RH Front Fender SIIA needed

The neighbors trees attacked my 1966 SIIA wagon again!



This one tagged the roof (again) but the top of the tree broke off and smashed the RH front fender, tearing the sheet metal and creasing it pretty severely.



The neighbor was very apologetic and offered to pay for a replacement if I can find one. The last time this happened a 14" diameter tree fell into the 18" gap between the Land Rover and my fiberglass Boler travel trailer, smashed the privacy fence and put a small ding in the tropical roof panel. That tree was so heavy it would have smashed either one of its intended targets but luckily it fell right into the gap.

This time I wasn't so lucky but it was only a dead six inch tree. I'm just glad it didn't smash my very rare 1968 Kyote dune buggy body.

So if anyone has a straight right front fender for a mid-sixties SIIA let me know.



The previous attack almost exactly 6 years ago...

I may be stating the obvious here, but you either need to cut those trees or find another place to park your treasures.
That wing is very repairable. You may have to udo every spot weld, but you can straighten that. It may be easier than finding another.

It's pretty bent and the metal is torn right at the seam at the inside corner where the front panel attaches to the fender top. My last attempt at welding up holes in Land Rover bodywork didn't work out too well so I thought I'd try the Easy button first.

The outer panel isn't correct anyway - I have the original piece but it's pretty torn and wrinkled. I'll fix this one if I have to but it won't be easy.

And I really need to build a garage in the back yard - maybe this will convince the wife that I really do need one.

I have a nice outer, and will check the other truck for the balance in the am.

A new one would ruin the patina....

Jack - I have 2 complete RHS wings. One has the heater hole (with the wire guard on it). Both are faded marine blue.

Let me know

The patina will be going away when I restore this old beast to as new condition. I've owned this truck for over 35 years and after the way I've neglected it for the last ten years it deserves to be pampered. It was originally Limestone - back in 1966 it cost $4575.90 brand new. It has over 375,000 miles on it. I'm retiring next year and this is one of the projects that I have been putting off until then.

Thanks

Originally this truck had a plain sided front fender - the air intake for the heater is at the grill. Send me some pictures and what you need for the fender - I'm looking for something pretty straight with the two light bosses in the front panel. Color doesn't matter as the truck will be repainted.

By the way I was trying for marine blue when I had the truck repainted back in 1980 - the paint shop painted it some kind of Peugot blue directly on the bare metal (no primer at all). As you can see it was NOT a great quality job....

Word. Those exact same ganglia were firing in my brain.

Jack, you always have good stories...and even better pictures...to accompany your vehicles.

Love the picture of the first time tree fall; lying between the two vehicles.

Good luck in your future retirement/resto.
