    Ordered new trailing arms today. One was so bad I could move it about by hand, without a pry-bar or anything! Next, on to a clunk/twang when changing steering direction. It may be a front right spring problem me thinks as my steering arms seem fine.

    Entered the Freelander and the MGF in a show last weekend and got first in class for both of them. That made all of the cleaning and polishing worthwhile! [IMG]

    2005 TD4 bought as a toy a few years ago. Fell in love with it and it soon became our primary car (above the Jag !!). Had it's MOT yesterday at nearly 135k miles and passed with 2 advisories - needs tyre (already on order) and rusty back coil...

    Needed a 4x4 in a hurry for a job on a wind farm at 2500', in winter. Bought it for £900. So far it has had; Centre diff mount. Diff seals. Battery Passenger front window regulator. Was going to fit a rear door regulator, but on stripdown, found...

    With that changover socket, presumably you'd still need a disk running in the changer for the H/U to operate on the CD function and accept the audio in of the accessory?

    It's bloody good isn't it. Impressive technical knowledge on the dark arts is being demonstrated. A stripped out turbo beast seems appealing.

  7. kernowsvenski replied to the thread Aux input.

    You'll lose the multichanger function. As far as I'm aware there isn't a decent option to keep both. Personally, I think an AUX IN is a better option though. Ipods, and now phones offer so much more these days, what with podcasts, spotify and...

    Hi, it’s looking good indeed. Today I have fitted the soft top and stored away the hard top safely on my 3 door HSE. It is so good to have the top down on a beautiful sunny day; I love my Hippo! Also; passed MOT last week with 1 advisory, drop...

    Don't tell everyone about that. I pay for my holidays by helpfully offering to "get rid of that car battery for you mate" You'd be amazed how many I get, especially in my line of work. Mike

    A little update on this thread too. This is the 18" Sport rim. [ATTACH] This is how they look when fitted with 235/55/18 tyres. There's still about 5mm clearance between the strut and tyre. The FL1 is a standard hight SE facelift. [ATTACH]

  11. kernowsvenski replied to the thread Freelander 1 Wheel Identification Library.

    I think the 18" sport rims are the best looking option on the FL. Although, I do like those Vortex ones. I have seen one or two cars with them on but assumed they were FL2 wheels fitted. I didn't realise that style was on option on the FL1. I'm...

    That lot doesn't look like my changer loom. Looks a bit untidy - and after market to me.

    I wish I had the space, time and cash for a project vehicle. I'd love to be doing stuff like this

    Yeah, you should definitely have taken that lot to the scrappy. I got a tenner for an old battery the other day.
