Found ARN 30-157
« on: August 01, 2016, 06:43:19 PM »
Just found on Gum tree ARN 30-157

http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/lavers-hill/cars-vans-utes/land-rover-78-model/1120096648

Made an offer and accepted!  One advantage is that its not too far from home.  Now the fun begins - might make this the topic of a post in the future.  Coming from the Otways - this will have the full collection of rust! ::)

Great job. I thought about that my self.

The firewall looks stuffed. I've got one in very very good condition if you get around to restoring it.

Cheers

Looks like it's all there.

Definite signs of salt water!

Another one saved, should come up well. :)

Thanks FFRMAN and Mike  ;D

I will be restoring the vehicle - just trying to look at any service history. The REMLR database is exceptional and very helpful. FFRMAN aka Scott I will be in contact with you about the firewall as this was my next task to start the list of needed items and strip down the beast and start the search for bits. ;)

I understand the engine runs but needs a tune. (some tune ups are more expensive than others, 1 I did required rings, bearings and valves). The brakes have been worked on and appear in good condition.  My challenge after the firewall will be the doors and window tops.

Anyway at least I have a fair bit to start with. :-\
