Great to have you back Colin.

Too many of the old-hands seemed to have lost interest over the years and gone somewhere else,

Cheers Charlie
Charlie,

The younger generation seem fascinated by Facebook. Personally I spend time on AULRO and had forgotten about REMLR, I was also regularly on the LR Classic Campers forum in the UK (because of the Dormobile) but haven't been on there much either.

One of my boys now has a Disco 1 and he lets me know if anything interesting comes up on Facebook.....

Good to see another 2A project on here Colin,

Looking forward to seeing it come together, is it running yet?

Iím getting close to finishing my 68 GS 109, are you still chasing a front blackout light?

Cheers,

Mike.

Hi Mike,

It's been running the whole time I've had it, drove onto the trailer when collected.
Oil pressure is a bit low so I might drop the sump & check the big end shells.

I moved it out of the shed a couple of weeks ago for a clean. No floor panels and wiring taped up for the front lights !
Just fitted two new headlights because the silvering on the originals was past it's best.

Need to get some foam cut for the rear seats, the bases are missing. As these seem to be held in place by a couple of tapes I guess they get lost or blow away when traveling.....

Yes, I'm still looking for a front blackout light. I could fit a blanking plate and just the 'peak' so it looks like it's there.

Colin

Nice to have you back Colin.

It is possible to use REMLR as the host for photos, which eliminates the ransom problems. It has been a while since I have posted a photo but I remember it being a simple process,

Cheers Charlie

Are they a good thing to use with a solar set up.

I purchased this vehicle years ago and have been working on it when time/finance permits.

I've had problems hosting pictures. Photobucket held me to ransom and 1000's of pictures were removed from several forums then I moved to Flicker and they implemented 1000 for free so I had to trim the number of photos hosted.

Here it is when collected

2a GS 1 by Colin Radley, on Flickr


Axles & brakes have been overhauled, radiator re-cored, new canopy from Restless Rover, wings painted, doors repaired & repainted, new doortops.
It came with the hood bows and the back is still full of spare parts from when collected 9 years ago !

Thread on AULRO is here.
