    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’ 😢

    Judging by this thread I’d say we had no idea what it was going to look like ?

    They look like half a quad bike - fantastic. Yamaha experimented with 2wd in the 90’ iirc - that was hydraulic drive though.

    One for sale in the UK.... https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F283469464879 Super cool thing - how does the drive to the front wheel cope with the turning of the forks ?

    I wondered about the cappings and Patina - one way round would be to strip it back to the frame and pipework and have the whole lot galv’d ... when it weathered in it would go with the patina and look like the original Landy palette 🎨

    It’s a fabulous piece of work 😊 My workshop is too small and too bumpy 😊

    Modern safety, Japanese reliability, beam axles, good ground clearance, 3 link suspension, great approach and departure angles? Jimmy anyone ? From their website you can kind of imagine what Land Rover’s could have been if they’d gone for a professional market: https://cars.suzuki.co.uk/new-cars/jimny/

    Damn - but for a turbo I was there !

    Look what I brought home last night ..

    It’s fantastic on the lanes; I might trim the U bolt threads flush with the nuts - they are a bit long and catch on the rocks, but it’s fabulous All that torque and nice low gears works really well. What’s quite strange is - obviously the 200tdi doesn’t have an anti-stall like the Td5 I normally drive, but with so much torque and so little weight to load the motor it works with no pedal pretty much just the same. So many line choices too 😊 Drum brakes were pretty scary after coming out the river though 😮

    Look what I brought home last night ..

    Only a couple of photos - but first laning trip for a family picnic today. This section of the lane has just been repaired 😊 £8k worth of stone has transformed it from a giant clay pit, that I had trouble winching the 90 out of, into (what feels like) a small car park half way along the lane. Not just us enjoying the repairs: nice river to ford at the bottom: and a spot to park on the other side for lunch

    The accelerator rod looks nice and simple - quite a potent looking spring there too 😊 Are you planning any sound proofing anywhere ?

    You’re doing a fabulous job💖 Only thing I can’t understand is, with you cracking on at such a pace with this, why wasn’t your 90 finished 18 months ago 😮 😊👍🏻
