    Old vice advice

    To be fair that is something I'm dreading ......

    Old vice advice

    I've over 70 vices (yeah sad I know) with a fair selection of those being quick release, some over 100 years old. Not come across a quick release vice half nut that ever needed more than a good clean to stop it slipping.

    Old vice advice

    The last one of those I just brazed back together and it's held fine, they break in that spot when they get bent if the vice is dropped. Well strictly speaking they tend to break when being straightened without heat. Is there nobody near you that can braze it up? Whereabouts in Kent?

    The "Pass the Bucket" 4x4 For Sale on Ebay Thread

    Perhaps you could convert it into a 2 door rrc?

    If it's a galaxy try shaking it when it's not focussing, I know it sounds silly but it works.

    DIY Snorkel

    Excellent, that's far better priced ducting than the silicon stuff that they wanted £30 for 50cm of!

    DIY Snorkel

    Cheers @dangerous doug, excellent idea to use a bit of silicon hose between the main snorkel and the wing, I hadn't thought of that. Have you used anything 'special' to keep the internal ducting in place? Or is it just cable tied to other things to stop it flopping around?

    DIY Snorkel

    My 110 has had a Mantec steel snorkel fitted since before I bought it, it's all rusty to the point that a hole has rusted clean through the mushroom top, it also has a hole in the flexible pipe that attaches to the wing. The internal piping in the engine bay is also not sealed very well so not really doing the job. The idea popped into my head after seeing the Protection and Performance snorkel ( https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LAND-ROVER-Defender-3-Snorkel-air-intake-top-fits-with-our-external-cage/162147951992 ) that I could knock one up from stainless exhaust pipe parts for a lot less than they want. This would also give me the opportunity to bin the existing side intake ducting with it's small air restriction. So I have a few questions, which no doubt some of you will have suffered the pains of researching previously. 1) Does anyone know of a supplier of suitable (reasonably priced) induction hose to connect the snorkel to the airbox? Needs an internal diameter of 76mm to connect to the airbox spigot and I'm guessing about 1m long. 2) What have people used as the snorkel top? 3) Anyone got a reasonably priced supplier of 76mm stainless exhaust bends and pipe parts? Thanks in advance for your help.

    The EBay Christ I fancy that 4x4 + its cheap thread

    Am I totally out of touch with prices now? But didn't that seem an awful lot of money for a s3?
