i only have one image of her so far, its snowing, and i dont wanna ruin my camera.
Its got roof rails and mud flaps ATM thats all i have done to it, considering getting the engine remapped as it is a diesel a remap could give significant improvements in performance :)

I've never cared for landrovers, the only ones i've seen 'round here are the big, ugly boxy suv's, but the curves on this one, and the silver color are very nice!

i have always liked landies,
when i was a young lad *about a million years ago* (okay so i'm 29) i saw a 110 defender pickup and knew that thats what i wanted to drive
i first got a series 2 90, it was all i could afford at the time, it was pretty bog standard, did the job. Then i sold that got me a series 1 110 pickup
unfortunately this was stolen about 5 years later, it was found on the hills by the fire brigade - got left with a burning wreck.
so i bought a small nissan micra drove that untill i got promoted from a "mechanical fitter" "mechanical team leader" which basically means, i got loads more money so i bought one of these, because, when you get a bit older you will know that comfort is a nescessity, keeps the old doughnut from being in pain. well thats my excuse, i dont really have any trouble with my "doughnut" just keeps the wife happy :)

i found loads of little rust patches all over the paint work, so small you cant notice them untill you look really close.
Rang land rover
Aparently some of the earlier ones were given a defective paint job or something involving zinc coating.
so its gone back in for a full body respray and this zinc thingy.
when i get it back i have some bits and pieces waiting for it :)
i'll keep those a secret for now

Good thing you're fixing the rust now, this truck is too nice to be destroyed by rust! This one almost reminds me a ford edge, except much more.... elegant, yet aggressive.

thanks, i got her back now, ive decided that im not going to void my warranty lol
im goin to leave it bone stock untill it runs out, by then i will probably have something different :P

Update : put some new rubber on the little monster,
General Grabber UHP AT tyres
i cant remeber the sizing off the top of my head.
but they are surprisingly good on the road, im getting more MPG with them on than road tyres. Plus the work offroad too, thats right boys my freelander aint no chelsea tractor, it goes offroad too.
so does red rage tho LOL
Great car, my dad has the same one! (LR2 here, Freelander 2 where you are.
Does yours have the navigation system? Ours doesn't, we didn't want it.
09-05-2008, 03:28 PM
Nice! Mine doesnt have the Sat nav, who needs to spend 200+ on it when you can get an A-Z road map for 3 quid, wheres the sense?
Ohh mine dont have wood either, + is yours an auto??
