    Range Rover Mark II / P38

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Has anyone ever cut the top off of a Mark II? I was thinking about buying one and making it topless for giggles. Would removing the top affect the structural integrity of the frame? Anything else I should be worried about? I can't find any pictures of this having been done before on the...

  13. P38 Steering Wheel Replacement

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    As mentioned before- and proven by myself, replacement is more of a breeze than many have reported. Gleefully, I discovered this to be true... Less than 30 minutes with a couple of tools- a 30Torq drive and a crescent wrench will get the job done. No need to disconnect the battery, turn the...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I sold my P38 a few weeks ago - after owning both the 2003 Mark III and the 1998 P38 I decided it was time to sell with the high miles I had on her before I get myself into any real trouble.
