Sam's 110 resurrection

I made a new dash instrument dash cowl piece out of steel to replace the wimpy plastic one. I know someone makes one out of aluminum but I like fabricating my own stuff. I started into the dash wiring. I first peeled the lower dash pieces, had them sand blasted, primed them, then used a faux leather material, spray glue and a heat gun and recovered them. Came out better that I imagined it would. I bought the TD5 upper dash piece to replace the vent cover and dash tray. Took some very minor modification but it looks good in place. I'll take pics when I get it installed.

Got a little more of the dash and column put together then put the steering wheel on. Not done with the wiring yet but I put the TD5 upper dash panel in to get an idea of how it's gonna look. Still need to buy a radio and a grab handle.

Sam's 110 resurrection

So I drove 10 hours each way this weekend to the back woods of California to pick up 4 110 station wagon doors and a newer style 110 roof with no external ribs. Very happy with the doors. They are from a 96 Australian 110. Just about perfect. All I have to do is paint them.
Air springs on the Disco started giving out on this trip. Time for a coil conversion asap.

Excellent! Congrats! What did you think of the 88" rig in his garage? Pretty cool huh?

Sam's 110 resurrection

A few weeks after assembling the engine I noticed the power steering pump leaking so I decided to change it out. I don't like the pump set up that comes on the 14cux v-belt classic 3.9 and 4.2 so I made some upgrades. This is the third pump I've bought and installed from PSC Motorsports into one of my rovers. Makes it steer like butter! Its a high out put TC style pump. Puts out much better pressure than stock and in my opinion much more reliable and less likely to leak. I used this pump in a set up with a hydraulic steering ram once and it kept up with that. It required modifying the stock bracket it mounts to (you better have a welder if you're gonna do this), having a custom hose made, buying a 4.5" diameter pulley and 90 degree hose barb PSC sells, and buying some fasteners and a smaller belt. In the end it was definitely more work than just putting in the stock unit but I ended up with something superior and spent about $290 instead of $340 for a new pump from Atlantic British. The one pic shows a straight hose barb fitting for the return line. I ended up switching it to a 90 degree after a test fit. I hate just putting the same old poorly designed whatever back in when I fix something. I usually try to go one better if possible.

I also found a company that makes aftermarket a/c units for classic cars and trucks. I have all the under hood parts I needed but didn't know what to do about an under dash evaporator. I could buy a used one from some one for $500-$800 then hope it works and that the vents don't fall out. Instead I bought a brand new unit made for putting a/c in a 67-72 Chevy pick up. I took a little bit of a gamble but I'm happy with how I got it to fit. Of course I did have to have new custom high and low pressure a/c line made but i like brand new stuff. I'll keep you all posted on how it actually performs. I should have the truck up and running in about 2 months if all goes well. Then it'll be 110 degrees out by mid August. Should be a good test.

Good on ya for figuring out something different for an AC solution. This looks a little more in keeping with the character of the older trucks, since retrofit items looked more fabricated and assembled instead of looking perfectly integrated. I mean that as a compliment, really.

Can wait to hear how it performs.

The great part is that this under dash a/c unit was $300 including shipping. I'm willing to be the guinea pig on this.

It looks like a good match! Please share all the details once you verify it works well.

I know. Installing the stock one was an impossibly difficult task. Installation of this new pump is a lot easier.

Started the engine for the first time since it's been refurbished. It runs great! I'm so excited. I can see myself driving already. Much thanks to my brother Scott. I would've been lost without his expert help. It really spoils you when you have a Land Rover master tech on speed dial.

Since the truck runs now I drove it up and down my street a bit. I also installed a fold and tumble back seat from a Jeep TJ. I custom made seat brackets. It works great. You can even pop the whole thing out with ease. The seat belts are from a RR classic back seat and are mounted with 1/4" thick backing plates behind the bolts. I'm pretty confident in its strength. I mounted the seat back a bit for more leg room so had to do the same with the belts. This truck didn't come any rear seat belts when I got it. Front seats and belts are installed too.
My brother stopped over and helped me figure out why my turn signals and brake lights weren't working right. Had to do with a faulty converter designed to allow you to plug in a 4 pin trailer light connecter. Now I have to finish a bit of wiring, put in my windshield and wipers, and paint my doors.

I like the seat install. Does the seat fit between the tub sides? Could you install it in the cargo area as a third row?
