The Aunt is giving me cause for thought. She could make a fab overlanding camper...unless this is heresy, in which case I'll keep my thoughts to myself  laugh

Hi,

Somebody mentioned the KIA SPORTAGE .....  Quick Google gave me ....

https://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/kia/sportage/suv/33110/mpg

I have not yet checked out the small print, nor have I decided how much I want to spend, nor how big

Now I've actually seen a photo of The Aunt, it has a strange resemblance to a pipe dream of mine.
Early Disco chassis and running gear, with a 90/110 type cab grafted on .
I'm positive that the cheap and plentiful supply of 90/110/Defender  body panels has absolutely nothing to do with the large numbers of these vehicles  that have gone missing during the night  stars

Personally, my advice would be not to sell, you'll only regret it later.
But then I'm only 3/4 of your age.
In twenty years time I might feel differently.

Having flogged land rovers myself and then regretted it afterwards, I tend to agree..
Your Mrs has a vehicle she can use/ get into, it's not like it's your only motor so I'd hang on to it..
If you are really set on selling I think you'd be best advised to put a regular rear tub back on, you'd have a larger potential marketplace for a more normal vehicle, purely imho...

Isn't there a family member the Aunt could go to? I think you'll regret it if  she truly goes.

Hi Eve,

Our son died in Oz in 2012.

Our daughter has decided for herself that her eyesight is not up to scratch for driving.

My nephew is one of a family of Yuppies living in East Dulwich, I think he is old enough to drive, but there aint nowhere to park. Yuppies? His dad was the Press Officer at the VA, and PO for MoD before that, but I think he has gone freelance again. We meet up about once a year, usually Christmas. go through the motions. We don't really speak the same language

I spotted a hi-cap pickup body on eBay yesterday and thought of The Aunt.
Probably the last thing you would ever fit (being overtly series three in origin), but at a tad under £500 it would get the vehicle looking like a Land Rover again rather than Jed Clampetts daily drive  stars

John, my youngest son may well be interested in the aunt. I am currently in Norfolk, but will be back in MK tomorrow, so will pop in for a chat in the next day or two. Dave

Hi,

Gosney
... I don't seem to have a PM from you ... unless it (both) were sent under a different name.

370abc ... My PC does not acknowledge the chip from my camera. I may already have something on file. I'll check in the morning.

Hmmm!  I have thought of a complicated solution to Barbara's problem ... hang a frame underneath, with a platform that can be lifted up and down, and pushed in and out when travelling ... manual, electric, hydraulic, screwed, jemmied, nixweiss Do I want to get involved in light engineering in TMA? With the garage electrics take my welder?  First move would be to make a bench .... then see if I can find my vice.  Hmmm! Cradle underneath fixed to the sill bars, so I don't need to use riv-nuts from inside the chassis .....
