THanks Kenny!

I am going to use the same bumper I had on my 90.

It is a first version ARB that I modified back in the day. I moved it back and up then cut the wings.

I really like it. It is also modified for a Warn 8274

Nice. I think ARB should have "cut the wings" like that from the factory.

Looks nice Gustavo. I like it. I like yours better as since mine is the old school first version when I raised it up and moved it in it made the top bar to high for my taste. It is not horrible by any means but your is nicer.

I agree as well never understood the arb wings on these things.

Hi Tyler.

Big progress on your build! Looks better then new. 👍
Love the front seats, they fit the rear seats perfect.
I started afsin too on my project. My brothers RR Classic is ready.
I removed the rear axle and stripping the back part of the chassis for cleaning and painting. Making bigger steps again!

Hope to see more from you soon.

Regards,
Erik

Hi Erik,

Nice shop! Did you lift that body of your frame in one piece with that Lift?

Leuk om meer Nederlanders te zien op dit forum!



Cheers Jeroen

Looks like the frame is actually still on...I think he removed the drivetrain/axles/etc only.

Hoi Jeroen,

Leuk om te zien inderdaad.
Zeker als die andere Nederlander in Canada zit, met een 110!

Back in Englisch.

This ramp is just to lift the compleet car to work on the bottom.
Nathan was right, I removed the rear axle here.

The planning was to just put in a 200tdi engine and change stearing from RHD to LHD.
The more you remove from the car the more you see that needs some attention.

After all it would have been easier to have removed the complete body. I didn't
Two years and still not ready, better late then never .

What are you doing in Canada, except diving an LR110?

Nice meeting you this way.

Groetjes,

Erik (van uit Arnhem)

Yep Jasnon you where right! i looked to fast! I assumed that the body was lifted because they do that a lot in that way in Europe.

For Erik: I am a fly fishing guide and loving it! I use my 110 to get to some very remote places in northern BC.

I will PM you later! Keep up the good work!

Great looking builds so far! I was always curious as to option of changing a 90 into a 110.

Ook leuk te horen dat er meer Nederlanders zijn!

Groeten/Greetings,
Stephan

Actually I'm a hybrid myself, born in Belgium to Dutch parents living in the US with Dutch citizenship, the guys at customs normally just shake their head when I explain my life story.... Great Camel Trophy 110, do you have any history on it?

Finally an update. A big one at that.

Been working hard on this project and am so close to being done it is killing me.

Just gotta find the time.

Not even sure where I left off on this thread.

Fabricated extensions for the custom rear bumper I made years ago for the 90 and go that all welded up.

Got all powder coating done.

Installed, cage, rear bumper, front seats after being re-covered, tuffy box, sunroof, doors etc...

Spent a ton of time waxoyling the doors and building the rear door. My new middle doors came with factory power locks so I decided to buy a universal kit and add power locks to the front doors. Should be a great addition.

Got my custom rack installed as well as the headliner and lighting all ready to go. Interior is almost done.

Worked last night on installing the custom swaybar. I am really happy about it. It is the same one that Buck was talking about. Awesome kit. Took a bit of design work to make it work on a 110 but I think it will be just fine. Wish I could try it out.

Still got a bit to go but the end is very near.

Is it just me or is your passenger brake light a little higher than all the others?



Just kidding! Your work looks awesome! Almost there. Keep it going!!

With your new Rubbolite LED lights, didn't your parents have to pay 20% VAT? I guess maybe the 20% VAT may still be cheaper than having them shipped here. I was looking at having a friend pick some of those up while over there, but couldn't get it all together fast enough, and just bought from Safari Dust instead.

What's that internal roll bar you have? Looks like it goes up on each side of the driver/passenger seat. Where'd you get it?
