  1. best Crouch wagon is the one where the sign writers got it so in a side on view you opened one of the lockers and it read 'ouch Recovery'
  2. looks like a motorbike battery ... commonly used in cheap and dirty emergency start solutions on emergency vehicles rather than second full sized battery
  3. back up 'one shot' start battery ?
  4. 3.5 V6 Frontera II response vehicle spec with a fuel card ... and livery that was ambiguous as feck to front and rear ... and a very clearly blue light bar ...
  5. indeed US size plates and the tacked on under the bumper rear fog very strongly suggests import
  6. aren't they foot on hand off ? used to drive Vito Incident support Vehicles for a volunteer emergency services role and they had foot on hand off parking brakes ... the main change there was you had to modify ' the system' to go neutral > handbrake when you came to a stop rather than handbrake >neutral as the system teaches ... that said the thud as you pulled the release lever was something which took getting used to
  7. sort of aimed at the renault scenic market , however given that VW had the Touran ? ( the 7 seater Zafira competitor) at the time it;s a bit salami slicing
  8. hardly it;s a tray back P100 ...
  9. probably a 'flower car' but specced as retail vehicve rather than for sale into the funeral trade to match Hearse and Limos
  10. the LR 2.5 - even right up to the 300Tdi is a development of the 2.25 the classic Rangie and SD1 diesels were a brought in VM unit ... it wasn;lt until the discovery 1 and the very late Classic Rangies with 20) or 300 Tdi engines that it was the 'same engine' by which point LR and rover cars were well on the path to divorce
  11. even if not being cheeky with cherry , quite a lot of farms do bunker white especially if they run LGVs
  12. given D1 and D2 like the classic Rangie are body on frame it;s relatively easy to do this
  13. 8 v 1.6 ? once those engines start havign cam problems it can be fairly terminal, i know a couple of mechanics i've spoken to over the years have commented ' spent more than a few of them over the bridge' just not worth trying to fix them once they reach banger age ... suggestion beign it was an overstretch of what was fundmentally a 1970s engine design ...
  14. the cooker feed is likely a 30 / 32 amp spur from the DB so that would be fine , as it's outside RCD and 60309 command o plugs for full pukka ness
