  1. Good work! It's coming together nicely. You have to make the most of the dry weather! Steve
  2. I used an Abracs brand as seen here: it gave a clean cut on my old floor standing pillar drill and has the two pin locking mechanism so the hole saw is easy to remove after use. And once you've bought the arbor you just need to buy the hole saw for future sizes. Other brands may use the same locking features, but that's the one I opted for. Steve
  3. It should be tucked under the panel in the drivers side rear wheel arch which covers the rear lights. Steve
  4. If you find the two groves or patterning then that is facing outwards. I wanted the best conditions for fitting my screen and to make it easy. I didn't want to say half way through the process 'oh I wished I had removed that' so I removed the dash top, side trims and head lining. I had someone holding the screen with ducker handles and got it seated in the bottom edge and central. Then pulled on paracord (soaked in hot soapy water along with the seal) up each side. I then pulled on teh first top corner which was fine and then had to really tug on the last corner and then did the top edge. I was quite chuffed when I had done it, almost shocked! Steve
  5. Hi Tom, I thought the same thing when I opened my new windscreen rubber up, but after a bit of examination from the old one it was correct. The Glass goes in one of the slots, the other 'slot' is part of the filler piece that takes the gap up in the windscreen surround contour. I have drawn a simple sketch in paint to hopefully explain myself! Hope this helps, I think you have the right seal!! Steve
  6. Oh yes, saw that! I know what you mean, I did a google. I think the windscreen has more of a rake on those blitz body things, so I think this is more tomcat! Steve
  7. I found this too! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LAND-ROVER-DEFENDER-RALLY-CAR-RACER-OFFROAD/202919866357?hash=item2f3ef76ff5:g:xDIAAOSwJUBd3W0j
  8. Please do continue!.........with a link and pictures! 😃
  9. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/comp-safari-88-ALRC-car/264665760137?hash=item3d9f4f0189:g:vwoAAOSwP2Zea3E9 This is definitely interesting! I remember looking at the build thread here: (https://www.landyzone.co.uk/land-rover/alrc-project.160626/ The chassis and roll cage were made from scratch! As well as most other stuff! Steve
  10. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover-Chassis-Racing-Chassis-comp-safari-off-road-trail/153854894042?hash=item23d2775fda:g:7H4AAOSwYY1eYXW1 Interesting...... A king cab I presume when you add a bulkhead and doors to the half sized suicide doors! And on a tube chassis!
  11. I had a weird electrical issue on my TD5 90 and that was due to a badly crimped main feed wire like yours which had turned green. I would trim back to clean bare wire and re crimp as that's probably not helping. Steve
  12. Not yet! We need to do the engine mounts too and so we were contemplating on taking the exhaust off, but it won't be an easy task I don't think. Hopefully it'll warm up a bit soon and I can get back on it. My Dad's enthusiasm needs a top up!! Steve
  13. I'm still trying to sort this. i phoned a local auto box specialist today which recommended undoing the flex plate bolt to look at the blocks they go into on the torque converter - these could be cracked where they are welded on. Worth a look I suppose. I've also email Ashcrofts, so awaiting there feedback. I've also attached a short video clip of the noise! VID-20200212-WA0006[1].mp4
  14. If you say that you have drive with the difflock selected and none without, that would point to the centre diff being damaged I think. You might want to check the hole drive train by jacking a wheel up and checking for noises when you spin a wheel. Steve
  15. A bit late, as you've already decided and bought something! I've had good success with this type: https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/28024256266?iid=262382065115&chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=262382065115&targetid=856772926721&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9045812&poi=&campaignid=6619152134&mkgroupid=88678400376&rlsatarget=pla-856772926721&abcId=1140496&merchantid=7280834&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhNauw7zH5wIVA4jVCh2cbwx-EAQYAyABEgLO2vD_BwE I say this type, as I think the ones I used/borrowed were Snap-On.
