So you have Just turned and 40 realised you are not immortal. So you quit smoking, start trying to get fit and wonder what else you could do with your mid life crisis???
Well, why not rebuild an old Land Rover that's been sat in a field for 16 years but not in a garage? Oh no, that's for wimps. You'll do the full rebuild on your driveway exposed to the elements armed with only the knowledge a repair manual can give you along with some misguided enthusiasm. You then tell other folk who know much much more than you do on internet forums, wait for the barrage of mick taking and abuse...the results were really quite funny!
