Thanks todd,

what did you change?

It seems we have a similar taste in Land Rovers!

My landy is my very first car, bought when I was 17 (now 15 years ago), i Rebuilt it first and 9 years later I rebuilt it again, now on coil springs and with TDI power.

Currently, the body is being refurbished for obvious reasons....

Daan,

I used the "IMG" button, to link your pictures.

I thought the same when I was checking out your pictures, that you have posted in the photo album. B)

I to, have a coil sprung series 3, but still using the 2.25L gaser.

Those tires look awesome! What size are they? I'm using 265's. Also, your snorkel, is that home made ? if so, how did you do it?

Todd.

Thanks,

Tyres 35 x 10,5 x 16 Simex. On the picture they are 1 day old, just fitted at the simex factory in Kuala Lumpur.

The snorkel is a piece of alu tube with a Safarisnorkel plastic top. It feeds straight in a Turbodiesel arfilter housing under the wing, were normally the heater lives. It sits within the roll cage line (when snorkel top rotated 90 degrees). The snorkel tube is 3 inch, most off the shelf ones are 2,5 inch, which is a bit restrictive.

Did you galvanize your bulkhead? I was told not to, because of warping, and had it zinc sprayed instead. Is your standard s3 or made from thicker material?

Yes I galvanized the bulkhead. Sure, there was a little warping, but it was nothing that I couldn't handle. The door pillars were straight as an arrow, the warping was just in the areas, where there was flat metal.

Your last sentence, are referring to the bulkhead or the frame? Guessing, it's the frame, yes my frame is thicker than stock, 3mm vers 2mm.

Oi "One Land Rover is never enough" + just one running would be nice, used to be my old sig over on the "dark side of the force". ;)

Since we are in a "fleet" mood.
