    Default Hello everyone!

    Hi All,

    I'm Travisty, hailing from Darling, WC.

    I have a 2002 Land Rover Defender 110 Td5 (Patricia Lewis) and a 2002 Lada Niva 1.7 Carb (Eva).

    Enjoy day trips out with the family and planning our first over-landing trip to Botswana in the Land Rover the beginning of 2019.

    Already learned a bit before joining the forum and thought it would be good to be able to say thanks for all the helpful advise and hopefully meet new like minded people.

    Cheers

    I have had the Lada since early 2015, she is a gem! There is only 53000km on the clock so the engine is still "new" despite the vehicles age.

    The longest trip I have done with it was JHB-CPT (in 1 day) and went slow but well. The only problem was a bush repair job I did on the exhaust broke and ended up shearing completely in front of the first silencer, a few pipe clamps later and was back on the go, I went to an exhaust shop the next day and had the whole silencer removed and a straight pipe put in.

    Other than that I have kept it as standard as possible, the clutch we replaced but was for my own peace of mind and the part were from Midas. There is a good Lada group around SA with plenty of knowledge and lists of replacement parts from other vehicles so the myth of "no parts available" isn't too true. Besides that there is an online store where you can order literally every part to build the car so if you don't mind waiting a few weeks for parts it good.
