its easer to get bits for landys thats why a lot of folk like them because the market for after market bits and add ons is huge.
when you start a job on any type of vehicle no matter what it is you always approach them the same way.
as every one has basicly the same engine configuration the internals mostly operate in the same way apart from the wankile
suspensions all do the same thing they go up and down no matter if its hydronewmatic or coil and shock or leaf and shock
basicly under the skin they all look the same just in different ways Very Happy the only reason i build fronters is there are thousands of land rovers out there and they all look the same but a moded frontera are far and few between

Best of luck mate hope you get it.

And thats true about the frontys you dont see many modified ones going up and down the road.
All there running gear is Izuzu so ther easy to get parts for to if you no where to look.

Congrats Dicky, that's excellent news!

Is it a main dealer or an independent you're working for?
