  1. It was a good turn out , some impressive bits of kit there .
  2. Had a quick kite at it myself at Goodwood today , all the time listening to some sexy young beards getting horny over it , I think it was the same herd of pretty young things getting wet when it went up the hill , not sure if they appreciated my mumblings although to be fair I was also moaning about the price of the feckin beer at the same time . On a brighter note , the Twisted stand was impressive but not as impressive as the Army lads hoofing around the forest rally track in some standard 90s who took the time to have a natter to my young grandson , hats off to them .
  3. I think you younger types will find that there's nothing wrong with a soft knob in an off road vehicle or maybe the home environment as larger harder knobs often lead to unfortunate and unforeseen accidents
  4. For what its worth I replaced my wiper system with Bearmach parts a two of years back and all is still good , must agree with Retroanaconda , bit of a shat system .
  5. At least Land Rover will make it as easy to steal as the outgoing Defender , all the local smack heads will have to do is buy a box of tricks from Ambay or Ezon to trick the electronics into unlocking and start it without getting their hands dirty
  6. Maybe the Stop- Go pedal thing was a Freudian slip by the young hip design W ⚓'s of the new Defender aimed fairly and squarely at the likes of us old died in the wool owners who've been airing our views
  7. Wernt Land Rover buggering about with a leccy Defender a couple of years back
  8. Roger Clarke , twin 40s , jumpers as goal posts ,etc , etc . Ive just made an awful mess
  9. Just a foot note to the above , my Mrs has just reminded me that the Lotus Cortina argument was closer to 40 years ago and that I had also got stung buying a 1600 GT Mk 2 Cortina that turned out to be a complete shed of S*** and wasn't a GT at all just a standard Mk 2 with a GT dash
  10. Just to chuck my hat in the ring , I think its always been this way . Around 30 years ago I turned down a real Mk1 Lotus Cortina , ally doors, the works , for £800 because my girlfriend at the time ( now the current Mrs Kerby) wanted a Capri , I paid the same money for a M1 AVO Mexico six months later , both of these cars are silly money now , I bought a 2.8 I Capri for £2500 and sold it for £1500 a few years later as the cost of insurance shot through the roof thanks to the scrotes of the day stealing hot hatch backs and trying to drive them like a rally driver , without wishing to sound boring these cars were almost ten a penny and looking back I want to stab pins in my eyes for letting them slip through my hands , but surely its all relative . I wasn't in the market for Landys at the time but I know lightweights went for peanuts back in the day . I totally agree with neil110 above , the scum bags that prey on our beloved Landys deserve have their fingers put in a vice and gently smashed with a 2Lb ball pein .
  11. If its ideas your after , type Land Rover dash into Pinterest , tons of ideas on there ,some good some not so good and some where the designer / owner has been at the hemp roll ups
  12. That's a fair shout , the local Aldershot CAF or who ever they might be owned by now are on the ball'ish but still ive been caught in the same trap as loads of other people , they ask for your reg but when you try and explain that your beloved shed that's parked leaking oils in their car park isnt quite as Solihull made it , a glazed look often appears over their face , at this point I generally suck it up and do the walk of shame past the queue that's grown behind you and retire to the keyboard at home and wait for the various missed delivery slots in the days that follow .
  13. No thanks Fridge , im an ugly ole bugger anyway and don't really want my face rearranged
  14. Cheers then , I tried that in Aldershot the other day , the fella behind the counter is a 6'6" Pole ....with no sense of humour
  15. Was it a donkey in some sort of camouflage horse blanket
  16. To quote a t-shirt doing the rounds …. id sooner shove wasps up my arse
  17. This any help ? http://www.defendersource.com/forum/f6/help-me-track-down-a-rare-land-rover-color-31480.html

    Unsure if ive missed the point ....http://www.ludwikprod.com/..
  20. These guys at Dunsfold have a collection of ex military and old / new stock , might be worth a call or email , http://www.dunsfold.com/index.php
  21. B&Q do a queer stuff called , sticky stuff remover , water based non toxic and it gets most sticky stuff off
  22. The foams not that queer expanding stuff is it ? I seem to remember window fitters using it
  23. Keith Gott in Lasham just outside Alton are a reputable Land Rover specialists for old and new , decent fellas to boot & I know you asked for a company to remove your head etc but if you take it off yourself then Roe engineering in Fleet has a good reputation , a bit of a drive from Petersfield though. Hope this is of some help.
