Mulling over one of these for some wire cables ~ struggling to see the difference from the cheapest Amazon ones for around £30 and some specialist suppliers asking £120.

What one did you go for, and any comments on the choices?

I bought a cheap one from eBay a couple of years ago to help with making up wiring for a split charge arrangement. For £23 I really couldn't fault it. Probably not suitable if using these things is your day job but for the occasional DIY project it's brilliant.

United Kingdom 2010 Defender 110 Puma 2.4 XS CSW Santorini Black

spent 5 mins of my lunch break at work temporarily bodging the middle row driver side lower door seal back on with double sided tape as all bar two of the retaining pegs simultaneously decided to commit suicide this morning.

Sikaflex beckons tomorrow.

United Kingdom 2011 Defender 90 Puma 2.4 HT Orkney Grey

Fitted my ORE wheel carrier today.

Sorted my xmember yesterday

Got everything ready, I love a box full of bits!


Click image to enlarge


Easy bit first - even the door card was straightforward

Some wriggling, faffing and twisting my arm to impossible angles later

Despite what ORE say in the instructions, the fiddly bit wasn’t too fiddly and it was fairly quick to get adjusted. The most difficult bit was getting the Censored spare back on.

Job’s a good ‘un Thumbs Up

It’s a nice bit of kit, straightforward to fit and with a new back door seal, my back end feels brand new Very Happy

England 2012 Defender 110 Puma 2.2 X-Tech LE Orkney Grey

Finally got round to getting her in the garage for a new clutch and slave. Poor thing had been sat since September and with the lockdown sunshine grew a bit of mould on the steering wheel and seatbelts seemingly overnight.

Am looking forward to being back on the road with it tomorrow. Had lost a bit of passion for her but think i'm getting it back to finish bits off. Milestone ===================================

I wonder how many special tools the the average defender owner has in their shed! Laughing

Probably a lot as most owners do more mechanical and practical things than just Land Rovers. I bet most people have ones they have made for a special task or difficult situation, I know I have. 👍 1997 110 Hi-Cap Keswick Green

it can become a bit obsessive though ? I know I once considered buying a very expensive 3d printer so i could make a 30p plastic cap that broke off (typical LR they don't sell the cap separate from the loom and you needed the hands of a two year old and the agility of a jedi to get it off )when i was moving the power cable to fuse box inside the truck. Swimbo got wind and i was sent to bed without my tea ...that cap still annoys me today Embarassed
