    This week finally got around to fitting the Skytag in a super mysterious location. Really impressed with how these trackers work.

    Yesterday afternoon and last night took the Landy on a "date...:)" meeting for the first time a properly lovely girl. Arrived chez elle mid afternoon and she'd baked me a Victoria Sponge Cake for us to take afternoon tea! Some while later it was out for a hearty 3.5hr supper/dinner. She'd never been in a Land Rover before, loved the fun factor, commanding position and the leather RX8 seats. We're meeting for a long lunch tomorrow :cool:

    Was she disappointed the seats don’t drop flat after lifting lever and that the transmission tunnel was too high to get your leg over?? :oops:o_Oo_O

    Been tackling the brackets and bits and bobs after stripping them all from the tub this weekend.
    Lots of wire wheel action and then a healthy dose of Kurust.

    Can’t decide whether or not to repair the bottom of the stay that goes up the centre of the tub front bulkhead. What does this actually do?

    Cheers. I guess there should be some other hardware to strap the wheel on?
    I’ve got a bonnet mounted spare but good to know there’s the second option.

    You can use a piece of thread rod with a hooked end into that bracket. Flat bar across the rim.

    Did this on my Series 3 some years ago and broke several drill bits. It was a lot more work than it looked to fit them! :rolleyes:

    Took a look at the doors today. Almost pristine I’d say.
