Landrover improvements: Soft Furnishings and Other Manly Things

in mancave •  20 days ago 

Last time I wrote about boring old mechanic and boy stuff like winches and engines and Roamer drive. You know, grease monkey stuff like replacing the engine mounts. Yawn.

Now it's at the more exciting but, you know, soft furnishings and 12V set ups. Sorry, can't afford a lithium battery yet @revisesociology but looky looky - cigarrette plug in for back to run compressor or whatever, USB port and fancy Engel fridge all hooked up.

Funny thing, I got it 500 bucks cheaper. I had a full on argument with the woman that the box was NOT the on sale model. It wasn't even same code. The on sale one was what I went in for, as new models are pricey, though I coveted the new dark grey one! Honestly, fifteen minutes spent trying to prove it was NOT last year's model. She was so insistent to the point of grumpy, so in the end i had to just take it. Got home, and yep, it IS the new model. What could I do? Saved me 500 bucks. And she INSISTED. I couldn't even speak to store manager as he wasn't there. Oh well.

It's sooo cosy in there and comfortable!!!! Pretty happy with the easy set up. Jamie also made an overhead cupboard. We got some silver bubble windscreen covers from Kmart we cut down to size for some extra protection for winter camping too. Note big bulldog clips. They come in SUCH handy for all sorts of things, I tell you.

Sadly, Jamie then discovered it's stuck in 4WD. So Saturday night and he's doing more hard yakka under the chassis - the guy has patience of a saint.

Love the neat setup and that's a great bargain on the fridge👍

Cheers!! I know the back of Landrover are often 'shove it all in ' Or lots of boxes. We still can fit in all we need with a bit of organisation... I felt bad but she INSISTED. Guess they'll claim in on insurance anyway.

Good day. It's always fun to watch people rework or modernize something when it brings benefits and convenience. A good article that inspires to work and creativity. Thanks you.

It looks really nice, that must be one mega efficient cool box for that price!

Bet you can't wait to get going!

Oh, that place looks so comfortable and glowing with harmony!!
if I was there with you I wouldn't leave that place 🤣

I'm so happy for you, wonderful things are happening!!! 💙

Looks like you're making some great progress. This looks mighty cosy indeed, and fit for an adventure or two. Good luck with getting the 4WD system un-stuck, I hear its quite a common problem with these old 4x4s :-)

Really nice! You've certainly made the most of the space! Love the pillow covers and all too!
