It is not intended to be a complete list of all Land Rover shows, just ones which some of our members have attended in the past or might be of interest. If anyone knows of any more they think would be suitable t...

Re: Dormobile 'headlining'

An alternative, if you are not bothered about originality, is a material glued straight onto the roof. I've seen it done with DIY campers, and it looks ok, and I think they sell it for van & boat interiors. The material is like thick felt, but probably nylon rather than wool/cotton, and can be stret...

Re: Dormobile 'headlining'

I can't say how the headlining was fitted to my Dormobile project as it was a saggy mess when I got it :embarassed: I had to pull it out just to get into the driver's seat without my head holding it up! I'd be interested in any replies from folk who have worked on theirs as I'll need to replace mine...

Re: 66 88 Searle Safari LHD

Oh, and the repositioned front sidelights and indicators could have meant it had Jerry cans fitted in front of the wings. Are the lights on top of the wings headlights (ie. dip & full beam)? If they are I wonder if that was a local regulation for the positioning of lights - that's one of the reasons...

Re: 66 88 Searle Safari LHD

That registration doesn't come up on the UK DVLA database, so was probably exported before the records were computerised. There is a process for trying to get historic info from the DVLA, but it's very restricted now due to GDPR (privacy) which tightened things up a year or so ago! However, we do kn...

Re: 66 88 Searle Safari LHD

Hi Rod, I'm not sure there will be a lot missing, apart from the seats and possibly a table :shrug: The rear windows have probably been added by a previous owner - I think the Safari usually had van sides. Have you checked the brochures in the member's only section of the forum HERE and HERE ? I'm s...

Re: Rear Parabolic Springs and shocks

Patrick's, Phillip's and one of my Project Carawagons are all on 4 leaf rear parabolics, and do sit a little high. Steve's Carawagon is on 3 leaf parabolics (actually 4 leaf with one leaf removed) and is a little saggy at the back end! The Carawagon I'm currently using is on standard leaf springs, b...

Re: Newark Vintage Tractor & Heritage - 8th-10th Nov

Seems like they were trying a new exit policy this year, which I'm sure was great for the tractors as they were loading up on to their trailers before we were allowed to even move. That meant, by the time we got out on to Drove Lane, all the HGV tractor trailer units were joining the queue in front ...

Re: Newark Vintage Tractor & Heritage - 8th-10th Nov

Hi Ian, You have to book in individually for this show. However, applications closed September 13th :thud: , but they usually allow late entries for outside stands like ours - they are a lot more strict on the inside display areas! There's usually space on the LR stand, which is shared with some cla...

Re: Newark Vintage Tractor & Heritage - 8th-10th Nov

Hi Rob, If you're turning on to Drove Lane from the A46 roundabout, take the second right turn. (The first is to Newark Golf Centre.) If you look at the satellite view on Google Maps you'll see the second right opens up on to a large hard-standing area. Head for the portacabin and get your pass from...
