Finally did the windscreen fixings today, then took her out for a "Dual Carriageway test" :shock:

Well, got to 60mph and the roof stayed on :thumbsup: , little bit of flapping but nothing serious, so really happy with the end results.

So rememberl, the width of a Mahindra is very close to that of a Series Land Rover, which then allows you (perhaps with a bit of bending) to use the sticks from a Land Rover as well as a canvas hood - I went for a 110 hood, which was a bit too long, but easy to cut down to size........a Very cheap alternative to having one made :thumbsup: (Total cost about £100, but I've seend hoods go quite cheaply on eBay)

Cheers

Winning bidder contacted me.......didn't bit on it, was a ,mistake.....blah....blah.....blah..... :shock:

2nd bidder had zero feedback and hasn't come back......so looks like still have her, going to get my money back from eBay, but to be honest am secretly pleased as I thought £1600 was low.

Any advice, thoughts what's it worth and what should I do next?

Who are these f*ckin idiots on eBay ? What are they trying to achieve ? :banghead: I thought the price was a bit low, probably because I paid more for mine. Good luck, try sticking in some military magazines and on HMVF ;)
