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.

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!

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.
