New Land Rover 90 restoration

I have just started a new restoration project.
It's a 1985 Land Rover 90 2,25 Petrol from Switserland.
I'll take auto the petrol engine and fit a 300TDI with auto gearbox. Chassis will be galvanised and the car will get a respray. We will fit a new interior, new wheels, tyres, brakes, suspension, rocksliders.....


This is the original vehicle, in need of restoration:

Hi, thanks for your reply. We are building this 90 for a customer. We sometimes have a few cars for sale, but most of our cars are build to order, to the specs the customer wants.
This one will be build like an 'Experience' version, we have built a few of these before but all in Lybian Sand Matt and as a 110, but this one will be Keshwick Green.
Most of our projects are build on the original sandblasted and galvanised chassis with a 300TDI engine.

You can have a look at our our website www.classicdefenders.com to see some of the projects we have already done.

This is one of our 'Experiences':

Breaking a low mileage RHD Discovery ES 300 TDI for engine, autogearbox, transferbox and 24 splines axles. We will have to convert the RHD axles back to LHD. We will use parts of the old LHD 10 splines front axle for this.

We will try to remove all dents as best as possible (and there are a lot), because we want to use as little filler as possible.
If you use a lot of filler it will eventually crack or fall off, and we want the paintwork to last as long as the galvanized frame, at least another 25 years again.

Thanks for sharing. Why not just take a new galvanized chassis and get the chassis number re-stamped.

We like to use as much of the original parts as possible to retain as much as the cars original identity as we can. For export to some countries they have points to measure originality. With this car we have the original chassis and body, only the engine, gearbox and axles will be replaced. It should be legible for export to most countries. This one will stay in Holland, but maybe the new owner wants to export it after a few years..

The footwells had some rust, so we have made up some new ones from 3mm galvanised steel. These will last for ever!
Ofcourse seam welded, we don't want any moisture in the welds.
