I miss my mud fix! 3c10

Whilst looking for Nettie's Florence tonight in old previous events I came across this picture of me having a great time at the Telford Picnic site Very Happy

That does look fun. I'm not so sure about getting quite so close to the mud though you must end up carring a lot round inside !
I used to go on family trials with a friend who had a Range Rover and that was fun, even took my Transit once but the poor thing was so rusty I didn't want to finish it off. It was so high you only got muddy if you had to get out.

Whats that on the bonnet ?

I was always knocking off the exhaust on my 1st mk2 when off-roading / greenlaning so I built my next mk2 with off-roading in mind. I turned the cast iron exhaust manifold upside down once I'd sawn off the inlet, used an after market ali inlet manifold, bolted a silencer under the front bumper and connected the two via length of flexible exhaust pipe, hence the hump on the bonnet. I later removed the hump and replaced it with a large box so I could lay my camping stove on the bonnet (saves lugging a table round with you). A piece of perforated plate covered the silencer to stop anyone burning their legs.

Brilliant, there was a picture of another with the exhaust sticking straight up through the bonnet.
if you had put a hot plate of some sort on it you could have cooked straight on it !

My uncle used to stuff foil wrapped potatoes in his SD1's exhaust manifolds to cook on long journeys, but that getting off topic.

Have you still got a Scamp other than the MK1 ?
