    thank you very much Nedge. I donít mean the aluminum cover I mean the actual rubber or carpet that covers the box.

    Decided to try out the tent this weekend at a friends property on the Vaal. It was f#%_€* cold. Went down to -4C and with the wind it was not pleasant.
    Roof top tent works well though and was really comfortable. Very easy to set up and pack up.

    Next up is a spare wheel carrier, remap and I need to figure out what is whistling when the motor is hot and after a highway run. It’s related to engine revs as it goes away when the clutch is pushed in. Probably a pulley or something and only does it after driving at highway speeds- heard it loudest at the toll gate. Any ideas?

    Hi Bruce, Your vehicle is really coming along nicely. Can you give us a bit more detail on the inside of the bakkie area please. I wonder what length the Grenadier Bakkie will be. If it came to SA it would be a worthy contender to the 130 you are building up?Thanks for sharing your developments. They are getting filed away for future reference. My son and I are looking for a future project. He has sold the Land Rover 90 that we rebuilt.

    Don’t think it’s that as when in neutral and rev’ing the motor the sound comes and goes but only when hot. It seems to be rev related and doesn’t change if the clutch is depressed or not.
    There is no noise when normal driving to work or in and around JHB. And when off the highway and driving slowly when all has cooled down it goes away.



    thank you MikevR. What detail would you like? Should I wait until it’s finished or as I progress?

    @Bruce, I actually had the same thing om my 90, drove me nuts.. turned out to be a small hole in the boost pipe, sounded like a winding/spinning sound, especially louder wen driving past high walls and toll gates with the sound bouncing off it..

    no impact on performance as it was still small.

    thank you MikevR. What detail would you like? Should I wait until itís finished or as I progress?[/QUOTE] -----------------------------------I will follow this thread Bruce and let you know - I think wait until project completion then maybe a catalogue by section. By the way on checking the Grenadier Bakkie will have an extended chassis compared to the Station Wagon possibly like your 130.

    thank you. That would make sense. Time for some silicon hoses I think

    If your solo purpose of this vehicle is overlanding, then a second spare on the roof might need to stay

    Is the spare wheel carrier from front runner ? What do you think of quality and ease of opening closing when a spare wheel is on.

    Haven’t got the spare wheel bolts yet so can’t report back but will ASAP.

    i fitted a Mud center console sub box and some Mud “flares” to the rear bottom of the front wheel arches to reduce spray up the front doors. I also fitted mud flaps to the front.
    mud sub box works out well as it makes the center console the perfect height for an arm rest now.

    After this weekends short trip I found an oil leak on the turbo oil feed and while looking at that I found that I have a unichip fitted. I donít like the unichip and have had it removed. Canít believe how much better the Landy drives now.

    interesting.... mine also had a uni-chip hidden away that I removed, mine flew like a jet though, was seriously fast probably due to the oversize turbine... it drives like a normal 2.4 now...

    if you suspect the oil feed pipe, then have it check ASAP, as oil starvation will kill the turbo, sometimes its just the copper washers that needs to be replaced (quick add easy fix)

    Yes was just the copper washes that needed replacing. All sorted now.
    i actually can’t believe the difference in her now. Hills that I used to have to gear down to 5th on I can now maintain my speed in 6th. Perhaps because it came from Nelspruit it was tuned for the lower altitude?

    anyway, fitted the spare wheel. Only thing I don’t like is the wheel touches the body when fully opened. Will fit a stopper of some sort.

    also the mud flaps work well and reduce the spray onto the doors.

    to add, if anyone is looking at buying or selling a Landy I can not recommend Auto Excellence enough.

    Anyone interested in my front Bull bar and bumper? Going to be putting it up for sale.
    Will be removing it tomorrow.
