  1. Trickle charger while being stored

    I use this little rig: http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/battery-tender-junior-0-75a-maintainer-0111940p.html#srp It is fused and have not had any issues. Cheers, Colin
  2. 110 shocks

    The website indicated reads as being 'Retired'. I just retired...I hope I don't disappear! C
  3. Dave W. The rewiring of my lights came before I got it as I am the third owner after the MOD sold the truck. If you can easily find the diagram, I would appreciate it. My plan is to undo some of what was done and start fresh with relays for the headlights and to just use the steering column switch. Thanks, All!
  4. Thanks. This is helpful. Colin
  5. So would this mean that the wiring harness would be specific to the order or modified from the regular Defender loom? Thanks, Colin
  6. When Defenders are sent to the MOD are the convoy light selector switches put in after-market or directly from the factory? I have a 1995 ex MOD 110 that has had this switch removed and somewhat returned to normal. The headlights work from two console mounted switches added when the convoy light switch was removed. There are some issues. There are no parking lights by themselves, rather all lights come on with either of the two switches and the dash lights are wired in with one of these switches and not with their own switch or rheostat. The headlightlight switches are the leftmost upper and lower in the photo. So back to my original question... Were these trucks built with the convoy light switch at the factory or was it a normal Defender and the convoy light switch was added afterward? There are parts of the main harness that are still functional as I was able to get a stalk mounted headlight switch to plug in and turn on the headlights (still with headlights in both the first and second positions). The answer to this will hopefully shed some light on which wiring diagram I should be looking at. (Whomever did the conversion used red and white wiring...) Thanks, Colin

  8. Waxing Lyrical

    Do you have Rust Check in the UK? For my 110, the MOD solution was to paint, then repaint, then repaint the chassis in black. I have spent a great deal of time peeling and pressure washing the paint that will come off (as it wasn't well adhered in the first place). I am having it sprayed with Rust Check on a yearly basis. This is the same product that I use on the daily driver with good result. Cost is less than $100 per year. Cheers, Colin
  9. Performance Cylinder Head

    Hmmm...I wonder if I should do this with my 2.5 N/A? Nah...68hp is heaps! Cheers, Colin
  10. EX MOD Defender 110 Cake

    https://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/101076-retirement-cake/ I posted this on the Defender Forum, but thought that some folks here might appreciate this also. I am blown away by the detail...right down to the side fuel lockers. Cheers, Colin
  11. Driving lights

    TIAB, I was searching 'driving lights' and I found this post. On my Jeep JK I have Quadratec LED headlights and on my 110 I have LED replacement bulbs.The lights on the Jeep are very bright, especially on high beam. The LED's on the 110 are quite bright, but suffer a bit through the Hella glass. I have placed an LED 20"light bar on the front bumper of the 110, but have not had it in the woods yet. C
  12. Retirement Cake!

    I am retiring in a few weeks. I am looking forward to having time to get my 110 Defender back on the road and using it to explore the back roads and trails of Nova Scotia. I was completely gobsmacked when my wife came out with this cake! It took about 7 hours to make and is about 18" long and 10" high. The canoe mirrors a cedar strip that I built that will look great on the truck's roof. The details are amazing. Nice bow wave!! The cake was tasty too!! Cheers, C
  13. EX MILITARY 110 2.5 N/A TRUCK CAB-PRICE?

    Denz1l, Where are you located approximately? What prices one pays in England make those of us in North America quite envious. Pictures help also. Welcome to the forum. It is a great place to learn. C
  14. Engine Oil for Defender 2.5 N/A

    Phil, My 1995 ex MOD 2.5 n/a 110 is a Defender...says so right on the front. Cheers, Colin
