GF said i could do it if it cost less than a grand!

I can get the steel through work and they pay the VAT, am allowed to liberate ali from the scrap bin. so not looking to bad at the moment!

Also there is a sierra parked up in a driveway just round the corner that hasnt moved in 4 months, must go round! but need to get rid of the GFs Landrover first!!

Leave the GFs land rover alone, I guarantee you will need it before you've done building! Mine has collected lots of bits and even carried the completed chassis when i had to move building location!

If the Sierra hasn't moved in 4 months just sneak up on it at night and liberate the bits you need a few at a time. If you leave the wheels there they will never noyice th suspension is gone, they are more likely to notice if you nick the wheels

PS if you decide to do the honest thing you will need Land rover to pull it round to your place

Hi! For example I bought my headlights from a shop where U can by tractor parts. These lihts are legal, they have parkinglights(Ba9S) and ordinary H4 bulbs. and they are nice, round and clear. Ill show U the picture soon.


EDIT: I used big truck trailer rear lights as my rodster lights. they are also nice and around
