    Another 'light' restoration

    The decision was made to take mothers colorado off the road as the chassis had split and had broke 3 mounts off the axle all within 6 months. So what turned in to, we'll repair the chassis and get a new back axle has now turned in to this. One way to cure the isolation boredom. If anyone has any...

    Scotland 19

    We set off to Edinburgh on Friday to our favourite campsite morton Hall, set the oz tent up and then immediately took it back down, wind blowing it all over the place. As much as I like the oztent I've never found it much good in wind, probably because its just a big square. So out came the...

    Another yota

    Well after I'd lost all hope in getting a hilux for a new daily driver to replace the old damper van this gem cropped up. Vx model so air con and central locking, electric windows. 120000 mile so barely run in. Not much to do on it really, serviced, timing belt. Replaced the back springs...

    A nice spot of spring camping

    Well the last few days have been spent camping in the fine British sunshine....... not quite it's mainly rained and been quite windy. Never the less we've had a good time, found some nice places, lanes and campsites. The car performed faultless apart from the damn alarm which played up and car...

    255 85 16

    Has anyone got 255 85 16 on their 80? I've found some toyo open country mt in this size and they're 100 quid each which seems a very good price. They're the same height as 285 75 near enough just wondered if anyone thought the width makes a difference? Pictures of them on would be nice too cheers

    Anyone a glass member

    After various trips out around the peaks (closest to me) with os maps loaded on to the iPad I've noticed half the lanes it says you can drive you actually can't. They're either closed to cars or the cruiser simply won't fit. I' just wondering how you lot know what to drive. I've seen glass has...

    Heavy springs for a heavy bus

    After using my car for the past few weekends all seems well apart from a slight niggle. The rear springs just aren't stiff enough for the weight of the car how it is now. It's not a daily driver so I leave most of the camping stuff in and shelf system etc. It's currently got suplex 2 inch lift...

    Tickover drops on hills?

    For the past 2 nights I've been testing the car up and down dale, all seems well apart from a slight niggle. If pulled up at a junction facing uphill the revs drop? I'm not sure if it stalls as I daren't let it in case won't start. Perfectly fine idle when on flat or downhill and driving uphill...

Haven't really got much use for these so they're up for grabs, they're in very good condition in the grey/blue colour? Is £50 reasonable to Ask? Either way let me know if you want them, rather someone get the...

    Project mush 80

    And so after 9 months the old beast finally drove out of the garage the other day. It's not 100% finished yet but the basis is certainly there. It's now structurally sound and has the main metal add ons that I was after. This thread is for the complete vehicle, ive done a few on certain parts...

    France voyage

    Since Saturday I've been in France and I have to say it's been marvellous. We've ate and drank like kings and bathed in 30 degrees just about every day. So far we've been to verdun besancon gap antibes and now in Carcassonne. All good apart from some prices, €8 for a pint in antibes...... We're...

    Fuel tank removal

    Well been pretty busy on the old rust bucket again. Last week saw the o/s chassis to axle mount get welded on and also some new adjustable trailing arms made. Today set about removing the fuel tank for access to the other side. Looking at the straps I thought there's no way on earth and of these...

    Just for the laughs

    So today I removed the front axle from the cruiser, not too eventful to remove apart from the trailing arm mount that had been all welded up around/to the bolts. The panhard mount was rotten both spring mounts and the trailing arm mounts...... Lucky I now have a solid one from Andy to replace it...

    Are these available?

    If you've read my other post about a rusty 80 you'll know what im currently up against! I was just wondering if any of you guys knew if you could buy these as they look bloody awful to fabricate from scratch. They are the chassis mount for the lower trailing arms of the rear axle. Cheers guys

    Owner of a very rusty 80

    Hi all. I bought an 80 series about 6 months ago to build in to a bit of an off roader and over lander,stumbled upon exactly what I was after - a manual with cloth seats and triple diff locks and in the same city as me! I've now learnt to never buy the first thing you look at. The body work and...
