  1. Rodeo Joe replied to the thread can I use a rear door spare wheel carrier on my bonnet??.

    Well that's shown yourself up hasn't it.... I haven't resorted to personal abuse as anybody with any intelligence would have taken my comments with a pinch of salt and accepted then with the humour they were intended. Its an open forum and I'll...

  6. Rodeo Joe replied to the thread Series 3 Chassis swap - bitten off too much.

    I'd do it on a bench, as long as its roughly the same shape as you took off it'll fit one way or another........landrover tolerances are the friend of the rebuild. Oh, one proviso make sure the bulkhead long fixing bolts are in the right position.
