    There’s a lot you can do to keep them safe. I was tempted to sell and get a new disco but as you say. They’re even more problemous than a disco.
    To be fair, I cheated. I paid someone to finish it.
    I tow with it

    Yes, they did a very good job. Not sure about LRO though.

    I did, I didn’t put a new fan in thoh. Looked like the fan broke because of water damage and or the foam seal looked to be touch it slightly, potentially causing it to labour and melted the motor.

    I was wondering what the selfie was all about then I saw the door handle and that blew me away. What an amazing finish!

    Looks gorgeous! Well done!!

    I had the pleasure of seeing this stunning looking landy in the flesh today. Full credit to Kim. You think it looks smart from the pics it looks awsome. The colour is lovely when the sun light catches it.

    Little Lou is still going strong. Haven’t had him out for quite a while because I have a second vehicle now but I love it. A few odd jobs to sort still. One of which being a rad I (potentially). It’s lasted well, I always said to myself when I need to replace it I’ll buy an aftermarket intercooler as well, lets see how big we can go :D. Then maybe get the engine set up well over the summer.

    you did a great job of it.
    Certainly worth the hours and hours of pain when you see it in the flesh.
    That colour just looks awesome when the sun light catches it.

    Doing a shed build to start with then the garage, that is all the wood for the shed which is 3x4m. I wasn’t going to bother posting about it.
