Ireland 2000 Defender 110 Td5 HCPU Coniston Green
110 300tdi CSW ReBuild

So it begins again Wink .....as the 300tdi 110 Hard Top has now gone to a new home, rebuild tread here-

https://www.defender2.net/forum/topic39192.html

I took a punt on this on ebay, bought it without seeing it, will soon be making her way home across the Irish sea, always a concern buying unseen but its got a Richards Chassis and engine has only 55k...can't be too bad can it ??

Good for you Nidge, Looks like a really solid example to take forward.

Christmas holidays are always a great time to clough up the kitchen with Defender bits.

Will be looking forward to the build reports with the usual attention to detail. Thumbs Up

where did I see that advertised? Shame to see projects get the door half way sadly. Nice one on taking a punt on it. Defender TD5 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

Yep thats the one, I bid on it twice and was outbid....only for it to come backup for sale again as a classified !!

First impressions overall its not too bad - Decent engine, gearbox, chassis and drive train, needs a bulkhead, doors need sorting and power steering pipework is leaking.
Then all the usual wear stuff like drive flanges, wheel bearings, half-shafts etc. I reckon if I put about £5k into it should sort it....

Lots to do.....Now where to start Question

Made a start today, decided to start with the back axle and work my way forward -

Removed rear axle for overhauling and all the other rusty parts, I can never understand how anyone can attach rusty old parts to a nice clean Galvanised chassis Confused
