    Ooooh, this sounds like a winter sun break and a bit of a road trip :)

    Some nice Portugese red and BBQ'd sea bass with fresh picked limes, blimey, this is sounding more like a Mills & Boone crossed with Delia Smiths cook book LOLZ

    I'm going to have to bite the bullet and buy a MIG at some point - I daren't start prodding the rusty bits on the D2 body yet though, not while the engine is still in bits anyway.

    She remarked how I'm always outside working on my Rusty, put her straight and made it clear that it's not just a car, it's a hobby in terms of spannering and off road driving, turns out I can be quite aggressive in the defence of my not so Rusty 200Tdi Land Rover Discovery :eek: :):D

    I'm thinking to invite her and then push her overboard on the Hayling to Pompey ferry for being so disrespectful about the most supreme of vehicles in my life, like, ever!

    I did get a look at it and no I was not pleased, at all :(

    IMG_20190511_151601.jpg

    Got all excited when I got back from work, started it up and let it tick over as it's been a few weeks, was busy with a few other jobs and when I pulled out my old bit of carpet I found the sender recess in the tank was full of diesel, looks like the sender pick up and return pipes have rotted through, i knew they were crusty and had planned to replace the sender but didn't expect it to fail before I'd finished welding it up o_O

    Oh well, another day tomorrow.

    I had planned to replace it before the end of the rebuild but was hoping to not have to do it before I finished the cutting and grinding works.

    How did the door hanging go? I assume you safely avoided hanging yoself :D
