Razor edge bonnet fitted

Cutting-edge Landy goodness and some musical catching up… I cannot believe the summer is nearly over, so many plans, then so many non Land Rover problems to deal with, and then the heat wave that we’re supposed to relish but in reality it was all too much. I hope for an Indian summer so that…
