United Kingdom 2003 Defender 90 Td5 HT Alpine White

That's him. He is my sister in laws uncle. I didn't know how well you knew the area otherwise I could have said. My bad sorry.

If he isn't interested I know of a smaller back street garage in Widnes that I've seen have rebuilt landrovers. Unfortunately I have no experience of them as far as that kind of work, but can always pass on the details

Just noticed your in Halewood, £10 says we pass each other all the time because I live in Woolton. 2014 - current ..... 2003 defender td5 90 (my car)
2009 - current .... 2005 zx10r

Several bumps in the road...….

agreed a price with autodefiance as they had a Galvanised Richards Chassis in stock (!!)
I wanted to paint the chassis prior to install,and was quoted £380

Decided therefore that I was going to do it and Alex at Autodefiance said he could allocate me some workshop space over the weekend to paint it.

Bought some Buzzwweld GIO as the paint, but now turns out there's no workshop space!!!!

So i'm now having to flap about a get a trailer, get the chassis home, make some stands and a temporary tent to paint the bloomin thing before the job starts on Monday Confused Confused 2000 D2 TD5 - ahhh bless

Wales 1995 Defender 110 300 Tdi CSW Epsom Green

Nightmare Sad

I confess I went with the easy option and had it painted for me Rolling Eyes

A shame over the mix-up though.. hope the rest goes smoothly for you.

Some of the trailer places are surprisingly not expensive to rent for a day.
