Go to the actual page you want to link to and copy the URL straight out of the address bar...even if it has a load of gobbledegook.......

I presume you're just copying the link address?.

Hey...you wanna see something REALLY flash???

last night a kindly chap gave us a sun lounge ?
see piccy ..
just a couple of bannister rails and a tarp!!! luvaduck!! bleedin simple innit!
and a full exhaust system ..
he was also a mine of information , gave plenty of advice ref the engine and trans , he told me we may have a 2.5 engine with an unleaded head , brill more power for the beast .. also we have v8 brake drums? (parrently theyre bigger)..

but its days like this that give us impetus and spirit to keep on with it (i didnt know how hard the begging can be but my skin is getting thicker)..
and every day im supprised on the generosity of complete strangers...

so this week i have been off and spent the most if it fettling the landy . firstly to ampshire!! to safari engineering to pick up the leaf springs, and the elusive lhd swivelhub arm...plus a webber carb to help with the fuel economy..
on return i fitted the swivelhub arm and oops spot the wally !!, it turns the wrong way ...:(
parrently the worm gear in the steering box is handed and were using a rhd box!.
so on monday off to the local bearmach suppliers , and after a couple of phone calls and an email or two we now have a brilliant and generous new sponsor, swansea 4x4 centre..
they have given us six tyres and the corretly handed worm drive for the steering .... :bow
so the fettling continues, and i would have prefered it to be drier but the weather being as predictable as a punch up in swansea on a saturday night has tried its best to stop us..
first order was to fit the springs , the rears went on a doddle, the front a tad more dodgy !!! dunno why its only meccano..
still only one spring left to fit and tis done!!
stay tuned folks for the next enthralling installment of rust wars , a challenge too far !!! :beerjug:
