Default Kitting out my Defender

Planning to kit out my 90 a bit, looking for a spot of advice:

SEATS: Planning to buy the =A3102 seats from Exmoor Trim - are they any
good?

PIONEER TOOLS: Looking for the spade and pickaxe in good nick for the
back, anyone know where to find them?

ROTATING BEACON: Looking for a blue rotating beacon, and some way of
attaching it that will make it removable and won't make my Landy look
horrible. Was contemplating a magnetic one and a steel plate inside the
roof or something. Ideas?

STEREO: Planning to have a centre console built to house a stereo, comm
radio and PA system. Any recommendations as to those gadgets? Stereo
needs a CD changer, and I'm planning to have the speakers housed in the
front of the unit so the whole thing is removable.

There were a few other things, but I've got to go... Any ideas greatly
appreciated.

Anchor Supplies. The local garden centre once had some in, a couple of
years ago. Getting them to look nice might need a bit of effort.

Unless blue is for authenticity, it's not worth the possible hassle.
Stick with amber. Magnet and steel plate works well. I once epoxied a
steel plate on the outside of a truck cab. The magnet will grip a plate
inside. Just don't have anything breakable the plate might drop on,
when you want to stow the flasher.

I don't know where you are located or your intended use but my first question
would be are you authorised to use a blue beacon? Anyway, apart from the
suggestions already mooted how about using a spigot mount available for
tractors etc and available from all decent agricultural supplies places? These
mounts come in a range of styles and consist of a pipe with a plug let in the
end into which plugs a suitable spigot mounted beacon. The pipes often have a
plate welded on the end for bolting to the vehicle but some are available where
the pipe is hinged to the plate which enable it to be folded when not in use.

At work we had a blue beacon on one of our fork lifts a few years ago. It
has to go on public road to get from one building to another and we were
told by the police to remove it.

The reason for the beacon is that I'm dressing up my Landy as a
Military Police vehicle for an airsoft event; that's why I'm wanting to
use a magnetic beacon, so I don't fall foul of any laws when not on
private land.
I'll ask the local garage to mount a plate, then. Cheers, folks!
