Thanks, Romadog.

I'm amazed that people have the patience to restore like this - I would just buy a new assembly! Still, it's great that blokes like this are still around, and willing to put the hours and work in. Anyone in Scotland looking for a good restorer really ought to get in touch with this Graham fella!

The videos aren't a good advert for Land Rover Confused

Yes it is 038 my 50th. It's life in Scotland had been tough! We happen to live in the same village as Graham, but only discovered him when we decided to restore (if that's not a huge understatement of the work being done!) Graham has posted a number of videos and pictures to chart his progress which is meticulous! Peter
