110 swing away spare wheel carrier

I'm looking for a swing away spare wheel carrier for my Defender. If any member has one for sale I would be very interested. Failing that, can anyone recommend a locally available model or a fabricator who could make one. I am located in the Kootenays. Many thanks for any responses.

Re: Vancouver Island Rally In the Valley June 7,8,&9 2019

Hi, Unfortunately, we shall not be able to attend the June rally. Our 110 is, literally, in hundreds of pieces as we're doing a ground up reno. We're just about to start re-assembly, so maybe we'll be able to attend next year's event. We wish you all a very enjoyable weekend. All the best, Mike and ...

Re: Head light bulbs

I made my own wiring loom with relays and fuses all mounted on a board fixed to the inner edge of the driver's side wing. I'll be very interested to get a user update on the LED bulbs. At one stage I considered fitting Trucklites and addressing the snow problem by fitting headlamp washers and wipers...

Re: Series II/IIA body panels

Now GONE - for free. Glad to have saved irreplaceable items from the dump.

But I still have six steel wheel rims for anybody who needs new wheels. They are 16" not 15", as I originally advertised, based on what the donor told me. I just want to save them also from the dump.

Re: TDI - Fuel additives and Injector cleaners

I suspect that fuel additives fall into the same category as lube oil additives.

I guess that puts them with snake oil and other...
