    Ahh, the "wedge loads of box section in there" school of lowering. :(

    Then again it's a landy, so it was bound to be awful :p

    Bryn's already started on lowering it properly. :) That's how the guy who built it did it. It's going four-linked with a panhard rod for lateral location and coilovers :)

    Other than the body panels, no.

    Blind hatred of marques is idiotic.

    It was built to get around the 'pre-49' rules set in place by boring people who say a car can't be a 'hot rod' if it was made after '49.

    Said people usually drive identikit black '32 Fords.

    So the landie is a hot rod. ;)

    SD1 Vitesse engine should ensure it has a little grunt.

    Ah, ok.

    I always (stereotypically, agreed.) thought a hot rod was something along the lines of this...

    ...and not a Landrover with the suspension dropped :confused:

    That Landy is to Awesome for words & far to good for comments like above.
    I'll sit back & copy & paste these pics for posterity & judge others by what they say about this motor.
    I've not seen owt like it which makes it completly unique to me I think it's Brilliant.

    A 'traditional' hot rod is 'pre-49', modified using bits and bobs salvaged from other cars.

    Bryn's S1 fits that description.
