Since shooting and Land Rovers Stereotypically go together. Who owns one? 


I've got a 1983 Series3, which i'm rebuilding nut and bolt. 


Isn't that what all land rover owners are doing constantly anyway?

But this has been a full resto to my spec and updating too, so full rewire, 300tdi engine, rebuilt absolutely everything myself. 

And stripped the paint back to bare alu and started again.

90 with 3.9 V8 LT85 gearbox Range Rover Classic rear axle and high geared final drive.  Have only been pulled in by Green Flag three times, once when the accelerator cable came adrift (a faulty new one just fitted) Green Flag man showed me how to up grade and prevent a problem in the future.  Second time the clutch master cylinder popped and the third time one of the rear discs broke away. The Land Rover is in constant use off road working not playing, hauled 2 tons of logs from a very wet field today the 25th load in the last four weeks, almost one a day.  31 years young.  I wonder what these Jap trucks will look like in 31yrs doing the same amount of work.

I had a 110 hi cap 300tdi for work. Excellent load lugger but suffered all the usual problems, ujs, clutch cylinder, etc. Not had one for a while now, probably wouldn't have another (any Land rover), but only because I can't afford one. Love my subarus now anyway.

Talking to a chap with one the other day - bought his back in 1995 - he says it's his second and he sells them on when they hit 200k miles - his current one has 180k and has only ever required a replacement hose apart from normal service items.

It’s in garage making start with a new galvanised chassis now 

I've been looking at these pictures for the 3 hours, I still can't spot the difference.

1995 300tdi and a 1994 300tdi. The 94 has a galvanised chassis and bulkhead which i've added a larger intercooler to, rewired (as it had SIII wiring) and fitting bits of chequer plate on.

I still need to take the winch bumper and tow pack off the 95 (Blue) and put them on the 'Squirrel'.

The car is grey and was (for a while) called "The Fokker" as I kept finding faults and problems due to the rebuilding skills (sic) of the previous owners restorer (known in this household as the 'Butchers of Hereford') and that the previous owner (who had picked the colour) told me it was RAL7012 - which is as close as you can get to the same grey the Nazis used to paint their aircraft in WW2.


The cars almost finished now, a couple of weeks away, then i'll sell 'bluey'
