  1. Seb, you will find that there is a fuel tank in the way... Mark
  2. Pete Attryde transplanted the 300 auto into his current 90, so may be worth an ask...

  4. Why not fit a radiator baffle as well for the winter months - it's an old technique, but might be worth a try? Like the bilge blower idea. I have to admit, on my td5 the fan is actually quite effective on both speeds, but the matrix still takes far too long to heat up! Cheers Mark
  5. James, have you checked the Autosparks website, to see if a row spec 300 loom can be had from them?
  6. james, once you are done with the old td5 loom, I could use a few bits of it to repair my damaged poverty spec td5... Cheers Mark
  7. Cellular Data? I can get internet radio on my phone in my car without any wires....
  8. Chris, I have always found Becker and Blaupunkt units to be the most restrained, and OEM looking, and I they do now offer some DAB units. I have also found a number of sellers selling 'Mech Free' head units - ie they don't have a CD or tape mechanism in them at all like this one albeit without DAB... Personally I found DAB in the car not to be as good as I had hoped - as you move it needs to retune, and it seems to need to do this very regularly, which gets annoying. Mine was a Sony DAB tuner that was in my Focus. just a thought Mark
  9. Michael, There is a chap who advertises on www.homeworkshop.co.uk and deals in refurbished inverters for the home market - I bought the one I use on my milling machine from him, and he was very helpful. Also far cheaper than buying a new one! My 1500W inverter (~2HP) is rated to draw 20A.... It doesn't seem to draw anything like that, but that is what the input plate says... hth Mark
  10. James, pictures of it installed would be really good.
  11. Hi Pete, What would you like to know? cheers Mark
  12. It does rather rely on the floorpan of the discovery being sound - mine wasn't which was why I used it for this conversion anyway.
  13. Ross, I made the decision a while before I saw that article, but it does go so far as to vindicate that decision. My intention was to treat it like a body swap - the fact that the new body had an id of it's own was immaterial - the original Discovery ID would be used, as it maintains all the original chassis, drivetrain, suspension and steering under the points system. The only sticking point was to be the chassis modifications - which were to be limited to removing the overhand at the back, and providing a new crossmember as well as the new body mounts. This would be no different to buildin
  14. I have had several people contacting me saying they are attempting a similar project, so I thought it would be time from an update.... Having got to the point you can see in the posts above, I got the shell sat on the chassis, pretty much as low as I could get it. Unfortunately this was still way too high for my liking, even having modified the shell to go round the obstructions on the chassis, it still sat too high, and left a massive gap between the top of the wheel and the arch. There is an article in LRM this month about someone else doing something very similar, but with the shell sat ev
