    I suspect rats/mice chewed the wires and caused a short. Can't think of anything else.

    About R6500. This includes all chassis/ suspension parts in either HDG or zinc spray.
    Also included is chemical cleaning of chassis as it is from 1st year of LR90 production, i.e 1983, and was still dipped in proper paint and wax injected for UK market.

    Installed a secondhand bulbar, winch and spots after a altercation with a reckless renault. Also sorted the auxiliary wiring with some decent fittings and shrink wrap. Still looks a bit like spaghetti but its fused and properly attached spaghetti.

    I need to find a bracket to flip the numberplate over the winch when not is use, anybody know where I can get something like that?

    I made a bracket, from stainless, that clips over the 2 vertical rollers. I made it around 5mm narrower on the height. Works well for me. I will take photo later and send it to you.

    Thanks, I also thought of this but the number plate extends over the high lift jack point. Also prefer the look of a center mounted number plate

    Thanks, unfortunately I don't have rollers. I will revert back with a solution, like the idea of clips.
