    Impressions after my 60km drive home.

    So much space in the engine bay.
    So neat in the engine bay.
    Gone to depress the clutch on start up more than once!
    Relatively quiet with just a lovely, unobtrusive rumble in the cabin.
    Engine bay noise is remarkably quiet.
    Effortless driving, and I sat myself back in the seat a few times.
    Quite novel leading the pack at the traffic lights!
    Effortless driving.
    The vehicle just feels tight, no rattles, shakes or hesitancy.
    Did I mention effortless driving?

    The whole experience dealing with Andrew and Paul at Les Richmond Automotive at Thomastown Victoria was Gold standard. Lovely blokes, nothing is an issue and first and foremost, they are Professionals who work to a no compromise level of work.

    Im more than happy with my decision, the cost, the service, the work, and the end product.

    Now to head into the desert once Lock down allows, if at all before the end of the access season, and most of all, thanks for all the lovely comments re this process, the build and messages of support fellas.

    Im not a wealthy person, being an injured, pensioned out Veteran who is by them self, so this was a project to support and treat myself and my morale after a full on 6 years post injury, loss of career, health, old me, as much as modding the vehicle.

    I very much appreciate the members here.👍

    I moved on to the ADF in 88.
    I reckon the current state government in Vic realise big time how short sighted the closure of Fairfield was in the 90's.

    Could have accommodated a lot of the C19 patients without the risks associated with putting them in general hospitals across Vic.

    It's shocking watching staff in those facilities on TV dealing with highly infectious patients with inadequate expertise at times.

    Talk about the ultimate sleeper . Itís so quiet in the videos.

    You are going to leave quite a few of the backward hat wearing comod P player brigade scratching their heads wondering what just happened and how did they just get owned .

    looking forward to hearing a detailed follow up in a couple of months on how it is all going.

    need to water my money tree for my D2
    congratulations and enjoy the beast.

    cheers, Chris

    Congratulations Ken. You now have a very unique and remarkable vehicle that is the envy of a lot of Defender owners.....especially me.
