    So, the extent of my mechanical knowledge is basically being able to take a wheel off and put it back on again. All the dampers and springs needed doing on the Landy. Borrowed all the right tools, wd40'd all the bolts the night before and away I went!
    Dampers were completely shot and all the bolts holding them on were sized so that's what took me the most time, 10 hours later and all done, although discovered 2 holes in the chassis and I need new brake callipers.

    The thing that worried me the most was finding the previous owner, instead of changing the bush/damper just put some wood screws in it, couldn't believe my eyes, although a cheap fix it just makes me wonder what else they have bodged!?
