  1. thanks for the link, so out of interest is this an auto-industry set standard/rate for the safety margin percentage? Also is a voltage stabilizer needed?
  2. Hi does anyone know what the fuse ratings need to be for the queried ??? as indicated in the wiring loom shown below? Also are the other shown rated fuses correct? Cheers All Rich
  3. Hi All. just would like some clarification on the wiring up of the ignition switch I have for my motor. The switch is a standard Landy Series 2a & 3 Petrol Ignition Switch and Keys, Part No. 551508 which is labeled up as BAT, IGN, ST & ACC. , where as I have a diagram showing connections 1,2,3 & 4? So could anyone point me in the right direction of connecting it up so I don't cause any damage? (Want to check wiring setup as I don't want to be doing any frying!!,,lol or NOT) SO IS THIS RIGHT? 1= BAT, (To Battery/ Solenoid for starter motor via fuse box, fuse ampage??) 2=IGN (To Ignition side of fuse box fuse ampage??, then alternator) 3=ST(Solenoid for starter motor) 4=ACC (Accessories???) what usually gets connected to this please? Cheers Rich
  4. Seat Box Height OK, may be a different question to normal, but could someone give me the height of the seat box out of a series 2a / defender? I've done away with seat box in mine and put in a flat floor right the way across the drivers & passengers floors. So by having this height I'll have the approx. seat height somewhere near to start with, then I can adjust accordingly to suit.
  5. Is the centre of the gearbox tunnel on the same centre line as the dashboard/windscreen centre line, as on mine they are not both on the same centre line, Also as badger110 mentioned I'd keep them both separate to each other cause on future add-ons or mod's it will be a lot easier Here's how mine is progressing
  6. Hi Ian, regarding your electrical fuse/relays box ideas; I've just come across this on Amazon and thought I’d just put out there as an alternative. idea. DEDC Automotive Car Fuse Relay Box 12V Holder https://www.amazon.co.uk/DEDC-Automotive-Metallic-Terminals-Holding/dp/B0787VG3WM/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1_sspa?keywords=DEDC+Automotive+Car+Fuse+Relay+Box+12V+Holder&qid=1557846702&quartzVehicle=21-320&replacementKeywords=dedc+automotive+car+fuse+box+12v+holder&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull-spons&psc=1
  7. Cheers Mike had a quick look, https://www.wickes.co.uk/Proplex-Black-Surface-Protection-Sheet---2mm-x-1-2m-x-2-4m/p/118670 not really what I'm looking for, but now in my head ready for any future projects Cheers Rich
  8. PUBLIC NOTICE (LOL) I just noticed looking through the topic that Steve had made up a card template for his custom dash, I've been looking around the interweb for card to make such templates out of, but have drawn a blank so far, so does anyone know a contact or website where I can purchase some firm card, say 500mm x 1000mm or so, to make up templates, the alternative is to pop along to Lidi (Other supermarkets also apply) and buy 10 boxes of cereal just for the card, but I don't thing even my wife is that tolerant when it comes to spending out on project SHY lol.

  9. " I’ve got a lot of ideas whizzing round my head and it’s easy to get side tracked from one part to another and end up getting nowhere" Totally with you there, I've started on the centre dash and I've already changed mine 4-times , and I thought I was happy with the set up I'm currently at, but there's always another way of adding something that's slightly different. I'm making mine out of 12mm ply for now and then maybe make it out of ali-sheet once all's well.
  10. Hi I see what you mean using either of the two fuse boxes you've pictured, they are a lot more cleaner and tidier having the printed circuit boards, so long as you can get it to work without having the ECU your on a winner. Did you manage to clamp down the two main bulkhead air vents? as I've also seen a few ideas off http://www.ministryofdefender.co.uk/ (they have brought out a Puma dashboard conversion kit and go through remodeling the dashboard area, there might be a few ideas there? All this time whilst thinking and building my replacement dash I never thought of taking out the "centre cross air flue" part of the dash to make more room, will have to have a recky to see what's what. Here's the fusebox I've put together, i'm making up a top cover that will hide and protect all the terminal connections, so all you'll see is just the fuse boxes. ( the fusebox will be mounted with fuses at the front for easy access, I'm going to mount the fusebox in the base of the centre console I'm working on. Rich
  11. Hi unsure if your aware that the Car Builder solution Company sell a 12 Circuit Wiring Module / Fuse Box for £112.80 + P&P, that's not too bad but there again that depends on your budget, how deep your pockets are, and whether or not you'd like to to build a purpose built unit that suits the need of your own Landy. https://www.carbuildersolutions.com/uk/cbs-12-circuit-wiring-module. As I'm slowly plodding along with my hybrid build, I decided to build my own "wiring module"/ fuse box set up. I was lucky to pick up a second hand "wiring module" off that well known auction site, it came with a wiring diagram, so I sat down and picked it apart to make up it's wiring circuit, to which I modified to suit the setup of my own project, Okay still a work in progress but won't take long to button it up and as my custom dash is not far off the complete wiring of the project will begin. Hope that's of some help to you all
  12. Found some Stainless Saddle Clamps on the Car Builder Solutions Website, www.carbuildersolutions.com/uk/stainless-saddle-clamps-6mm-pack-of-5 but look a bit thin for my liking?? Alternatively have found something similar in shape in one of the Land Rover Series Catalogues, "A fuel pipe line chassis saddle clamp clip, part no. 216708" that looks a lot more robusk and can be "modified" if needed. so I've ordered and now just have to wait and see.
  13. Hi All does anyone know if the cable clamp & securing bolt that hold the heater control fan cable in place on the Landy Series and earlier defenders is available to purchase on their own? Looking at the schematic drawing it's not listed as being a purchasable part? All advice and assistance greatly appreciated Cheers Rich.H
