    Go on you know you want to….if the S1 2ltr can do it so can you. Get saving for warm weather gear as it’s in December ;)

    mine LR was originally a V8

    Just finished treating the chassis inside and out with Lanoguard. It’s very easy to apply and when dry, leaves a waxy surface that’s a matt finish.
    Hopefully it’ll protect as good as it smells.

    Hi Phil, I shouldn't be thinking of this as have too much other life stuff going on...but, there's always a but, my V8 Land Rover itch needs scratching. I've competed in a good number of CRA/HERO events since late 90's but yet to do LE JOG...and want/need to get back into classic rallying. It doesn't help as have also been watching Bowler type 90's getting BIG AIR + I've got mechaporn urges for a V8 90 with period colour coded Evo DakarCorse alloys :eek: Imagine a 3.5ltr Ninety soft top military with Series headlight surrounds, many eligible Gwyn Lewis HD goodies, external 6pt cage and both body and wheels painted in an old skool colour, ala Bahama Gold/Sandstone/Limestone, or even with Limestone wheels. I guess a lightened version of what I have now...but with a V8 :cool:

    It's all just an acorn of an idea at the moment...but I know what happens with my acorn ideas, I suddenly find myself in Marakesh, Santiago, Monte Carlo or Timbuktu o_O

    This is how she rests tonight - the inner bulkhead is immaculate. Just waiting for the parts to arrive to replace the front. E3C0F20F-3355-4A2B-851A-63479DC66C1E.jpeg

    Atlas mountains...? If so, they're fantastic. Have even crossed the Atlas in a Peugeot 504 saloon in North African Taxi white. It was a great trip and these old Pugs are tough as nails. Two residing memories are 1. a village boy darted out in front of the car on his bicycle and disappeared under the car [!] :eek: I thought he was a goner. Then this little head popped up in front of the bonnet quickly followed by his father rushing out, grabbing the son and started beating him :( I had to stop/calm down the father and make sure the little boy was okay. 2. I had the ex-MiL in the back seat bemoaning my driving style from the moment we left Marrakesh :mad: Once off main roads and in the mountains proper it was GLF...she soon piped down :cool:
