  1. Will the truck cap from a Defender fit a late (1982) Series lll?
  2. Thanks for your comments and encouragement. Any pictures of these shortened tubs would be appreciated. I picked up the tub yesterday along with a new tailgate. The 90 needs a new rear cross member. I wonder if a td5 cross member would work and then I could change the fuel tank location and use the tub's filler cut out. Or... replace the rear part of the frame and keep a bit of length to cheat it up to a 100"? Would need a new driveshaft... Cheers C
  3. I have a 1984 Land Rover 90 parts car that could be built into a 90 beach runner. I have a lot of spares and after a rear cross member repair, it looks really do-able. However, I need a rear tub. I can get a 110 tub from a two door relatively cheaply. Has anyone ever cut one down to fit a 90? I have seen the video of Mark Evans fabbing the tub for his 100", and if a 90 tub was available in good shape I would go that way, but a 110 tub is all that seems to be available on this side of the Atlantic. Any thoughts?
  4. Thanks. For the info. I have a 90 parts truck which might be good enough to rebuild. Looking at options.

  6. Will the fenders (wings) and pick up cab from a 1981 V8 fit a 1984 90? Thanks
  7. Alcohol will work for the whiteboard marker. Don't use anything harsh or anything that will abrade the surface or it will be really hard to clean next time. On a positive note, bathroom 'Barker Board" makes a really inexpensive whiteboard that you can laminate onto a piece of plywood if you need something more rigid. I made whiteboards for my classroom this way ages ago before they were common. C
  8. Will an injection pump from a 200tdi Discovery engine work on a 200tdi with the Defender timing chest added (for a Defender)? I have the inlet and exhaust manifolds, and turbo. Thanks
  9. Would a 200tdi turbo from a Discovery fit on a defender manifold? Would assume that there would need to be a bespoke exhaust pipe connected. Are these turbos rebuildable? C
  10. I have to feel sorry for the poor lads that were in my Defender 110 whilst it was at BATUS in Alberta, Canada! It is nowhere close to being winterized. It is LHD. Manual LHD.
  11. What year were rear drum brakes replaced with disc brakes on 90's? Cheers, C
  12. For what its worth, my 110 came with a bonnet mounted spare, but I found that it restricted my vision when offroad. I purchased a Mantec rear carrier and appreciate getting the tire out of my vision and it is a bit easier to wrangle than when it was on the bonnet. I also like being able to fully open the bonnet when working on the engine, something not possible with the tire there. I think that with the Mantec I will be able to run a canvas top with a half side hinge rear door. All of the mountings are on the lower 'half' of the truck bed. On the roof...may be easy now, but what abou
  13. I used PVC pipe. 2.5" with the rubber flexible connectors for maintenance, filter change, etc. Rigid, tough and cheap.
