    Project "Autonomous" F-350

    No wonder it's dilapidated. They died in there years ago [emoji23]

    Project "Autonomous" F-350

    Ooh shiney! Going to have to track down that Steel It paint here in Oz. Looks the shiz I recently cleaned up a bunch of stuff for my motorcycle using the old molasses bath - if you have trouble tracking down replacement bolts give it a crack for two weeks in a solution of 1/6 molasses...

    Inspiration vehicles: What, if any vehicle do you draw ideas/inspiration from?

    Looking good papawheely! I've been away from the site for ages (new family member) and just had to read 15 or so pages. Like the move to the single cab. Makes sense. Keep up the great work ;)

    Glad you found AULRO useful. Another great site is http://www.discovery2.co.uk/ with plenty of pictures and descriptions to help you out. I've used it heaps.

    Check out aulro.com for solutions to any td5 issue. There is a section called "the good oil" which has solutions to all the common issues (which really aren't that bad). Don't get rid of the rear air springs. It's one of my favourite things about my disco. If properly maintained the sls is...

    2000 110 in the states - unobtanium?

    I've got a nanocom for the electronics side. But that being said I've never had a single electronics engine related issue in many hundreds of thousands of kms in either of my two td5's. They've actually been a much more reliable engine compared to the two 300 tdi's I've also had. The great thing...

    2000 110 in the states - unobtanium?

    Sucks to be you guys! :( The TD5 is the best land rover motor IMHO. It passes the Australian emissions tests even without catalytic converters. It's always amazed me that you can register massive V8's in the states but not small and frugal diesels.

    So Hondarider, how'd the trip go? Please regale us with your witty insights into a middle aged man's adventure on a slightly too heavy bike :P Here's something I found that you might like http://glennmcanally.com/sarcastic/ :)

    Project "Autonomous" F-350

    When you operate these vents papawheely have you got other vents lower down to draw in fresh air? Otherwise they'll suck in air through seals etc. as they'll need to draw air from somewhere. Which is an issue if you are using them whilst driving or in a dusty environment. Specially on dusty...

    Diving in Head First!

    I've been using the ARB deflator for over 7 years without issue. In my opinion they are the best and nearly the quickest of deflators on the market. They are much more accurate than the Stauns in my experience. I used one almost daily on a 45,000 km trip around Australia over 18 months. I never...

    Another Anti-Adventure Road Trip

    Carry one 21 inch tube and tyre irons in a fender bag. You can use a 21 inch tube in a pinch (no pun intended) in an 18 or 17 inch rear but you can't go the other way. 'Tis what I do on my humble (yet better than an xr) dr650. Gets the weight off your back to boot. I too wear a backpack...

    Glad to be that faceless resource :26_7_2: Just so you know I'm not making it up though, here is the info from a manufacturer: Q: Do you add air to Airlift 1000 before adding the load, i.e. how do I level my vehicle? A: Add air to maximum pressure, add the load,*then*release air until the...

    It's important to remember to air the bags up before you add the load, not after. They aren't designed to lift a sagging bum, rather to prevent it sagging in the first place. You are much better off filling them to near max whilst empty and then letting air out to achieve the desired height...

    Another Anti-Adventure Road Trip

    It's only when you turn up at someone's house for that 'help' that things can go from beige-and-boring to something else though. Like if they tell you they have an affinity with knives and that they'd love to be in the military but they failed psychological testing or they ask you to put your...

    The tail of two Discos - which one to get as my first off-roader/overlanding vehicle?

    I own a D2. That D2 is an abomination. What the hell is that thing bolted to the bonnet?:Wow1: Go the D1 if it's as good as it looks. Remember to drive it before you modify it at all. Seriously drive it. It is probably all you'll ever need for 99.9% of off roading anyway. And you won't look...
