Cheers Craig. We are hoping to make it up for the Sunday, the rest of that weekend I have a friends retirement do. The MDF thing is something I am also doing but putting a drawer underneath( well that's the plan) ref the battery the only worry I have. Putting it inside will it not produce fumes when charging?

Not sure about fumes. Defender batteries are located in the cabin under the passenger seat if that's any indication  confused

Don't bother spending daft money on an Optima for an auxilary battery, it's just not worth the money.

I know a lot of guys who use Numax for starting and auxilary.

NUMAX 110ah Leisure/caravan/boat Battery - XV31MF CXV

I use one as the main truck battery and have two as auxilary batteries - even though it's a deep cycle leisure battery, it's performed well under the bonnet as the main battery for starting and front winch.

The seller I've linked to was just about the cheapest for these batteries at the time I bought my last pair last summer.

And good to see some thought being put into the holiday  pirat 
I seem to remember a post from our glorious leader, may he reign for ever  Hail Hail Hail Hail Hail , that this event was not a holiday. Are they trying to hide something from us mere peasants?  scratch 
I have now replaced the radiator and fan, just need to get some LED's and jobs a good en Very Happy

Keith, you're getting a bit soft with these rally crews! Very Happy 

Maybe you're lulling them into a false sense of security cos the Rally ain't a holiday, no way, no how, never  Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

New for 2014 Jan - we're supplying deck-chairs and knotted handkerchiefs for use in the 24/7 sunshine that is guaranteed. Evil or Very Mad  And of course, a children's entertainment team for the quiet times during the day. Evil or Very Mad  Yes, I suppose I'm getting soft - but of course, will remain as helpful as ever  Evil or Very Mad

Quiet Times? Now let me think back..... confused Nope that does not ring any bells with me  scratch . I fear that our Glorious Leader may be Ill, first he gives The Organisers Favorite Team to a unit that shall not be named and now he is suggesting that there might be quiet time.  Drunk  confused  I think Gill and the Doc should make a house call and check him out Twisted Evil

Getting there. All my oil, filters etc arrived so a day in the workshop. Managed to break the radiator bleed pipe to the header tank, so bit of gaffer tape sorted that to get it to the parts man and on the way to Barnstaple (10 miles) there was a bang, black smoke and no revs!!! Sad No problem just another piece of pipe!! So new bleed pipe fitted (5 mins) and new turbo to intercooler pipe fitted (½ hour!!). Talk about awkward when the engines hot. Still all done and hoping that things going in threes is a myth.

Service completed. New steering damper, fresh brake and PAS fluid, oil + both filters changed, fuel filter changed, oil levels checked in trannys and axles. Brake pads renewed 3 months ago, so plenty of meat. Oh and gave Ngiri her annual wash!!

Front & rear diff drive pinion oil seals
Transfer box rear output oil seal & handbrake shoes
Front & rear propshaft uj's & rubber donut
Front & rear springs & shocks (2" lift)
New extended brake hoses front & rear
New tyre for the spare
G/box, transfer box, engine & diff oil change
New discs & pads on the front
Fit centre diff-lock cable & lever

All the above done, but..................

Had to have a new clutch & dual mass flywheel, a new rear crank oil seal, a new sump gasket, a new steering box, 2 patches of welding hiding on the chassis rails behind the rear springs, new injector wiring loom  Sad 

Hopefully that'll be it  Rolling Eyes
