Hello from SW Lancashire

Postby Ricko on Sun May 14, 2017 7:51 pm

Hi,
Just bought my first Frontera yesterday. Always had SIII Landys in the past but have seen the price of them start to go silly. Always liked the look of the Frontera from years ago.
One owner 2000 LWB 2.2 dti with MOT til the end of Jul, paid £700 which I thought seemed OK.
I need to patch the rear part of the sills as they are starting to go slightly and will redo the brakes before it goes for test in Jul.
Cheers
Ricko

I'm just in Ormskirk.
Just doing a few jobs to the Frontera before putting it on the road.
Then I'll be out and about to do some green laning!
