    Removal side waffle holders

    There are several captive nut plates in land rovers. rear hinges, striker plates etc. The other option is one bit of 6mm+ plate with a hole drilled and tapped then. A second plate then sealed and fixed over the hole. You can then either Rivet, bolt, screw or glue the whole thing in place. Mike

    Removal side waffle holders

    Rivet a flat plate on the inside with blind tapped holes in it don't forget some sealer. Then all you would have on the outside is some holes which you could leave open or put some short mushroom heads in. This would allow you the bolt your brackets back on whenever you want. Mike

    Defender two piece doors seal

    Yours are series door tops not early 110/military. The early 110 type have the split between the windows at an angle. I have some rubbers that came with mine that don't fit (mines an early 110) so I'd say they are different. Mike

    Engine Saver Low Coolant Alarm

    TSD has a low coolant alarm on his ibex using if I remember correctly a range rover classic header tank and factory coolant alarm cap. I have got a cap to do the mod on mine at some point.

    ibex 300 build

    It is a big relief to finally get there iits taken 5 years and 4 months from start to road legal and cost in the region of 15k (which is cheap for an ibex, the kit would of cost nearly 12k from memory). Still to do though is. Wire the winch. Fit a stereo. CB. Snorkel. Split charge. Mike

    I've ordered online so no issue but I was sent a certificate that authorizes plates to be made. Mike

    Heavy towing

    Sounds normal to me I also tow heavy loads with an older vehicle. My gearbox does get quite hot. The engine fan is electric and manually switched if I don't keep an eye on it it will creep past 3/4 on the temp gauge but flick the fan on and it starts coming down. Mike

    I've had several dumb questions but no still waiting. It would appear even though you have to give both a phone number and email they can only contact you via post which takes a week each time. I've even replied to their question via email and they still posted the second set of questions. I may well complain about the whole process once I get my registration as it's a mess from start to finish. Mike
