Sam's 110 resurrection

So I am finally getting around to starting a build thread even though I started this project in Feb. this year. Like so many before I foolishly trusted some crook used car dealer in the UK and purchased my 110. Cost $3k to ship it to the west coast. I was depressed for 2 months after I got it and saw what condition it was in. Live and learn I guess. I knew once I had it home that the only thing to do was rebuild it from the ground up. I'm on a budget though so I had to reuse and rebuild as much as I can. So far It's coming out pretty nice. Here's some pics of me getting it from port Hueneme in CA. Some one else imported a nice 90 pick up on the same boat, not me.

Here you see the tear down starting. Of course everything was rustier than I imagined it would be. Good thing I found this place called Plastic Media Stripping. I've spent over $1200 there already. I've become obsessed with having no rust on anything.

Had the frame, rear axle and some other parts blasted. I had to weld in a few patches here and there on the frame and a new out rigger. I custom made my own rear cross member out of 3x6 steel tubing, 3/16 wall. It's pretty stout. I know other here have don something similar. I'm test fitting the rear tub in one pic to make sure it all lined up correctly.

I then used a 2 part automotive epoxy primer made by PPG for bare metals and sprayed everything twice. I went over that with a couple of coats of a single stage black automotive paint. I also had the springs powder coated red. I used the stock springs in the back but the front looked a little saggy so I used rear Disco springs to bring the front up one inch or so. The back still sits a little higher though.

Next step was to pull the 4.2 and automatic tranny from my donor vehicle (93 rr lwb) and do the rear main seal and front timing cover and water pump seals. Fortunately my brother has been a Land Rover master tech for many years and so I had a little help. The engine has 100k on it and my brother looked over the crank and bearings and said everything look in excellent condition. I'll be doing the heads once the engine is on the frame. I also pulled the front axle so i could have 24 axles and vented front rotors.

Took the heads to the machine shop and had them decked and hot tanked. Had them put in new valve stem seals too. Got all new gaskets and head bolts and a little help from my brother and the engine was back together. I also bought all new fuel injectors and new O2 sensors for the cats because I want the engine to run tip top.

My bulkhead was too rusty so I got a good used late model TD5 bulkhead from Tom in NY which needed a little collision repair. I was able to use a good piece form my original one and patch it in, then had it blasted of course. I also had to custom make a transmission tunnel and do a little repair to the seat box too.

The color I decided on is called Keswick green. I completely replace the front left wing with a brand new one, top, front and side, the whole thing. I installed an aluminum radiator and got some more of the engine back together. It's going to have a/c so I used the condenser from the RR because it has 2 fans instead of one. I reused/reworked the exhaust from the donor RR for now because I want it as quiet as possible.

This looks great! Did you have to change any of the mounting points on the frame in order to fit the 4.2L and tranny?

Looks good. Engine install looks really clean.

May be a dumb question but you can sand blast an axle without taking it fully apart?

Nice work. I like the Keswick green. Will look good with a white roof and wheels.

Though you were frustrated at the beginning at what you purchased and what you would have to take on to get what you wanted. There is no better way to "know" your truck than to become that involved with it. Looks like you are doing a great job and it will all be worth it. Keep up the good work!

I'm really enjoying the project now. I did have to move the motor mounts for the 4.2. Yes you can have the axle blasted complete. I took the ends apart and did disc brakes. Pics for that later.

Nice work. Keswick green is one of my favourites... very nice.


Your truck is going to look and be good once it's finished (which it is, if i'm reading right? lol!) As was said, no better way to get the vehicle of your dreams than to build it yourself.

nice work. love the color. The original truck did not really look too bad from the pics and being from England. Although I am sure it was much worse in person. also depends on how Uk dealer described it to you, which was probably rust free. I can understand the frustration. but what you have done is great.

For the rear axle I used 3/8 inch steel plate and made a bracket which i welded to part of a ring that came off of the housing end to make a disc brake bracket. This worked out good, made it easy to line up the holes and the spacing was just right. I used some rear calipers I had from a Disco and happened to have some new rotors lying around that I forgot I even had. Put 1-1/2 inch spacers on as I plan on putting boost wheels on later.

I repaired the seat box and primed it. I installed the gear selector between the seats. I had to custom make a steel box to hold it. Then started the numerous coats of Quietcar sound deadener.
