    I actually always pictured you as the kind of chap to have a Land Rover.

    Nice! Very nice for a grand and a half! :thumb:
    I'll be getting pictures of that Trooper developed in the next few weeks, and I'll post a few of the rebuild, so you can get an idea of what your car would look like in the nude. :D

    I dread to think what my housemate has had to spend on the rebuild of the car. Three hundred for a second hand chassis from a At least a couple of hundred in spares, and about a couple of hundred on paints, Waxoyl, etc. Plus other odds 'n' ends, such as screws and bolts. So about £500 on parts, plus my labour (we did a deal on rent). But it doesn't end there. We took it for its MOT on Friday, and it failed on two balljoints, and the rear brakes aren't as effective as they should be. So he's having the garage do the work.
    I asked him "Which balljoints", and he said he didn't know. :rolleyes: So I don't know if they were one side, upper, lower, or the track rod end balljoints. But at least I don't have to do the damned things. :)
    I expect, with the garage bill & MOT fees, he'll be looking at a total of at least £1500, and probably more, for the rebuild. Scary! He could've gone and bought another car, like yours, for that. But on the other hand, he probably would've had to spend as much as you have, and probably much more as he's not able to do the work himself, sorting out the little problems that second hand cars always have. So he would've had to spend at least 2K anyway. At least all the usual problems have been ironed out of this car, and it shouldn't cost him much to keep it all up together now for the next five years at least. :)

    It's no big deal. A car is essentially just nuts and bolts. You just need a Haynes manual, some good tools, and the right tools, and off you go. That's how I learnt to work on cars. It was a simple case of it being cheaper to buy the parts, and tools, and do the job myself, rather than put it into a garage. Though it's really an act of necessity really. If I could afford it I would put my car into the garage for some jobs. Actually, if I could afford it, I'd have my own well lit, heated, sound insulated, double garage sized workshop at the bottom of the garden. :)

    And you can keep your hat on - it's too cold at this time of the year. :)
