    ... a bit of my scabby face just fell off. :eek:
    I have a healed-up "crater" just under my eyebrow and there is now only a very thin covering of skin over the bone at the top of the eye socket. :(
    I now look quite a raffish scoundrel, rather than a scabby-drunk. Which is a big improvement. ;)

    Hoping to get engine out of donor next week, then it needs lined up and engine mounts welded on, then a bit of sorting through wires:eek:
    Been looking for engine/gearbox mounts. They appear the same o_O the old style round ones:confused:

    got these ready to fit too:)

    Apparently it only needs 4 wires to run the efi from what I’ve read. Will be taking disco mounts off and re-welding them into defender. Going to spoil the galvanising a bit though :(

    Thats a shame one of my other defenders also had that done, I painted them with a zinc primer &
    cold galvanising paint. Id read in the past there wasnt much wiring to do to get it to run.
    Heres hoping. Ref the mounts you could weld a plate on each mount & bolt them on.

    Do you mean leave original mounts on and extend them to correct position? I had read that the down pipes are too close to the chassis and would foul them
