    A cautionary tale

    doesn't look critical and Turners have a good reputation from what I've seen over the years. I'd send them the pictures, hopefully they'll revisit their packaging methods and/or hand out a clip round the lug'ole for the yoof that wrapped it up. Will 🙂

    Newbury Sortout 7th April 2019

    Very tempted to dash up, I need a few bits and bobs for the 110 🙂 It'd be good to catch up with a few old faces too Will 🙂

    My 90 its a love hate thing - I love it - it hates me :(

    I took mine in for MOT the Thursday before Good Friday. Got it back on the road today! it needed a swivel adjusting ,one bush doing and a couple of electrickery niggles. The Garage were busy and I made the mistake of saying 'no hurry'... :-o Will :-) PS: sorry to here of the domestic troubles Nige, chin up old chap...

    Main Vehicle Insurance (oh no another Insurance post)

    They phoned me and changed their minds :-) Will :-)

    Main Vehicle Insurance (oh no another Insurance post)

    Never using Adrian Flux again after they quoted me 'the best possible price I'd get' 'as a valued existing customer on my sons 50cc moped. I did an online comparison search after and they were the 2nd cheapest at £300 less than they quoted me over the phone. Yes I did phone them and write to them telling them what I thought about that. :-) Sureterm came up with the goods in the end, £150 so the 110 is back on the road :-) Will

    Main Vehicle Insurance (oh no another Insurance post)

    Sureterm have quoted £150 with no business use. Bloody madness this insurance lark. What difference does it make if I am driving to a job or driving to the shops? Surely 5000miles a year is 5000miles a year, where I am going has no bearing on it does it? Will :-/
  7. Eeeek, I'm running into Insurance issues! My 110 is my main vehicle, so far I've tried: Heritage - Can't Insure modified LRs as Main Vehicles anymore Admiral - Won't touch Roll Caged vehicles NFU - Haven't got back to me yet... Adrian Flux - Never using them again after they took the Pi55 over my sons moped insurance. Who else uses their Modified Defender as main vehicle and who do you use? Will :-)

    Venturing off road again.......

    Seriously Bish, forget D2s, I have seen too many fall to bits structurally, they rot from the inside too so they look fine one minute and are shot full of holes the following morning with no warning. I do love P38s, both mine have been troublesome to the point of being annoying. They are brilliant but it'll let you down far too much. My advice? find a really smart D1 V8, you'll never lose a bean on it now unless you go daft and roll it. Will :-)

    Security locks

    It used to be like that here but we seem to have allowed 'the wrong sort' to move into the village. I have a feeling they will be leaving soon though ;-) Will :-)

    Security locks

    After some scumbag stole my £13 Chinese radio from my 110 last night I have found myself pondering door locks. Obviously the standard fayre is laughable (my key opened over 50% of the other defenders outside our local one night). I have seen a few Expedition Defenders fitted with deadlocks, has anyone done this and what did you use? Will :-)

    Newbury Sortout

    I was hoping to but late paying clients, imminent trip to the Alps and the sea looking like its giving us an opportunity to relaunch our lovely Lugger have put pay to that. :-/ Shame because I could really do with a new radiator, intercooler and to restock on service stuff like filters. Will :-)

    ICE thoughts

    I went for a £14 Chinese Bluetooth radio in the end. Supposed to be 4x60w output, no idea if it is. The sound is fairly shocking to be honest and its already blown one of my front Maystar pod speakers, they have been in the 110 since just after I bought it 17years ago so I can't complain really. At least the hands free bit seems to work. Will :-)

    Petrol engine conversion

    Any excuse, you'll be sacrificing virgins to appease the God that created the 200tdi engine before long in the hope he restarts production. Anyway, back on track, I've just looked at the torque curve for my 1.5Mini Cooper....ummm, I wonder what a tuned Cooper S Works engine would sound like in my 110?... :-) Will

    One To One

    He came and did a talk at a place I designed a few years ago, jolly interesting tale the Darien Gap Adventure :-) I was driving a 2 door Range Rover back then and kicked myself I didn't get a photo of him in it or got him the sign the car somewhere. Will
