Landrover 101 project

Tell us about any of your non-Land Rover projects here. These may be military or non-military, motorbikes, cars, lorries, planes etc. It's interesting to see what others have in their collections and what they are working on besides their Land Rover(s).

Hi Martin,
It's an expensive hobby to do it properly, Lightweight, 101, or whatever. It's what it whatever costs, period. No point in scrimping.
Great work, keep the pics coming.
BTW, you haven't forgotten about my tub cross member? I need to pay you for it even if we don't meet up for a while.
Regards
Bob

Hi Martin,

Looks like you have made some great progress with the 101. Splash plates look brilliant and that stainless fuel tank looks more discrete now that it’s black! Also, pleased to hear that you have managed to get the correct winch; it is such an important part for your wagon - hope it was worth the trip!
Regards,

Steve

Hey Martin, its a 101, so parts are never going to be cheap, apparently, it's all about fun or madness, I know as I have two and a lightweight.

Still your making great progress, very impressive.

Keep up the good work.

Well work on the 101 has come to a slow down as i was approached by a local shoot that was closing and asked if this landrover 101 was worth anything ! Of course i said no but made them a cash offer that they accepted straight away .They purchased it in 1994 for £1500 and only did 150 km a year on a private estate . Its a 12 volt LHD ex RAF Rapier with a geniune 30 000 km on the clock great chassis and runs as sweet as a nut . The marshal tailboard and all the original parts that were removed while being used as a gun truck were included in the sale . It also fitted with 5 brand new tyres . The plan is to turn it around by overlord and hopefully export it for a profit !
