    Hi All
    New to this forum but not to Land Rovers.
    I just bought (on a serious whim) a 1980 series III 109 ex military ffr which needs recommission before trying to use it daily...

    Can anyone recommend a knowledgeable mechanic in either London or Surrey area who loves working on Series land rovers?

    currently needs
    - brakes sorting
    - new clutch (apparently just master cylinder)
    - new exhaust complete system
    - rust repairs

    Future plans are to put a v8, overdrive and freewheeling hubs on it and respray. This truck will be used primarily for hauling motorbikes and having fun in.

    Any help would be hugely appreciated!
    Many thanks
    Josh
