  1. yeah gave him a shout to say glad he was able to help. been using him for lots of years now. glad he got you sorted!
  2. ahh you got a loan of yasmine ian aka tich is a good guy so be fine there
  3. has this been sorted? know 3 if not 4 good garages not far from aberdeen and i am not far away in banchory with all tools needed - sure a local garage will have one in stock or able to get one asap try caldwell and dempster banchory north east four by four near stonehaven mann automotive near laurencekirk - although north east four by four does get parts from there too greenbank four by four outside aberdeen
  4. very expensive lockdowns.... mud pod, roof light bar and two side facing lights into 90 various odds and sods to do that, boy wiring and connectors adds up! nice set milwaukee tools - 3/8 impact wrench, drill, cordless screwdriver, right angle impact wrench and new battery rattle gun
  5. just fitted a month or two ago a roller door, needs 300mm above and we left 320 which was tight but worked. As somebody said you can get a box and stick door outside if needed to increase height. am sure a talented person could stick box above roof level to use all height and make waterproof with some joinery work to help hide.
  6. i had been told its not a good plan as each battery has its own health as such. what i did on my 90 was stick an anderson socket on main batt so its easy to connect to from outside seatbox. having said that i stuck my 90 on charge at rear anderson socket off aux batt - split charge - main batt for 12 hrs a week and no ill effect. if i was being smart/less lazy i would disconnect aux batt from main after fitting anderson socket to main in an easy to reach spot, and do one charge on aux, one charge on main per week.
  7. i must stick up for ASHTRANS, had a gearbox done by them and its perfect. Had a transmission box from them and i killed it good and proper, did take me over 100k miles to manage that and it was a lot of abusive driving on my part so they do really good products. didnt use them for replacement trans box but that was totally me being impatient and got elsewhere as i really needed car faster but when i break next box i will be trying them first as trust quality totally. the advice and support given whenever messaged or called has been great.
  8. so i just looked at an email dentist sent me for an appointment in a weeks time, omg may as well say please provide life history and every single medical issue since born. so i stopped and didnt complete it, they were asking covid specific questions last time i visited and i was totally ok with that, all be it akward as its seriously badly designed as i have to tick yes to in contact with a covid positive person every time due to voluntary work - what it doesnt ask is was i wearing required ppe so i have to choose, lie and get dental treatment or be honest and dont. thats not a good system sent dentist email to see, who gets data, why such a massive info request, what happens if i ignore chunks of it
  9. Wont pretend to understand all of that but its one of the best internet posts on this i have seen to date and clarifies a lot of stuff.
  10. i would be very surprised if not repairable - cant remember which model we have but it got rebuilt by us easily and cheaply. Dremel are almost built to be repaired. we got an exploded parts diagram off internet and just googled bits, was painless
  11. so some random thoughts having driven the new defender all on road for couple thousand miles and i guess couple hundred in a 19 plate evoque the evoque is god awful, sits too low on motorway and is seriously too complex on the touch screen - who needs so many options on a seat alone i wonder... have to say liked the heads up display of speed, only cause the dash is too small and obscured by steering wheel. adaptive cruise control is weird but actually really nice to use. revs too long in each gear. boot space sucks too small no fridge cubby box, and split lid so fiddly new defender is definetly a big car - lil too big and long in front for town junctions i hate the roof rack box on side is stupid, obscures drivers side mirror no cooled seats but ac is great fridge cubby box is great boot space is nice so would i have defender or evoque - defender for sure but i want to test off road and with a good heavy trailer but not allowed sadly.
  12. I return to work in the morning, all be it in a slightly different temporary role as the person who normally does it is high risk so sheilding. spending 5 days a week on a large ride on lawn mower over a reasonable chunk of our area so working and travelling alone, using phone to check in for lone working management. bit odd as was well into project of fitting mini mud pod into defender ( slow as electrics isnt my thing) but thats now back to weekend work. in background on call for 4 night shifts a week in a patient transfer service for last week almost since gone live - havent been used yet but with a considerable spike in our region that may change. be really sad when alarm goes in morning - havent had one in weeks.
  13. so i built the circuit today on bench - aka coffee table using a battery charger in place of battery live/earth and after some rude words it worked almost fine - only difference i could see was i ran a wire from live battery to sidelight pin on switch so was just on, normally this would i assume work when i had a sidelight on. then i took it apart pin by pin and listed stuff so i could do in car later. excuse wording its what made sense to me mixed in with some info from carling wiring off mud site. So I have, Earth from light to bulkhead bolt, used as earth Live from light to 87 on relay Live Inc fuse from batt to 30 on relay Earth from batt to 85 on relay 86 on relay to switch terminal two, which is power out Pin 2 linked to 3 on switch (carling say to do) Live from battery to pin 1 on switch, which is power in Pin 7 on switch to earth at fuse box bolt Pin 8 on switch to side light live so god knows why in blue
  14. just found info on lights, each is 18 watt
  15. running a pair of about 40 watt (from memory) led lights, like wee light bars so not massive. no pre made loom just a pair of wires out of each as is normal, red/black so suitable for whatever application hopefully
