    Looking for a spotlight mounting bar

    From experience, that bumper mount isn't very strong and will allow the lights to wobble. You'll need to brace it elsewhere - possibly with some spotlight stays back to the slam panel. Excuse my ignorance Doodle, what is a slam panel please?

    Viscous coupling for fan

    No great experience with L.C's, but I really studied all that was written about the advantages of electric fans when I had my Suzuki Samurai offroader. I fitted a Kenlowe and all was well until I went on a long offroad holiday and it died in the remotest possible place! I managed to get it...

    Gear Lever Rattle

    Thanks Mark. When I took my gear lever out I found some previous owner had already" drilled and filled" in an attempt to stop the rattle - as well as weld the two pieces as shown in my earlier (33) post above. Well I just drilled and bolted and the problem is solved! Those two pieces of metal...
