After having Illusions of grandeur investing 10k in a range rover L332. (that's one of the troubles of being bipolar with to many traits to list seeing the golden shaft is an experience I can tell you)
Decided as i'm only doing 50 miles or so a week. Its got to go and a sensible replacement needed.
Always fancied the P100 pick up at least it'll go up in value
found a couple on auction websites ended up with a barn find £750 delivered 100 miles from Essex to me
didn't view saw only the pictures.
Took a risk but the guy said it wasn't to bad LOL being a well known rust bucket took that with a pinch of salt after reading nightmares others have had with there's.
First thing WASH IT had more algae on it than the local mill pond.
Under the bonnet not so sad cobwebs everywhere Hey ho new fan belts new cam belt when they were fitted 6 yrs ago by last tax disc
turned over by hand everything lines up ok, it didn't start back then by the looks of it and was left.
new set of glow plugs new battery starts up 3 rd go SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET.
Bottom up best way to start
p100s have a full chassis on the rear going into a monococ type
chassis is pretty much all good, just a couple of patches don't quite believe that!
bit on the cills considerably more on the floor , 20 gauge steel on the floors no wonder they fell to bits
in between that whipped of the flatbed 6 bolts 3 came of ok others had the grinder treatment
9 days later welding done sheeeet don't quite believe that
chassis oiled flatbed cleaned done oiled and is ready to go back on. the rest can be done from outside at least another weeks worth LOL
will get some pics up in a while,
