    A good mate of mine bought 63-KB-51 around 2009 ...
    ran it around for a year or so and then after a bit of a coming together with a tree during some snow laning it was parked up and left to "Mature"

    I sort of felt sorry for it standing out in the open in the worst of the Derbyshire peaks weather ...BUT was busy with other stuff ($ other series landrovers in the fleet )

    Then in 2014 I bought it for a bargain price as a none runner ...5 years parked outside hadn't been terrible kind to be honest

    Shifted it into the garage late 2014 and accidently bought a S2a 109 Station wagon and took it around the Wast coast of Scotland and Western isles with some friends in leafers and generally got distracted by life ....

    However I thought it was time to start doing some work on it a short while back ....AND with some help from a great bunch of friends (And the Mrs)

    Brake lines were all shot so have been replaced along with the wheel cylinders

    A brace of Lucas 069's were fitted and she started second turn of the key

    New exhaust is arriving shortly along with new bump stops

    wing is still off for access but a replacement came with her so no worries there ....
    A fair amount of patching of the chassis extremities was needed BUT the main bits are solid ....looking forward to finishing the bits and bats off and sticking it in for an mot .

    I'm currently restoring a ex-army 109 myself, I contacted the RLC last month & at a cost of £35 you can download the vehicles 'B' record sheet, expensive but well worth it, the link: http://www.rlcarchive.org/VehicleSrch.aspx

    And, also technically, I was mainly around Gt Hucklow which is also Derbyshire.

    Enough of the pleasantries, you've still got a Landy that I wanted.

    Two of them IF you are into FFR's ....
    To be fair I really didn't want a second FFR BUT at £300 it was too cheap to turn down ;)
