  1. I only found out recently these are proper body on frame when I saw just the chassis and running gear of one for sale on marketplace
  2. In the past I've kept all my classics out over winter. However last year my Trev being fibreglass developed acne. Apparently water can get inside and expend when it freezes causing lots of microbubbles. I rent a garage but the floor feels wet so reluctant to keep anything in it over winter as I can't imagine that'll do underneath any good. Would putting some waterproof membrane laid on too and parking on that help do we think?
  3. That's exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for, where abouts is it? Just caught up on your thread, how are you finidng the Insa turbos on the road? Mines a V8 with ACE delete but still on bags. The engine is super smooth but the ride is a little bouncy. My friend has just got a td5 auto on airbags with the ACE and it rides noticably more flat. Both super comfy seats and driving position but I recon the td5 gives more of a true Land Rover experience. Definitely needs a remap though
  4. Will deffo give you a shout if I'm that way! And love the RRC. They're a dream car of mine but suspect the Disco 2 is as close as I'll get to owning one with prices the way they are now sadly
  5. Coventry way but don't mind travelling to find some good lanes. Haven't found anything close by so far
  6. That would be great thanks! Will give you a shout next time I head out!
  7. That looks great! Where about did you go? I'm probably not going to go for anything that extreme with mine. Pretty much just a set of tyres and a bumper for now
  8. After getting a Dizco 2 off here recently I've started to get into green laning. I think there are a few other perverted souls on here with aging Land Rover products who a partial to some mud plugging so thought I'd start a thread for any tip/tricks or green lane recommendations. So far I've only done Ramsden Road with it completely stock and it handled it absolutely fine. If anyone is around the west midlands or south Yorkshire way let me know if you'd be up for going out some time!
  9. I think I'm one of the few people on here that hates their mk8 Civic. Haven't found it any more reliable than anything else tbh and the ride is gash. My usual answer to this is mk4 Astra with the 1.7 diesel although it's harder to find a good one nowadays or 3.0 legacy if mpg isn't an issue
  10. I think I actually like this... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/175445479859?mkevt=1&mkcid=1&mkrid=710-53481-19255-0&campid=5338817149&toolid=10050&customid=DANSWORKAROUND2&ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F710-53481-19255-0%2F1
  11. This really is a cracking looking RR in that colour with the green leather, proper understated. My mate is going to miss it but already put a deposit down on a D2 which is getting delivered tomorrow
  12. Could I call first refusal if you eventually move the Jag on please 🙂?
