    p38 sagging material repair

    You could possibly put a very small incision into the lining and insert a plastic straw off a can of penetrating fluid and attatch that to some spray adhesive I have used this method in the past and worked ok for me Regards Stephen

    Need advice on finding the right vehicle

    Any Defender within your price range would suit most of your requirements and as before mentioned even in standard form they are very capable off road, I have had my lightweight ( obviously not a Defender ) since I first started off roading and back then it was better than my ability, as my skills improved my need to drive certain sections became greater than my vehicles ability so then I started modifying. I guess what I'm trying to say is you don't need all singing and dancing yet so I would advise buying the best condition standard vehicle you can afford and learn to live and grow with it modifying as your skills improve. If you want all the gear from scratch you will be less of a skillful driver in the long run as the machine will make up for lack of ability but if your patient and develop the driving skill once you start modifying you will go furthe.r I was once at an all makes promotion day on the North Yorkshire moors and Landrover had one of their drivers there in a bog standard 90 and he went everywhere the others could'nt plenty of capable vehicles there but not plenty of capable drivers and that made the difference. Regards Stephen

    Air Portable Utility 1/2t S3

    I totally agree with that sentiment Bowie69 had my S3 Lightweight for 30 odd years and it will take me to my final resting place also have a 2a Lightweight that I started and never completed will be a nice retirement project eventually Enjoy it Maverick they become addictive. Regards Stephen
  8. My guesstimate would be about 850 miles depending upon where Arjan lives in the Auvergne !

    RRC Rear Prop Fitting

    Have had to run a Disco with rear prop missing for a short period should manage it no problem bu you will need center diff locked to ensure it will drive at the front axle Regards Stephen
  15. So sorting out the mods for Arjan's roof this week. I have spoken to one of the young guys I work with who competes in motocross events throughout the UK and he is prepared to transport the roof section southwards as far as I'm aware he competes in Wales and at some point later in the year down at Portsmouth . He is away for a couple of weeks at the moment but when he gets back I will post a list of venues he is racing at and hopefully a forum member will be able to meet and collect roof section to help it further South. Will keep you posted Regards Stephen
