    Hi all,

    Wow, what a great forum! I've got so much great knowledge from here it made buying a decent car a sinch so thanks to everyone who has contributed!

    So what did I get? I got a real beauty of a P38A! I'm pleased as punch: she's already been converted to springs so I have no EAS worries (seen a lot of posts on this) and together with the lift kit she's running on 22" 3 spoke alloys. Blingtastic! Originally she was a Vogue with all the toys but the previous owner slipped a 300 tdi engine in when the head gaskets went, so another bullet dodged there before she slipped a liner or two. I'll post some photos once I've finished the bodykit and the headlight conversion to match the newer models.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone,

    spitkeas.

    It's like a wind up, Wammers is probably choking on his coffee right now about the wheels and lights, and everybody else is thinkin....."BODY KIT".....:eek:

    (Yeah, I think I stood up for springs, but I don't look at P38s, at all )

    Only on the near side, 22"s on the offside. He's a big lad and it levels the car up nicely.:rolleyes::D

    Nowt wrong with the EAS, just needs looking after. Springs and a 2" lift should make for good rollovers. What you have actually bought is a dog. Just seen a P38 with a Mitsibushi engine in place of the 4.6:rolleyes:

    I wonder if the light conversion is to the L322 or the L405?

    The only way is Essex, apparently.

    From the sound of the rest of the car, a Defender conversion would be more appropriate.

    Springs fix all the EAS issues. @Gmacz says spring rock!

    Anyone know where I can get a snorkel that fits the P38? Then it'd look like a real urban-chic jeep.

    There is nothing really right about it either. And it removes one of the largest defining points of the Vehcile.
