New Owner

Post by Cliff4WD »

Hello all,
It's been a while negotiating etc., but I have now taken on ownership of Captainslow's 1981 Stage One. I thought I'd best wait until I actually had the vehicle before introducing myself. I haven't formulated my restoration plan yet, but I intend to make as full a restoration as I can, although money will be a restricting factor. The engine runs well, it already has a galvanised chassis, but it is in need of some bulkhead restoration. I imagine that I'll be stripping it down to the chassis and removing the bulkhead to do the repairs (or replace it if I have to), and most likely be restoring/replacing suspension, drive, etc.

I also have a Discovery 2 td5 Millennium which I have been steadily maintaining and fixing, and use as my daily drive.

I'll start a restoration thread when I get started and keep it updated as things progress.

Look forward to getting to know you all.

Cliff

Welcome aboard Cliff. Bit late in the welcome, sorry.

Good luck the resto work, and looking forward to updates :)

It's your standard utility vehicle; 2 front doors, rear door, hard top and sides. Galvanised chassis and I think, a replacement bulkhead. Engine was rebuilt by RPI in the late 90's

I assume you're referring to my disco thread link in signature. That's there for anybody interested but is not in itself relevant to a stage 1 forum. I was intending to create a thread here for my stage 1 restoration but do not see a topic for that, any suggestions where best to place it? (Clean polite answers please :lol: :lol:)
