As far as insurance is concerned, have a go with CAROLE NASH.
I've just had to renew my car and bike policies. They do some fantastic policies, get this.
Jaguar XJ, Triumph Tiger and Bimota YB6. All on one policy for under 500. The lot!
All have separate AA, key and windscreen insurance included.
And my Land Rover was under 400 F.C.
They appear to have their eyes open to customer service. Very decent to deal with.
Go the 'phone route as it's easier for them to tweak your details to fit the best deal.

From memory, the rear floor has been done as well as the inner front wings and it's had a head gasket too.

It's out of MOT at the moment so I guess that will be a starting point.....

Yep, complete with towbar
or waiting to use the slip any more, the sailing dinghies are no match for a discovery.

I'll get some pics tomorrow, all servicing has been done by my father except for a few jobs done by the local Mobile Land Rover guy who comes round your house and does the work on your drive - he did the head gasket and the inner front wings. I do remember my dad changing the gearbox few years ago.
