  1. By the way, with the guard mesh in place, there is no way that the rear benches would fold up as the guard mesh projects backwards into the rear space. Still mulling over what to do with the rear load area. Liking the idea of boarding out in some way with a shelf that still allows to be easily removed and the benches utilised. Simon...
  2. Some images which may help for the rear mounting. First image - note that there is a plate with 2 welded nuts which fits to the underside of the body. A helping hand is useful. Second image - perhaps not obvious. The rear of the bench frames are secured with a screw/washer. Long screwdriver useful. The dog guard mesh was part number STC7555G Simon...
  3. Will get some photos of back section mounting later today. Simon...
  4. Hi There, Some notes on headlights including dim dip bypass relay. https://pellylandroverdefender.blogspot.com/p/headlights.html Simon...
  5. Some images which maybe helpful. Couple of things to note: 1. There is a removable plate on the underside which houses the fix nuts. 2. Our 110 is fitted with a "dog" guard hence another bracket topside with the thumb bolt on the top holding the guard - we do not own a dog. Just useful to stop stuff flying forward. In any case, as fitted, not able to fold the bench seats up. Would be interested to know how folk have theirs fitted to allow that. Suspect foldable in the sense you can do this via a spanner! LR workship link and image attached which may help too. https://www.lrworkshop.com/diagrams/land-rover-defender-seats/seating/rear-inward-facing_53667 Let me know if you need further images. Simon...
  6. There was a tyre review in October edition of LRM. Anybody got a set of Davanti Terratoura A/Ts? These seemed to come across well in the article. Just never heard of them before. That said, my experience of tyre choice is very limited. Simon...
  7. There are similar discussions on this thread along with some images which may be useful. https://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/105972-tyre-size-choice-23585-vs-25585/
  8. "Motorq" - Never come across those before. Will take a look. Hopefully going to tackle door this coming weekend.
  9. That makes sense. In no way did they look Torx headed. Will proceed as suggested. Many thanks, Simon...
  10. Hi Folks, What type of head/driver bit is required to undo the bolts holding the hinges on the rear door of a Defender? The bolts are described as "Torx" in the parts manuals yet there are only slots for 4 splines in the bolt head? All my current Torx bits have 6 splines in a star shape. It may go with a large pozi driver bit (it's not a great fit) and would rather use the correct type. Many Thanks, Simon...
  11. BTW - Thinking of using the unused oil over temperature warning LED as part of a low coolant warning device that building currently. Should really open up to have a look. However, in the meantime, anybody know how to hook up to that LED. Not able to recall how the LEDs are activated with respect to the connectors. Thanks, Simon...
  12. Some notes when fitting rev counter to my 110 300Tdi https://pellylandroverdefender.blogspot.com/p/autumn-2017.html?m=1 Simon...
  13. Hi Folks, Thanks for the comments. Looks like need to spend sometime taking things apart, cleaning and then "electrically" sealing. Simon...
