    many thanks scott, in the deal the chap also let me av a fairey winch the one that connects to the crank [i think]which i have no idea what to do with. Any tips or pointers would be much appreiciated.

    I may be telling you something you allredy know but it is best if you replave the main rear gearbox bearing with a sealed one, this will stop oil going from the main box into the transfer box, this is the main cause of oil on the handbrake

    For getting rid of old paint or other crap I have used either a twist knot wheel or a sanding disc on a small angle grinder, the twist knot wheel is better but not as fast, and use eye protection as the crap comes off in all directions.....good luck

    This is great to see. Just got a SR2a which is on the road but could do with a bit of TLC. Not sue wether to strip the whole lot back during the winter.

    Was looking to day to see how hard i thought it would be.

    Where did you disconnect the electrics for the rear lights?

    Also if i strip off the cab and front wings where in you opinion would be the best place to disconnect the electrics. Will i end up rewiring the whole thing
    in end?

    Any help would be good.
    Cheers
    Rob

    you can get the full workshop manuel's for most "real" landrovers on ebay on a cd for about £1, i find them to be a real god send.

    Just got a series 2, think it's going to be a little bit of a project.
