    Replaced front to rear brake pipe from brave bias valve to rear flexi. That was a giggle!
    It joins the bias valve via a double ended male.
    It runs from valve, to NSF chassis top, between the fuel send and rtn pipes, then runs along top of chassis and pops over the edge nr the transfer box and continues cliped up high on NS chassi to flexi,I popped it out of the clip on NSF chassis top, with my fingers, it just disintergrated :eek::eek::eek:. Total Horror show.
    Check yours NOW!
    When i changed the A frame, where it meets rear flexi it was corroded, again i rubbed with my fingers and straight away 'spurt'! So had to change it anyway, Engine to chassis looks brand new, Chassis inside face to rear , same tip top. Soon as it goes top side of chassis fubar all the way.
    My scrap metal collection is getting too big, time for trip to dump me thinks.
    A frame, 4 stub axles, 2 x Swivels, 2 xCV's, 4 x drive shafts, 4 drove flanges x 2 calipers, a shed load of rusty bolts, x4 brake shields, and some brake pipe dust :D:D:D

    Lol so I get bored v easily, :rolleyes: cant sit still hence Im currently building :
    12x 8m x 5.5hApex Timber frame car port / workshop / office, (so i can fit a x2 post lift) & a 8x8m Timber frame recording studio, (to save the cows from my drumming) I tend to buy the bits i need then sit on them for a few months, then when I decide to pull me finger out I have what I need to hand.;)

    Def Mileage is approx 123K

    A frame has made a real difference, not just ride but noise, no more creaks n squeaks, oh yea and the rear of the truck no longer appears in my passenger mirror and looks like it wants to over take me.:p:D

    Seriously gents, when you remove the first swivel, chop the crucible off and use it as jig in a vice like I did. (you will need a big grinder / paddy saw) or settle in for a few days with a hacksaw....its feckin hard metal!
    Its SO much easier than trying to work with the little bugger moving about like a star wars droid thing on the bench. You only have to do it once, then you sorted!
    You could always make a jig i spose.....depends how good you are at drilling and welding.
    @bankz5152 now there's a thought, would take you 10 mins to knock one up!
    I remember about 25 years ago my pal had a series, or tractor with no doors as i referred to it then, and we did what i referred to as the 'silver ball thing' swap on it.
    FFS I got so sick of holding that thing still while he fanny'd around building it up, he refused to put it in a vice, fair play to him, you don't want to mark it else the seal is useless etc.

    Make sure your 120% as it doesn’t come off easily! I was going to do the disco in an almost olive drab raptor. Easy to spray diy and tough as nails for laning etc. i was planning to do both inside and out before putting them sound deadening in

    My defender only really goes off-road during trout season and on the odd shoot or around the farm I use. However, it carries everything from dogs to rods to tools to build my other Land Rover lol. Sometimes I think why haven’t I got a comfy car then other times I thibk im so glad I haven’t got a boring car. Very strange relationship!

    I thibk it would look hard as nails in gun metal grey. Bmw used to do a colour called pewter grey that was so nice. Different finish and application though obviously!

    I like the gunmetal but have been playing paint mixing and with a tiny hint of powder blue makes a nice difference (think the same difference between merc silver today and fiat silver in the 80's lol)
