Nipped in for a brew at my pals couple of days ago.
Was greeted by a 80 having a bit of open heart surgery..
Came out of a British army tracked vehicle. About 300 hrs, not a spot of rust on the engine itself.

We need a new laptop, or whatever they are called nowadays..
Tbh, I'm struggling to show any interest in mauling through reviews about something I know little about.
So, what would those in the know on here recommend?
I like that middle ground of best performance for the money, before the...
so, i was happily cruising along in the 80 listening to a ACDC track far to loud. then, all of a sudden, "what does the fox say" belted out of the speakers even louder! i nearly jumped out of my seat.
google it if your not familiar with this really annoying kids song.
you have been warned...
Well, didn't think I would be needing one of these before fitting a G turbo/wink.
Couple of days ago floored it going up a steep hill in fourth, hit the sweet spot, turbo whistled and the boost gauge shot up to 15 psi.
As did the tacho..
Slipped on a couple of occasions now, so turned down...
How is it effecting your life so far?
What precautions have you started to take?
Do you know anyone who has the virus?
This might be a good place for some solid advice and tips too.
I'm getting the feeling this one might not just blow over..
Anyone know if these are available from a UK supplier?
They seem to be a generic Chinese job. I've seen them a different colour/make but can't seem to find a UK source.
I can be pretty crap at searching for stuff...
Had a customer's 80 all this week getting some jobs done. For the first time I noticed this;
My 96 doesn't have the switch illumination, nor the illuminated halo around the ignition which I keep meaning to retro fit..
Think I'll be fitting a set of these too.
What's the difference?
I get the stretchy recovery strap thing, but what's the difference between lifting straps and towing straps.
I found it mildly amusing today when some timber we were lifting slowly passed by me with a hint of impending doom suggested on a tag as "not to be used for...

Noticed a small rusty patch seeping moisture.
Then noticed the rubber bung. Prodded it a bit and it starting dripping.
Pulled the bung out and about half a cup of water went right down my sleeve.
Better down my sleeve than trapped in my 80..

Came across a few incidents over the weekend with the heavy rain.
You'll need to zoom in.
Looked like a virtually new merc.
It "just cut out". It also wouldn't shift out of drive.
Then there's that towing eye shambles that I'm very familiar with.
"grab the towing eye mate"
"whats a towing...
Any thoughts on these?
Not for the 80, got stuck in a water logged field in the Unimog the other day. Took me ages to air down to 18 psi. Unfortunately haven't got CTIS.
Seen very similar on ebay for about 8 quid..
With the nice weather given made a last minute decision to chuck the rtt on..
Drove past the madness..
This will do.

With summer brewing and the old air conditioning in the 80 not being as cool as it can be, I went to my normal place to get it recharged.
I had it last done about 3-4 years ago, it was 50 notes then..
