Re: Restoration

It is this phase that always takes the longest. I had the same problem with a lacquer. I had used fishoilene inside the frame of a new window top and some had got onto the outer face.

Re: Restoration

Do you think it would be a good idea to bung some rag or plugs into the open brake line fittings on the chassis? Just to make sure no crap ends up in the lines.

Re: Restoration

I wasn't sure if the discs added extra length to the axle. I know on other disc conversions I've seen, the front wheels were wider apart.

I guess if that is not the case, then the other issue with wider tyres will be the possibility that they will rub on the inner rear guards during flex.

Re: Wanted.. Spare wheel bonnet or fittings

Why not fit the bonnet mounts to the one you have? Same part numbers as the One Ten and Ninety. MRC5801 and MRC5063, plus associated nuts, bolts, and washers.

Re: Wanted: Stage 1 V8 Radiator Panel + Grille

They are pricey.

Given the width, why not use a Defender grille?
