  1. Looks truly brilliant 😍 and all that weight will probably straighten the base out 😊😂
  2. I did also wonder about the original petrol dipstick - it’s short and ‘free standing’ so to speak.
  3. I had that - tried a 300 dipstick but it had a different fitting into the block, so wouldn’t work. From memory it was a press-fit O ring. A friend managed to bend the original one into an S shape and get it to work. The bend means you have to twist the stick (at the right time) as you pull it out for it to clear the bend - but it works. There’ll be a picture in my 80” thread if you wanted to look.
  4. It’s looking great 👍🏻 Only the blue boxes are worrying 😊
  5. She loved it - though she looked a little stressed in traffic. 😬
  6. Just had a proper Land Rover adventure: took my mum out laning.. As we got out the end of the last Lane the accelerator pedal lost grip and was just rotating around the rod, with nothing left on the bolt to tighten it up. So I drove 40 minutes back using the ribbon on my dog’s whistle as a hand throttle - passed it through a hole in the bulkhead and cable tied onto the accelerator linkage. The lesson is that it’s bloody hard changing gear whilst using a whistle to accelerate with the same hand - albeit great fun. Made it home safely though with just a bit of erratic driving coming out of junctions. Here’s a short video from before it happened: and a couple more photos taken in my usual parking spot:
  7. I’ve used Brit-Car for a lot of stuff and always been good to deal with 👍🏻
  8. Only my avatar seemed to disappear 👍🏻
  9. Sort of topical for me - My new 200tdi Discovery front crank seal has started leaking - it’s only been in a couple of months 😩
  10. Good news - only thing I’d say is remember it works to share warts and all 👍🏻 Sharing a lack of progress may be a motivator for some people ?
  11. Hang on ...... mobile hot tub for parties ? Is this a new business opportunity?
  12. It does look fabulous ! Make sure the bend doesn’t stop you enjoying all that great work.
  13. If you haven’t got the time ... could you pay someone’s to do it ?
  14. How are you doing George? Your adoring public waits .... 😁
  15. Mine is a lights through the grill model. There are other subtle differences it seems between versions of that S1 type too - I’ve seen them called out on the S1 forum, with people looking to make sure they have the right type for their date of production. Mine had rotted at the bottom - and I’ve seen a few like that. I guess dissimilar metal corrosion starting from where it bolts to the front chassis cross member has a role to play in it too?
  16. I haven’t ..... I daren’t......

  18. And give you a bit more head height too !
  19. I hope the farmer is more reasonable than some I’ve asked .. I’ve seen farmers in Cumbria let things rot into the ground, holding on to them on the basis that ‘they’ll be worth big money one day’ 😢
