Hey Jack ... I'd like a very efficient tool storage system for the defender ... currently I use a series of tool rolls but they never seam to have the right spacing or configuration. If you had a tool roll system that was adjustable to neatly fit tools but also rolled and was compact to be stored neatly.

The crowd here can be a bit tough sometimes but are also very supportive ... there is a thread where someone created a fire extinguisher mount system which was effectively kickstarted here!

Maybe post some of the ideas you have had ... even if you rejected them as it will get the conversation flowing.

I think a reciever mounted bike rack works fine.

How about a tool roll that holds sockets in size order. A simple roof lifting system like the VW poptop. An adapter for the izuzu 2.8tdi. A prism type device to see the traffic lights when you are the first vehicle in the line.

Hi Jack, going with the tent theme.. how about a hard side tent/storm shelter that folds into a small unit, I'm thinking geodesic dome from hard panels.
Make it scalable - paint it digger yellow & your onto a winner.

have fun

In all seriousness, for the sake of one's career in automobiles, I would recommend a project that involves CANBUS communication with the automobile.

That's where the jobs and money are. It's where the future is.

Unfortunately... It is not fun trying to find a chaffed wire on a CAN bus network that is connected to everything in the vehicle. This was my co-worker back in Richmond, Drew, trying to do just that.

What about installing a Capstan Winch onto a Defender?

I've had just this one installed to it, very pretty workmanship installed and working, but it was a PITA to get the timing belt exchanged.

The cooler was set 2" up and replaced very narrow to the fan.

This remains a lot of parts have to be removed befor entering the necessary parts to be removed for the asked workmenship.

I would like to see a new design for this opportunity.

Decided Project - Pet seat

Thank you for everyones ideas. After researching and evaluating, most were either too simple or complicated for my project. I have decided to design and make a 'pet seat' suitable for fitting in the the gap between the two rear seats of the defender 90. It would be easy to remove, and slot in place to provide an area for a dog, etc. to lie. It would have a front and rear barrier to stop the animal going forward or backwards.
I can't find anything similar in existence in the market - I know that we struggle when we want to take our dog out - he has to sit on one of our laps, as if we left him on the floor, he would walk to the front of the vehicle.
Thanks for all of your ideas, what do you think of this idea?

There is already something like that on the market that I use. Here is a picture of it. I use it on my two beagles.
