Well its back on four wheels! MOT next week and a new rear box for the silencer as the previous one had been cut off by its previous owner, a bit anti social though !
Then a repaint at a later date when the weather is better.

There's always something either missing or left over when you finish a job isn't there !

Re: Now ive done it ! (in trouble with her in doors !)

Re: I miss my off-roader

I miss my lifted and mud-tyred 4x4, and I've found myself thinking of building something else, and of what options I have.

Hi All,
I'm looking for ideas on obtaining a truck cab/flatbed type truck for carrying stuff. I was thinking either Vit or an SJ or something.
Any ideas
