Water ingress

after all the comments the past two weeks about leaky 110's. I thought I'd share this video from 8 years ago.

What's hilarious about all the water ingress talk is we are talking about vehicles people put snorkels on to submerge all the way up past hood.

Not sure what it is but that 110 was one of my favorite looking builds of all time.

IIRC there is a UK vid of a Defender almost totally submerge (like over the windshield) driving across a lake.

And is that Janey in the background at the end?

That was a second run. Charles talked me into doing it a second time because no one filmed it the first time. I took a lesser line the second time, first pass was deeper and I actually had to wait for the front end to "sink" to regain traction. The bonnet went under the first time. That freaked me out so I went shallower the 2nd time.
