Love it! Glad to see I'm not the only one with a sentimental RRC. It's almost impossible to justify the expense required, but having a garage and doing the labor yourself really helps! Can't wait to see her back on/off the road.

Front passenger seat has been removed tonight as I continue to slowly tear apart the interior. Also got a lot of surface rust off the exposed body.

Found out the hard way that I can't remove larger rust chunks from the trunk/backseat area until I get additional supports setup. Oops!

I didn't realize you had a build thread going for this Patrick. Kudos for the gumption, but like I told you when I saw it, I'm in the "just find a donor with a good body" camp. Heck, the truck Bill gave me would have been perfect for this.

Anyway, good luck, and looking forward to seeing this progress. I say go tray back if not a replacement body.

There are some guys in England who wish they had a truck this solid to start with. And much much worse has been rebuilt before... you just have to be really really commited to the work. I say go for it!

Once you've owned the same RRC for more than a decade, let alone two, it becomes nearly impossible to let go. As Joel mentioned, plenty of guys have restored RRCs with much less to start with. Keep up the good work!

That's a crispy critter as my dad would say about some of the cars from the North East. But after putting more metal back into a Defender bulkhead then what I started with, I say go for it! Especially this truck that you've had for so long.

Keep the pics coming and best of luck

Finally had some time to make some more progress. Realized that it's going to be a pain to get the passenger side doors off since I parked too close to the garage wall. Oh well, worst case I'll just spin the thing around when the time comes. I literally punched a hole in the front bumper too!

You could buy / rent / borrow some wheel dollies to move it away from the wall to remove the doors.

Here is some motivation (not my build, btw)

Owners first photo from a field somewhere in Norway. The car is done now and he documented the build with plenty of photos. Its not concours quality but it was featured in LROI last year some time:
1971 Range Rover - Mitt Prosjekt - LRforum

I think he is on his third RRC now... not sure how he finds the time or motivation

Mine's looking pretty close to that right about now! I've also been keeping up with the rebuilds the EMEA folks have been doing here https://www.facebook.com/groups/53241520146/

I've been going back and forth between fabricating parts, buying from paddock spares or a bit of both. My short list right now is two rear cross members... one for both range rovers. Once that's in place I can really see how I want to finish the floor in the red truck.

On the lower half of the list is foot wells and inner wings to replace. Finally, I'm going to reinforce floor components into the frame-body-mount-wings and my rock sliders.

Related, I have as much of the truck cut up as I feel like I can get done in a considerable amount of time. I'd hate to have the truck fully disassembled and non-transportable just to find out it needs to be moved. New pictures to post, later.

Passenger side floor boards are cut and mocked up. Firewall template is made. Hoping to have firewall and A-post figured out tomorrow night

Have you decided which way you're going with the rear cross-member? I've been mulling the YRM Solutions rear xmember as well the Paddock's, but the raw materials are so cheap, I feel like it would be silly not to at least give it a whack.

That's been a fun debate,... After going underneath the LWB and seeing how simple the x-member is, I'm going to make it myself.

It's 64" long, 3" wide, 4" tall and I plan on salvaging the existing mounting brackets from the old one.

The biggest problem I have right now is that the drivers door doesn't close since welding the a-piller. It's always scrapped the top of the rock slider and now, with the fixes in place, it's just not going to happen... Plan A: re-drill the door mounts and make the necessary adjustments... plan b? Just don't use the doors.

Also, my welding tank has officially dropped below 500psi... Guess I'll really need to get that filled up...

On the plus side to all this:

-Progress is being made
-Doors are BACK ON THE TRUCK!
-I like the blueprints I made - keeping things simple
-No more teardown! (this year )

Will a shim in the hinge fix it?

YRM make some nice pieces. Since I can't weld... buying the piece & having a mobile welder come to do the work was great.

It needs to rotate about 2 or 3 degrees counter clockwise. Not sure a shim will help
