  1. Yes....hadn't clicked his link to see it was what I posted
  2. Like you I tend to buy them broken so they are cheaper šŸ˜€
  3. Agreed. Nothing illegal about fitting one either General requirements It is not illegal for vehicles to be fitted with bull bars, although the department would not recommend their fitment unless it has been shown, through compliance with specified safety standards, that they do not pose an additional risk of injury to pedestrians or other vulnerable road users. There are no plans for legislation to require bull bars that are already fitted to be removed. However, since 25 May 2007, it has been an offence for bull bars that have not been approved as compliant with those safety standards to be sold. Approved devices will carry an indelible ā€˜eā€™ mark (for example: e1 01 1471).
  4. Too much shiny glass and that colour is awful in the right colour though I think it will look good. Give it another 10 years before I can afford one!
  5. Really hope it does not look as bad as that. Was banking on this new one driving the price of L405's down!!
  6. Doug must have turned up in a different vehicle when he came to mine then - massive 2500 Cummins Dodge Ram!
  7. By the red colour and the location of the leak I would be pretty confident it is a power steering leak. They don't just normally dump all the fluid like that though. That level of leak should be pretty easy to identify - the reservoir is a black pot with 'zf' on the cap, check this for splits/the pipe not being connected properly to it, trace that down to the steering box to see if you have a leak there (normally just a drip off the end of the arm), follow the pipes across the front crossmember on the inside to the pump on the right hand side checking for wet pipes as you go, although the leak does look on the left. Had it been dripping before? A visual inspect of what components are wet will help diagnose
  8. This other thread may be of interest if you want to create some space for those new gauges
  9. Mine is a 200tdi but that will make no difference, the connector is the same on a TD5. you will still need to run a feed to the halo either from the sidelight or a perm feed which is what I did https://defenderupgrades.co.uk/product/land-rover-defender-7-wipac-led-head-lamp-with-halo/
  10. I have the Wipac LED ones and am really pleased with them
  11. I love mine - one of the best tools I have ever bought. Attached to the little battery impact wrench and you can get in prop off easily in a couple of minutes. Well worth having to turn the prop a bit to get access
  12. Does it turn over/start? Where or what was on fire?
  13. Good luck getting it sorted - on the plus side you seem to have put the fire out and terminal failure always makes it easier to find the problem!
  14. Forgetting the price for now. I don't mind the fake chequer plate on the bonnet/wing tops too much but it looks awful in front of each wheel!
  15. forget that! I want to see them painted and under the Lightweight!
  16. Is there a link to the old thread? I am sure i have seen it at some point
  17. So much thought has gone into that, I think it is great! Ford really seem to be on the ball at the moment and listening to what people want as opposed to just doing what they think people want. The Bronco is another great example and the latest F150 has a load of really cleverly thought out features too. Just a pity none of those cars will ever come here. Hopefully the new Ranger will pick up on some of those design points - the new one certainly looks like it will be interesting, especially if they let us have the 2.7 V6 Ecoboost petrol over here https://www.carsguide.com.au/car-news/2022-ford-ranger-what-we-know-so-far-about-the-new-toyota-hilux-rival-and-volkswagen-amarok

Not sure if voltage the same?
  19. your issue is almost certainly how is it registered, if it is registered as 'Light 4x4/Utility' (wording similar at least) they think it is a commercial and not a car. I would get in touch with them ASAP and take pictures to send to them to prove it is a car - assuming it is a station wagon of course
