  1. Hi folks, having to lean on the brain trust for this one, I'm looking to identify the red circled terminals, I've worked out the small terminals are Standard power timer terminals, but I can't for the life of me track down the larger female blade type ones, anyone have any pointers at all? Cheers Mav

    R380 oil

    I'd agree with snagger regarding r380 performance on mtf. I find it's much more available now than it used to be. Just try each and see what you think.

    Replacement doors review

    Certainly have a look at it, the actual size and fit of the doors seemed fine, just the outer skin finish was a bit rough, certainly no way ready to paint off the bat with mine, but depends on what you're looking for I guess.

    Replacement doors review

    Just thought I'd do a quick review of SP 4x4's galvy doors. 2004 td5 D90 doors rotten through everywhere other than that a non tampered with basic truck. So I ordered the galvanised frame with steel epctroplated steel skins option 2x front doors which came in at just under a 1k including shipping... not exactly cheap, but thought it would be an "investment". I'd read various reviews about them which I found where generally true as per below. Doors appeared reasonably well packed up but had suffered a couple of bent corners in transit. Galvy frames had had some work to clear up from the galvanizing process but only basic, all holes and threaded holes needed drilling and tapping, as well as some filling around the door catch area to allow the pin and catch to fit. All the corners of the skin where pretty sharp and from the crimping process and needed some work to reshape and round off. Then there was subtle hammer marks in the outside of the panel from where the panel had been crimped onto the frame, I didn't like this so much so I gave both do is a skim with fine stopper to try even out the marks which worked after a fashion. Painted up relatively easily and re fitting the internals there was some small variance in the interior frame dimensions but nothing that stopped fitting of parts. On final fit up to the vehicle I've got to say I was quite shocked as they latched up to the original position of the door latch and where a perfect fit no shimming of hinges or anything. Big sigh of relief... all in all they're a little rough around the edges needing some time to prep but they look like they'll last... and couldn't quite get the hammer marks out the skin but it's not so noticeable on a 15yr old truck anyway... andif you anted to apply more filler you could, I just wanted to minimise that.

    Door fitting alignment

    Just done a set of doors myself, the originals had a number of the plastic gasket type things packed under the hinges on the door part to obviously align the door up, go for it.
  7. Hi folks, looking for potential supplier of this wee thing, has anyone ever come across it before... it comes in a couple of parts, namely it has a front cowling that comes off, which seems to make it slightly different than anything else I've seen on the market... Anyone any ideas of supplier? Mav

    If you're welding why not just weld a patch over it?

    Invisible Defender

    Funny you talk about yellow trucks, I swore the Camel Disco has some kind of car magnet, number of time I got cut up in that thing and just generally had people drive at me... pretty demoralising really.
