just thought id post to say hi, im new to the forum. without wanting to sound like im doing a class talk. im from inverness and im looking to get into 4x4 driving, its always apealed to me, the ironic thing is i got my first 4x4 a 3door import hilux surf, but ended up selling it as my missus was pregnant and couldnt get in [ courtesy of the lift kit], now 4 years down the line my son is actualy the reason im buying another!! he love anything with wheels [dont know where he gets it from].
i bought a pretty rusty vitara [ arent they all??] people from inverness will have seen it its red with a arb bumper, snorkel and a calmini lift, r plater. the guy i bought it froms brother is very into his 4x4s and i belive is or was a member of h4wdc.
anyway so far ive cut most of the rot from it ready for welding bought some spots and am planning a winch and a coat of satin NATO green a'la paint roller style.
im leaving the carpets out and im doing my best to seal her up for some wading fun.
so you should notice it knocking around by the end of the month.
i see alot of nice 4x4s round our area it was cool to come on here and spot them again, so in the past when youve driven past an AA man in his van drooling at your landy that was probably me.
ill stick some pics up of the vits rebuild if anything its good for a laugh for you landy owners.
cheers Laughing

cheers, yeah its definetly seen better days. its not so much that thats bothering me, its that the metal is so thin and shitey that these are made of, im having a great time trying to snotter patches on to it with burning holes in it.
