I reckon you'd be gutted if we all turned up at the Treasure Hunt with buckets of soapy water and polish and gave your Landy a good going over. :D



I think it would up and run away with its tow bar between its wheels!!!

:) I think my landy fancy's your landy. If we bred them I think we'd produce a nice off-spring!!:D haha


ps: I like the A bar but cant pay £300 for one. Flogged my standard one on pic. Also Intercooler needs to be free from obstrucions ;)
We're only jealous, have my eye on a 98 90 county thats spotless and if he sells(which is due about now) I will be first in the queue and will see no off road, well unless my 89 90 wont start or something similar:rolleyes:
Too all those on the too shiny / clean front, I AGREE!! The problem is trying to get him to get it muddy, we've not had it too long and hes been abit reluctant to get it dirty so far!! :( Mind you I can see his point as it was a considerable wedge for a Defender. He has said he will think about some green runs at pay and plays etc though. I am working on it though!! In the mean time I am loving driving it! Had some funny looks as if to say a 19yr old shouldnt be behind the wheel! :D

R.e the A-bar; the bar, lights and snorkel plus a towbar with twin electrics from L/R ended up costing us about £1.5k (inc labour) :eek: Dealer prices and all that!!

Anyway, thanks for the kind remarks!

P.S I have noticed how tall the OEM snorkel sits, someone told me its to account for a roof rack to be fitted, is this right?
I expect that you got it from kentdale LR did ya! I get funny looks when i drive my defender, maybe because i'm a 17 year old but you know.

When i got me defender sorted, i'll give ya a shout and we can see about getting it dirty. Do you have MSN?
I get funny looks as well. I especially love the looks of the boy racers when they say "Is that thing yours?" at parties etc.
Damn right. As it says on the back "You can go fast, I can go anywhere."

My brother and his mates love it when I go and pick them up from parties and take them home the offroad way... I've had 7 of them in my 90 before :eek:

The easiest way to solve this is to ignore Mantec's measurement guidelines for the holes in the windscreen and position them as low as possible. This way you get a snorkel that sits at roof hight or slightly lower...

Ahh ok I see, well I think its too late then as obviously the bracket has allready been fitted. I wonder why they suggest it should be fitted so high? Thanks anyway
Just means when you take it offroad you can take through a slightly deeper puddle:D

Never realised how many 19yr olds have their own landy's on this forum:)
