  1. Yes as true Land Rover fans we are, can it be easily loaded onto a flat bed when broken down, is it easy to work on on the hard shoulder and how easily can I strip out major drive train items in said location else it’s not a defender 🙂🙂 🙂
  2. But this is a pure talk about it thread. 🙂 I appreciate its not a significant value add mod but if it’s spending 10k on a 5k base to vehicle to make it worth 6k that’s a factor. I appreciate it should be primarily a labour of love.
  3. So chassis £1500 custom softtop and cage £2000 iva tests £1500 rear seats £1000 custom tub fabrication and paint £1000 swap bits over and find broken things £1000 Air suspension £2000 hmm £10,000 pounds. How much is a 100 inch worth ?
  4. This was the chassis I was thinking of. https://www.landyzone.co.uk/land-rover/galvanised-land-rover-100-defender-chassis-custom-richards-chassis.310674/
  5. I hear it various ways of yes/no/depends on the examiner but putting the Iva aside if it’s 100 inch defender chassis don’t most things bolt on at this point with a 10 inch gap behind the bulkhead and rear bed?
  6. I’m wondering what difference a specifically built chassis makes. I e watched some of a 4x4 is born. That looks complicated but with an actual defender 100 inch chassis is it easier? As this is my imaginary 100 inch build it would need seats in the back.
  7. So I was out at the weekend and saw a defender that if I had unlimited time and money is pretty much what mine would end up as. 100 inch auto, air suspension, soft top with forward facing rear seats. so I was musing what does it take to go to 100 inches from a 90? And this is speculation only. So richard chassis 100 inch, take the panels engine front off mine (90) extend propshaft, brake lines, electrics, exhaust , custom cage, custom hood. Get rear seats in. Some sort of trival paperwork for dvla and a solve for extra 10 inches rear tub and your done aren’t you? Weekend, maybe two ? 🙂
  8. Went to Simply Land Rover yesterday. Saw some nice 100 inch defenders and others. Seemed a bit quiet this year but maybe that’s because I came later and did less. Anyone else go down?
  9. I’d do mine if it was affordable enough. Orange 90 defender in the charge spots at car parks. 🙂
  10. I’ll leave at the front for now I think. I would think I could shorten the loom if I needed to move them back later. Anyone know the the leads I need ? I think Nige is still catching up from holiday I couldn’t get hold of him to see what leads he is selling. Also need a decent run cable route from behind the seat into the engine bay.
  11. Thinking about moving the coil packs to the back of the engine but I do have dreams of squeezing a v8 110 air box in there. I see a lot of people running at the front but Land Rover went with the back didn’t they ?
  12. MS3 to drive without edis needs a different input voltage. Looks like the megasquirt v8 shop lists them as VWs Audi Skodas etc P/Ns : 032905106E 032905106B etc and some brackets and leads maybe I’m going shopping when it re opens Monday. 🙂
  13. Seems I would need to swap to VW coils and leads to get s 5v input. Anyone know what the part numbers are for the VW coils and leads please?
  14. Got through but the factory has been a pickle for them I think I will try LaSalle
  15. It’s not like you don’t get at least one wheel on the ground and as long as it goes round I think you are literally good to go. 🙂
