  1. Hi, will be at the workshop Monday and will measure it. it has two spacers on the rear bump stops, not sure if that’s ok as I still haven’t finished yet !! in fact I finally finished the engine about three days ago !! It’s only been six years !!! hopefully I’ve attached a photo of the boxed in areas Andy
  2. Brilliant! Thanks a lot. That is very helpful cheers !!
  3. Hi all. I’m wondering if anyone can help me. I am getting very close to finishing my disco rebuild project. Am having a few ‘mopping up’ problems. The whole alarm/central locking/immobiliser system has had me going for a while now. Ive had the green box and two remotes rebuilt (re-synced?) and is now working as it should but now the sounder isn’t working correctly. If I activate the alarm you can hear the sounder trying to work but very very quietly ! ive bought another from eBay but it is rubbish and makes no sound at all. so, is there a way of fitting a different alarm sounde
  4. hiya guys, sorry for not getting back. The guy I was using shut up shop. I should have said, sorry I think they do exist else where, possibly a VAG item. Oh, my truck still isn't finished yet !!!
  5. Incase it helps any one else on here Ive had a little success !! I have found and ordered this https://www.falon-nameplates.co.uk/productdetails/54/LandRover-10Percentoff-SmallCastAluminiumLandRoverOval It should fit exactly (maybe a little fettling !!) and it is cast so shouldn't have any heat issues. Also the side oval badge on a freelander (DAG100260) is only 71mm long so should also fit. Anyway will let you all know if the cast one is ok when it turns up Andy
  6. Thanks for looking, I will have a rummage through my spares as I have a couple of those sound deadening rubbers somewhere. the item I’ve seen on eBay is only £29.00 ( only lol ) but the shipping is £50.00 !!! But it is cast alloy so would withstand the heat. thanks for trying though. andy
  7. Hi guys, im after a Landrover oval badge that is 75mm along its long side. it’s to go in the oval blank on my 300tdi inlet manifold.. silver letters on a black background would be ideal ive looked on eBay and google and have only found a cast jobbie, it is the right size but is only made in the USA and the shipping is ridiculous cheers andy
  8. I used to have 4 KC daylighters on a roof bar only disco. I converted them to HID and I thought they were very good ( nearly said brilliant!!) Used 55W micro ballasts and fitted them into the shell of each light ( ment they were self contained and only needed a +ve 12v and earth out of each one) There are loads of spares available for them I tried a combination of different lenses think I finished up with a pair of medium floods in the center and a pair of floods on the outside pair. the long range lenses were like pencil spots and too tight for me. Very tough old l
  9. Right, just to finish this one off ive finally fitted the front spacer, will get round to the rear one another time. Thought I would post ups few pics. Decided on making proper gaskets rather than sealant (I need four !!) And here it is all bolted up, I had to order 5mm longer bolts so that delayed me a bit but I am really pleased. It fits perfectly, does exactly what its supposed to. Thanks very much Ross Oh and Ive fitted the stainless swivel seal holders as well but no one wants to see yet another swivel set up I guess ?? Right
  10. hopefully week after next, its a beautiful job. Its almost a shame to cover them up...
  11. So, dragging this thread back from the depths, these arrived today. ( thank you Ross) would love to rush to the workshop and fit them but I’m only home for a couple of hours before I’m off again. Will fit them hopefully week after next. And be a little bit closer to getting my landrover back on the road !!
  12. Im thinking a 5mm (ish) spacer and redo the airline holder on the right side of the crown wheel and Im golden ! Im not home long enough to get to the workshop for at least two weeks though......
  13. Just to say, Im not being rude ! I just haven't had a chance to get back to the workshop yet as im still away on work. Andy
  14. Ummmm, sort of !! I had the axles media blasted before i welded on the rings i then resprayed them with RCP and CIO from Buzzweld but my masking sucked and I got paint on the surfaces so sanded them clean with an old flap wheel. but it is smooth just a weird light thing...
  15. I will have a look when i get back next week, cheers
