New guy in NC

Hey fellas,

I'm in Asheville NC. I work for corporate Land Rover as a member of the drive team, so anybody who's been to either overland, or a host of other events we do has possibly met me.
Currently working on a 66 series truck. Got the discovery frame cut apart, and all the series panels mounted up, looks like a truck again!
Should have the 300 tdi in about 5 weeks, until them I'll keep cruising the board looking for answers.
Happy to be a member of this board, looks like a great bunch!

Dave

Welcome aboard!
From what you can see from the picture your project looks pretty good, Dave.
Did you do all the custom metalwork?

Yep,

So far frame has been cut in half and shortened, cut off behind rear coils and rebuilt. New rear bumper/cross member, all the body mounts, rock rails etc.
I used to build complete tube rock crawlers, so I have some experience with this stuff

I have talked to several guys who took rust free Disco I frames and extended them to build a 110 or 130.
They said it was a lot of work, but was worth the trouble.
Jeff Payne, who use to live in Asheville had similar skills... did you know him?

No, I don't remember that name I don't think. It's work, but it's not terribly difficult so far. Figuring out a discreet cage is my current issue
