Replacement of Land Rover D90 rear left panel.

Need a better idea on the replacement of a rear left panel for a D90. I've noticed two styles available on the market and was wondering the difference between the two . Any help would be greatly appreciated.

One has the cut out for the light. The other one is the ROW style from the really early trucks without side lights. I would go for the cheaper one and cut my own holes unless you know the black one has the right holes for a 1995/97 (94 had different lights as did the euro ROW trucks with side lights).

John:

Ron is correct- I looked into this when I had to replace the same panel on my truck.

Once challenge you will have (if you are a perfectionist) is that there in no real way to spot weld the replacement panel in the same locations as the factory so it will be apparent the panel was replaced. You could, as I did, replace the entire left rear body section (including wheel well) so this is not a problem. Or you can have a talented body guy 'fake' the spot welds which can be done but will take some time.

All the best with your project,

CARL

That's what I did and would do for sure. I don't recall any welding needed to do it this way unless maybe on the steel section at the lower along the crossmember.

You have to aluminium weld the support beam that goes around the back I think, but that is no biggy relative to all the spot welds. Keep in mind that a whole tub side is expensive. I would be temped to go begging for a whole used tub from the usual suspects.
