Hi All,

Would like to introduce myself, I'm Rob, I've recently bought a kit form 5a project from eBay.

I'm an IT engineer but have been a mechanic among other things so I'm reasonably competent (I hope 😀) but it was at a Land Rover specialist so more of a big hammer weilder really.

I'm sure I'll be popping up asking for advice and if anyone knows of a..... for sale, I've already identified a few bits I need but getting her driving is the main priority at the moment.

Thanks in advance.

Rob

Hi Richard,

I've got a lot of bits but bumpers is one thing I'm missing so if anyone has any kicking around I'm interested.

On the plus side it does seem a good car, I've already had it running so happy days.

Rob
