Thanks for the encouragement, it was getting a little lonely on here. I was able to find out limited info on repaint issues on this site that was a little help, but i was hoping for a personal touch and some reccomendations. I will post some photos of the rover on here(if I can) so that people might be able to give ideas on what would need to be done, and other adjustments or modifactions I should consider. I do have a friend that works at a well known rover shop, which posts a lot of info on this site, so I am sure he will be helpful. I have yet to lay hand on the rig, and have only seen photos. But I am lucky enough to have some friends in Halifax who were able to check it out for me. They couldn't believe I was buying an old truck, but they understood once I told them about the following that they have here in the states.
here she is as it was advertised on ebay I dont know if the pictures will come up though, I am new to this stuff.

This vehicle was imported from England December 2000, with the stock 2.5 liter N/A diesel. The Steering conversion was completed in England prior to shipping. This Land Rover is in great shape which is rare to find. There are a couple of minor issues; The u-joints with have to be replaced, the fan motor for the heater needs to be replaced and the emergency brake is sticking. Also some spots on the paint are ruff/peeling where there is a bit if oxidization forming on the aluminum body. This is a great truck and Im sad to see it go. The only reason Im selling it is because of a lifestyle change.
