Watched a few videos and they have been known to shoot out and go flying
  4. I would try Leeds Caravan centre, had a few bits from there for my hobby. Seitz are one make for blinds If it heiki could use standard window catches Also would get some security as like defenders they like to be stolen.
  5. What is to stop someone getting a richards/marsland galvanised chassis, galvanised bulkhead, a crate engine/gearbox. fibreglass pannals and going to get a iva/sva or whatever they call it and getting it registered?
  6. After the theft of my dads 90, what's best security to get will be another 300tdi without air con, on the list is X engine steering column thing, Ether a ardcase or x defend pedal lock options please Also was reading that they are now putting mobile trackers GPS on is it worth wiring a blocker on? Also what trackers are any good that doesn't use GPS that can be blocked? Thanks for the help in advance

    I got a 200tdi Disco engine in my 90, earlier this morning the car got a bit sluggish, then started making a noise (like from a compressor when disconnect a tool hissing) checked and it had blown bottom intercooler hose off, so put it back on tonight, was fine for about a mile, then all of a sudden a big woosh and now its blowing from the back of the cylinder head, could it be that the waste gate has seized shut and the excessive pressure has made it go ? anything to look out for when I have stripped it down ? cheers phil
  10. which is deep bronze green , I painted my 90 this summer, got some spare but not sure which green it is, not sure how to upload a pic, phil
  11. mine went at 74k, cracked head
  12. So what are the solid red wires they was two, also have got 2 spare white wires
  13. Right wired in warning panel everything worked ok till I tried to start it glow plug light was on soon as key is pos 1 turned it so glow plug was on it went dull and started smoking but they was 2 yellow black off same one , also two red ones which are sidelight, which I joined to same one are the glow plugs earth and positive that's why it smoked cheers
  14. Have you already got a base down? If not how about putting 100mm rigid insualation then concreting over the top, gives a nice sturdy base too.
