Front Fenders

If you thought the rear quarters were bad, wait until you see how the front wings looked like!! BTW, why are they called wings?
Anyway, they were bad. So bad that we replaced one of the completely and most of the other one. In fact we would have replaced both, but the backlog on them was too long. So we bought what we could, and repaired the rest. In the end they came out great, but man, did the guys spend overtime fixing those bad boys!!

Here are the before pictures:

Job two was to sand everything, work the metal and figure out what can be used:

At this point we decided to give up, and just buy new fenders. Unfortunately, only the left top and front were available. We had to repair the left side and the entire right fender extensively:

After the extensive metal work, we followed our mantra: Prime, Lizard Skin, Paint.

Window Frames, grill frame and windshield

The rear windows and grill frame were not bad. The windshield frame was horrible and required extensive repair. Here are the before pictures:

Here's the repair, fill and sand work; followed by priming and seam painting:

Assembly and Paint

As we were repairing the individual sections, we would only paint the overlapping seams, expecting that the rest of the panels would get scratched and bumped as we worked on the engine, suspension, transmission and electrical. So for six months or so, the truck looked kind of weird, with the blue seams and gray primer. Once the electrical and all the mechanical were completed, we sent the truck to paint.

Honestly I was unsure about the blue when we did the small test strips, but seeing the full truck in blue was amazing!! In full disclosure, we painted the chassis, rain gutter, window sill and tire flares black. We really love the look!!

Bass boat blue?

Hey Jeff,

Yup. I've always called them fenders. Wings makes no sense.

It's actually "Loire Blue Metallic." Original from LR.

Or were Land Rover parts managers and had to order things so it was better to know what they are actually called.

I had an American to British translation sheet that I had posted when the dealer I worked at absorbed some techs from a ford dealer. If I could teach 50 year old ford techs the proper names, Land Rover enthusiasts should be able to use them as well. Lamda sensor, ball joint, prop shaft, stub axle, cross tube, etc. etc. etc.

Wing makes more sense anyway. Like a plane.

Amazing work. Puts the cost of NTO bodies in perspective with all the work you had to do.

Thanks!!
It's not a kit. We bought the head lamps, led parking lights and led turn signal lights separately. Then we McGivered the day light running halo around the turn signal lamps and installed a relay to make them alternate.

We debated long how to fix this mess. Most wires were cracked. There were countless switches that didn't work. There was this red Radio Shack toggle switch smack in the middle of the dash. It would light up when the truck was on, but didn't appear to actuate anything. We tried tracing the wires - just for "fun" - and found out they were not connected to anything, other than the 12V to power the small light bulb. We looked into buying new harness and fuse box. But then we gave up. It made no sense at all to reconstruct an antiquated, fault-prone electrical system. SO, we yanked it all out!!
Here's what the electrical system of a LR 110 looks like just before it gets sent out for recycling!

Ok. Great. We now have no electrical system. So what do we do?
Well, we use Mr. Google, forums and boards, ask friends, do research. We came up with this company - originally and unfortunately called ISIS electrical, now much more appropriately re-named - Infinity Box. Infinity sells these amazing digital, plug and play systems. They do a lot of custom systems for police and for racing, as well as their fair share of restorations, muscle cars and antiques. We called them up, and Jay Harris, tehir president returned my call personally. I was sold. These guys were just the nicest, most professional people you can imagine. They have been invaluable throughout the restoration. I highly recommend them. Here's the link to their website:

http://infinitybox.com/

We bought the infinity wire system, which includes one smart controller called MASTERCELL and two power boxes called POWERCELL. We then bought an extra PowerCell to have enough outputs for all our goodies:

INFINITYWIRE 20-Circuit Wiring Harness

In addition we bought their controller for our vintage air system (inVIRONMENT™ Vintage Air Controller), their InTouch Net controller (inTOUCH NET) which allows you to control the whole system through your mobile phone, as well as their lighting, dashboard and RF systems.

Here are all the components during our un-packing session:
