My RRC project

Well I have started on my Range Rover Classic project Mr. Green

I have started by removing the body from the chassis.

My plan is to send the chassis away to be galvanised and then do a nut and bolt rebuild Thumbs Up

So here are a few pictures of today's progress....

Hopefully tomorrow I can get the axles off and strip the chassis down so I can send it away for blasting Thumbs Up 2002 90 Td5 Station Wagon

Bow down It is lovely to have the room to work in. However it is the workshop for our campsite so it is a shared space. Which has its frustrations Laughing 2002 90 Td5 Station Wagon

great start there George! I do love a good rebuild! What is the shell and interior like? Hard to believe that these are worth a few quid, but they are peanuts when needing work. My dad said they are a fortune to fix too, I thought these are practically defender underneath the shell. Defender 300 TDi 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

Shell not great, interior near mint. Needs headlining retrim. I have two vehicles to choose parts from. Both vehicles are vogue se.

Underneath they are very very similar to a defender. The axles are the same. I bought the donor one for �1100 a couple of years ago and the green one (pics below) has been handed down from my mum and dad.

Here is how the green one was last year cleaned up. Rear shell good front shell poor. As for cost of fixing I'm not sure as I haven't started yet!

Great work, I admire someone willing to take on such a restoration, very talented! LSK reg looks familiar, but can't think why? Confused James

I have 2 LSK reg plates and my parents have one.

My 90 is LSK 619
My RRC is LSK 620
And my parents 110 is LSK 621

Also you'll see them on some national express coaches Thumbs Up 2002 90 Td5 Station Wagon

As the Range Rover pre-dated the 90/110 by around fifteen years, it's fair to say that Defenders are mainly Range Rover underneath Whistle
