Wheel Refurbishment

Now wishing I had taken a before shot.

This wheel was silver and majorly curbed, repaired and opted to go Black…..

Rangerover run to the mountain

So a while ago I was invited along on a road trip with the ‘New Zealand Range Rover and Land Rover Discovery’ club, after following their Facebook page.  I thought I would pop up a few of the pics that appeared on FB.

Was great to be a part of the convoy of Wellington Rangies. We had a meet up in Paraparaumu, as I was a newbie I got to meet the group and as it turned out I new a couple of the vehicles and drivers. (Scarey when I remember regos…)

From here we convoyed through to Sanson where we picked up a couple more and made our way through to the army museum in Waiouru. We had a great line up of range rovers and a landy. Not sure I’ve seen so many in one spot outside of the workshop.

I had other plans from here and had to leave the group.. Looks like a great time had up in the snow off the dessert road.

For me coming home to Wellington on Sunday I encountered a lot of snow, grateful to be in my 4wd.

Evoque Range Rovers increasing in numbers…

Starting to see these on the streets of Wellington.  Currently researching importing one in from the UK, trying to find the right one… We had a nice blue diesel one in this week.

Nice surprise today to see a brand new Range Rover with less than 1000km’s on the clock.  Super nice guy, shame I was too busy to take up the offer of giving it a drive, left that to the tech’s
