    It is great to see how many people out there can actually still build something and help themselves. Well done done to all of you resourceful people. This leads me to the 'Right to Repair' campaign, something I believe should become a massive drive in society to take us away from the discard mentality to one of fix or repair. Many of our vehicle parts are specifically designed so as to be discards, and I think that it is wrong. In fact I think that it should be legislated that manufacturers of goods should have to demonstrate why an item cannot be designed for future repair. Does anyone agree with me?

    Most of us will. But the accountants won't. So what they'll do is make sure a lot of stuff is made REALLY cheaply and will be designed to fail so that you have to repair? All they need to do is qualify those items as Mandatory Service Items, then they can't be taken to court for selling cheap crap.

    I believe this is key to ward off cabin fever. Use what you have on hand. If you are like me you will be astounded by what you actually have. I found a pile of decking off cuts thats been around for ages.

    So SWAMBO insisted she will be my appy on our first project, an indoor planter.She absolutely loved it and canít wait to tackle the next. It sure made the day fly by:


    I installed a 2nd air valve on each of my Disco 4's rims for the tyre pressure monitoring (TPM) sensors. Now I do not have to unlock and unscrew the TPM sensors every time when I want to let down pressure in sand or pump the tyres again afterwards. I used long truck inner tube valve stems and my late dad's BSW taps and dies to thread the valve stems and the holes that I had to drill into the alloy rims. Sealed it with a bit of silicone based gasket sealer. Previously also did it on my Defender and Echo Kavango's rims and it works perfectly !

    Had these offcut pine (I think) planks for almost a year.

    Wanted to create a woodcabin rustic effect in the bedroom on the one wall.

    Also got gatvol of the small bedside tables with barely any space on it and started making some shelves also of pine.

    I don't know why the frekkin pics rotates when uploading and I'm too stupid to fix it.

    Next job would be to hide and reroute the electrical and lan cables behind the wooden wall.

    I am finishing diy door post rebuild with my limited ability to weld on my series 3 Landy. While vehicle stood during fitting nissan RD 28 series2 engine door posts rusted . Decided to diy door post but needed adjustment to align doors better. Test drive with rd engine saw clutch pressure plate failing to disengage fully . Removed engine modified pivot pin length. Now Working well. Keeping 2.25 series petrol engine just in case. I did complete engine conversion from 2.25 petrol to diesel rd28 myself . PS.I am an electronics tech
