Occupational Therapist. I remember now putting new springs on that 109 about 12 years ago when it  belonged to my mate Josie and then a  new clutch slave cylinder when Andy bought it from Josie then new window runners when Cags bought it from Andy. Then it drove all the way to Orkney from Derby with the starter motor still on because the ignition switch failed. Before the springs were changed I borrowed the lwb to tow my lwt back home on a trailer. I had the lwb the wrong way round on the trailer and with the old springs n shocks being very bouncy on the safari, we boinged along for about two miles before the lwt and trailer tried to oevrtake me on the A5. All the supermarket skid pan training cut in as we snaked up the A5 and Im pleased to say we hit nothing but it's true to say that you could smell the fear. I wish I had bought that safari when it was available.
All the right bits, but not necessarily in the right order.
