Wanted

Logs or ramps suitable for parking on
Invicta Land Rover Club previously owned a collection of logs suitable for parking on at displays. Over time these rotted and we now all display on the flat. To gain our former reputation, we are looking for strong, smooth, durable logs - similar to those in the pictures.

The club are also considering using ramps instead. These would then be decorated to look like rocks. The added benefits of ramps include they are much more durable, they are lighter and easier to transport/store, and they are easier/safer to use in the wet.

If any members know where we could source logs or ramps (ideally for free, but possibly negotiable), please inform johnthedrummer@hotmail.co.uk.

Missing

Unfortunately, Land Rovers are a high theft tarfet for criminals ... easy to steal, easy to break into parts, or easy to sell at a high price. Security ideas are further down, but listed here are trucks stolen from friends of the club.

Security

To fight back against the theft of Land Rover's, we should all consider protecting our trucks as much as possible.

Below are a selection of Security devices some of our club members use and would recommend:

There are enless products on the market for protecting your vehicle, and endless varieties of each product. Below are just a select few that club members have suggested:

  • Disklok
  • Deadlock (for doors)
  • Gear Lock
  • Security Etching on Windows
  • Safe T Pedal (or similar)
  • Tracker
  • Isolation / Kill Switch (hidden in car)
    Free Ideas
    Below are some suggested ideas that will not cost you a thing, but may delay a thief long enough to save your vehicle:
