    80 series dashboard

    I’ve made repairs to mine using flexible body filler and it looks good, you may need to Ed paint the whole dash if you can’t get the correct colour, but be aware that any silicone based dash cleaners/ polishes need to be 100% removEd or the paint won’t stick and you will have fish eyes all over it

    Suspension help?

    Gents once again you come through! Thanks! @Dave 2000 that’s exactly what I needed, I need to find my piece of paper, but I’m sure it was 11cm at the back and 4cm front which isn’t much more than standard height now @Shayne, they were 18” and are long gone now, it drove horrible and the tyres...

    Suspension help?

    Thanks Dave, I’m just looking for some general indications, to guide me in the direction of what I’ve got, I guess if mine was a 4” lift then by now its like to be somewhere around 3” by now but I have no idea of what the distance between anything whether std or lifted is cheers J

    Replacement shock absorbers

    Frank I’m well aware it’s the springs for height, but all I can really find is shocks for a 2” lift, and as you state these aren’t in the correct length / operating range for longer springs, I’m sure with the sag in my springs now they may not be far away but I wouldn’t take that chance. I see...

    Beware of dirty Diesel

    I recall a couple of years ago watching the Tesco fuel tanker filling up at BP and thought that if they don’t use their own fuel then it must be pretty crap! My ship I work on is having fuel issues, we think the barge that delivers to us sucked the crap from their tanks, as such we are having...

    Ignition barrel

    In one hand I guess I have been lucky again, it looks like my bro in law pulled the key out in the acc position so it was easy to pop the little button and remove the barrel, but no way I ca get it turning, the old scrap 80 local to me is still there so another freebie and I’m mobile again, I...

    Ignition barrel

    Hi Mike, yeah I’ve done lock barrels before but now I’m sponsored by specsavers I’d rather not bother I think they can get the key in now but it won’t turn, will see if there is a spare key at the previous owners and try that, but likely it’s going to be parked in their field till I get home...

    Ignition barrel

    ok, so I’m not able to give much information but still asking for help, again! I’ve given my sister my 80 while I’m in Denmark and I’ve had a call to say they can’t get the key to go all the way into the barrel, it still works in the door, I only have one key, yes I know! It’s likely I’m sure...

    Yet another 80 build thread

    Only pulling your leg. I grew up with series land rovers and will always have a bit of a soft spot for them. CG, I grew up changing clutches, gearboxes and almost everything else on all the farmers ones when I was an apprentice, and will always have a deep seated hatred for them

    Roof Rack, Help required

    Thanks for the replies, with the width I think it will look like a helipad, hanging over the side! a 3/4 length look I think is quite cool and would allow me to still open the sunroof! I’ll likely pass on it unless it’s still for sale when I get home and can go to try it on top Cheers

    Alternator replacement,..........possibly.

    I bought a regulator for mine, fitted it, no change then bought a complete new alternator, still no change, they were going to send me a replacement but gave me some checks to make, you should have 12v down all 3 wires going to your alternator, I didn’t, it was the fusible link on the passenger...

    I know this isn’t a Landcruiser but I found myself in the same situation with an Audi I just bought, looking at this I just bought another engine rather than spend, where do you stop replacing parts for piece of mind? Yes you do know what you have, but still no guarantee something else won’t fail
