Acrotek LR Spares
Welcome Landy Lovers

Hi Landy Lover, Landy nuts, Overlander's and outdoor types

I hope you enjoyed the few weeks break from the Overlander Chronicles but we bet you still found yourself checking your emails just in case. So there are some mixed emotions regarding the end of the Defender era that has caused a slight frenzy with 2nd hand sales and prices. Luckily not every one has heard that they are almost a collectors item albeit not worth a lot of money but certainly invaluable with endless memories. We have seen a few Defenders changing hands over this last month and one thing we can say is that not everyone is made to own and drive a Land Rover Defender. It takes a rather strong, persistent and patient person to own a Defender but after a few years you just become strong and persistent person that lost their patience after your first trip. Even with losing your patience if you still own a Land Rover and creating daily memories then you know you are one of us. I don't think your laughs and memories would be the same if you were driving another vehicle and personally we are glad to have you apart of the family and look forward to helping you continue moving forward and getting back out there.

Thanks to those who came and visited or even tried out our new LR Spares Express store in Boksburg. It has picked up a lot over the last few weeks so thank you all for the continued support. Remember, if you are looking for something for your Land Rover and Boksburg is closer be sure to call that store and or even arrange that your order to be collected from there. If you have not come in for a visit or a nice warm cup of coffee then be sure to punch 105 Rietfontein Road, Boksburg into your GPS and come say hello.

Just a reminder that the Land Rover Festival is coming up soon and even though we won't have a stall there we will be sure to check it out and hope to see you all there. Only 3 days left for the July Jumble and then we may just have something new for the Winter Clearance this August. Keep smiling and enjoying the travels in your Land Rover as you only have one life, live it.

Landy Festival

Could the Landy Festival be bigger and better this year.

So the buzz for this years Landy Festival has started with only 4 weeks to go and it seems like every event this year is trying to go for the bigger and better approach. In all honesty, we would just settle for better as it seems that while they are worrying about the bigger and better stuff the simple important things get forgotten. We just need a easy to find venue with lots of parking, a few stands showing off all the new gadgets and 4x4 accessories. For those that are camping out for the weekend I am sure they would like some running water, toilets and showers even if it means a little walk from their campsites.

I mean we are not asking for miracles but merely the simple stuff that makes events and camping that much easier. We appreciate the 4x4 tracks and fancy car shows and decent live entertainment but lets remind ourselves that this festival is to celebrate our Land Rover heritage so lets keep it simple and build from there. From what we have heard though it seems like this year could be the one to take us back to our roots and look forward to seeing how it turns out. If you are going to this years Landy Festival be sure to share your pictures with us on our Facebook page.

Pan-American Highway team

Land Rover team returns to complete 1961 voyage

More than 50 years after they came agonisingly close to completing "the ultimate road trip", three adventurers are set to return to Alaska in a bid to finish the last leg of the 40,000-mile journey in the same battered Land Rover which almost took them across the Americas.

By December 1961, a small team of Cambridge graduates, squashed into a Series 2 model, had travelled for 15 months along the Pan-American Highway. Starting at the southern tip of Argentina, the group travelled through 17 different countries until they finally reached the most northerly US state. But just 500 miles short of the Arctic Circle, the road came to an end at Fairbanks, Alaska, and they were beaten back by the harsh winter. Mike Andrews, Ben Mackworth-Praed and Martin Hugh-Jones had to admit defeat and sold their Land Rover to a car dealer in Anchorage to cover their fares home. Click here to read more about it...

History in the making

RIP Land Rover's Defender, was it the greatest vehicle ever?

Tuesday the 30th June was the last day to order a new Land Rover Defender from the UK Factory. In 2013 British car-maker Jaguar Land Rover announced the plan to stop the production of what could be one of the worlds last real cars. I remember the day like yesterday and still remember hearing the words, 'ah it will only happen in the next few years'. Well that time is now and it is really happening so if you own a Defender then you officially own a piece of history.

The original manufacturers Rover, designed the Land Rover Defender based on the old World War II workhorse the American Willies MB. So for all the Landy lovers out there yes, it was an improved version of what is known as a Jeep. Built in a war ravaged country when British farmers needed a cheap sturdy off-road vehicle, Rover used what ever materials they could find and for as cheap as possible.

Acrotek Bash Plates - Land Rover Defender 90, 110 and 130

It's not like you would face a speed bowler without a cup.

A Bash Plate should be one of the first aftermarket accessories you should fit to your Land Rover as it could save you tens of thousands of Rands. Most Defenders are fitted with a basic deflector bar that offers minimal protection where the bash plate cover most of the under belly. It also stops long grass and branches climbing up into the engine well avoiding a damaged belt or broken wires. Click here to read more about them...
