as needed , hoping to use this for the b post bulkhead so that I don’t have to cut up the new Hicap bulkhead that I have
  10. So plan on using these , either the full piece inc the quarter light or just the square , depends how it looks , obviously the whole unit slides out of the disco door inc the leccy motor 👌🏻

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    When I worked full time as a mechanic it horrified me to find that 3 yr old motors getting their first mot and non main stealer service 9 times out of 10 had never even had their rear wheels removed , bloody things were usually glued on ! I worked at “a back street garage “ or as we preferred to be called An independent garage . The younger mechanics couldn’t fix anything without diagnostics BUT that is all the college trains them in nowadays. Luckily I’m old school and grew up pulling tractors and stock cars apart although I did end up doing all the 4x4 work ☹️I did get freelander clutches down to a fine art though !
  12. Alas no , having discussed it with SWMBO we have agreed that funds won’t allow it at the moment however that does mean I can concentrate on MUD . I have been looking at how I can use disco 1 rear door windows for the rear door(s) in the Hicap, updates and fotos by the weekend
  13. Maverik has thrown a spanner in the works 🤨
  14. All positive encouragement 👍🏻I’m not completely mad then , excellent
