  1. Range Rover Classic
    I bought this 1992 Classic from a member of our local LR club who was moving. I really wasn’t looking to get a Classic again ever but here we are. My P38 project is my priority for now as it is getting close to being finished. The end goal on this Classic is lightly restored in presentable...
  2. Range Rover Classic
    Hi, just joined the forum today. Have recently bought a 1983 2 door Classic as a restoration project. Runs well but needs a bit of tlc in the electrics, bodywork and interior. Hope I can find useful help and advice here.
  3. Range Rover Classic
    As a long time lurker in the world of Range Rover Classics, this one YouTuber has allowed me to live vicariously through his restoration until I find the one I want to work on. He's an Irish guy named George and his channel is called "Soup Classic Motoring". He also works on other classics...
  4. Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hello, I have just acquired a CVC pre production P38 which is in need of some TLC and will no doubt be pestering the forums for guidance on the various dramas as they unfold. I have undertaken an "A" suffix restoration but think the P38 might be slightly more complicated! Best wishes, David

    Hi All, A quick introduction as I just now joined your site. I am a Dutchman who lived in the UK for many years (and caught the Land Rover - older style - bug there). Restored some LR Series while in the UK and still have a '72 stored in France. Now in Texas for a few years, currently driving...
  6. Range Rover Classic
    Hello, Any recommendations for a specialist in the Midlands that can do a restoration on a 1990 Classic? We have the new chassis and a reconditioned bodyshell, but need to get a company to do to the work. Closer to Lichfield/Burton on Trent the better really. Thank you. Keith
  7. Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi, As some of you may have previously read, I bought a pretty banged up L322 in January which I subsequently broke the day after. The 'dealer' I purchased it from, I now no longer trust. Mainly because they haven't coughed up for the repairs yet, and somehow it passed its MOT with only 1...
  8. Range Rover Classic
    Hi, Can anyone tell me if 2 door RRC doors are available to buy new. Also in the process of upgrading headlamps. I'm assuming the sealed beams are just one bulb, I.e no side light as the guy selling the new lamps asking asking if I require H4 kits with Sidelight, I don't think so but if someone...
  9. Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Last year I did the 3m restoration process to my headlights. I was satisfied. Really came out nice. However with the extreme weather we have been experiencing over the past year, tons of rain, extreme heat, they are starting to fog again. I am going to hit them again and was wondering if there...

    Hey all. I'm a Range Rover enthousiast from NL and I registered because I have a few technical questions. I haven't checked the forum out yet but I'm sure I will become a regular here. I have worked at a Land Rover workshop for a few years when I was younger, and have done quite a few...
  11. Range Rover Sport / L320
    Greetings all! My SC RRS was in a minor accident a while back and required a new driver's-side headlight. This means the passenger-side one is original to the car. I noticed at night that the new headlight is naturally brighter than the original one, but it looks as though the projector on...
  12. Range Rover Classic
    I've been working for 3 years on a nut and bolt restoration on a 1992 SWB classic and it is almost complete. This vehicle will be used as an overland vehicle including serious trail and mountain passes in Colorado. I'll be installing portal axles from killeraxles.com. with ARB lockers; etc...

  14. Range Rover Classic
    Hey guys new to the forum and want to share a project my father and I are about to finish. About 5 months ago we were looking for a new hobby and decided it would be cool to restore a classic 2 door like my father had in his 30s. So we found this 1980 Classic finished in white-ish tones...

    The man had good taste in cars. from the article: The goal was to have the car ready by Bob Marley’s 70th birthday. The 1977 Series III was sitting under a shed in Jamaica for many years, without an engine, and according to the engineers responsible for the restoration it was found in a...

    Hi, Jus got a unmolested 79 German 2 door in white. Motors bad and just got a good running used 4.2 L. I've decided to keep the original carbs from the old motor to keep the truck looking stock. Got a new gas tank, rebuilt radiator and found some refurbished rostyle wheels on there way from the...

  19. Range Rover Classic
    Hello to everyone. I introduced myself shortly in new members section so I will make it short. Last year I purchased a 1992 LHD RRC 3.9 V8 for restoration purpose only. The reason for a RRC is that it feels to me , it was build to leave behind years of traffic,roads,hills,snow,dirt...Ok...

    Does anyone know of anyone specializing in restorations on Range Rover Classics? I have ran across several in the UK, but would prefer someone in the US. I have also found plenty of people who do only Series and Defender stuff.
