    So where have I gone wrong?

    an alternative would be to get a local machine shop to make a spacer for you that is the same length as the crushed collapsible sleeve

    Front Calipers

    Back to the original photos of the calipers. Whereabouts are the bleed nipples on said calipers? Mine is a 1984 One_Ten. Originally fitted with solid discs. I managed to find a set of the spacers which go between the two halves of the caliper, fitted them and then fitted vented discs. During the intervening years I have changed hubs, stub axles and fitted a 300 Tdi front axle case. As it is now, it has the earlier BIG CV joints and early hubs/stubs etc. Point is, I don't think your calipers are 110 calipers.

    Roof Leaking?

    I had all sorts of leaks on my roof where the original factory sealant had failed. Used this and no subsequent leaks over the last 5 years. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/POLYURETHANE-CAR-BODY-PANEL-BODY-KIT-ADHESIVE-BONDING-SPOILER-T4-T5-SEALER-/371758495595?var=&hash=item952ec50529&redirect=mobile It is thinner than silicone sealant and can be brushed into gaps

    Military color codes

    It is entirely possible that there is/was a standard NATO range of colours.

    Military color codes

    Oddly enough the colours used by the British are all British standard colours. Things like bronze green, NATO green, Matt stone, fire engine red. Possibly, if the vehicles were painted before leaving the factory, at least one of them could be a BS colour. https://www.paragonpaints.co.uk/BS381C-Colours.html https://www.militaryvehiclepaint.co.uk/index.php https://paintman.co.uk/product-category/coach-enamel-paint/british-standard-colours/

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    As a former colleague opined many years ago. Cars are no longer marketed or advertised as transport. They are more like jewellery. When did you last see an advert for a car which mentioned things like the engine, gearbox, fuel economy, carrying capacity or anything remotely practical? More typically the adverts depict the car as a lifestyle accessory, possibly mentioning the onboard camera, the infotainment system and pretty much bugger all else

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    Difference being if you break a leaf spring it is possible to carry out a repair that will get you home. Break a coil and repair is not a possibility. I remember reading in an old magazine about a temporary fix of a leaf spring still being in place a year later and the vehicle still being in daily use.

    A cautionary tale

    If you are that upset about it, return the head and request a refund.
