No rust...was stripped, media blasted, some small sections (non structural) repaired and then engine swap mounts and 1-ton spring perches welded. Two coats of POR-15 painted...interior cavities sprayed with CRC rust prevention spray.

Cool. Do you have a link to the build of the truck? Saw you posted that you did it on a bunch of forums (4btswaps, roversnorth, landrovernet, etc.), but no actual build thread / photos.

Holy crap I'm in love. And pastel green...the best Rover color (I should know, same as my 88!).

Nice rig though man, one of the cleanest (and most prepared) Series I've seen in awhile. Really jealous - it's my ultimate plan for my '71 IIA 88 to rehab it one of these days...

Those are actually earlier Series wings with holes drilled in them and lights installed. Bugeye wings have the directional and side lights on the side of the lights like they are on your late IIa- the lights just aren't inset like yours.

Did you plan the bonnet venting/louvers or did you add that due to some heat issue?

Gentlemen:
You are correct in that it is not a true "bugeye" wing as I needed to move the lights outboard onto the wings due to the large 3-core aluminum radiator and intercooler and the space I needed to fit the Cummins 4bt in the engine bay and NOT affect its placement within the frame etc....so its a "hybrid".

I had the louvers put in on purpose to prevent any heating issues (which never materialized) as the Cummins only hits 190F when pullig the long grade from Georgetown to the top of Eisenhower Tunnel or when towing my ATV trailer trailer up Boulder Canyon (which has a short, intense 10% grade section).

The electric 3300cfm variable speed radiator fan rarely comes on and since I can control it from the cab (switched to turn it off for deep water crossings) I usually just leave it off.

I do use a RN radiator muff in the winter to help warm it up so that I get some heat for the heater!
Thx

Of course the answer to an engineering problem is...MORE ENGINEERING! I guess the question all potential buyers have to ask themselves is whether all the rightness outweighs all the wrongness.

I am not jealous of your truck, I am jealous of the fact you live in Boulder! Born and raised there myself, went to CU too. I sure miss the wheeling up Boulder canyon and above Nederland.
