  1. Assault helmet

    Ebay offers plenty of cheap secondhand expolice body armor. I could take the chest part for the chest and the back part for the legs, from navel to knees. Optional armor plates can be added. I have also checked local regulations, and it's perfectly legal in Spain to own and wear this type of equipment.
  2. Assault helmet

    Yep, that is! Even balistic face shields are affordable and relatively easy to source in europe. This one is built in UK.
  3. Assault helmet

    Ok, will search for those. Thanks.p
  4. Assault helmet

    How are those type of PPE called? Have found a real secondhand item in ebay, shipped from Khazakhstan. I could buy a complete landy for that money!
  5. Assault helmet

    Sometimes things go wrong. I want to be prepared just in case. A neighbour died when working with the high presure suspension of his citroen bx.
  6. Assault helmet

    Hi all, I have been thinking about sourcing an assault helmet for using when doing weird works in with a 30 ton press, but all I have found are replicas for airsoft/paintball wars. Any idea if this type of equippment can be legally bought and where? Thanks.
  7. Focusing on the garage/pit build, so no real work on the little landy. We have bought a 6 volt quad bike. I will salvage and overvolt a similar second unit for this project. Cheap and simpler than the bicycle hub motor idea.
  8. Two or Four post lift

    A friend sent me this week a pair of pictures of a two post at a franchised workshop.
  9. Home built half shafts

    Have found this at youtube. Same method used for buiding cranckshafts at home!
  10. If the info about Defender stub axles given by britpart is correct, all 90/110 vehicles up to KA930446 (drums on back) use the same, so AEU2522 should replace directly the smaller 32 spline CV in any Def 200 axle, matching with correct shsfts (AEU2520 AEU2521). Just wonder why Solihull used different stub axles in RR/Disco.
  11. AEU2522 suposed to go on axles up to 20L48865 in Defenders, but other data give even different axle number for left and right cv! https://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/57129-a-little-cv-advice/
  12. OBy the way, a friend has a 300 tdi Disco. Engine tweaked, 285/75 33" tyres, used 100% off road and just one cv failure in 5 years. Replacement was a ****part 32 spline unit that cost just 15GBP. I have also heard about racers downsizing CVs, because the big AEU2522s usually lock when failing and take along with them the entire chrome ball, while smaller CVs simply let you continue with a noisy axle until repair.
  13. Unfortunately in Spain, where I live, british built Land Rover sales started in 1990 with the 200 Defender, so no AEU2522 23 spline cvs available at scrapyards. Only options 10/32 thick flange or 24/32 thin flange.
  14. Hi all, I want a wider and stronger front axle for my 88. I have discarded YJ Dana30 (liked the CAD system, but weak and ratio/diff offset are wrong), and also DII and japanesse axles. I think the only axle I could afford will be a 10 spline coiler axle. Cheap as I could reuse my diff centre. More cash in a few years will give me the oportunity to go for a 24 spline diff. If my 10 spline coiler axle is fitted with 32 spline rtc6862 cvs, will it be as simple as fitting a pair of 24/32 shafts? Is something else needed? (oil seal....)
