  1. Dash did not need to be removed. Just the vertical side trims on the A pillars. The problem areas are the corners. The section across the top of the dash was no problem at all. It did help to have an extra pair of hands to help position square though. Not too much pressure from the outside as it makes pulling the seal through more tricky. As always, second time round will be easier! Good luck. Simon...
  2. Hi There, Perhaps a close up which *may* help? Simon...
  3. Hi Folks, Perfect. Thanks for the replies. All fixed up now. Simon...
  4. Hi Folks, 1997 110 Defender 300 Tdi Just noticed behind the clutch box and infront of the bulk head, there is a pipe and cable attached together with a bracket and clip. They all hang loose though. The bracket appears to have a hole ready for mounting somewhere. Please let me know if this should be mounted or is left loose like this. Many Thanks, Simon...
  5. Hi Folks, Thanks for all the replies and in particular "Eightpot" for more details on the whole process. Made a "spray booth" in the kitchen with some spare packing cardboard. Doing some trial runs on a spare piece of aluminium sheet first. Sourced an A1P3 mask after using a "sanding" mask which turned out to be useless. The actual panels I'll be spraying are the two front vent flaps which have now been paint stripped and wet sanded. Story for another day. Wish me luck! Simon....
  6. Thanks for replies so far. Have taken over the kitchen - other half so far keeping a sense of humour. Glad not to be in shed in this weather. Etching coats seem covered by above. Thanks for reply. How long from etch to first of colour coats? Touch dry 30 minutes or 24 hours? Simon...
  7. Hi Folks, Looking to spray up some bare aluminium. Granted will clean, degrease, wet sand P600, abrade, etch primer (2 coats), top metallic colour (2 coats) and lacquer (2 coats). Small panel, so using rattle cans. The cans all state touch dry timings of 30mins. However, would be intersted to know thoughts on how long to leave between coats, e.g. how long between etchs, how long from etch to colour, how long between colour coats and similaely to lacquer and between lacquers. Should you wait for touch dry, longer or shorter. Many thanks for advise, Simon...
  8. Update. Have tested the supply to the park switch. All good there. Looking more closely at the wipers, there is a fair amount of play. The wipers can be rotated somewhat on the splined drums. Will see if can tighten up later. Simon...
  9. Hi Folks, Having issue with the parking position of the front wipers. They come to rest around anywhere between 10-30 degress from the horizontal. Just changed the parking switch in the hope that it would alleviate the problem. However, issue still persists. Looking for suggestions on how to diagnose further. Many thanks, Simon...

  10. Hi Folks, Seen references in previous blog posts to some 2nd row seat extensions that were made by Trakkers. However, cannot see a current website reference to them. Looking at options for gaining some extra leg room in the 2nd row. Currently have 3 individual high back seats from Exmoor trim. Have also seen Exmoor do "Premium" seats quoting extra leg room. Can anybody comment on how much leg room is actually achieved? Many Thanks, Simon... Defender 110 CSW 300Tdi 1997
  11. Happy New Year. Looking forward to bundles of projects/adventures - assuming can get past “accounting”. Have fun...
  12. Yeah. Have seen that too sometime back. Making an assumption hear, however, have you considered putting some relays in place for the headlights? https://pellylandroverdefender.blogspot.com/p/headlights.html
  13. Thanks for all the information and image - really helps. Convinced that FRC7577 are way too long.
  14. Hi Folks, Been looking into the topic of wheel studs for use with Wolf wheels, in particular stud lengths. (Defender 110 CSW 1996 300 Tdi) Not a new topic and appreciate large numbers of folk use standard length studs with no reported issues. Not wanting to stir that debate - well maybe a little. However, came across these today - Zeus manufactured studs coming in at 56mm. Liking the look of the Zeus stubs as the FRC7577 extended studs look as though they will be way too long. http://www.zeus.uk.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=11x Has anybody had any experience of using them? Simon...
