OH dear, what went wrong?

did it leave you stranded or you manage to suss it?

didn't mean you had to cut the trip short did it?

Had to replace the front hockey stick bushes as they lasted a week on the corrugations before going west.
Had to swap out the transfer box in Malagar on the way home. Haven't stripped the old one down but the presence of gear teeth in the oil does not bode well for the internals
The transfer box lasted the duration of the trip getting noisier and noisier. I swapped it out for a 1:1.211 ratio
from TD5 auto discovery 2, rather a high ratio and a bit slow going up hill but a "grand ride down"
Since replaced the front shocks as all the oil came out when I jacked the front end up, and found that one of the shock turrets (a pattern item) had un-welded itself That was the cause of the mystery knocking noise.

Two years on and all is well, the paint hasn't stuck too well to the bulkhead and the rest of the paint isn't so shiny anymore I think I'll be getting some T wash/ Mordant Solution
http://www.icipaints.co.uk/products/...t_solution.jsp
Anyone know if it works on older galvanised steel or just fresh stuff?
The transfer box from the discovery is still in and I'm still pleased with the result and (touch wood) nothing else has gone wrong.
Got 35 mpg ( English ) whilst in Wales this summer
I've added a second battery and some wiring for an Engle fridge - brilliant piece of kit, and some body modifications will be needed to get the fridge in close to the second row door.

Nice build!

Check out this discussion for more info on painting over galvanized stuff. It's towards the end of page 3

Just a little up-date. Still going well, had to swap in a new alternator and water pump this year, otherwise all is going well.
Modified the bodywork in front of the rear wheel to sit an Engel fridge next to the second row door directly behind the driver's seat (great piece of kit).

Just swapped out the rear wheel brake cylinders today - weeping a little bit past one of the cylinders. Thought very briefly of purchasing a repair kit off ebay but then sense prevailed and two OEM cylinders were purchased. Went straight in no problems the unions on the brake pipes were n't even seized. Flushed new brake fluid through and the job was a good one. Took the opportunity to rotate the tyres while I had them laying in a big heap.

The bulkhead buckled a bit The large bolts that mount it to the chassis wouldn't line up. They were about 10mm out, a good deal of levering with a length of 4x2 sorted that out and so the bulkhead is on too. still need to drill & tap various holes in the bulkhead but it's starting to look a bit more like a landrover now. Here's some pics:
Wow! ... thank you for posting that. I was curious to see what that bulkhead looked like. I'm wanting to do some galvanizing on mine ..the bulkhead would be an absolute. Still searching for companies around here.
I'm also looking into the Ospho product I have seen mentioned as well. I live in a very dry state so? Thanks again Mike! And hurrah for your lovely and soon to be warmer wife!
