I like the Aussie tray back conversions on LWB Series Ones, quite useful IMO. 2015 Defender 90 SW / 1985 factory V8 Ninety

I'm torn.

Part of me thinks it's slightly cool in a Mad Max kinda way. The other thinks it should be broken for parts and never seen again.

I'm veering towards the latter.

Ashton Under Lyne?..Mum & Dad lived there during WW11! Dad was an air raid warden, Mum cooked a loaf of bread, it was rock hard, so Dad took it down to the shelter to show what his wife had cooked,...don't know whether it's true or not, but Mum said they used it as a door stop!

I’ve been looking at the photo again. Maybe it’s just me but all four tyres seem to be barely making a footprint on the tarmac suggesting they are being run at a rather high pressure?

Nice, although I think the front end would benefit from a respray to make it all one colour.
