  1. Removed the indicator dash light and the problem is resolved. I've ordered one of the BoB modded ones so hopefully that resolves the issue. Cheers Western
  2. Hello, Setup: 1986 90 fitted with LED lights all round. RDX / Bolt on Bits adjustable relay Additional LED indicators at roof height at rear. Hazards working fine. All lights working Problem: Everything has been working OK. This weekend I was routinely checking the lights & noticed that when I indicate either left or right all the indicators come on - if I indicate left then the left indicators come on brightly but the right indicators come on too albeit dimmer. Still enough to be confusing to other motorists though. Same vice versa if I indicate to the right. The indicator lamp on the dash seems faint too whichever way I'm indicating. Does this sound like an earth issue somewhere? I've no idea where to start looking so any guidance much appreciated. Cheers, Paul
  3. I have one of Niges kits too & its bloomin' marvellous. Top work.
  4. I ummed and arred about this for ages. Bit the bullet and ordered Genuine, don't regret it for a second. A dream to fit compared to a mate who went for a cheap pattern part. He had to faff / swear / struggle for a few hours per door and his were a poor fit and he ended up replacing them in 6 months. Somethings are just worth paying for. I did both sides in about 15 mins. Do it right, do it once. Good luck
  5. Yup, already have LEDs on rear so have flasher relay in place. Any idea if 73mm lights are a straight swap size wise with Military ones?
  6. Hello again, I got massively distracted last time I was home and only had a quick look at the lights; I saw how they came out but didn't actually remove them. I'm toying with the idea of replacing them with standard style lamps but Wipac LED versions; I run lamp guards & the Wipac LED maps are waterproof to IP67 which should suffice for my offroading these days. Question is; once I have removed the original military lights, are the standard 73mm lights a straight swap. Also, any reason not to do this? Cheers, Paul
  7. Cheers qwakers, looks decent and a considerable saving on the Blue Sea one. Many thanks
  8. With regards switching the ignition live side with a relay, would this be suitable: http://www.vehicle-wiring-products.eu/product.php/648/high-current-relays (Durite 4 pin, 12v 100amp relay) Thanks, Paul
  9. Thanks for the replies. Mad-Pete, that's probably the way to go. miketomcat - the one I linked to has two separate bottom circuits thus allowing a permanent live block of 6 fuses and a switched ignition live block of 6 fuses ianmayco68 - Thats the one that I started looking at (was thinking 2x 6 fuse boxes; one permanent live and 1 ignition switched) but the one I linked to would allow me to contain everything in one box. Can I tap into any ignition live to activate the relay? Cheers, Paul
  10. Hello all, Whilst I am refurbishing the 90 I am looking to install a tidy solution to additional wiring circuits, with regards fusing them. Some additions will be on permanent lives; interior LED lights, stereo, amplifier whilst others will require ignition switched lives; heated seats, heated windscreen, lightbar. I'd like a solution that leaves me some leeway for future additions and came across the Blue Sea ST Blade Split Bus Fuse Block: https://www.bluesea.com/products/5032/ST_Blade_Split_Bus_Fuse_Block This would allow 2 isolated groups of 6 fused circuits to be contained in one housing ie, 1 for permanent live and 1 for ignition switched lives, giving 12 in total. I would be looking at mounting it on the central bulkhead behind the passenger seat to allow easy access (my seats don't have removable bases). What would be my best option to feed it a suitable ignition live ie where should I tap into? Thoughts, ideas, criticisms? Thanks in advance, Paul
  11. I'd be, you know, hypothetically keen too... Paul
  12. Good afternoon all, Having recently re-painted the 90 & decided to remove the A-bar (and its big Roolights - Lightforce copies) & I quite fancy an LED light bar. Now, I can't afford Lazer or suchlike & during my hours of browsing the interweb at work I came across this: http://www.grp4x4.com/products/parts-accessories/accessories/defender-54-night-hawke-led-bar-kit.html However, I can't find any information, besides what's on their website, nor any real world reviews. The price would be at the top end of what I am willing to pay. The vanity in me likes the look & the lumen output seems huge. Has anyone had any dealings with GRP4x4 - good or bad - that they would care to share? I'm sure people will have opinions on light bars & I'd be interested to hear peoples pros and cons of them, especially if anyone has one of the aformentioned ones from GRP4x4. Over to you good folk. Thanks in advance, Paul
  13. Excellent - hopefully these will be out easily when I get back from work. Thanks for your replies Paddy & Red90 Paul
  14. Planning to fit the variable speed intermittent wash wipe upgrade / modification to my 90, following the useful information in these threads: https://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/927-adding-intermittent-front-washwipe-to-older-9011/ https://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/20391-variable-intermittent-wipers/ At the moment the wash / wipe stalk on my ex-military 90 appears to have: push the button on the end: washers spray & give 4 wipes of the screen up 1: slow up 2: fast If I press it down it does nothing at all, except returns to the off position - what is it supposed to do? Will I need to replace the stalk as part of the intermittent wash wipe upgrade? (I know I need the Autosparks loom & the relay) When the intermittent system is installed what position on the wash wipe stalk is intermittent supposed to be at? Is there a facility to just do a single 'one off' wipe? - this is what I thought pushing my stalk should be doing Ta, Paul
