Yeah, but it would be nice to see them the right way around, and larger without faffing around clicking.👍

Who did I pass on the M6 North today then? Late 2a 109", bronze green, YAA ***J or similar. I was in my 88"

To be fair an all new Spotted thread could refer to anything. Even a suspect named pudding... I like the idea of keeping it vague. It becomes an "anything of interest" thread.

Mine is sitting taller than I'd like; the backend is a little taller than the front as well. The Rocky Mountain Parabolics haven't 'settled' yet even though everything but the roof, sidewalls and rear door have been attached since 2019.

In the attached pic you can see it. The wife is 5'2"/157.48cm tall.

Mpudi: So how did the land rover get up the tree?
Steyn: Do you know she has flowers on her panties?

Larry I'd expect the rear to sit a bit higher than the front. It looks better than dragging its rear end round like a knackered Pinzgauer. They do sit high those RM springs though. I think it suits it though.

It doesn't bother me as much now as it did when it was all put together.  I know installing the top will lower the backend a bit as well.

The main issue though is the front propeller shaft isn't installed.  When I went to install it in 2018 it was at its full extension. I was told then that the parabolics need to relax more.  In 2019, with most of the body panels attached, it was still too extended to install. I was then told to drive it over bumpy terrain a bit to relax them.  I did that, but still not enough.  This time last year I attempted again to attach it and at that time it was a lot better, but still extended.  I'm getting ready to make another attempt, hopefully it'll work this time.

On the bright side though... SWMBO is starting to insist on sidesteps.  It's good when the spouse starts to insist on adding options!

I'm guilty of that.  When I  first installed the doors I had them backwards and upside down.
