Just joined having bought myself a 1972 Series 3 SWB.
I've had various Landrovers a couple of decades ago and fancied another to play with in my retirement!!
Have had the front chassis replaced so at least I know it has a solid base before I start pouring time and money into it.
My wife has christened it "Bottom" - short for bottomless pit!
I've got one or two minor jobs to do then I can stick it in for an MOT, even though I believe it will be MOT exempt soon. I've yet to see what the insurance companies are going to make of MOT exemptions.
Anyway, hello to you all.

Welcome to the Forum and renewed Landy ownership, John.

Were you actually a hedger by trade?

Cheers
Geoff
