It's good to see the wiper motors are a great handle to hold onto. ;D

This photo looks like a screenshot taken from a movie/video. If so, which one could it be? I notice that both vehicles do not have ARN plates.

BTW, could that be comedian Glenn Robbins hanging on to the wiper motor ;D

Just lost a post. maybe it was too long.

Anyway, thx, many thx to John for today. It was like a bit of Christmas. Came away with a overflowing little rice burner hatch.

Seats, ex Stg 1 to be fixed, rear GS cushions, one folding seat frame, 2 new Lucas sealed beams.
Bosch coil, gen. int mirror.
Some know how as well. John has a proper rivet set for doing door locks and bonnets etc.
I checked out the tub's underthings and attachments - not so complicated. Front chassis tabs similar to rear. The tailgate bracket will need a bit of custom work.

I had a very good chat with Dennis on Sunday too. And talk about phone-a-friend time.. Justin has found a donor chassis to be able to get me the crossmember tailgate brackets.
As a result of the weekend consultations I am realising there's so much to do.

"Par Oneri" is the RACT motto. My grandad was a RASC driver and he always said..

"If its worth doing, its worth doing well."

As a start, I am making a joblist:
1. Trailer more parts from up north, eg engine, panels
2. More enamel on the chassis in places. What is the chassis paint type used so far?
3. Custom work for tailgate brackets
4. Find a 2A 109 rear tub in perfect condition
5. Fit new brake pipes, flex hoses, fixings
6. Front hubs and correct steering linkage, steering tie rod fixes

Number 4 can take months and months -perhaps- but after the great assistance I had finding treasures this last weekend, I have saved a lot of searching time and I am saying 'perfect' as I'm now convinced anything is possible.

Hi Carzee,

I may have a suitable tub for you.

You can pm me for a contact number if you wish.

No worries.

The stuff you left behind is back on the shelf but I'll make sure I don't sell it a second time :)

Probably about time I came over and kicked some tyres.

Sing out when you want the engine stand and then when you want the engine crane.

G'day Carzee  :)

Well I can help with some part numbers for the flexible hoses you need,genuine LR part number for,Clutch,Front x2 and Rear x1 is RTC-3353  ;D that No should still be current as it is common to several vehicle types in UK/Rover/LRA.

When the raised chassis was first designed for D/\D one requirement was that most mods were variations of Std, so the front long hoses were rear (diff) hoses, and the clutch was the same,they were originally different P/No's but with rationisation in the 90's went to one common part No RTC-3353  ;)

All early S2's (without the chassis lift) used standard off the shelf hoses.

BTW. that wire cutter in that pic is incorrect, it should be mounted on the LH outer brush bar upright, with a strengthening bar back to the LH windscreen hing bolt and also have a bolt or cut close to the top to snag the wire  ;) as described by my RAEME friend Rob M (similar pics in LR's in Vietnam in REMLR archives pics) quite often they consisted of 2 clamped or welded star stakes of which there were many,particulary down the sides of the "Vung-Tau mine store"

cheers

Thanks for having that photo. Looks very 'pro' and not too difficult to have as a Parade Only attachment. A few bolts and its off.I had a brushguard (many moons ago) that had a series of holes down the flat side and I found another. I always thought some fisherman had had some gadget mounted there.

[I should mention I'm on a temporary computer today. Aust day evening here we had a good storm. Very pyrotechnic. Very close strike (200m) nearly blew the roof tiles off around here. Wrecjed my PC connection. The burnt- house- roof- next- door escaped damage from the rain courtesy of the tarps; been a month now, still no rebuild commencement.]

I have got this number underway for you Ross, it's a turn sig/switch, I dismantled a couple of them, taking what I considered to be the best of them

I have tested the circuits and all work OK, if the weather clears I will grit blast it and etch prime it, re-assemble waiting for a top coat of paint, you will have to paint what colour you deem, anyway cheers Dennis
ps have found a box and have started putting items away for you,,. and we are not using the wiring shown in the image either, it was US.
