  1. Making progress. Completely std build using good S/H parts and all new bearings/rings. Once I got all the required parts it’s gone together reasonably well.
  2. Yea none taken..... I've since sold it and in fairness didnt enjoy the end product as much as I thought I would.... R20 arent the lightest things in the world and with all the 3-bike stuff it was just incredibly heavy.... I've since gotten over my 'building bikes' phase but there are still bits there for another project... Still probably have alot of Raleigh specific stuff so let me know if you need any hardware.
  3. I built that e-bike you say is dorky.... But a quick hint, the BMS that came with the Vurzend kit didnt last for long, I ended up buying another one. Still have a bunch of Vurzend connectors.
  4. Still doing this... More on the mechanicals.... Bought a valve seat cutter, refreshed the head. Inc new stem seals. Rough hone out of the cylinders. And start of the rebuild.... unfortunately I could only save 3x of the std 998 pistons so I'm on the hunt for another one. Its proving difficult...
  5. That’s the other idea. Challenging to find TDI manual which isn’t flogged out though. Will just have to see what come my way
  6. The axles I have are essentially the early version of what ended up in the defender/disco. It means a disc brake conversion can use existing LR parts.
  7. Tis the colour scheme I'm fond of. I used to drive a D2 Disco V8. I remember the fuel bills...
  8. Disco chassis is 100” wheelbase so would need to be lengthened Was trying to stay away from 200/300TDI as most stuff for sale is well worn and will need rebuilt. thinking either rebuild the running gear I have in it now (if parts are even available) or complete engine/gearbox swap to something which has the output shafts in the corect orientation. Options?
  9. I have the “when a 4x4 is born’ DVDs where a guy does exactly this. Would stay solid axle but wanted to get coils/disc brakes/power steer/modern power train in one hit rather than make up piecemeal
  10. Hmmm so that means I'm committed to a range rover chassis if I go down that path... with all the mechanical goodnesss
  11. Small win... 99% sure I can do my chassis swap as a modified production LVV assessed and not as a scratch built.... A series2 on a later chassis is an example given in this sheet.... https://www.lvvta.org.nz/documents/infosheets/LVVTA_Info_02-2018_Modified_Production_&_Scratch-built_Low_Volume_Vehicle_Definitions.pdf That makes me happy.....
  12. That's an idea... Like you'd expect, a twitchy brick. But based on my experience from my previous one I know that can be improved. Just committed to not taking a spanner to it until this mini is finished...
  13. Model A fords, late model falcons, S1 land rovers... LR pricing seems two phased - either decent projects for a few k or stuff that has been barely tidied up for a WOF which is priced for moonbeams....
  14. Do it... place this came from had a paddock full of em no idea, it’s got a ratchet at the back so basically same design you’d see on s boat trailer
