Early 110 Rebuild By Safari HP

We finished this truck earlier in the year and a few people here have asked to see some Rover porn so here she is.

This was a fairly rapid project from start to finish. With a few parts delays the project rolled into the new year. In total the complete build took nearly 300 labor hours from start to finish and was completed using old, new and NTO parts.

Rebuilt with the following:
Marsland Galvanized Chassis
Middle Doors
Front Doors
Modern Fenders
Extended Front Grill
Puma Rear Tub
Puma Front, Middle and Load Area Seats
Restored Front and Rear Axles
SS Brake Lines
Puma Bonnet and Grill
Elite AC System
Terrafirma 2 inch lift
Polly Bushings Throughout
Gearbox
Transfer box
Engine
Cooling System
Heater
Late Wiring Looms Throughout
48 Spline Steering Wheel
Rubber Matting
Fully Color Matched Bed Lined Inside
Upgraded Headlights
Black Interior Panels
SD Roll Cage
NAS Like Rear Bumper
Upgraded Wheels and Tires
ARB Bumper with Winch
Terrafirma Sliders
Seat Box Storage Panels


There you go. This was a straight forward project that produced a truck that gets quite a bit of attention around town.

Great looking truck... So, what would it cost to build another one, just like it?

Nice, but I'm more of a "original-ish" type. Would like it more if it were done up to this level but kept the 1984-ness with split middle doors and County stripes little tail lights galv cappings and the like. But hey, it's still awful sweet nonetheless. I know how much work this represents.

Yes please! When are y'all taking orders? I would prefer one a little more hunting truck focused. Amazing restoration!

That is one bad ass ride! Pretty much the reason I got sucked into this hobby, er addiction. I saw that thing when Ash and Bryan were building it while they were at SHP.

Those pics don't even do it justice. Top notch Exmoor all around and pretty much looks like a showroom truck.
