After all the fun and excitement of my new old Skoda purchase today, I had a spare hour in which I decided to fix up the Defender's rear crossmember.

I thought it was fine, just in need of a lick of paint, but 20 years has taken its toll and it has to be replaced, so I've cleaned it up a bit and sealed it for now. It looks shit in black instead of green, and what's more when removing the bumperettes I clonked the indicator housing with the impact driver :(

So now I've grumpified myself. Can't have it all I guess.
