The restoration of pat

I've named him pat as he was an ex uk royal mail delivery vehicle... you know postman pat lol

when i first saw him

loaded onto trailer and towed with the disco 4 first then swapped over to the 110

got him home

only real rust

and rust on the inside caps opposite where the outside is. bulk head has a little bubbling but nothing big.

Plan is to put auto 300tdi in it so wife can drive it. Maybe 200tdi if I cant find a 300 but I'm sure there will be a 300.

repaint. Not sure what colour yet. either silver or red. Dont know how much I want so strip it back though.

its currently got the 2.5D non turbo. do they have the same mounts as a 300tdi?

also want to put a/c system in it. I'll have to nick one out of a local defender thats got a/c

probably disco 1 wheels with 33s and an ample lift. that should keep me happy!!!

Don't forget the black & white cat. Another Landy saved. Need some nice rover porn replace those cappings with some galvanized ones.

Edward Teach is the Blackbeard, and is a member of the Birmabright Brotherhood.

Still looking for that place where I can carry a paddle and get asked what's that.
