    Not trying to be critical, just truthful and realistic ... ;)

    Is the cage to competition/ALRC spec and connected with spreader plates to the chassis?

    I don't think I'd spend more than 4 - 5k on an admittedly pretty, but basic, '86 Landrover unless it's something special. All your new bits mostly just amount to freshening it up a bit and aren't stuff that's added to the value much, to my mind, as they are all mostly maintenance parts and pretty much necessities to running well ... or have been done to meet MOT standards! Replacing brake parts and other stuff is just a normal process we all have to go through, so to me it doesn't matter whether they're new or old, so long as they work properly. When they're new it just says to me they needed replacing ... ;) I'm currently (Mine's a 1989 90, but also 300Tdi engine) replacing my seatbox, other chassis and body stuff and a newer Transfer box, but wouldn't expect, however much money and time I've spent on it, that the changes will add to it's value, just it's reliability.

    If someone offers more, I suggest you bite their hands off.

    PS, I like the storage boxes, where are they from?

    I appreciate your reply & I did build it to be reliable hence why I replaced just about
    every mechanical part not due to wear & tear.....just because I could & I didn't see the
    point of fitting old parts back on & also basic as its easier & cheaper maintain. The cage is a north off road with spreader plates to the front & rear, I have 5mm steel brackets/box section for the centre supports which I was going to get galvanised but I haven't been near the galvanisers to drop them off.
    The rear boxes were home made just copied from internet pics.

    Ive seen heeps of cr@p sell for 4k+ the prices are all over the place o_O

    It's a lovely vehicle. I think £5k is too conservative. Price does depend on geographical area though. Good luck :)

    As it's a full rebuild I'd say my estimate was probably low, then. I was thinking it had all new parts 'cos they'd broken or worn out during use .. but having read your post again, you did say you built it! My bad ... ;)

    £7k + ... but certainly not less than £5k

    It does look very tidy and well cared for, obviously a lot of good work gone into that, but not overdone.

    I would say about £5,500 to £6,500. But if you took it to the Home Counties, or the oil belt in North East Scotland, you might get another grand on top of that.
