I spotted both of them a few years ago and enquired about buying them, the farmer said he would sell the beige one but was using the blue one but now the blue one is knackered he will sell me both of them. I think I will buy both and try making a good one from both of them.

They are both pretty knackered but hopefully they will provide some decent spares for my other one. I took some videos too so will try and piece them all together later.

"Will it start?"

*starter halfheartedly turns twice and dies*

"Fuuuuuuck. That'll be no then"


That Ranger repair was exquisite. Didn't want to weld though did it?


The Subarus don't even look too bad, considering they're farm hacks...

I was expecting it to start no bother, I had just removed the battery from the diesel w123 which I had running 5 minutes previously and fitted it to the ranger.

There were a number of factors as to why it wasn't welding particularly well, the earth connection was poor, it was rusty and the metal I was trying to stick together varied in thickness so it wasn't arcing very well or was blowing holes in the thinner bits.

The rest of the ranger isn't pretty so I wasn't all that bothered about trying to do a good job or make it look nice.
