Cant find it . I searched the freelander section and your threads . Never mind .
My handle is proper broken and a new one is €163+phat from local stealers
.Cheapest I found online was £80 odd+ from Duckworths .
I intend cutting 3mm sheet aluminium (or whatever I can find)to the shape of the inside of the handle and it will sit at least a few mill inside . I will glue it to the handle using araldite or some such adhesive , after I mark and drill for new bolts .
I might also fix it some other way once I get the handle off and and see what I can do . I did fix it before using super glue iirc , to glue the broken bits back on . Its held for atleast 2 years, but the bolts are very rusted and the rubber backing is perished badly .I might use the old rubber backing or I might use some inner tube .
