Britpart have recently introduced a new range of heavy duty galvanised chassis for Defender 110 Td5 and 300Tdi vehicles.

kvd500730hd

They are manufactured to original plans with 3, 4 and 8mm steel and thicker steel is used in high stress areas rather than lamination meaning the chassis is considerably stronger in those areas.

The frame is then hot galvanised which a quality durable finish, they are then fitted with additional inspection holes in the legs etc so the chassis can be cleaned out and or easily waxoyld to give long term protection.

If you are interested in giving your Defender a new lease of life then please give us a call on 01626 833848 or email us on info@brookwell.co.uk and we will get back to you.

As you can probably tell the Ice Warrior doesn’t get used in anger for serious off roading or winching duties very often so when we got an emergency call from the boss the other day requesting it’s presence to winch a wood chipper up a 45 degree slope I didn’t need asking twice! We grabbed some recovery gear i.e winch pulley block (WIN7750), tree strop (ZBS1817) and two bow shackles (ZBS2073) to aid in the recovery.

Ice Warrior Winching 5

Firstly we placed the tree strop around the tree so as not to damage it with the winch rope and placed the 4.75T tested bow shackle through the loops so we could attach the Superwinch pulley block.

Then we ran the rope up the hill, through the pulley block and back down to the chipper. Although the chipper didn’t look very big it was definitely heavy enough that you wouldn’t want to push it up a 45 degree slope so the winch was a very welcome accessory!

Ice Warrior Winching 2

Needless to say the Superwinch Talon 9,500lb (WIN1695211) winch fitted with plasma rope pulled it up the hill with ease, in fact I’m not even sure it knew it was there!

The winch impressed me so much that I had to buy one myself! I have bought the Superwinch Tiger Shark 9,500lb to fit into my Defender winch bumper so please see our next blog for a full fitting guide.

Days after the last product news from Exmoor Trim, we’ve just received more – and very exciting news at that! Brand new Premium Modular Front Seats to fit Land Rover Defenders based on the styling of the commemorative LXV model.

Most Defenders live a hard life, chugging away on farmland, rally courses, plantations, icy peaks and everything in between, but a lucky few live the life of Riley. And for those, these premium modular seats are the perfect addition from the world’s leading Land Rover trim manufacturer – Exmoor Trim. These seats come at a price that their luxury and style befits, starting at £855 +VAT each.

These are available in the range listed here with the bespoke tailored Leather finish of the Exmoor Trim Signature range. All seats are available with the option of Exmoor or OEM heaters and pneumatic lumbers for added comfort. They come with a large rear pocket and, as standard, removable base for access below the seat.”

These seats are handmade to order and therefore there would be a delay on any any order placed to delivery as these high class products are made by Exmoor’s fine craftsmen and women.

It’s been a while since we caught up with James, our man who has set out to create his dream Defender – a County with a TD5 engine and a remit of “No more rust“. And seeing as we’ve recently sent him out a load more Land Rover parts we thought it was time for an update…

If you missed the first edition, you can find it by clicking here

And where better to start than with his fantastic looking galvanised chassis from one of our suppliers which is surely the dream purchase for and Landy Lover – and fully personalised to specifications, too.

The dream of any Landy restorer, a galvanised chassis

And if you thought it looked great when untreated, you’re in for a treat with the picture below which shows James’ rust-beating chassis with a sharp paint job looking great in the British sunshine. “The chassis is a lovely piece of kit, and first hand I can tell you that it all fits and lines up perfectly so far. It was T-washed and self etched primed, then painted in Jotun conceal a marine based paint.” James explains.

Once the Landy had been stripped down (as seen in part one) and the paint had gone on the chassis it was time to reassemble Andy the Landy and get stuck into the best part of any project – seeing it come back to life – exactly how you want it.

James said, “Andy is now back on his wheels (pics below) with fuel lines in place and brake lines to the front, the only hitch so far was putting the central cross member in place the wrong way round!!” We all make mistakes from time to time but surely James can be forgiven once you’ve seen how good his front Terrafirma Springsshockstubular turrets and securing rings look along side his shiny calipers and discs. 

The Defender 90 rebuild is at a perfect height to inspect the shocks and discs

And James explained that they really caught the eye of passers by and visitors before the wheels went on, as they were perfect eye-line height as he was working on them as shown above, you can see the Cross-grooved and drilled discs from Allmakes 4×4.

So here we are at the moment, as you can see above is the front of the rebuild, with the Terrafirma steering damper and wheels proudly on display, and below is the rear view.

And what are the next steps for Andy the Landy? “Engine and gearbox should go in soon then exhaust, and rover drive. Have put the new flywheel and clutch. Just cleaning up the engine and box and fitting new coolant hoses of which Dan sourced the last one this morning.” James explains.

So keep checking back to see further progress on this build as we’re starting to get into the exciting bit now! What colours will James opt for? What other accessories will be put on? Will he hit his target of September?

Next time we can reveal that the gearbox is in, exhaust is on and James has been having fun with the TD5’s wiring loom.
