    Defender Alternator ADVICE needed

    I run an 100Amp alternator on my Defender. It as a straight swap. The only thing I did was to double up the heavy brown wire from the alternator to the starter motor

    Breaker bar & impact sockets?

    Exactly. A well serviced vehicle will only need the breaker bar

    I don't know about the TD5 loom but the 300TDi loom is not up to running any headlights, the wiring isn't heavy enough I do like your build
  9. Well the prison sentence maybe small BUT they have a proceeds of crime to face. That could hurt more than the prison sentence

    When I had my lights fixed on all the time. I had some " round" nuts made with an Allen screw to help keep them secure

    110 lifting roof (has begun in earnest)

    Ferries do not have funney rules. The international Maritime regulations do. No Jerry cans on ferries empty or full

    battery isolate

    The only way to isolate the battery and not allowing it to run on the alternator is to fot an FIA battery master switch. You can also fit a series hasp to the battery box lid. The last time I returned from our trip. The shippers asked if they could drive the car out the box. I said yeas and gave instructions as where the battery switch was and how to use the key. On arrival at the docks. The box was open, car still inside. Even with my instructions they had been unable to find the master switch. Would that be good

    headlight bulb upgrade options

    No it wasn't. It was because BMC had fitted fog lights to make the dipped beam. Also the original H1 by Phillips had a vertical filament which gave the wrong beam pattern in a Lucas lamp which needed a horizontal filament to give the correct beam pattern. I still have some Lucas BFP to H1 adaptoes that were available in 1960. The RAC rally of November 1959 being the first event they were used on. The H1 was developed by Phillips for marine use Incidently a halogen or Iodene lamp doesn'e have a bulb but a quatz envelope
