10 years 3 months
« on: July 06, 2016, 06:10:45 PM »
Just bored and looking back at what I have done over the past 17 years, I picked on 172-562, here is an old image of it being moved
so I could assessing the damage that had been caused to it by not looking after it, especially after beach work

I A framed it about 2k's through back streets to my place, where it underwent a complete strip down, it took a bit of time to do so
and to prepare to rebuild it from the ground up

note the port n coke, tis what I sipping on now LOL, from memory I re-assembled the chassis with diffs/springs etc in under 14 hours
but I couldn't finish the front rhs axle because I couldn't find the 3 flat strip tabs to secure the stub axle, I had painted them black they
were still on the painted cardboard but being colour blind I couldn't see them LOL, it was all fixed the next morning, and a shot taken many months later

anyway it's been a cold miserable day here, way too cold for the shed, cheers Dennis

Hi Dennis,

Any chance you could run us thru all of your stable ? Before, during, and after. I reckon I wouldn't be alone in really enjoying that 👍😊

Thank you,

Mick

Well after Mick's request, I will look at doing that in REMLR shed's as quite a few of the newcomers in here may not have seen any of my Land Rovers before n after, it's a big task, but I will try to keep it as short as possible for each vehicle in the sequence that they were rebuilt, cheers Dennis
