Sounds like the dormy roof just found a new home.

Especially because this one has the non-alpine windows roof. No matter what, the dormobile roof is going in this roof. (I have the roof off Abrooks then Lesbo's 110 with the holes for the lights which I can swap on in the interim).

DB is coming too. I told him since you reserved first, you get the guest bed and he is stuck on the couch.

Here is the interior with the newly recovered but not quite matching seat base (I am going to fit genuine seat covers from barry and ordered a whole new seat base for the otherside from RN today).

Note it only has ONE fuse. I ordered a bunch from RN. I worked on fixing the lights today and removing some of the "surplus" wires that are hanging from the dash in this pic.

The frame is in TOP NOTCH shape. The only rust I was able to find were two holes, one dime sized hole and one quarter sized hole (after I opened them up) in the rear crossmember. I am going to cut them into squares and then clean out the inside of the frame and then spray some waxoyl in them and then weld patches.

Here are a few pictures of the PTO winch driveshaft. Unfortunately, it appears as though fitting it to a NAS truck will require a custom exhaust. I "think" I can use a ROW V8 exhaust and weld in bungs for the O2 sensors as Kellymoe has one on his 127. Hopefully he will post up some pictures of the underside of his truck when he gets a chance.

This is awesome. What a pile of shit. The memories are flooding back.

I like playing the guess-my-original-color game. I'm going to go with green.

I think those ANR4636s are a good candidate for media blasting and powdercoating, especially if they're welded and riveted.

I have two "nipple" wheels (really, they have three nipples on them for no apparent reason) that are rusty. The other four wheels are white and newer and solid (they even look like they might be 6.5in wheels).

Ron

PS she was very clearly stratos blue from new and seems to have been touched up over the years. The seat box is dark green, but is newer and has galvanized batterybox and tool locker.

Removed the rest of the surplus wiring, or at least I think I did. Tried to bleed the clutch slave, but rounded off the bleed screw in spite of using a six point socket and soaking in PB blaster. Now I have to pull it but the winch driveshaft makes that a challenge. UGH.

.


Those "nipple" wheels were from some special edition series rovers that had clip on wheel trims.

I've seen them over here /fairly/ often too.

So Ed (sonoronos) came over today to check her out. He graciously offered to help work on the truck (I did not even ask) and we pulled the winch and put on a replacement PTO cover plate (somehow my spare plate was off of a BW transfercase and would not fit ???? so I pulled one off the spare T-case), pulled the slave cylinder (a test drive was out of the question because the bleed screw sheered off) and removed the bent up sills. I also installed the other new seat base, de-stickered the blue portions of the truck (save the RAC GB sticker on the back -- I relocated any stickers I could save to the roof) and installed the missing wing vent (new from RN).

Thanks Ed!

Ron

Ps pictures tomorrow if I remember.

Ok, well it was dark by the time I got around to getting pictures and then my camera died. I did get a pic of the new grill (it is marine blue, not stratos and it says Land Rover 90 not Land Rover 110). I also have a couple interior pics which show how exmoor does not match the factory dark vinyl and a shot of the UK footwell repair.

Forgot, I also replaced the headlights and slapped on an old series bumper. I need to work on the ground on the right side as that one is dim. Thanks to JimC for giving me a half-dead headlight as it had the missing cup and trim to install the left one. Right now, the rear blinkers work and the headlights. I plan to install SIII light cups rather than the plastic panels (the one side is too dented to make that side fit) and I have four new front lights I got from RN for $45.

I am ordering about $350 worth of parts from George at RDS tomorrow which should be all I need to get her finally running and drivable.

This is a really wonderful buy. It's going to make a great truck esp with the dormobile top.
Congrats on an exceptional gamble!
