    Pictures of 90’s with 265/75/16 mud terrains

    Directional tyres have to come off the rims to rotate them properly, that’s why most don’t bother !
  3. Just read the tail end of this thread then went on YouTube and hey presto , what should pop up but a retropower video of the Gordon Murray escort , I have one word , WOW 😮

    Vinyl Wrapping

    Just to add that I love the rat look , or an earned patina

    Vinyl Wrapping

    Not having a dig at the OP but fake patina is horrible , fake vinyl wrap patina is even worse . I would think a sympathetic respray of the doors and bulkhead would be much better , you could even flat them back to the desired fade ?

    The closer you look, the worse it gets

    Funny ain’t it , what some people like and others don’t and no ,I’m not defending it but somebody has stuck all that stuff on there , stood back and presumably thought “perfect” 🤪 I’ve seen pictures of it before and I’m guessing it’s just a show motor with every single accessory possible glued on to show what a particular firm make or stick but Jesus it’s fugly

  11. Yes is the short and simple answer
  12. I have been informed today of a well known local Land Rover thief having had a visit from a few fed up locals , apparently bones were broken ! I won’t give names or locations but I was glad to hear it .

    The EBay Christ I fancy that 4x4 + its cheap thread

    They really shouldn’t be selling vehicles on the evidence of that one 😬

    Tyres .. advice please

    Hi Keith , as far as I’m concerned you can’t go wrong with a set of BF Goodrich all terrain’s , standard fitment is 235/85/16 but you can go wider, they will get you to 99% of the places you will ever want or need to go .

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    We all know Land Rover has lost its way regarding REAL off roaders. As capable as the current models are off road they are not reliable enough in a real world ,continuous off road situation, Christ they’re not reliable enough in a real world ON road situation! Toyota still make a no frills proper off roader , Land Rover Dont .

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    Be it good or bad you can be damn sure I won’t be able to afford a new Defender so I’m very “meh” on the whole thing and if it’s anything like the rest of the current Land Rover range ,which is very likely , then I wouldn’t want one anyway . Just my two bit opinion .

    So what did you get

    A Lovely Milwaukee Fuel 18v 5ah Cordless drill, must have been the sledgehammer sized hints I kept dropping and as a bonus the carry case it came in was slightly damaged so the supplier sent another one foc so I now have a carry case for my 4.5 inch Milwaukee grinders as well 👌🏻

    ibex 300 build

    Loving the Ibex mike , always a good looking vehicle ,as for tyres blow the extra cost of fuel and stick with the 35’s ,leave sensible for your old age !
  20. Modify the transmission tunnel to take the disco gear stick ,you lose the middle seat but gain a nicer more positive (err a bit more positive anyway ) gear change and lose the big pudding bowl stirrer . I fitted a 200 tdi and lt77 from a disco into my 110 , used the disco handbrake as well , doesn’t take much to make it fit and look nice , James

    TRX4 RC Anyone got one

    It’s definitely a Land Rover then !

    Invisible Defender

    You should try driving a tractor on UK roads , some of the overtakes I’ve been subjected to would make you scream , I’ve had to force myself to stop getting so animated about it , deffo time for a dash cam . Personally I think it’s long overdue that everyone takes a re test every 5 or 10 years , I have been driving tractors on the road for 26 years , cars for 25 , motorbikes for 25 and wagons for 21 years and the standard of driving has fallen massively, no doubt helped by the complete lack of police cars on the road , drivers just hammer it between speed cameras , no worries about being caught drink or drug driving as long as you don’t flash a camera ! My time spent as a motorcycle instructor is definitely what keeps me alive on the road ,treat everyone as if they are trying to kill you ! What other licence can you get at 17 that is valid until you die without a single re test or even a check up ? Crazy . And no I don’t think I’m perfect either
