  1. I thought they were there to stand on to get better access under the bonnet. 🤔
  2. I used a hammer and dolly, then a "G" clamp with wooden blocks but mine were ally.
  3. I'm looking forward to it, the club I am with had booked a stand last year so it was carried over for this year. I haven't been to the off road site before, but the previous show there was excellent I was told.
  4. I have fitted Disco 1 seats in the rear of my 110 I didn't need to modify the wheel boxes. They fold forward against the front seats I made a frame to mount the original hinges to and a box section frame to act as the rear legs. The one problem I had was the door handles would foul the seat back when laying flat so I replaced the plastic handles with straps.
  5. That was an interesting topic. Mine still works fine but little chance of finding a replacement if it goes.
  6. They may be E marked but not for UK. if that is E8 that covers the Czech Republic which is left hand drive I believe.
  7. Welcome to the forum, I am just over the mountain from you. What money pit do you own?
  8. I believe if you can prove where most of the parts came from you will get an age related plate.
  9. That looks tasty, I regret selling my XJ-S 5.3 at times what a beautiful engine silky smooth but drinks like anything.
  10. Could it be ex military? would that explain the 2.5na, and is it the military green on the inside of the rear door?
  11. Welcome to the forum, You can buy gasless mig welders which use a suitable wire. As for what is available in your location I am unable to help but best of lick with it.
  12. I am unable to view that. but glad to hear all is well.
  13. I found this site a few years ago might be of use. http://www.gtsparkplugs.com/WireSizeCalc.html
  14. I have the Optimil Wheel boss and cover, It is a great bit of kit. I also have the docking station fitted on the dash below the wheel where the swivel lock resides when driving and the wheel goes when off. I thought it might get in the way when driving but it doesn't and the wheel is out of sight when parked up. I also have a pedal box but must get around to fitting it, I have to move the bonnet release catch first nice to know it will still work if fitted over my matting.
