Hi from snowy Scotland.

Admirer of these since my friend had one at school - finally time and money allowed me to pick one up.

It was from last January, via this forum - I've just have been enjoying it but thought I should really introduce myself after all this time!

Generally very good nick, more of a 'keep it going' model which suits me. Just back from garage - badly timed in snow! - having replaced clutch master/slave/pipe with Defender. Slave failed, rest made sense to do too.

Will try and be more participative since I do read lots of the posts and benefit from others experiences!

Regards to all

More photos please. I just love the vibrant colour which looks almost the same as mine.

Lovely looking example. Some of these 70 colours really pop.

Extra pics - it's better looking in these than real life - a few blemishes.

And I do love the colour - makes it a real head turner. :D Used to be Ivory according to chassis number, so must have been resprayed at some point, although the only colour I can see in worn bits is green......

Green is probably the gel coat of the fibreglass?

Welcome, by the way! :D

Looks great. Has it got 7x14 wheels on the rear?

Thanks. Same size all round, 7x14. Only one with the rim marking though so assume one original and 3 copies - other than the stamp can't tell any difference.....

7x14 weren't original fit, so more likely they were all fitted later. They look good though! :D

Thanks - I agree, they look great. Just need to keep them that way!
