Bit of an update 6 months in

Nothing has fallen off , bongs of death have been key battery low and it's 3 degrees outside

Mot this week, failed , steering gaiter and a link bar on the rear axle , link bar cost £11 and the gaiter was a broken jubilee clip

Now has 12 months test on it

Still loving it

Top work. I won't lie, I'm a tad jealous.

Bet it was worth all the hassle now?

It was worth it, they really are like driving a school bus both in size and cornering ability but it's just so old man comfortable, returns an average of around 25mpg , it wants some cosmetic work which I have planned but the weather has been awful so I haven't gone near it

 

I parked it on the front lawn but it's rained that much it sank , when I tried to get it out it left 2 6" ruts 15ft long, had to get the jetwash out to clean the tyres , much curtain twitching from the neighbours

 

I need a parking place for it so I'm going to buy some gravel grids and dig it out properly

Ha, my old V12 XJ-S sank in the garden and I had to tow it out with my 650 Katana :-)

They were the sticky brakes , £50 for a new caliper isn't extortionate though , got a towbar fitted on it as well , managed to find a used set of electrics as they're a fortune from land rover because it needs an ecu to control the air suspension and reversing sensors
