well after a couple of soakings.. angry ... i decided to make a hard top as i will be making the camper body in the new year so a bit pointless forking out for a canvas for a couple of months,,,,,must admit it is nice and cosy,,,put the red neon lights inside,,,,keep getting flagged down and asked if i have anything to sell,,,,,,aaahhhum certainly not,, No ,,,,


started to strip the 90 for the new chassis,, scratching chin ,,always something to do,,,, thumbsup

Who me? Perish the thought. As it happens, it has shot up to 14 degrees here today, really mild. Shame it won't last, hate the winter.

Those tyres do look sweet. Did you specifically choose the AT2's over the new Grabber At's?

Hey Tuggy,

I'm about to tdi the Keg. How are you finding the diesel. Have you done any thing with gearing. Is it load in your sparkly cab.

Coming on nicely keep on with the pictures.
I have never really liked the look of the 101 but after seeing yours taking shape I'm well impressed.

Still can't believe you sold your Fronty though Very Happy

petrol getting to expensive eh,,,,,,,
well if your going to tdi it go for a good 200 tdi and fit a complete unit ie engine and box that way you have 5 gears and you dont have to mess about with gearing,,,my first 101 i fitted an engine and box from a 200 ser disco and it was just right,,,and this 2.4VM lump is just right as well good gearing and 5 gears just have to get prop shafts made but well worth it,,,,,,
it was loud but i made an engine cover and insulated it with foam they use for hi fi systems its corrigated and cuts the noise out by about 80-90 % well worth doing,,,,,,
