Have been out in the boat all day, in the car park on the way out I saw a 110, now being a landy freak I went for a gander, bl..dy h..l, P reg and rusty as hell. All around the lower back, round the rivets on the back panel, flip down side steps twisted and rusted, panic has just set in WHAT have I done ?
Either someone has taken no care of it or it is just crap. I have heard that the parts are good it is just the goons that fit it together are crap, not my choice of words just what I was told, but why the rust the paintwork is blistered all over. My Frontera is an S reg without a single spot of rust, immaculate but unfortunately not strong enough really, I will be sad to see it go, just don't know the best place to sell it.
Anyway back to the Land Rover, I see what people say about odd people getting them, I realise I may need to start smoking roll ups and grow a beard, but then that is not too difficult
, but tell me why after all my research these monsters keep their money, in the USA they sell for more 10yrs old than new 4x4's over there.
How many barrels of duck oil do I need and can I squirt it behind these rivets that I have seen rusting. With my trailer I looked at a few old ones, took notice of where they rusted and now keep all those parts well greased and oiled, not difficult but it seems to work. So Land Rover owners please come clean and tell me where the rust hot spots are, I have put my money where my mouth is and need to look after this mad investment.
Cheers everybody, very, very helpful but scary on some points.
