GDPR

Later this month the GDPR will apply to this site since it is hosted within the EU and stores personal data about its users. I am currently testing an extension to the phpBB software used by the site. This should help it to comply with the GDPR by making it easier for users to confirm which of their...

Re: What happened to the forum?

Yes, it seems likely to have been a problem with routing somewhere between the server and you.

Thanks,

Re: What happened to the forum?

It appears to be OK now without any intervention and the server has been up for 83 days. I do need to reboot it later today for a new kernel, which will mean a minute or two of downtime, but for anything longer than that I would make an announcement. I've looked at the server graphs and logs and, wh...

Re: bottom

been thinking of getting a solar panel are they any good? Well, how long is a piece of string? 8-) Mine are total overkill for the task but I already had them, having used them for the house lighting on my previous house . So fitting to the landy was just a matter of bolting them to some roof bars....

That's a junction box with glands for cables. This shows the cable from the solar panels I fit for camping.

Re: bottom

Back on subject, db are you sure thats a one piece badge - it looks like a two piece set to me (like the ones I took off my '73 station wagon a few years ago :wink: ) I'm hoping to be able to put them on the Stage One in due course. Yes, try zooming in on it on the full size image http://album.dbro...

Re: Fairey OD linkages

I hadn't realised Bumpkin used to make these parts. He did provide the photos at http://www.stage1v8.org.uk/overdrive/index.html

I'm still in need of a linkage myself (having the RR bits, like Harry Potter) so if you do manage to get some made then I would be interested.

Re: New project, with extended hangers?

The extended hangers look like the 1-ton chassis. It had 9.00x16 tyres hence needed the lift. The lower ratio diff might be to compensate for the larger tyres.

See http://www.onetonlandrover.co.uk/technicalinfo2.html

However I didn't think there was a 1-ton stage1 from the factory.

So, 2 years have passed and it's on again this weekend.

Re: Indicator Stalk

It's a while ago that I replaced mine, but I don't remember having any problems, and I'm pretty sure it was the same part as for other series 3.
