As you may be able to tell from my avatar I'm a fan of the Rover pastel green as well.

From the pics it looks like a galvy chassis, but how did you get it black? Powdercoat? Galvy dip in black?

I've got plans to do the same for my 88 someday...but that's a long way off.

.
Had a notion to change the color to the dark green when I had it all stripped down, but took a liking to the pastel green and chose to put it back to its factory color, which turned out much to my liking

Yes the chassis is galvanized,,,,, was fortunate enough that the chassis was solid, so stripped it, had it sandblasted , drilled a few holes in the crossmembers and such to allow the zinc to flow through out, then hauled it to a local galvanizer where it was hot dipped.
To keep the original look and cosmetic vanity brought it back to the house, set it up in a temporary shade tree kind-of paint booth, acid washed, etch primed, and shot with semi-gloss black.

Man that thing's in great shape...did you have the resto done or was it done when you got it? Makes me want to add another to the stable...though I think the wife would kill me.

Wow...I've never seen a 45-page post before...I'll have to carve out some time to check it out thoroughly.

In the meantime Jac I do have a question...I see you wired up the rear worklight - I was planning to do the same on my Series. My question is this: what did you do for the wiring? Is there a special kit you got to run it to the dash for the "on/off" rigging?

Jason- I bought two of Land Rover p/n 90575072 for the wiring from the light to the engine compartment. This is a wire with a sleeve protector. Punch the number into the Rovers North web site and you will see a picture of it. I used a rubber grommet to run the wire through the rear of the body to te area where the other lights are connected. Then the wire runs along the top of the rear x-member with the other wires to the RH side of the chassis (I did this to keep all the wiring away from the exhaust system). It then runs up the RH side of the vehicle to the engine compartment. I used a Hella relay and a lighted switch from Radio Shack.

Hi guys, hi Michele............

If you browse trough my album you can see how i made the disc brake or alternatively visit the build tread.

http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?showtopic=22910

Also loads of pics of the rebuild on the 109 and the toylander build.

Great stuff in here. I didn't realize that it had been so long since I looked at this thread.

The little red truck finally got out to play a bit last month.

Purchased a series III early part of this year and it has been in the shop the majority of the time but it has been worth it. I am glad i found a good forum. See below pics. I just ordered a center console and it should be in early next week. Has any one ordered the new door panels that come with speaker cut outs? they are on the site roversnorth.com.
