I like a car boot sale I have to admit. I love wandering around looking at what tat folk are selling and I love it even more when its tat I want to buy.

After a day off roading yesterday with the Nottingham Land Rover Club, who are a rather nice bunch of people that all have a laugh and took me and Wifey around the course all day, I realised there were to be many bits I needed to pick up for when my Landy is finally on the road.

With these and other bits in mind myself and Wifey wandered off to Tansley car boot in Derbyshire as we had wanted to before but never had the time. With it being a Bank holiday weekend the site was massive with loads of sellers so I thought there must be some pickings for me here. I was right! As I meandered about I came across a Jerry can that needs a bit of a refurb but still in great condition, a D ring, two snatch straps, around 18 metal grinding discs, cable ties, two small straps to hold the jerry can in place and a brand new padlock and keys to put on the Landy front spare wheel.

Now I like to haggle for a bargain but the prices started off reasonable so of course I haggled harder! The grand total for this collection of very useful bits…

£13 quid.
