Indeed I do! The green one isn't standard anyway. It has a 5L stage 4 je tuned and blueprinted TVR Griffiths V8 Cool

It is also lowered with bilstiens. All of this will be refreshed and improved. The most mods will be to the interior. I'd have thought Thumbs Up 2002 90 Td5 Station Wagon

Moving along slowly on the Range Rover. I removed the front axle this evevening.

Hopefully over the weekend I will have all of the sundries off the chassis and can start checking for any repairs that need to happen before it's refinished. Also I have discovered that the O/S trailing arm is bent so will need to be replaced.

Yeah getting there! I'm thinking I may now take a wire wheel to the areas that may need attention and then do any repairs needed. Then have it blasted and coated in one go. Still unsure about galv or epoxy paint Confused 2002 90 Td5 Station Wagon

Well I've had a day on the Range Rover today Mr. Green Managed to get the chassis stripped to basically bare (minus turrets and bump stops). I've found one bit of welding so far which isn't bad at all!

Hopefully over the week I'll get it steam cleaned off, ready for prep and repair.
