Land Rover Garages.

So the Homes with Unbelievable Garages thread got me thinking, what does your Rover garage/shop/shed etc look like.

Here is mine, from start to current.

OK so here are a couple pics. Ive go way to much crap piled up in there. In addition to a few Rovers, and a couple BMWs, Ive got alot of building materials for the house we are building. In another month or so I should have most if not all of the house stuff out of there, and Ill have room to actually work on something in there.

A couple highlights.

03) 35w x 40d The main door is directly ahead. Off to the left I designed in the option of another door if I want to ad one at a later date, but it is currently framed in

00) As it sits today

22) pallet rack/workbench

I am a member on that forum and never realized that you were a d90 source forum member. I like the garage and the house look amazing.

You'll notice a little bit of 'gritty kitty' under the Disco. Swivel ball hemorrhage.

Thanks. Its been a long term build, but I can almost see a flicker of light at the end of the tunnel. Once its done, Ill be able to use it as a hostel for wayward D-90 folks on their way to the Rubicon.

As you can see. The garage is filled with my RRC (look at the perfect oil absorbing material). So unfortunately there isn't room for my Camel Trophy 110.
Its kind of sad to see my Camel outside....
This will change after I finish restoring my camel and after I convince my brother to park his car outside.

Luckily I have an unfinished basement which provides a great workspace. This way I can still work on my Camel by taking of parts and working on it inside.

I'm still looking for a cheap place to buy or rent where I could disassemble the Camel this winter and work on it when it is to cold outside. But at the moment I will have to stay in my basement.


So obviously your garage is a lot better!

Agreed... its sick because those are 3 amazing rovers, and you were able to fit them in 1 garage with tools and other stuff.

How long do you think he worked on that set up?

Agreed. The fact that the Rovers are surrounded by climbing gear, instead of an extra fridge is key. Very nicely done.

I don't know, but I've been working on saving for a second Rover for a year at this point. Randy lent me his D2 last year, and long Winter trips in the 90 have not felt the same since. I'll have to snap a picture of my garage, but I live in NYC...it's nothing special!!

Man all you guys saying yours is too small.

I have a "2" car garage that when I pull my mustang in I have 4" of clearance between the nose and the wall and 4" from the rear bumper to the door.

In the other "bay" I have just one row of cabinets along a side wall, and a small work bench and tool box on the end wall...which makes it really a 1.5 car garage. Also - the Defender wont fit (height). Hell my G/F's Accord doesn't even fit legnth wise.


I did gut the whole thing, sheet rocked, added electric (its detached) and made it a HECK of a lot nicer than it was. I'll get some pics up tomorrow. Currenty the Mustang is parked Diagonally and on jack stands so I have ample working room while re-doing the suspension lol. Took about a 25 point turn to wedge it in there like it is now.
