Shall we do a Land Rover thread?
Only a Disco, but it was at least an SVO Commercial. Still miss the stupid money pit.

Pictured here in a rare moment of there being more water outside it than in.
Welshfarmer, is that photo the bomb hole at Strata Florida? If not it looks suspiciously like it.Posted 1 year agomcmoonterMember
I wish I still had my IIA.
I bought it whilst Orkney from a farmer who lost heart when a frost plug popped out. Thankfully after purchase and inspection the head was unwarped. I replaced the plug and head gasket and all was good again.
The farmer had changed the wings for the Series 3 type in a bid to modernise it. Thankfully he’d saved the grille panel and grille. I found some series 2 wings and returned the headlamps to the centre panel.
I switched the hardtop for one with a double skinned safari roof found in the local paper. It was originally on the Papa Westray airport Land Rover. One end of the worlds shortest scheduled flights. I went back there with the roof on mine and everyone recognised it

Posted these on McMoonters thread, but then spotted this, so there may be some people that i might appreciate the biggest beast they did (I think), 101 Forward Control.

that should be trev. built to look stock at a glance , mildly tweeked 200tdi high turbo from a defender in there with +5 shocks and all associated goodies (arms , moved shock mounts , , flexies and towers , dislocation cones/catchers) with a 2 inch lift sitting on 235/85/r16s on wolfs. ) I do how ever appreciate greately the LED light kit after years of having to **** around with bad connections on the old lucas/wipac units and having the fear of being rear ended to – never having had an issue since.Posted 1 year agoscudMember

She was a bit of a beast, nicknamed “Spanky”, the fuel pump had a bit of a glitch and would just cut out, so we had the pump sitting on top of the engine hatch between the two seats, and each time it cut out it was down to the front seat passenger to hit it with a spanner.
Started life as an ex-army GS model, gradually welded on the roof-rack and made the “swing-aways” to carry two spare wheels, added rack down nearside to take 6 jerry cans and changed the Range Rover 3.5 lump that came in to a Perkins diesel. Great piece of kit and broke my heart when we had to leave it in Cape TownPosted 1 year ago
