As Fridge pointed out earlier today, due to some recent vehicle movements, I now have a space in my garage exactly the right size :unsure:

But with the same ramp brake over and departure but better approach than a 90. :P

But my go-to guy for painting is quite busy these days and I dont think I could get much done until it was painted.

He's probably on a terrorist watch list and not allowed to buy paint anymore either :ph34r:

And I'd have to sell a truck to make spannering room.

Excuses? I got loads of them, they dont take up much space.

(Damn, my 666th post! Could it be an omen?!)

I'm pretty sure your "painting guy" owes you sufficient favours to drop what he has on to paint it for you. We already have a plan hatched to give you spannering room. Your d3 is getting old now.....I can go on....and on too.

So I got brave and showed this to the wife this morning. :ph34r:

Her response: "Not unless you want to be single."

A tempting proposition, but I'd probably get left with the two tiny terrorists which would mean even less (i.e. none) tinker time.

So, that leaves you TSD - rescue it into the LR4x4 family.

Oh sheesh, that's only about 10 miles from me.

TSD, if you are interested I'd be happy to take a pre-emptive look for you :P

If it makes you feel better my wife doesn't like them either. However she said she can't see it when she's inside! ;)

What have they done to achieve the same ramp brake over? Isn't this the tightest angle flat sided bump it can drive over without the vertex touching the chassis?

Edit: Is it just bigger tyres and a lift?

to be honest the different between a standard 90 and a standard 110 isn't really that much

They are designed for 33's but the gearbox and chassis are set higher relative to the suspension mounts. In fact the gearbox doesn't hang below the chassis.

Hmm......

The legal issues getting it in France on plates are just too big..

Also, I doubt the "not Q Plate" bit..

I love them.

The Mrs. was not too upset - she must be getting younger...

I reckon more about 30 minutes

The main block to buying it seems to be money. I have space. Obviously I have time. So tonight I am going to win the lottery, retire, buy this and enjoy life

Just out of interest, how much would this be worth finished? Properly.

Well here's a more common SWB one on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover-Defender-90-Foers-Ibex-300-TDi-LHD-DIESEL-MANUAL-1998-S-/401279401437

So I reckon it would have to be £15k+

There you go HH, visit the bank and tell them there is an investment opportunity.... ;)
