    Contact Lee at English Swedish in Alpharetta for the upper tail gate and plastic bits. Also, feel free to message me on anything you are having difficulty locating. I also have a 95' LWB (white) and know where several parts trucks are in the area. Best of luck!

    So, I started looking for additional rust based on everyone's input and here's what we found...

    Great job! So bulkhead and from footwells were solid ? Also, check the inside lip on the bonnet, surface rust grows there, but really isn't visible until you lift the bonnet.

    WAY better than mine, in amount of rust..... and quality of work

    you can tell where my welding improved as you look over my truck ha! (notice how I haven't posted pics....) They will hold, but only a parent could love them.

    Quick update, pl626 was spot on with where the rust would be... and how bad. We just ordered new cross member from YRM and replaced front passenger footwell area. Should be solid on the body soon and will post some pics.

    NICE! I am retrofitting my own crossmember. (just remember you got to stop the water from coming in) I am STILL fighting the front driverside to find where its getting in.

    man, y'all are making me feel good about the limited rust on my 90. I just have a small hole in each footwell and a quarter size hole in the bulkhead. Nothing anywhere else. I did remove the sound stuff under my carpets. Now if I could just get the motor running a little smoother 100% of the time, and maybe a sunroof gasket.

    Re: My first Range Rover Classic Project - '95 County LWB

    So, as I dig into the rust and body further (much of interior is out), I want to do Dynamat in all key places and panels (doors, fenders, floor boards, etc.) I'm also thinking this is a good time to do heater core/blowers, door actuator springs or new aftermarket units, maybe even keyless entry retro, etc.

    So... the question is, if I'm this far in how important is it to do a body off type restoration if I'm this far in? Bear in mind rebuilt trans from AB is here and rebuilt Turner UK 4.2 with sport cam and gasflowed heads are on order so engine bay will also be clear. I'm thinking it's not necessary and, while spending a lot, did not intend to set out on a concours level restoration, just solid and reliable.

    Awesome job! It does seem you may as well do frame off, but I'd bet your 95 s frame is still solid. I wouldn't bother if there are no frame issues, but you may want to blast the frame internals with waxoyl/dinitrol, then coat the sill internals, rear crossmember.

    I'm using both Dynamat w/ Dynapad. Much better than the stock sponges they call padding...

    Thanks! I'm sure my ignorance will be showing, but what do you mean by internals and how do you get to them? Do you mean inside the closed/tubular/rectangular parts of the frame? The new YRM cross member is awesome, but not rustproofed in any way.

    Yes, coat the inside of the frame, crossmember, any steel tubing or box should get a liberal coating. There should be plenty of ways to spray inside the box/tubing. The sills on each side should be easy, as you've already removed the tread plates. The white plastic screw mounts provide openings at the top(after removing) to squirt the insides. Remove the plastic sill finisher and you have more access on the sides.

    Re: My first Range Rover Classic Project - '95 County LWB

    Well... Figured I would show you what I did on my C-member. Your front panels look identical to how mine looked. Did you find how the water is getting in? Chances are it still will come in if not. BTW, looking really good Jeff!

    I did not want to spend the money for the YRM panels or the freight. So I got some 3/16th x 3" angle and burned it in as i was able of keeping 1/2 of my cross member. I then just patched up the holes I cut out.

    There is a tool by eastwood that would allow you to spray inside frame rails yourself to coat for rust-preventative. I wouldn't think a frame off is necessary, but that's up to you as to how far you want to take this. I am looking into this spray product for my new cmember and frame...

    Re: My first Range Rover Classic Project - '95 County LWB

    grnole - Could you post a "before" shot of your cross member? I'm curious what the bottom of the c-member looked like, especially near the hinges. TIA!

    OP - sorry for hijacking your thread. BTW, I'm meant to say, based on the pics of the front footwell repair, I'd say, check the sunroof drains. Also, pull your central locking ECU, then pull the cover off and inspect for any evidence of water penetration. My '95 RRC SWB actually had some rust on the PCB of the central locking.
