Unfortunately, ECR doesn't do RRCs any more. D90/110 only. /:(

If I ever win the lottery, I do plan to restore a RRC to showroom!

Triumph - phone them up and ask them. You are a potential customer after all.

I wouldn't call that a restoration. More like upgrading. Pikes Peak Rovers in the Denver area did a frame off on a '95 LWB and said the owner had over $100,000 in it. The owner of the shop sent me pictures of the process. Needless to say, I was jealous as hell.

I remember gawking at the ECR page when I first got my Series and saying, "One day..." Getting them on the phone can be tough, even by their own admission. When I have spoken to someone in the shop, they have always been very courteous. A friend of mine contacted them about doing his late IIA a couple of years ago, and was told that it would be at least 2 years before they could get to his truck, and this was right before they stopped doing Series completely. I love the work they do, and especially love the retro RRC conversion. Whenever I get my Rangie, :pray: I want to get a little of that vibe.

I want one of those ECR rear bumpers for my '92 RRC. The design looks very functional and would nicely complement the early, 2-door style bumper I have on the front. I see that there's no price of it on the website and I cringe to think how expensive it must be. Out of my price range, I am confident.

On further inspection, they did have an instruction page for DIY installation of the RR bumper, so at one time you could order direct.

ECR is close to my home. The rear bumpers were designed by ECR and originally made at their facility, then made for them by a small steel fabricator in my area. At one time I contacted them to see if I could use their plans and have a bumper made for myself by that same steel fabricator. They were very friendly and had no problem with it, but the cost for a one-off from the steel fabricator, who now holds the plans and jigs was too rich for my blood. ($800 plus, as I remember)
The Classic project was done in ECR's early years. They've gradually morphed into a full time Defender shop with world class service and a backlog of work that's mind boggling. They serve a very unique clientel. I dare say most of us don't have the bank roll to play in their league (six figure mods and overhauls). Great guys, but serving a market that is sadly way out of my range. Range Rovers are just too much work to be bothered with for them at this time.
Maybe some day...

Rt,
Love that pic of your truck in the snow...I am partial to the cleaner look on Classics. Eastnor Green really accentuates the lines.

Thanks Ematt. She's been a wonderful vehicle. I love the Eastnor too. Solid colors seem to work better on these vehicles (in my opinion). I too wish I could find someone to do a frame over restoration. I can handle all the mechanicals, but the sheet metal work she needs is a little beyond my shop's set up. Perfect scenario would be to have a little larger shop, proper welder and sheet metal tooling, and a couple months off to get it done. The time off and extra tools kinda work against each other... /:(
