Re: Satge 1 rebuild...

Thinking of doing the transfer ratio swap rather than rebuilding the fairy it has, I haven't got the proper linkage and a slightly higher gear set will be better for bimbling around. I'm not intending to do much towing.. Fairly common around here, RRC hi-ratio and leaving the lo-ratio intact. The e...

Right thought I'd take a minute to start with a few photos and a bit of a slower rebuild to Geofs!

You need to change your privacy settings on your Google Drive (?) to public for those photos.

Re: Gumtree again

Wonder if it is in fact a Disco 1 conversion, as in a 100" special?

Re: Dampers (shock absorbers)

I just recently replaced mine with Monroe. The direct equivalent to RTC4483. I think they are probably too soft, so I would go for harder shocks than standard. Most miles are onroad these days and usually about 300km at a trot at around 90-95km/hr.

Re: Ebay again

Re: Gumtree again

Re: Restoration

Another way of thinking about it, is that colour trends go in cycles. Won't be long before 80's pastels are back in style :lol:

Re: Restoration

Get a socket from your plumbers' merchant.

About colours, and given the amount of effort you have gone to in making this pretty near new perfect, why aren't you looking at the original colour charts?
