Orca has arrived- 1985 110 CSW

At last, after just selling my 90 in July, the new (to me) 110 arrived at the house this morning from port Newark. 86K miles and runs OK. Bad paint, no seats, 2.5 NA diesel smokes, but it is beauiful!! (exactly what I expected). I can't wait to get started on the resto. Frame and bulkhead are in excellent condition; mechanicals and cosmetics will obviously need help. Will update as I progress; just need to figure where to start first. Any thoughts?

Is it drivable? If so I'd run it for a few weeks to find out where the gremlins are.
Interior pics??

You were lucky if that's all CBP took.

I'd just get some nice seats for him/her and drive it. Find the weak spots while planning that tdi transplant.

From those pics I cannot see one thing wrong with the paint.

That interior looks familiar, as I just had everything out of mine. I'd consider Line-x-ing the interior before you put rear seats in. That may not be for you though. I did U-Pol Raptor in mine ( http://www.clarke.ca/post.cfm/land-rover-bed-liner ), but if you want to pay the $675 (what I was quoted) for colour-matched Line-X, you'll have a better product.

I have some form of bed liner in my 110. If I could remove it I would. I guess it depends on what you want out of it.

Hey Chris - congrats on the addition.

I think we met at J&R meet a while back. I am happy to help wrench as I am local to you somewhat - and know a good local body shop if you need any help there. They painted my D110 last year and did a great job.

Regards,

AndrewT

True. I want to be able to put firewood, tools, gear, bikes, skis, etc. in the back of mine. The nasty carpet just soaked up dirt and hid corrosion issues. I also removed many of the worn-out trim pieces and sprayed Al's HNR and U-Pol Raptor up and around the side windows, etc. It should be more insulated now and it also looks a lot better (IMHO). The particular brand of bedliner I used just has to now hold up to long-term use.

All i would do to that truck is add a 200tdi and put some more seats in it. What are your plans for it?

I'm ambitious, but realistic (kind of); and I haven't even driven it outside the neighborhood yet. I don't plan on doing much beyond bringing the truck closer to stock, with some current comforts/ upgrades- at least for now; I look at the truck as a new canvas. For me, I want to drive it, so the priority list looks like this:

1. Mechanical: full fluid change; diesel service (will have to have someone do this, as I have no diesel experience); full brake overhaul; suspension upgrade (shocks, springs, bushings; install auxilliary cabin heater; new tires; upgrade interior and exterior lighting.

2. Interior: strip, scrub & clean interior; install new seats (front/ middle rows); replace instruments & upgrade fusebox (replace wiring where possible); reapir dash; install new cubby/ stereo & speakers, install interior sound deadener, new carpet & headliner (no rhino -lining), install new door cards and interior trim.

3. Exterior: bodywork repair and re-spray; replace windscreen; replace grill, headlight surrounds, wheel arches.

4. Wish list: 200TDI; Flat-style roof; full exterior SD cage.

Now I just need to put dollars and hours to the list.

Man, do I have a new appreciation for the forum!

put those plans in the bin - you must do as follows:

Build yourself a rat rod - leave body and paint well alone

Source some Range Rover classic axles which have vented 4-pots on front and discs on rear - fit with 4-pin diffs.

Purchase Terrafirma 1-inch lowering springs and supersport shocks

Purchase 18-inch overfinch apollo wheels

Contact Marks 4WD Adaptors in australia - purchase adaptor kit to fit LT230 transfer casing to 4L80E GM gearbox - purchase said gearbox attached to edelbrock 383 stroker

purchase some box section to make engine mounts.

Purchase very large radiator,oil coolers etc.

Purchase flowtech chevy K5 blazer 4WD headers and some 2.5-inch pipe for exhaust

get busy with spanners and welding gear.

You will end up with something like I have

Then, attach bag of lemons to suck to occasionally alter stupid grin on face.

What's this on the back of the transfer box? Overdrive?

Any clue as to the manufacturer?

Not sure. I think its a PTO, but there are no holes in the chassis/ body for it. How would I check the manufacturer?
