A coating of grease in the exhaust manifold would do much the same, or you could follow idiot boys example and use a can of bright red paint...
Landrovers and Welding go together like Bread and Butter. And in the wet they are about as structurally sound

Biting. It's like kissing except there's a winner

A good mate of mine fitted a small tube to the exhaust manifold. With a washer bottle full of brake fluid connected to it, it provided a very effective anti-tailgater device.

Interesting; Allegro owners have reported similar effects.
…that's why Allegro will look as good 5 years from now as it does today.

A looooooong time since I updated this thread.

I doubt anyone on here will be interested, but I've decided it's time to part with my MR2. I advertised it for $1500AU yesterday. So far the phone has been running hot with absolutely no calls. :lol:

Some last pics before she hopefully sells.
