I used to work to ULR land rover in melbourne, we used to get people calling up for parts. Most of the time we couldnt help and we never had anything that old come into the workshop, but there seems to be a huge following behind the series 1-2-3 land rovers, if only they made the defender half as good as the series 2a-3.

Great cars, id never touch one with a ten foot pole, but great to see other people with them

Been here a while

iv got the old girl to start with no aero start now just hold foot flat to the floor and she kicks over after a little bit.

seen your add there bout the bullbar i might have to look into that to see if it will fit with the winch it looks a nice bullbar, and that s1 looks the goods too, like the tyres....

you got any spare decent rims lying around maybe as well???the back to on me ute look a tad sus to be doing highway driving with.
Nah mate sorry haven't got any rims, keep an eye out as they turn up every now and then (check AULRO Markets). Discovery 1 and RRC have the same stud pattern so you could also use a set of those in a pinch. I do however have 2x 7.00R16 nankang light truck tyres. Most run the 7.50R16s however if by chance yours is running the smaller size these would be perfect. I only did 1000kms MAX on them before I changed back to 7.50R16s so they are as new. PM if you are interested

I'm keen to get rid of the bullbar, just cut a hole and bolt/weld in a set of rollers for the winch and you are away. It even has holes in the supports to brace the bullbar back to the chassis like the Military brush bars were.
