Not much has been happening Col, garage has been incredibly busy with Dinitrol work and usual defender business, so much so they've had to install another lift and do some internal building works.

I've not even had the chance myself to go down and get in everyone's way due to work.

I am though in the the process of buying a really nice clean 130 tub and hood from a nearby forum member which has been a great relief considering there aren't many in decent shape. Bow down

I can also say that I'm 90% sure I'll be able to squeeze the colour change in too which is nice Thumbs Up

I'm also likely to buy some more parts this week coming like air shocks and pneumatically controlled hi/low diff lock kit from a chap on the FB group. Will probably need to buy some more 3/8" tubing now I think about it - I severely doubt the 30 ft that came with the controller will be enough for all 4 corners on a 130 Laughing Stuart

Well it's been a while and had a ~2 month setback after the head mechanic suddenly left for personal reasons and the new chap having to give 6 weeks notice. That and the fact Stagshaw have an exploding customer base - wont be long before they get a new big shop that's for sure! Laughing

Anyway, the 130 is entirely dismantled still with the chassis currently away being shot blasted and galvanised.

Here's some terrible photos taken in a pinch after getting back from my holiday:

I was also given this stunning Freelander as a courtesy car for my week away in Bara since it wasn't built in time. It was one of the very last off production line and in the highest spec, Metropolis - sooo comfy, electric everything, double sunroofs...

Will have more photos for you rivet counters later this week - promise Razz Stuart

They too were impressed with its lack of rust or need for any repairs.

It's baking right now I believe and will return all nicely painted Very Happy

That is always a big plus with none or very little work to do on the chassis, the chassis will look very nice when back from being painted Cool 1996 Golf Blue 300Tdi 110 Pick up. Keeper.
