  1. Very nice work! Keep the updates coming! Steve
  2. One of these: https://foundry4x4.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&manufacturer_id=14&product_id=59&page=2 They come in both gearbox flavours. Good piece of kit, I have one in mine! Steve
  3. A couple of handy tips here: Steve
  4. And that is Mannington! Is it with the Shire LRC. I know exactly where that bit is ....right down the bottom, quite dug out for some axle twisting! Steve
  5. I think we need a build thread! Steve
  6. The straight air die grinder with a burr is best for removing material, say if you're scalloping/fish-mouthing a steel tube. The 90 degree die grinder with the sanding flap wheels are good for de-burring, smoothing off metal. I have the Draper storm force die grinder in straight and 90 degree: https://www.toolstation.com/draper-storm-force-65130-air-mini-die-grinder/p60965?store=T2&utm_source=googleshopping&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=googleshoppingfeed&gclid=CjwKCAiAudD_BRBXEiwAudakX7LO-6CK3-n5wbMVbd8xPQRrYaHO1TUe1htnvLgwAaaW2eufUtVhJBoC7HkQAvD_BwE They ha
  7. Thanks for the write up, it looks a neat solution. Steve
  8. I did! It is embossed Aluminium like this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GII-G2-Embossed-Aluminium-Heat-Shield-Material-Simgle-Layer-Sheet-Exclusive-NEW-/152936424018#:~:text=BSTFLEX embossed aluminum heat shield,has a low emissive rate. Steve
  9. Depending on if you can access the outside of the square tube on the trailer, you could drill a hole though the tube and the square tube of the container body location peg and put a pin through the whole lot, like a lynch pin or something? Steve
  10. It's been a different year for me. I was about to get the 90 serviced and back on the road for MOT when lock down occured and so it's been sorned ever since. I've done a bit of work on my Dad's land rover, but beings it's all at my parents house I have had limited opportunities and now we're back in lock down. I've done a few little bits on the racer, but that's all. I started doing a bit of wood work, as I can do that at home, and getting out in the countryside going for more walks around where I live. That's been nice and we went camping for the first time with my daughter and she
  11. I too am in Tier 4, with lots of enthusiasm to get stuff done, but it's all at my parents house! When this all clears up, I think I'll be having a 6 month holiday at my parents to get it all done! Mike - are you always moving?! That is very true!
  12. Haha, I thought people would enjoy that episode! I have made a new thread in the video section here: Steve
  13. @mickeyw I was also thinking if I had a higher ah battery, say a 5ah, would that give the grinder, impact driver etc some more ooomff! Can anyone test this? Of does it just last longer? I read somewhere that the higher ah batteries have more cells... Steve
  14. Yes, please do start a build thread, that looks an excellent idea! Steve
  15. I have been using my cheap makita 1/2 inpact wrench at work. I've been undoing and tightening up screws on body panels, but undoing some tightish bolts and sthere's was nothing it couldn't do. Admittedly there were no wheel nuts, so I can't comment on tight things, but I did think about doing a test on bolts torqued up to gradually increasing torques and see what it could undo, so I'll report back on that. Mine has the gradual torque increase on tightening and a pulse feature too. I don't think you can buy a rubbish fake, so any cheap one should be ok. I did see that some of the
