It's Great stuff Rob, easy on easy off and lasts well too!!

Poorboys Blackhole would go well with your dark paint, it also has fillers in it that mask swirls and scratches not that yours has any..

The Wax in my case is Nattys Blue they also do white not really any difference apart from the smell, both smell edible..

I've been using a tin of Collinite 915 for the last few years. I've found that to be very easy to use and it gives a great shine.

I've almost run out though :(

@OldShep56.... need to have a big garage as I spend most of my time there cos I usually end up on the wrong side of my misses’ points of view!
I haven't a clue as to its value. I had a correspondence with the folk at LR about the valuation but they seem to think that there is no way to put an appraisal to it. Person in question told me that Landrover had assumed this vehicle no longer existed. Apparently they had located 4 of the 6 originally built except for the one that was stolen back in 2002 and they had mine written off as being untraceable considering it was here stateside and there was no mention of it anywhere until last year when it resurfaced.
She’s insured for 50k but I can insure my dogs back leg for 100 grand so long as I’m willing to pay the monthly payments on it!!!

The Linley in the Pic is mentioned in the P38 Bible and was apparently bought by some weathy businessman and he paid cash!! lol

I'll have to find the book for the specifics!

Great stable of P38s!

That is at least HALF what she should be insured for!! Here in Lincolnshire, we have a firm called Famous Four. They are one of the premier 4x4 companies in the county and they specialise in Land Rovers.Now when I first moved here, they had just finished a complete rebuild of a J reg (think that is 1971) Classic. Every nut and bolt was new. It was up for sale and it went within a month for the asking price ........... £50,000 !!!!! Yes, it was a special, it had some signwriting on it naming the model but it certainly wasn't an only one.
Your car is irreplaceable, Simple as that. I vividly remember the original thread about her over on the other side and everyone's relief when you popped up and said you had purchased it. The blood sweat and tears you have put into that car are an absolute credit to you. I would love to see a series of photos of the interior as well as the exterior. If you have trouble posting them, message me and I'll send you my mail address and I'll post them. Sorry, pal, but I really don't want this beauty to be hidden away lol
In fact, I am going to ask the main man at 4x4, who has become a friend over the last five years, if he can put a rough price on it.
