Late post from my boxing day test, but why not!

First proper trip off road for several months. Performed well, just some slight issues with gear change at the end, but seems to off sorted itself now.

About 80% completed. Great fun anyhow Very Happy

One in the fog before Christmas, planning to change the green to the original bronze Green.

Back out again today in the rain (made it more fun), and a stop for lunch at the pub which made it all that much better Very Happy

If anyone is near or lives the Cheshire area/North Wales area and wants to go on the green lanes feel free to drop me a PM.

Thanks! Just need to repaint it and do some more cosmetic stuff.

Softtop Nope, didn't have the courage to go down the gap just yet! I attempted during the summer to go up it in the work defender got half way and didn't like the sand + wasn't my vehicle.

I'll give it ago in a couple of weeks, the rain has created large channels so makes it more challenging and the surface conditions.
