Hello,
i thought i would share a few pics of a project we have been working on for a while and then have had to put aside but progress will begin early 2011,
heres flo....




we have much more work to do,
it is very almost to MOT standard, just a few asthetics
we planned to have it ready for the Mac 4x4 2010 as a test run for it but up untill 2 days before the event we still struggled with a few parts and had no mot so we took the 110 instead,

Looking good - is that a V8 going in or coming out?

Certainly is a V8, interestingly enough its the old one from Tom Mc's Range Rover Ambulance,
we fully rebuilt the engine and it is now fitted,
thats an auto box bolted to the engine too, but that is being swapped for a manual due to the incredible size of the thing Laughing if we leave it in we will have two choices cut out the centre cross member or move the front to look like a defender so we will fit a proper size gearbox and keep the looks and the chassis the same
the auto box was abit of a pub pipe dream that could have been good but in practise not so

I really like this Smile If I had a V8 landie I would probably end up doing silly things to it.
