Autocar - - USED CARS -

Well that es­ca­lated quickly. My ‘lorry’ is un­der­go­ing a thor­ough restora­tion. I’m sad to say that the doors are too far gone. Also on the ‘can’t be saved’ list is the fuel tank: it is as rot­ten as a month-old peach, ap­par­ently.

The job of build­ing up the ba­sic struc­ture has be­gun. A Land Rover en­thu­si­ast made the point that the shiny gal­vanised chas­sis would look a bit daft and at­tract the wrong sort of at­ten­tion. We will get a load of Wax­oyl or Schutz sealant and ap­ply this treat­ment to the rear cross mem­ber. That way, it will just look like an­other old Land Rover.
