    I am a big fan of those TF ones, they resist bad, really bad roads nicely. That is what I have in my classic.
    Congrats on your buy, part of my body was a dark grey and I was glad to have it painted light green & white living in a hot climate. If you need a respray one day think of it, I have never regretted it and suffer the more in my darkish green Disco.

    I would keep the TF if I knew the age/condition of it. Figured if I were doing new bushings I would go ahead and try the Bilstein. Currently it is very floaty and all over the road, so hoping it will help quite a bit.

    Well I paid the Rover Tax this weekend.... After washing it, I turned it back on and it was making a horrible squealing noise. Had it towed to my mechanic and they diagnosed it as a broken idler pulley? Said it sounded worse than it really was. It is still there having the body bushings and suspension bushings done. I am very excited to get it back to see how much of a difference they make.

    Looking good, Beluga Black? Has to be by fave color for a RRC.

    Would love to see this with the front spoiler, chromed bumpers and factory profile tyres.

    Was the sound deadening worth the effort? Thinking of doing it to mine.

    Let us know how the suspension upgrade goes...

    The Front Spoiler is definitely being considered, and I agree that black is a very fitting color for the Range Rovers.

    I haven't had a real chance to test the sound deadening as I need to get the speakers and carpets done to get the full effect. What I have noticed though is that the car does seem to stay cooler. I guess the A/C doesn't have to work quite so hard. I also haven't done the roof yet, which I imagine will have a significant effect.

    I am not a huge fan of chrome. I didnt specifically mention it in the above posts, but in the photo below, you can actually see that I refinished the rear bumper in gloss black as well as the side caps. It helps the bumper look more like a fluid piece with the body rather than just tacked onto the back of the truck. The faded plastics and pitted chrome didnt do any favors for the appearance.

    Slowly progressing with the interior re-trim. This weekend I got started on covering the dynamat and dynaliner. Eventually I will have custom floor mats made to go over this material.

    You've got a nice looking truck. What size tires are you running? Does it currently sit on a lift? Thanks, Joe

    It is running a 265/75 R16. I also have a Terrafirma lift and wheel spacers. The tires would rub significantly when turning without the spacers installed. With the spacers, I can get full lock, but it still does rub under compression when the wheel is turned at any degree.

    The Rover made the move back to Dallas where it was actually sold new.



    And of course, it isnt rover ownership if it aint leaking something! Looks like its time for a new Steering Box

    I took it to a local Land Rover specialist to check out the whole vehicle after being transported across the country. They are going to diagnose the source of the leak. Hopefully it is just the lines!

    Re: 1990 Range Rover Classic Build

    After more than a month in the shop I finally have the Rover back.

    Work completed:
    Replaced Power Steering Pump, Pressure Line and return hose
    Replaced all 4 wheel bearings and seals
    Replaced left rear axle shaft
    Both front Swivel balls rebuilt and hubs

    The truck is driving so much better now. Now I finally know how it was supposed to drive!

    Re: 1990 Range Rover Classic Build

    Im looking to do the same and remove the wood veneer as mine is cracking badly, did the vents fit snuggly after you wrapped it? It seems like the veneer would be just a touch thicker and the vents clips might not seat firmly
    Thanks and great job

    They did in-fact snap right back in place, no problem at all.
