My 1988 LHD 110 Heritage Buildup

OK everyone. I had been looking for several months for a LHD Landy and finally settled on buying one from Johan. It has the 3.5 V8 and good bones. Just paint and interior. Easier said than done. Here is the plan. I would like to make a 2015 Heritage Clone. This is my favorite color combination for this vehicle. As the process slowly unfolds, other members told me that they thought it would be nice to chronicle the restoration. At this time, the only major upgrade I plan on doing is adding A/C, purely for the reason of having people on the forum make fun of me for adding it. I will definitely need it considering I live in Austin and this will be my daily driver once finished. I will update brakes and other various mechanicals as time goes on. The only thing that I am still working on is trying to find the grille setup that is used on the 2015 Heritage. I was told to wait a few months and see if anyone starts producing a knockoff, but we will see. Here are some pics. The last picture is hopefully what it will look like when finished. Thanks for everyone's input over the last few months.

my thought exactly ... nothing worse than a bulkhead a different color to the rest of the vehicle!

Sorry to burst everyone's bubble, but it won't be a complete teardown. I plan on keeping the V8 for the time being, so I figured I would leave the engine bay alone. I really don't want to toss another $15k at it right now. I figured that if I did the engine, I would do the bulkhead at the same time. I don't know what engine I want.... 300 tdi, TD5....I've even heard some some people putting EFI on the V8 and are happy with it. I don't have any off road plans for it, unless you count parking in the grass at the school during parent teacher conferences. Who knows? A running / driving car with some flaws is better than a perfect car sitting in the garage with grand aspirations as to what it could be. Looks like I will be keeping my hood down to hide the orange.

Great to find this. I am planning on doing the same with the Grasmere Green Heritage metallic/white combo. I was wondering if there will be any issue finding this paint in the states? Is it currently just being used on the Heritage in the UK?

For some reason they dont list the defender but i can't imagine Keswick green would be a different code for different models.

You should talk to Dave Short/fireman short. He put a holly carb in his 3.5v8 years ago. Every year he drives 13 hours up and back to Winter Romp and during the year he attends other events 4-5 hours away. Point is his seems happy with it and it's a fraction of the hassle and cost of an engine swap.
