Peterborough 4x4 autojumble

Post by Ridgy » Sun Feb 04, 2018 7:52 pm

Thought I'd report back on today's jumble in case they do it again. Run by the same people as Malvern/Newbury at the East of England showground (same place as the LRO show, in and around the cattle sheds).

Being a new event I wasn't expecting much, but it's only an hour away and I'm still looking for bits for my Defender, so I gave it a bash.

Sooooooo, the verdict. Not as big as the jumble at LRO and not much military stuff, but I came away with a rear door and seat box for £30 apiece plus a few other bits so I'm happy enough. Unless they attract more traders next year I wouldn't say it's worth travelling a long way for though.

I know! Needs work but my plan is to refurb and paint it and swap straight over rather than have the motor off the road while repairing the existing one. The door wasn't bad either, it was worth it just for the wiper assembly and grab handle but looks like the heated window works and the door itself just needs a lower skin. Bonus! Though why do breakers cut the wires rather than unplugging them.....?

Well yes but I'd have probably paid another tenner on top if the wiring has been complete. I know they're called breakers but the stuff's no good if it's broken.....

Yes Rob, hope so.
