  1. Another thumbs up for a DIY approach - separate relays/fuses for each of the 4 lamp circuits. Here's some notes that may be useful. https://pellylandroverdefender.blogspot.com/p/headlights.html Simon...
  2. Hear you there...accountants to support the business, not define the product strategy. Occurs sadly in most engineering businesses...
  3. Loving the Lego version - must order one for me the kids at Christmas. It'll probably quite expensive for Genuine lego parts though. Perhaps there will also be a cheaper Britpart version.πŸ˜‰ Simon...
  4. Hey, There may be some useful pictures and links with respect to the 10AS on my blog. https://pellylandroverdefender.blogspot.com/p/autumn-2017.html Simon...
  5. That was kind of my thought. Will flush and replace. Thanks, Simon...
  6. Hi Folks, Wanted to check what might be the expected colour of the coolant in a Defender 300 Tdi engine. Attached are some images. Not immediately convinced this looks correct. Many Thanks, Simon...
  7. Hi Maverik, Just looking at your Landy avatar image. Nice looking winch/bumper/rad guard. What’s the setup? Simon...
  8. Thanks for all the images folks. IMHO - The sizing looks well balanced. Still deliberating. The size of the spare does look big. No wonder it's mounted on a swing away! Simon...
  9. Hi Folks, Planning on fitting some new Wolf rims on my 1997 Defender 110 300 Tdi Can't settle my mind as to whether go for 235/85 or 255/85 235/85 - Standard choice. The later defenders came issued with that choice. Loads of folk use this. No issues. 255/85 - Main attraction is diff higher off the ground without going too mad turning it into a meaner machine. That said, might need to do a 2" lift to ensure no rubbing on wheel arches on full articulation? My shocks/springs are 24 years old and may need replacing anyhow? Reading some folk suggest this option is also better for motorway driving? Less tyre choice. Less turning circle? Feels to me that 235/85 is the easy option. However, 255/85 does seem appealing. Note finding good example images of compares between the two. Anybody got a 255/85 on a 110 that could share an image? Might be deliberating this too much. Loosing sleep over this one. Simon...
  10. Hi There, Not much advice can give other than perhaps thoughts with respect to bulkhead? Does that need addressing, galvanising, etc... Also, a nice new "under carriage" might benefit from new exhaust? In any case, look forward to seeing progress. Not quite there myself, but know I'll likely be doing something similar in the future - probably when the kids have left home :-)
  11. Hi Folks, Can anybody make recommendations of where to go for tyre fitting in/or around Bristol? Looking to put some BFG AT T/A KO2s on some newly acquired Wolf rims πŸ™‚ Many Thanks, Simon...
  12. "but at the moment rain has stopped play" - Queue the water ingress threads πŸ™‚
  13. Putting tyre style to one side for a moment, what wheel mount are you using? Is that also a mount for Maxx Raxx bike rack? Looks like a nice setup.
  14. Yeah. Keen to go with black and hence the question for this thread. Have never noticed either some folk must have the white on the inside. Will pay more attention to other peep's tyres when raising a polite hand wave and passing Defenders in the future. Simon...
  15. Oh! Didn't realise that there was a white and black lettering side to each of the tyres. Their web page suggests white on both sides according to their graphical spin gadget https://www.bfgoodrich.co.uk/gb/ranges/4x4-Range/BFGoodrich-All-Terrain-T-A-sup-KO2-sup Simon...
