    It happens at times

    My mate rebuilt his s1 rs turbo had loads of issues along the way with rust and parts being overpriced for second hand or worse than the bits he was replacing at one point

    Took the car out for a drive and mk3+4 escorts are renown for bonnet catches failing, his did in the first week of getting it mot’d and the flipped up.... shattered the screen, scuttle panel, roof and wrote the shell off

    A car I’m about to work on has been rebuilt twice, both times it died in its first outing... £50k in parts

    Not had a chance to dig about for a starter yet Dan but there is a good chance there will be one in there. Got me confused now, is this 12 or 24volt?

    Update; I now have working electrics!!! Had a new series/parallel relay sent out and it appears to be working magnificently:D

    I also took a pair of Mazda rx8 seats as payment for a job I did, tried the passenger one in and it’s bloody comfy! Shame they aren’t in slightly better nick but there we go, can have it all I suppose. They’re heated, so if I can work the wiring out that’ll be nice!

    To be fair at least mine isn't used as a permanent dog kennel :whistle:

    I'll have you know it was clean once for a friend's wedding where I was the bridal transportation. Professionally valeted, even after I'd already cleaned most of the dog hair out it still took 4h... The valeter didn't even mind when I sent him a photo a week later with a headless, gutted red deer strapped to the bonnet leaking blood over it.

    If he ever saw the cream leather interior and cream carpets in my car he’d have an epeplexi

    Always spotlessly clean. ALWAYS

    Not had a car with cream leather but did have "sand" leather in the Range Rover. Although the back seats had a genuine seat cover over them for the dogs. In my defence the dogs started off in the boot but it was a pain packing the car with stuff on the back seats (especially when you're carrying guns around fairly regularly).

    Like Bob's delicous the Defender is a working vehicle so gets treated as such.

    My boss in the late 90's, who was an arrogant ****, had a new Rover 800 Sterling, green with cream leather interior. He had it a fortnight and went up to the Sheffield area from Essex. On the way back down the M1 on a wet evening, all the leccy windows went down! Every time he put them up one or more went down.
    Next day the inside was a mess, he drove it to the dealer, slammed the keys down on the desk, demanded his money back, walked out and got a taxi back.
    Rover had a look at it and found the guy that my boss had to fit the mobile phone had put a screw through some wiring so was nothing to do with them and he was told to come and pick it up!!

    My wife’s stepsister had a stereo fitted in her Suzuki Tonka Toy Jeep thing, just after the whole family went to Newquay for a weekend in January. Window went down on its own & wouldn’t go back up. Guess who was in the car park in Mevagissey trying to fix it! Bloody window was my side as well! Turned out the guy fitting the stereo had drilled straight through the loom.

    Bosses mate, keys wouldn't go into his Vito's ignition.

    Phones garage assistance provided on his insurance. Young lad comes out in breakdown van and sprays WD-40 in the ignition. Loom smoulders. 2k bill still being fought over.

    thought maybe I should actually post an update!

    so to begin with, the front axle went in the bin. 10 spline half shafts with a chocolate rover diff was never going to last. a 24 spline 4pin HD Rover diff was given to me with knackered bearings. These diffs were fitted to v8 range rovers and 90s, and as was the case with this diff, late td5 and puma engined 110s.

    the problem with these diffs is that whilst they are many times stronger than a std duty rover diff, they don’t actually fit into a “long nose” axle casing. After some head scratching, it was worked out that the 4pin centre could be machined down to fit! Unfortunately I didn’t think to take any bloody pictures of this but after a few hours on the lathe we had a diff in a long nose carrier!

    next step was to either buy 24 spline halfshafts etc, or get a good axle from a disco as they’re 24 spline. The second option was pursued and a “good” axle was bought from a friend of our old fellas for 70 quid complete.

    When it appeared, I found that there was no oil in the axle at all, there was however water. Lots of it. Along with badly corroded swivels, seized and corroded CVS and seized callipers.sigh.

    Rather than cause a ruckus, I chose to just stand for the loss and rebuild what I had. The axle was stripped completely, blasted and repainted. New CV joints were fitted, new Teflon coated swivels, new kingpins and bearings, new vented discs and 110 callipers, new wheel bearings, and finally a diff built up with all new bearings etc!

    the axle was rolled under, new springs and shocks fitted, new castor corrected radius arms polybushed etc.

    The rear axles a salisbury, so was just painted as the running gear is sound. A disco conversion is in the wings for that though!

    Hideously large (37x12.5”) tyres were sourced, awaiting rims. Bit bigger than the std 7.50x16s!!!

    43C51F83-89D0-4E07-AF0D-E1894713EE59.jpeg

    tank was painted, new -AN couplings were welded on with a new pickup pipe, then refitted

    Two piece Hose clamps were made to hold the twin lines and also the goodridge braided brake hoses from nylon stock, and clamped down with stainless m6 flange bolts into rivnuts placed in the chassis.

    Seats were also final fitted so now at least I have somewhere comfy to sit while I faf with dash wiring! Seat heaters are yet to be wired in to an aux fuse box under the drivers seat
