  1. Policw spec DC100 spotted in Spain!

    New Defender??? What new Defender???
  2. Are you doing all this because you're planning to drive it on salty winter roads? I've done that, and learned about how galvanising isn't the ultimate for that situation.
  3. I've never heard of anyone putting body filler on top of a galvanised surface. It takes a bit just to get paint to stick, so with filler . . . I don't know. Do you have any pictures?
  4. Policw spec DC100 spotted in Spain!

    I love these stories. What a world we've wound up with.
  5. Suffix B RR - Numbers check

    That sounds like a nice find! Do you have any photos?
  6. Policw spec DC100 spotted in Spain!

    Is it weird or brilliant that somebody took a press release and stole it for a toy design?
  7. That's a really good idea!
  8. Nice bit of detective work there. Have you gone to the police?
  9. I certainly wouldn't use anything like a grinder or a wire brush on Birmabright as it would gouge in a split second. You'll need some sort of paint stripper, and I'd ask a boatyard for advice since they would probably do this sort of thing a lot. Of course, I'm sure you realise that once the aluminium is stripped it will be exposed to air and will need some sort of protection or priming and so on and so forth.
  10. Oil and temperature safe hose

    I can only imagine how you found out Once you look into hose construction and the various layers used then it makes sense.
  11. As always Bowie, a thousand thank-yous for your quick response. I still can't figure out how to get to those bolts but you did solve the problem. It's a car I'm wrecking so it's only a rolling chassis and the transmission is ready to be pulled out, and I'd forgotten that I could leave the converter attached and (hopefully) catch the torrent of ATF it will let loose. So I'll just do that instead. Which is why I have an LT95 in my Range Rover.
  12. It seems to look like this one inside: https://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/95486-discovery-39-v8-torque-converter/
  13. Do you have to go through one of the four big holes in the drive plate, or through that little hole in the bottom of the bellhousing? Neither of which have enough room to swing a spanner . . . The last automatic I took apart had the driveplate-to-converter bolts connecting the two directly together, with the bolts around the outside and easy to get to. This thing has a spacer and another plate and various bolts. I have to admit I'm stumped with this one.
  14. RRC Rear Springs

    Sorry, my mistake, thinking about brackets and not struts.

    See my reply above referring to an EAS Rangie with a Boge mount on the chassis. But that factory always was pretty odd.
