We fitted a pair of Britpart Lynx Eye (DA6282) LED headlights to our Defender the other day and the results are no less than spectacular as I think the images below prove:

They are simplicity themselves to fit as they are a direct replacement for the original 7” candle powered lights fitted to the Defender. They plug straight into the original wiring harness so no ballast resistors, connectors or wiring to worry about at all. DSC_0091I do not profess to be a mechanic or auto electrician and managed to fit them myself in under half an hour in the rain so they really can be fitted by anybody anywhere with no more than a Philips screwdriver!

????????????????????????????????????

I was initially worried that they might be so bright that people would be flashing at me all the time because I was blinding them, however, I have had them fitted for almost a week now mostly using narrow country lanes and “B” roads with nobody flashing their lights at me at all so the beam pattern is obviously set up correctly as per the original headlights and they are fully road legal, E marked and MOT tester friendly.

They are built from extremely tough materials with polycarbonate lenses and die-cast aluminium housings, for all you techies out there they give out 2800 lumens on dipped beam and 4450 lumens on high beam and are built up from 8pcs CREE(XML-10W) LEDs.

If I could recommend one product for your Defender then these would be it, I admit that there is a large initial outlay but if you want to see where you are going this winter I really don’t think these can be beaten.

We have just received an exciting new product to our range called RAPTOR, it’s a really tough protective paint coating which can be used on pretty much any surface you can imagine, steel, aluminium, galvanised steel, plastic, concrete and even glass! It can also be tinted to any colour of your choice, with the ability to create smooth and textured finishes.

We tried it out on some tired old parts we had here, a plastic headlamp surround and a bumperette and were really impressed with the ease of use and the finish, I’d be happy to bolt them to my truck now!

It is designed and made in the UK and was originally designed for the US pick-up market so you can guarantee it’s made tough…it has been described by the RAPTOR rep. as stone chip on steroids which after seeing it in action I can totally believe.

It can be used on your Land Rover, tractor, garden machinery, boat or on pretty much any other application or surface you can imagine giving it a long lasting tough, durable coating to protect it for years to come.  It can also be used as a sound deadening material, it can be sprayed on the inside of your doors, roof, bulkhead or under bonnet and will significantly reduce the vibration you get through aluminium and steel when driving making your Land Rover more comfortable and practical for a fraction of the cost of conventional sound proofing materials.

It is resistant to fuel, oil, salt water, heat and is even resistant to horse urine, if you have a horse you’ll be well aware of how caustic it is to the flooring of your box so quite an achievement!

Below are just a few ways RAPTOR could be used on your Landy:

Chequer plate and grills
Loading area
Underbody protection
Bumpers and bull bars
Sills, side rails and steps
Wheels and wheel arches
Part and full vehicle overspray

RAPTOR can be applied with a Schutz Gun, spray gun, roller or brush so a great finish is achievable whatever equipment you have, whether in a field or a professional spray booth. All you need is some scotchbrite to key the surface and some etch primer if applying to bare metal and you’re away.

It is touch dry within half an hour and a second coat can be applied within the hour making it very practical and user friendly.
