    Where do I hang the front mud flaps on a series 2a

    Hi This land Rover is lik nothing I've ever seen. I looked around other sites but there were always differences. I spotted it while out for a drive in Malin Head, Ireland. It looks like an ambulance but the orange beacon is odd. One thing that makes me think it's not a homebuilt are the blue...
