My First Landie


Recommended Posts

Always wanted one, and eventually picked up this beauty ( well its beautiful to me )

Doors could do with a bit of work and needs a new back door that locks instead of padlocks but seems solid enough

So what next, do I Waxoyl the bu**er to death or buy every accessory I can buy/fit/bolt on

they are as serious as you imagined.

they need no extras, fridge freezer (thats a member of this forum) once explained to me that camel trophy vehicles are bog standard defenders!!

What a nice chap :P

I'll retract that though and state that Camel trophy ones are in fact heavier and slower because of all the cr*p they have bolted to them :lol:

It'd be rude not to buy a few cheeky accessories :P

You'll soon realise what a money pit these things are!...but fun by the same token :D

Ross, I didn't acuse him, and did fess up myself!!!! and I will remind you that it was you who said I should keep it bright and not paint it!!!! so if I am going down I am taking you with me..... anyway by the time I have finished painting it you will not be able to see the chequer plate..... it will look smooth...

Looks great apart from the bumper :P

Yeah, hate it, and one of the first things thats going to be replaced by a nice clean black one

Then there are the doors to repair and replace the back on because the lock is broken

Then I want to get a roof rack, and then some spots, and then and then and then and then..... oh bugger there goes the credit card
