Re: Rover rims 16".

I'm pretty sure Daryl's wheels are off a P38, which should fit your D2. Give him a call, the price is definitely right.

Pennask Rd

I burried my P38 on the newer section of the road to the Pennask Lake Provincial Park. This road avoids several km of the rough road. I would suggest avoiding this road, or approach with caution.

1X 255/55R18 Michelin on Alum LR wheel

Michelin 4X4. Tire is in very good condition, the aluminum wheel has a bit of mild corrosion where a balance weight was previously. Wheel is 8JX18X57AH2 original Land Rover. The style doesn't match mine, and I already have good spares. $100.

I had these springs made for my 2A a number of years ago, and only used them a few months. They are very heavy duty, and so, rough off road, but fit and work well otherwise. I just want to clean up the yard, so if anyone would like them, please come and get them.

Re: Brake lines

With a brake line flairing tool (not terribly expensive) you can fairly easily make your own to fit perfectly. The double flairs are a bit finicky, but with a few practice flairs you'll get it. Standard NAPA fittings seem to work just fine.
