Hi
I took over ownership of GB278 last year. Sorry I only just got round to registering. I got my local Land Rover garage (Loughrans in Towcester) to go through her using the original maintenance check sheet and they gave her a full service. Mechanically very sound and drives beautifully, possibly in part due to the Overfinch conversion. I have the original invoice for the conversion (£2181 + Vat on 26th May 1999). She had an Ashcroft transmission rebuild in March 2009 (original invoice £785 + Vat). I have loads of other papers and invoices and they show that in a former life she was J8 DSO for a while. She has some rust in the usual panels but the chassis is good. I have been gradually making some changes (e.g. restoring the original lenses rather than the NAS lamps that had been fitted, changing out the rusted bolts for new stainless steels). Iím planning to get the rusted panels fixed next. Last time the odometer worked (which is not very often) she was on just over 86,000 miles.
Regards
Steven
