  1. Hi all Does anyone have and advice to share regarding the best supplier for wiring harnesses please? My diesel S3 decided to attempt to spontaneously combust today. A tidy up of the wiring was on the cards - but now it’s a little more urgent and comprehensive than a ‘tidy’ 😬😬 there are a few on the market, if you’ve got any horror stories or recommendations/ they’d be really much appreciated. Photo: prior to trying to burn herself down. 👍
  2. Some pics below as promised. Im loving the look of her now. If anyone is looking for a Van body, gimme a shout!! Excited - I jumped in for a spin this evening and a few seconds after starting, loads of smoke!!! Not unusual! Lol- but this was coming from the wiring harness!!!! 😬 Quite strange as I used her Friday with no probs and today it was close to going up in flames. Another project on the old girl to add to the list!
  3. Loving the stories here. Soggy radios etc. Aldi sell packs of 10 square play mats made of a neoprene type material for a tenner a pack - so if i do get cold I might line it with them. I’ve had unlined roofs in pick ups before tho, yes you get dripped on, but that’s nothing compared to what flies through the holes in the floor.... 😂😂😂 I will get some pics and post them when it’s done. Thanks for all the support👍👍💪💪💪
  4. So - if ever the thought of ‘let’s glue carpet to the inside of the roof’ crosses your mind... please don’t.😂 Started preparations to convert my standard ‘van sided’ swb into a pick up this week by removing the old rubber backed 80’s nylon carpet from the roof and bulkhead that I’ve bought. The new window channel arrived today, so hopefully a week or two will see the job completed. 👍👍
  5. Thanks both. Really appreciate your time in helping out. 🤞🤞🤞 for a solution tomorrow. I’ll kerp you posted. 👍
  6. Exactly the same happened to me earlier this year - and interestingly - the reservoir failed in exactly the same place. I wonder if it’s UV breakdown with light coming through the bonnet gap? I was using the drivers side wheel for pressure. As I bent Down and connected the hose, the crack in the res squirted a jet of fresh brake fluid in my face. I already had an eye infection. So wasn’t best pleased.
  7. My alternator isn’t charging. I have no ignition light when engine is stopped and ignition is on. The ignition switch functions properly as in the fan etc. Gets its feed when it should. I’ve taken the plug off the back of the alternator. One of the thin leads had a constant 12v supply - even when the ignition was off. Is that right?? Im doing some checking before putting a new alternator on and blowing that up too. The vehicle is new to me, and I’ve found some horrors so an incorrectly connected wire would not be a surprise. Thanks in advance for any guidance. 👍👍
  8. Thanks Neil. I’ll pass this on.
  9. @smallfry hiya mate. I’m not sure, I haven’t seen it yet. I would imagine Carbs but I’ll check with my friend tomorrow at work. Thanks.
  10. Hi all, I’m a series Landy man (please forgive me!!) but an internet allergic friend of mine is looking for a pair of genuine exhaust manifolds for his mk1 Range Rover 3.5 V8 Could anyone tell us if they are standard Rover V8 manifolds or were they a special casting for the Range Rover. If you have a pair to sell, would love to hear from you. Many thanks. Rob.
