Just driven my newly acquired TLC back home from Norfolk. Fantastic. Now the
fun and hard work starts as I start to make it ready for a trip to N Africa
or two. Good to be part of the owner family.

Hi Jeremy,
You are a lucky guy in more than one way. You've got your prize which
I am sure will give you lots of satisfaction (and dents in your
wallet, too). Also, to gain experience from day one you are able to
use this forum which, thanks to Julian, has become the first virtual
UK and European LC Club (at least for the English speaking part of
Europe).
When I got my LC three years ago there was no such thing. I had no-one
to turn to and as a result I fell victim to the incompetence of a
certain Joe Boatwright in S Wales, a bungling self-styled chairman of
a non-existent LC UK Club. Only later I made contact with other LC
owners in the UK who helped me sort out the mess he left in my
landcruiser. Had we have this list then, I'd probably save a grand or
two.
Enjoy your new P&J and don't spend all weekends in the workshop;-)

So you got it then!? good for you - you knew this question would come
from me (pretty obvious really) "where in N Africa are you planning to
go?"...

I remember that name been banded around back in 2000, when I got my LC
in May 1999....
I was never convinced of a guy named like that....so I stayed well away
- I haven't had the pleasure of meeting you yet, are you going to
Salisbury for definite?
Renate
Your 4x4 is the same year as mine - time methinks to talk with you
about whether you have had the same things, not exactly going wrong, but
niggling things. Gareth says I worry too much, he's right of course...

Hi Jeremy,
Congratulations on the new baby.
I've not come across the S and V bits before - what's the spec (GX or
VX)?
Also did you managed to get one with factory lockers.

It's a VX Limited, highly specd Japanese import, 1993/4, 52000 miles only,
factory lockers front and rear, a few too many electrical bits such as
electric lumbar support for the drivers seat...a/c+climate, sunroof etc.
Also in the boot there is the Japanese camping kit with a platform for a
bed, water tank, sink, cooker etc which I'm in the process of taking out.
It's also wearing very nice alloys and Dueller tyres but they will be
reeplaced with steel rims and probably BFGs. I'm also going to prep it for
n. africa, ie snorkel, bars, raised suspension+shocks, new rad, gearbox oil
cooler etc etc.

First stop Morocco, western Sahara, Mauritania, after that who knows. I
spent half my life in Kenya so some stage will drive there. When depends on
work etc.

Before I went to the Sahara I had a Safari snorkel fitted, mega bull
bar, bash plate, LRFT, heavy duty springs, raised suspension/shocks, and
TJM spare wheel carrier plus new radiator compontents, and a new exhaust
manifold which is better at mixing air and fuel ratios. At the time it
looked spanking, all shiny bits (my version of some very basic bells and
whistles), but now you can see its been a done a few rough things in its
life, at least it looks the part....
I'm still considering whether I have additional cooling
mechanisms/equipment added, as I might just have these done before the
next jaunt to Libya and Algeria next year.
These are the only mods I've had at the moment, basic but effective,
realistic and practical.
Dennis might be wanting to go to Morocco/Mauretania again in 2005.
I'm bound by a college work contract so even though I can have up to 30
days paid leave, without prior negotiation, I can get extended weeks if
I need them, after this the rest will be unpaid.
I have to consider the personal research agenda which limits where I go
and when and balance this with working a 7.30am to 6.30pm working week
which includes weekends.
I Spring I' having larger wheels (steel) and tyres fitted.
I still have alloys on mine at the moment and have just had the old
tyres replaced with new BFG's, I was hoping not to have to do this this
year, but the tyres get damaged after a while, and begin to rupture so I
had them replaced yesterday. Mind you, the old BFGs have had a good
innings - they've been on the car since I bought it back in 1999/2000
and have been through all kinds of stuff since the, so am still more
than happy to replace them with new BFGs as and when.
Happy modding!
