Subject: CSK #171 here in Oz. "HELP"
Hi all, I am currently looking at buying CSK #171 here in Oz. smiling smiley

However I have 2 problems, #171 is in West Australia and I'm in Melbourne, 3,500 ks away. The seller has been quite up front and sent some "rot" shots indicating a "shot" upper tail gate and and some unhealthy looking bubles at the top of the bonnet near the air intake. The car did I believe spend 10 years in Scotland before coming to Oz. in 1991. While I have always loved the " Classic" I know bugg-r all about them.

Are there any other places that are common for rot to set in..?

I would really appreciate any help I can get. eye rolling smiley

Cheers,
Tom

All classic RRs rot in the sills, the top and bottom tailgates, the rear wheel arches (where the seat belt mounts are), on the A pillar, inner front wings and bulkhead.

Having said all that, it is perfectly possible to fix any and all of the above. The bulkhead is probably the biggest pain of a problem, but even that is not insurmountable.

Cheers Stu....appreciate your advice.

It's now a cost benifit analysis as to what I pay for it V the potential cost of repairs. Just got to keep the emotions out of it...!

Regards,
Tom

...it's a classic Range Rover - better than that a CSK... it will *ALWAYS* cost you money!
