Hello, just signed up today, thought i'd better introduce my self. Was pointed to this site by a member here FelixLockhart

I have been interested in land rovers for a while now, learnt to drive in a SWB Series III, had the land rover bug ever since.

At the moment i have a 1990 Defender 110 Station Wagon. Just finished a 200TDi conversion after the old TD packed up after 215000 miles.
Was going to rebuild but a 200TDi Discovery lump came up for a price i couldn't refuse. still, not the best move i ever made as its started to burn a bit of oil, ho hum at least ill get to see what the inside of a 200TDi looks like .

The only other major job is the bulkhead which will need patching before it's MOT is due at the end of march.
