That and a proper land rover is just a large mecanno set so as long as you don't start chopping things or get rid of the original bits going back to standard is always an option. They'd love a guy near me he's chopped 2 feet out of a range rover and made it a pick up...
our series landrovers have got to stay original old chap I'm forever taking the piss out of the for it,
Keeping things original isn't my style its was built to be smashed off road and get me home after

Re: The bigish green landy

Well nothing really going on as yet waiting for it to warm up but there's is a plan of action so it's not sat around when it's finished and I'm driving around in my sei

So the plan is my dad's going to use it and take his discovery off the road so we can get on with some jobs we keep saying we're going to do but never get around to it

So future plans engine change
that will be three engines if this one goes ahead so a 200tdi will be the way to go even if I really really want to go v8 but 180bhp on a box that's on really rated for 70 it's going to blow it up I know people run them on the series gearbox but when I'm off roading I can get a little heavy footed so the 200tdi at 111bhp should be fine

Also finish off painting
Geting harnesses
Make some rocksliders
Finish the rollcage
Fit fuel tank plus plumming
Brakes and lines
Fit the leaf spring chassis Bush that I've been meaning to do to finish the lift
Longer shocks maybe custom mounts ect
Weld in the engine mounts as there the same mounts for the 200tdi
Wire roof lights and bonnet pod
Wire all other lights up
Finish the kingcab back
Bonnet pins as the front ends off a defender not a series 3
Fit rear winch
Wire front winch up
Maybe get some disco axles under her without going coilsprung disc brakes all round then

Wish list
Limited slip diffs front and rear

Some rims with a slightly bigger offset

Few pictures of various thing land rover related and the odd picture of my dad's disco

Re: The bigish green landy

Quite recently I went to another landrover show billing I think it was and found some aches

Took delivery of my new axles I made a start on cutting all the un wanted stuff off them

Also my Detroit rear locker also arrived

And finally not joke after atleast 2years it's finally back of all 4 springs and not sat on an axle stand on one side

Re: The bigish green landy

So getting back into the landrover now yes that does me the yellow cinqs on the back burner for abit, BUT I've worked out I've had this around 4-5ish years now and I've never ever drove it in all them years so I'd be a shame to just have it sat there rotting away and tbh I do miss going off-roading haven't done a lot of it with the old mans disco being off the road too

But anyway Saturday after work I started by getting the rear axle off and got that on the floor so here's a few pictures

Old axle vs new I think I've said it before I ideally wanted disc brakes all round but I'll be keeping the drum rear axle in turn that means I should have to change my master cylinder in theory anyway we shall find out when it's actually on the road

Then another busy day Sunday when I decided it was a good idea to turn it into a hovercraft and pull the front axle off too

Started finishing off the new rear axle still yet to work out what brackets I don't need but I've got the old coil spring hanger cut off

Then comes the very expensive part and that's ordering new parabolic leaf springs, u bolts, and the new spring perches to weld onto the axles so hopefully I'll be able to make a start on getting the new rear axle all on up and nearly ready to weld up

So should hopefully have the axle set up right this weekend this pinion angle ect then it can be welded up and bolted back on then the fun stuff begins before the fronts going to be a touch harder then the rear but I'll explain more on that when I actually do it
