    ibex 300 build

    Untill my 110 got nicked i was gonna keep it for the kids / family car once it had paid for itself. I'm consdiering the D2 donor and an ibex for the same reasons. The platform lends itself well to electrification once the diesels are banned. i'd love a d3 based F8 as they ride real nice and are great off road aswell.

    ibex 300 build

    D2 /P£* are dirty cheap. My only issue is the dash / ac as the F8 requires a Puma dash and there more than a brace of D2's !!! Also the traction / abs is a good to have. I'd want the D2 dash and controls as well as as much parts from the donor as poss. Thinking around a king cab (larger king than currently offered with an extended wheel base 104 -110 and a pick up bed.

    Disco 2 or Disco 3 ..... Discuss!

    General appraisals of D2 consumption are more like 18 mpg. Mines bad but i dont go anywhere lokng enough or fast enough to lock the thing up in top. My 530e on the other hand is electric for the first 30 miles and is averaging 48mpg which is ok for a petrol turbo.

    Disco 2 or Disco 3 ..... Discuss!

    well, i just bought a d2 td5 auto cheap enough to do all the bits like Ashcrofts TQ upgrade, CDL fitment ,better tyres, a remap etc and i got a lovely 5 series for doing the commute. I mused a d4 but mpg, running cocst and depreciation made my soluton a no brainer plus i can tinker!

    M57 land rovers

    Best to talk with rally raid. I'm guessing costs and simplicity are the main drivers. Why over complicate the conversion.

    Mercedes om606 engine

    longer bump stops, axle limiters? if it all fits nicely is it worth all he extra hassle for a few mm travel?

    Divorcing an LT230

    on the divorced front, i have a TB and a 722.6 and a chassis now so there's plans afoot. Could do with a cad drawing of the connecting flange from LT230 to Gearbox (MT82) in this case, although i believe there all the same? Plans are to make a BIG multi point bracket to hold the end of the gearbox to the TB bracket and a skid plate.
  14. Is there a CAD file available that has the dimensions of the LT230 to Gearbox connecting flange? Can do it the traditional way if not but it would be handy for all in the archive.

    Sell or Refurb then sell

    it'll sell for far more than its really worth so sell it as is. Maybe buy a disco 1 / 2 if your a masochist !
