ʻLetʼs not dwell on the negativesʼ Yay, another lockdown in the UK ― just the start to the year we didn’t want. Admittedly most of us saw it coming, but that still didn’t lessen the disappointment when the announcement was made. But let’s not dwell on the negatives; let’s look forward to spring and the warmer days ahead of us ― and we can spend the time preparing our Land Rovers. The long nights mean you’ll be working under lights ― and you may well be improving your Land Rover’s candlepower, so turn to p106 for some illuminating advice. Or you may simply use the time to give it a service – as I found last month, I’d neglected to replace the fuel filter on one of my Land Rovers for a few…

tip-top camper

‘Morocco was specifically what this 110 was built for ― a once-in-a-lifetime trip’ Our inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes. For Coastline Campers boss Errol Wright, it arrived in the form of a rally adventure to Mongolia in an old Fiat Punto a little over 10 years ago. On his return from Ulaanbaatar with his appetite for overlanding truly whetted he bought first one and then another Defender 110, a TDCi that he converted into a camper. With a career in carpentry, measuring, cutting and fitting woodwork in all sorts of bespoke situations, the job held no fears for Errol. The first 110, a 300Tdi, went into storage until he had time to convert that too. Eventually, both were sold to finance a third 110, this time a Td5. Instead of a…

travelling to europe?

UK citizens planning to visit or travel through mainland Europe once it’s safe to do so again will find that many rules have changed now the UK has left the European Union. We can expect more paperwork, restrictions on what you can take into the EU, and more expensive mobile phone roaming charges. Here’s the full list: • Passports. You’ll need to get a new British passport if it has less than six months’ validity left. As well as EU countries, this also applies if travelling to Iceland, Liechenstein, Norway and Switzerland – but does not affect travel to Ireland, as long as the passport doesn’t expire during the trip. • Driving. If you have a photocard driving licence, this will still be legal in EU countries, along with Iceland, Liechenstein, Norway and…

German composer Harold Faltermeyer picked up a special present at Christmas in the form of a 1952 80-inch Series I. The Beverley Hills Cop and Top Gun composer visited Land Rover Classic Works in Warwickshire in 2018 and saw the appeal of owning a Reborn Series I – and this one originally left the Land Rover factory just three weeks before he was born. Fully rebuilt by Land Rover Classic, the 1600cc 80-inch Series I was transported to JLR Classic’s Essen showroom, where it was handed to Faltermeyer and wife Birgitt Wolff just before Christmas.…
