Oh, sorry, I meant the paint. I'm considering either zambezi silver or bonatti gray for my Series IIA.

Thanks!

My friend owns a paint supply shop and mixed it up for me. Its a PPG paint that I used. Base coat Clear coat. I would go with the bonatti grey on a series. Any autobody paint supply can mix it for you though.

Thanks...

The Bonnati Gray is one of my favorite colors for for a Defender, Lara or no Lara. One of the LR mags has a Series III painted in this color, with a Defender front end. Nice...

Having said that, the galvanized chassis underneath & rear crossmember look more 'natural' underneath a Zambezi Silver, as it does on Randy's.

I figure since I'm about to start on a frame swap and have to take it apart, I may as well paint it. I'll post pics of my progress. My guess is that it's going to take several years. We'll see what else inspires me.

Randy, looks great! Do you think that you will need to trim the fender flares to clear the 35's? I trimmed a pair of rears that I have, took 2" off. Looks like they won't rub now. I haven't installed the fronts, and was wondering about trimming them. They are more expensive than the rears, so i don't want to trim them and regret it (I already have another uncut of rears in case I decide not to trim). Where'd you get the idea to paint your door tops? :>)

Chris

I might trim them. I don't care if they rub a bit though. Mike are yours trimmed? You have the same tires. As for the door tops, they are not painted right now. They are bare aluminum. I will paint them silver though. I like the way they look better.

No trimming, they rub only a little in the rear (they have never done any damage to the flare), but when I run chains (big chains not the little Rud wanabes) they rub all around.

Randy, seriously. Who are you fooling? That thing is a piece of junk.


You should just give it to me and stop the madness...






Just kidding, nice work

Makes me want an ST!

Tested its legs today. If I had cones I would have gone a lot further with the rear wheels on the ground though. Or the SG droop kit. That was with the front tire 3'3" off the ground I want more... The 35's stuffed in with no problem and no trimming of the flares even. It rubbed on the back rear tail of the flare just a tad though.
