Well two barrel lock sets actually… I’ll fire the proof reader later.
Knowing as I do how much you really look forward to the latest Land Rover repair and maintenance post; here’s another. I have successfully fitted two door locks to the magnificent machine.
When I purchased the Landy it had no door locks. Apparently it’s not uncommon for these ex Army ones not to be fitted with door locks. I suppose the soldiers take their guns and wallets with them when they leave the vehicle. I suppose also they rely on the enemy not being dishonest and nicking their vehicles when they’re all asleep in their tents at night.
I’m sadly not so trusting. I like to be able to leave it parked with a small chance that it’ll be still in the same place when I return to it.
So I fitted some locks. Another mechanical miracle. I am becoming quite the mechanic.
There is the small issue of the fact that neither door window can be locked and it’s a canvas topped ute, so you can climb in the back… but one step at a time.
Oh and a friend has suggested a name for the beast. I’ve not given it one yet. Josh suggested Landy Calrissian. I thought it rather clever and may yet adopt it.
