That's at the house Josh (crash303) and I share... we are roommates. It's the best way to have rover addictions; it's kind of like a drug house, but instead of being strung out on smack we are usually in the garage tinkering with one thing or another, and neither of us have a wife whining about it.

4 rovers is enough right now... a 65 Series IIA, 84 Tdi 90, 97 ST D90 (josh's), and an 05 LR3 HSE. Each have their own purpose and quirks.

As far as mods to the Tdi, I need to replace the suspension, whatever is on there is harsh. I was thinking progressive springs of some kind, I haven't even really looked yet. After that is lockers... haven't decided if I want to go air lockers or detroits or trutrack. Since the Tdi has the gas tank under the passenger seat, the back has lots of room for an aux air tank, which would come in handy when airing up.

I am also going to put in a decent sound system, I am actually planning on a nerdy touchscreen car-pc setup that also has topo maps on it. The plan is to get a cargo area tuffy box against the seats and put the electronics in there, keeping them fairly safe. I already have a 2 meter radio for it. I am going to put in a Mud-UK dash kit up front for the touchscreen and 2 meter radio head.

Later after my bank account has recovered and I am done paying taxes in April I am going to start looking at bumper/winch options.

my plan too, have you seen the rear speaker boxes made by Defendoor? (http://www.defendoor.co.uk/Defender-rear-speakers.php). I'd like the idea of a nice touchscreen satnav head unit with bluetooth (for both audio and internet tethering).

If it's a gas engine, yeah you will have to. If it's a diesel and not 2008 or newer, you shouldn't.

The whole DMV mess in nothing new, years ago I bought a 1963 Triumph TR6SS motorcycle from California very original the problem was someone mistook a badly written 7 for a Y and put a Y in the middle of the VIN on the title . Had to jump through numerous hoops to get the title re-issued in spite of the fact it was clearly a clerical error

Andrew,

Read this thread in its entirety. Technically, it's illegal-ish, maybe. If you get real lucky, the DMV might do it for you.

As far as paperwork, you have the title I hope. If Colorado shows the type of engine on the title, hopefully it says "D". You won't need anything other than the title and a very sympathetic DMV worker.

If after reading this whole thread, let me know if you still have questions.

Nothing nerdy about a carPC... i've got one in the 110, and built a few for friends

The miniITX board is a good thing to use, compact and (thse days) pretty powerful, especially if you stick XP on it which isn't as power hungry as 7 or vista.

I use (here in the UK) memory map, which is similar to your topo stuff, with a GPS or USB GPS receiver on it, gives you live positioning etc. really good fun.

Plus i've got all my tech files on there, microcat, RAVE etc and all manner of LR related stuff, so it's like a mobile dealership with tech files!

Got a few of my favourite films on there, and music, which i can play via my stereo head unit.

oh yeah, and a wifi dongle on the rollcage, so i can surf the web wherever there's unsecured access

great thread. i went through this same process pretty much to the "t". pay attention to the advice of "play dumb", its key. i had to go to a few DMVs, but once i got through that vehicle verification line i was golden. i wouldnt say it was border line illegal, i think the DMV emplyees just dont see these enough to know what to do. Its also a grey area because some documents say anything older than 25yrs automatically meets federal standards which should mean its legal for all 50 states as long as the emission standards are met and in california anything diesel and older than 1998 is exempt. dont try to explain any of this to them though, they dont want to hear it and will just refer you to the CHP, and do not go there, trust me.

this carpc closely describes my setup. i like that it can't become obsolete as components are easily upgradeable. plus lack of topo on off-the-shelf units made it an easy decsion.

Congrats Navydevil on getting your rover in clean to CA. However, I think since you serve out country in the military you should be able to import a 2011 in the back of a C-130...Just my opinion
