Hello to one and all

Diverted my attention this way after a friendly tip off via RangeRover.net

I am no stranger to the green oval brand. Owned my D2 for close to a decade before a strange stray into german saloon territory. Quickly got bored of that and Picked up my RRS 2010 early last year.

Now I also have picked up a project in my newly acquired 1995 P38 4.0 SE.

She needs plenty of attention but being my second motor, I know I can take my time and still get to work come Monday morning. Also means hopefully I can get back out into the greenlanes and camping again which im missing a lot.

Lockdown hasn't affected me too much as I have been working through out with my engineering work I do. But work and home and then back to work 6 maybe 7 days a week has got me wanting to get out even more so. My rugby certainly doesn't look like its coming back anytime soon, so my wife told me I needed something to do so that I wouldn't keep getting under her feet like a grumpy bear.

Hello to all and look forward to this new adventure

Yes thats me and Gilbert, what is overtime for if you cant catch up on the forums.

On a plus side I can now get to the trim via the tailgate instead of climbing over the chairs

I'd check those tailgate straps carefully before putting too much weight on it. My 52kg daughter broke mine by sitting on the tailgate. The bearings on each end seize up and they rust under the plastic.

I wont lie

I gently lowered my 134kg frame on to it one finger at a time. But I will check the straps properly today just incase it was the rust and good wishes holding me up rather than the straps

That looks like great project, like the tail pipe.

Even better that some scrotes have cut both the cats out the exhaust.

That will be something that may need sorting ha

Is it on LPG? If it is, you don't need them, just a straight bit of pipe. If it isn't best price you'll find is Maltings Off Road https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/range-rover-p38-catalytic-converter-p38-v8-downpipes-with-cats-wcd000860-99-my/252021472328 although that looks expensive when you consider the full system is https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/range-rover-p38-exhaust-system-p38-V8-exhaust-system-complete-front-rear-94-99/272214722398

Luckily with a bit of engineering and as if by magic. We repair as a temporary fix to quiet the V8 down and make it a bit more friendly for the time being
