    It is possible with some work to upgrade the studs to Freelander you can get
    black nuts to fit.

    Here is a write up by a Triumph owner

    Looking well but the chassis does look like it needs some TLC.

    The rear, windscreen back, looks to have been tended to but yes the engine bay sections need work which I hope to do when the engine is out.

    I’m still wondering whether I go for a recon of the straight six, which seems to be around £8k when paying someone to do it, or £10k for an electric conversion kit fitted by me and a qualified auto electrician.

    Both costs are out of reach at the moment though!
