That sounds great Matt, the only other options I've found are a couple of real sketchy ones off fleabay or one from Brit-car (new old stock rather pricey) but they aren't shipping until ?? The big reason I need to get the '96 on the road is that I have some fairly major stuff to do on the '97, front end, springs, bushings, a bunch of rust issues etc. so I'll probably have it in the shop for a month or so.
I really appreciate this Matt so let me know what you come up with and we'll take it from there.

It won’t have the chance to test one until the weekend but I’ve probably got a good ECU kicking around somewhere. I’d have to mail it, I’m down in Medicine Hat.

Like Matt says, gloss black for the steel and if you're feeling real flush you could anodize the aluminum. When I worked in the aircraft industry we painted the Continental engines - crankcase - continental gold, cylinder barrels gloss black, then anodized the heads, rocker covers and all the ali' on the accessories and replated fixings. Looked real sharp.

Hi Matt, I will check the fuses again as it was a few months ago that I did check them (ya never know, worth a try).
As for the motors sounds quite possible, I'll see if I have an actual connector that will fit and try that.
As for the ecu, I don't suppose you would have a spare you would be willing to part with? I would actually only need the circuit board, the housing is still in the truck. If you do PM me and we'll work out a price etc. And you weren't sounding like a smart arse, it's always worth double checking.
Have a great day,

I got an email earlier today and Lloyd posted a great little video about the lost road to Singapore Oxford vehicle.    The sentiments expressed by the narrator do a good job of identifying what I love about my old, beaten up landy.   Something I fear I will never have with a modern LR.

I can't tell you anything about them I'm afraid. :(
Did you notice how little stuff they put on that roof rack?   But it sure looks sporty.   The roof ladder on one side of the vehicle and that cargo box on the other side.....   Has anyone looked at the sides of my 110?   I'd have to have someone behind me picking up the litter I'm peeling off the truck.

I must admit I’m confused about those side accessories as well. For a start, if you don’t have anything attached to them the vehicle looks like it has an awkward blind spot? And I have no idea why a person would need  tiny suitcase looking thingy and umpalumpa ladder strapped to the side of an off roader? The suitcase will get torn off and the ladder? It’s right over the rear tyre so......why wouldn’t you step on the rear tyre? Unless of course you really are an umpalumpa.
