Hi Pickles,
Thanks! Here are a few pictures of the chassis JLR Classic sent me as I bought the car unseen.

I'll take a few more once I eventually get the car.

Watch out for Chris Zagato's Corrosion Prevention Guide as he will be treating the car and he will surely post some pictures!

Would you mind taking some pictures of the P38 steering box adaption and how the lower steering column exits through the inner wheel well please?

Awaiting for the car to be registered which takes a while apparently because it is a modified vehicle.
Then she goes to Chris Zagato, then back to JLR Classic and hopefully I can make some time available to pick her up sometime next month.

If you watch the Goodwood video in the first couple of posts, go to 4m18s there a good view of it on the chassis.

Out of curiosity, what's the point of replacing the steering box with a P38 unit? “A Land Rover immobilized is a moral defeat for the driver and bad publicity for the vehicle, […] it's up to you to do justice to your Land Rover!” - Land Rover Driving Technique.

Too free up some room? Don't know. Or maybe the P38 one is more accurate?

AFAIK the P38 box is used to make space in the engine bay. Blackbird ind. make a conversion adapter for the P38 box which may or may not have been supplied to JLR classic works. 1989 90 4.3 V8

Yes not the most imformative really JLR seem to keep the steering adaption's on a need to know basis.

Yes the main purpose is to free up space for the engine conversion but the P38 box is much better built than the Defender Adwest unit

P38 and Defender boxes both appear to have near identical ratio

Best Works Defender ever!

Seen one up close, amazing conversion.

CSK, you are a lucky man.

I think the cost is irrelevant if you can afford it because you or your kids will still be enjoying it in 50 years time.

Looking forward to your photo's when you take delivery.

Thanks Bowbearer!
I have never ever seen one up close, not even mine!
Seen all the reviews, watched all the videos I could find.
I had the same line of thought when considering the purchase, part of me said don’t, it’s just a silly purchase, then started thinking how a Works Defender would be a keeper.
What’s more sustainable than a Series Land Rover or a Defender, you can keep them on the road forever. Providing we can still fill the fuel tank. Mr. Green

absolutely beautiful - I'm wishing I was in your shoes (at least on the day of collection).

2 thoughts - ethanol....so the future is bright in respect of filling the tank,
those shiny axles......I presume they aren't the ones that have the ends fall off (the non-friction welded ones)?

enjoy. Thumbs Up
