Rear bumpers and tire carriers are for sale on this board all the time. $250 should get you a nice bumper and about the same for a decent tire carrier.

Good luck, and yes, that is the factory POE seal. Mine was that way when I got it.

Okay, I guess I'll rephrase the question to more generalities, how is an NAS different than a Euro spec?

Pete,
I'll answer that... a POE NAS Rover was made for a short period in 1994 in the US...from what I understand it was because the Rover factory heard that the Americans wanted a hardtop defender and not just soft tops...so, they took stock Euro hard tops, added a few custom created parts and created a hard top version of the North American Spec soft top without a lot of re-thinking things. Like the rear door and tire carrier and so forth. Also, inside there is no roll bar. the front roll cage ends at the roof mount with nothing inside to back it up. My guess is that they thought that was OK because the rest of the world (ROW) Rovers never came with roll bars in the hard tops and station wagons...my understnading is that in 1995 they added the internal roll bar and the full rear door and thus was born the NAS station wagen...if I am wrong, I am sure others will correct...

Very interesting. Do you know if the POE tire carrier is different than the non-POE? Just curious.

My POE is very original except for the missing bits like the carrier, steps, and rear bumper; so it doesn't have the internal roll bar, but we're looking at getting one fabbed up.

Thanks,
Pete

"missing bits like the carrier, steps, and rear bumper"

Same as on an ST. Steps were not found on all POEs. POEs were made in late 2004 (the one I had and now JimC had is supposed to be the last one made). All are green although there is a rumor of a white one.

Do you remember the number on that one? Again, just curious.

We should be taking it to the fab guy in the next few weeks. I'll post some pics when it's done. I'm thinking it will use the existing bars that go underneath and then extend them up around the inside of the cab behind the front passengers, and then another the same except in the way back with another bar connecting the two hoops but staying above the alpine windows. It won't be anything crazy, just something to protect the rear passengers.

final pix of soft top to hard top conversion

thought I'd post these since it is finally finished. I still don't like the rear lift hatch lower seal...but, we'll work on that...
the hinges and hinge brackets are stock series rover stuff and I set up my hatch to work with a single gas strut support sourced the hardware and strut from Grainger (I think)...this demonstrates that a stock Euro hard top will easily bolt on to a stock NAS soft top with the addition of the two front cage pieces that I had to make...,also, you will have to figure out a way to mount your seat belt bottom mechanism...there is a stock item made for the ROW for soft top that could probably be used...I used a trashed internal roll bar from a SW...
