FOX remote reservoir dampers for Mk2 Range Rover P38

Well we had to move to the end game….

Now the full weight is finalized at 2800kg, we now  have the correct springs from Spring Coil Ltd in Sheffield , then all that is left is to have the right dampers

so here they are ->
FOX 2.0" racing shocks smooth bore for Range rover P38 Mk2
Fox 2.0″ remote reservoirs with 10 way clickers, set up by the excellent Paul at Prolinx suspension

Prolinx for all your FOX damper requirements

 Not that I wanted a Dakar race Range Rover … Honest 🙂 just some high speed scenic drives 🙂

bush to fit Defender/Disco 1/RRC dampers to P38 Range rover
This is how neat they fit, this is the Front LH
small cut to allow the elbow to clear the chassis

The cut in the rear chassis is about 25mm wide. on the Exhaust side I cut the bar that supports the exhaust silencer just to help clearance if the bush get worn.( the photo is looking upwards, the yellow spring is the top of the spring)

The reservoir has to be on the side to clear the roost guard, there is just enough hose to allow it, the union can be slacked of to allow it to twist without de-gassing the damper.

Once I had an Icht but then I got a cream from the quack.

So on one campsite it was mentioned that Icht was a cool place to visit.

Well we headed south for the sun and found Icht down on the boarder of Algeria, we also found a nice French run campsite full of overlanders and decided to use it for WiFi and showers and we also found…. Well not very much else, just a very quiet and serene location, however sometimes things do work out .in the end

On the wall of the campsite were some interesting places to visit locally, one was Amtoudi , a grain store set like a castle on a big hill, so off we went. On the way we passed a sign for rock carvings so in we popped ,it was a few KM off the tarmac down a piste to a very neat museum building and some nice locals living at the rear of the very modern toilet block, strange what there is in the desert down here

Do you like what I have done with my tool ?
Some ancient vandals mutilated the lovely rocks 10,000 years ago.

The rock carvings  were dated from 10,000 years ago and were interesting there were also ritual female burial mounds, but the best bit was the local guide told us of a nice track to Amtoudi, result!! It cut the corner and came out just before the campsite with all the plastics on it,

 

The canyon beside Amtoudi was cut in the rocks was impressive as was the climb up the mountain to see the grain store.

 

 

 

 

Did we or didn’t we go up there?

 

Thought for today !, when does graffiti turn into art?

how is it that a sprawled spray-tin paint job on a tram isn’t art but a Banksy is.?

a scratched horse on a rock in the desert is priceless ancient artefact and national treasure , the one did today is just vandalism.
