    Discovery4/LR4 3rd row seat conversion

    as I sometimes use the 3rd row seats and don't want to swap these in and out when going to or coming from a trip, I was thinking about another solution for specifically a watertank, by utilizing the space of the 3rd row footwell and under the 2nd row seats. would be a custom GRP solution I...

    budget drawer built

    small but important tweak today: now I can still get to the spare wheel winch without moving the cases. it has a 22mm hex drive like the wheel studs. used a 22mm 3/8" socket, adapter to 1/4" and a 100mm extension, that JUST fits in between the 3rd row seats.

    budget drawer built

    made from 10mm plywood and self-locking slides. frankly I need to admit that it looks like a prototype. just roughly painted, no handles etc., tie down eyes and connecting bolts for both casings are still to come. if the first field test is a success, casings might receive an anthracite...

    1-burner camp stove

    actually I'm not LOL :D but I learned car mechanic as a job ages ago, learned welding too (though not aluminum). hence why I love working with real stuff from time to time. I know (at least I read) that there is a partner steel 1 burner stove around. but it is so hard to get them over the...

    1-burner camp stove

    thank you. I ordered it from a metalworking company via ebay. it's 2mm aluminum (wind protection is too) and corners are welded. pretty sturdy. it's even thick enough to drive threads into the bottom for attaching the burner with M5 bolts.

    1-burner camp stove

    folks, another quick one. on our last trip through norway we found out, that our two-burner stove was a bit too much for just the two of us. on the other hand, the typical china or trucker one-burner stove sold with the plastic case is absolutely unsuitable, as it neither allows simmering, nor...
