    What axle innards does the 70th Anni Defender use?

    Hmm. Yes you can catch the boxes out a little but but I didn't find the ZF 6hp26 in my TDV8 as bad as you describe. It did have a tendency to pull off in second or third but my route home cuts across a busy dual carriageway (Hogsback) and I found if you hold the brake and a little bit of revs it simply took off like a rocket with you released the brake. If you wanted a stupidly fast response whack it into manual mode and select first and do the same thing. The way I found you could catch it out was if you were braking heavily and then stood on the accelerator. In general things were pretty good in normal mode, if you put it into 'sport' then even using it as a normal auto you didn't really feel any delay. Manual mode meant you had complete control then and even less delay when it was perceptible. Maybe it's because it's a 6 speed it doesn't have as many to choose from

    You'd have thought a petrol V8 through an auto box would be a lot gentler on the drive train than a typical inexperienced Defender driver with a manual, heavy boot and relatively big diesel lump. I guess they can also map the engine to minimise lumpy torque which is going to hit the drive train hard.

    The dreaded SS Exhaust subject

    Anyone considered / tried building one themselves using the 'kits' off eBay? I.e. the ones where you can just buy a load of angles and straight bits and weld them together. My exhaust is actually in pretty decent nick apart from the rear section on the 110 which I've had a number of different manufacturers on recently and they keep disappearing (to rust). Given I've got a TIG and a load of stainless filler rods I was thinking perhaps DIY stainless might be the way to go in the future.

    custom dash project

    Probably not torquey enough.

    Pillar drill old or new?

    You can just about see it as a paint brush holder on the right of this picture.

    Pillar drill old or new?

    If you're still after one then I've got a big floor standing pillar drill that's minus a motor you can probably have? Startrite I think - I got it off ejparrot but there was a three phase motor on it which has subsequently been repurposed at my parents.

    wiper wheel box

    If you know where they are then that would save me several hours of searching / tidying through the shed...

    Pillar drill old or new?

    Gonna have to clear some space. Also got a donkey saw for not very much.

    Pillar drill old or new?

    Hmm. Just done a deal on 3 Elliotts for £150 . They're all part of a bit T slot table. All working but middle one needs a little attention.

    wiper wheel box

    I'll have a hunt over the weekend if not sooner. I think I might have lopped off the end because I couldn't be ****ed to pull off the old spindles. For what's its worth it's just a cog...

    wiper wheel box

    Which bit of the wheel box - the little bits that clamp to the spindle and take the cable drive? I don't think I threw out the knackered ones when I replaced them on my 300 but the challenge will be finding them... It's only a small shed but it's got a lot of stuff. But I do need to clear it out because I've just done a deal on a donkey saw and 3 Elliott pillar drills on a T-slot table so need to find some space for them...

    Disco 3 electric seats

    What age seats and vehicle? I've fitted a set of L322 seats to my Defender and they're self contained. Just gave them 12V and everything just worked, although I think the memory function has stopped working.
