  1. Ha! Apparently a lot of quads turn up nearer the time.
  2. I cut some large cut out on mine to make starter and steering box hoses easier to change. had no problem. Cut outs were only 6 x 4 or so.
  3. Hi Daan, not sure if you remember me ( we met in wales years ago)! I am also off to Croatia but on my Quad this year. Trophy class also so if you see us give us a push See you there and come say hi!
  4. as above go gwyn but souce your own drop arm. i might have one, but would need to check.
  5. i found a smaller steering wheel much better in my truck, especially after i changed the seat (which actually gave me less room). The best mod i did however was remove the whole seat tub and fitted a flat floor with my own seat rails. The gave me a lot more room as i postiioned it to fit my build. I also then had storage under both seats which fitted water proof boxes. thanks
  6. Yes of course you can. I end up doing this a lot.
  7. People say good things about the Prime Tech cheapie RTT but I have owned one and can say they do sweat inside. On a rainy weekend if you lift the mattress it will be wet under there. You need to go Howling or maybe ARB if anyone has any experiences with them?
  8. Anyone got an oil pressure gauge in Farnham / Surrey and fancy looking tomorrow morning
  9. Thanks Guys and thanks Tetsu0san, I will check all of the above and report back either way
  10. ok ill change pressure release valve. thanks. Rad is in the back now. why can you cut the oil cooler out of it?
  11. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Landrover-oil-cooler-defender-110-v8-/321290927786?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4ace6e7eaa#ht_82wt_1255 would this fit the ends of my 300tdi oil cooler pipes? my rad is in the back now see.
  12. It's definitely higher as I replaced hoses . a pressure relief valve holds pressure with a spring so if all fails it should lose pressure not build right?
  13. Hi Guys, I have a problem with my 300tdi engine - 120k miles. i have an aftermarket oil cooler and pipes which has worked fine for 2 years however now its building lots of pressure and blowing the ends off. couple of points to note: the oil cooler is not blocked the pressure is high in both return and flow pipe i have changed the oil filter Any ideas why this is happening? - i dont have an oil pressure gauge but i know the flow never used to swell the pipes like that...there must be some reason why the pressure is higher... Any ideas as im really stuck on this one. thank you
  14. Hi guys just reading this post. Careful of Guildford area also. I drove past a land rover which i do almost everyday early evening. I had a feeling the two guys leaning in werent supposed to be there so turned around and pulled up along side. As soon as i got out of my car they retracted pretty quickly and started walking fast to their car parked behind leaving the defender doors open. I walked to their car, following them 'to get a better look' but then turned as they drive off and got to the otherside of my car incase they pushed through me. I looked at the landy and they had made fast w
  15. Don't get me wrong my truck has challenge front and rear wings / hydro winch arbs / simex etc but we have modded it in a way that it does not damage the look of the car after a challenge and is still road legal. I often find doing class 3 in the challenge scene allows you to compete at this level... I.e drive home after. I have won a handful of events like this as you can pick and choose punches. Prob is there is usually only 5 or 6 trucks in this class which is boring. Let me know if someone organises one ... I'm on surreyoffroaders.co.uk. Cheers
  16. Hi Si, i think a road legal no trailers allowed event would be good Mark and i did all the awdc howling wolf events like that and we had great fun keeping the truck in one piece. Only had one AA truck trip home after the head went 50miles in to the 190 mile trip back
  17. Anyone going on Sunday to Slindon play day We have three trucks from Surrey heading down there. thanks
  18. i havent serviced my saley hydro winch since i have had it. in terms of setting up its really not difficult.
  19. Can someone tell me the length of a defender and discovery strengthened front steering arm please? The one from the steering drop arm. I bought what I thought is a disco one to do the drop arm Conversion but it looks small? Thanks in advance
  20. Www.blacksheepoffroad.co.uk make them for under a hard top
  21. yeah was a really good event, just got back from thailand as flew out that evening. We had some troubles to over come. first i ripped the front brake lines out within 5 mins. second was we got 21 punches but my co driver was not stamping them hard enough ......doh! (mind you seeing the above means it would not have mattered either way, so i wont fire him feedback is really good event and enough to keep you busy all day but at the same time nothing too silly. one point i would have is with being in the lower class with no rear winch can we add some really deep bogs runs where you dont need
