had a look about for some info on this conversion but it seems everyone whos done it is keeping it secret lol.
not shy when it comes to cars and spent hours in the garage sanding my fingers to the bone making one off stuff, i often just cut bumpers up for a laugh and make eminto summin funky, then made a custom mg zr turbo for the shows, everything i do is totaly d.i.y and sometimes get some real cuckoo ideas and just go with them lol, this vid from start to nearly finish of what i been up to...

Welcome to the farm!

Good luck with the project, take some photo's. Customising isn't too high up the list for most of us but there are one or two who are in the process of taking on a project as well.

Oh yea, don't take any jip from KMag when he enters the ring... :wink:

Are you wanting info on RRSports or P38s? THere are several threads on "upgrading" the fronts of P38s to a MarkIII or sport front end. On the Sport forum there are pages and pages of threads on body kits etc.

When it's fininshed will it be better offroad that an standard P38.
Hope you'll be using 16" rims and not 18" as there are lots more
offroad style (AT, MT) tyres available, but if you fit a larger diameter
tyre you'll have to figure out a way of carrying the spare as it won't
fit in the original wheelwell.

Good luck.

...or look like everyother street modded P38. OI! :crybaby2: Make sure to post before pics so we can build an alter and give our condolences. :mrgreen:

To each their own. Many folks have hopped on here with big ideas for street mods, but only a couple have followed through to an end product. I wish you luck. It's great to see the before and during, it;s even better to see the after.

If you want to be different then I don't think buying other people's product is the way forward.

Grafting the front end of an L322/L320 onto the front of a p38 (1994-2002, is that what you intend to buy?) is not as easy as it looks. The internal construction of the vehicles is very different and they all have different swage and detail lines which will cease to line up once the transplant surgery is done.

You will find bodykits for the newer models from Khan and Overfinch. Overfinch tend to be subtle and Khan tend to be... tacky(IMHO).

Although few people on here will agree with your tastes, if you do have the knowledge and skill to do this yourself that will be respected. We might even be able to help and advise regarding the finer details of the RR.

I can do you a good price on the Khan Design kits BTW, but they are for the later MY Land Rover products (Freelander2, RRS/L322).

I doubt you could do me a good price.
Unless you'll pay me to take them away AND cover disposal costs. :naughty:

Have a look on the sport foram. A lot of them seem to be into customising.I don't understand why most on this one seems to be against it. It seems to be the opinion of most that it's OK to do mechanical mods but when it comes to altering the bodywork it's a no no. I think that if a person has the ability to do something different do it. As I see it it's all about personal taste. I particularly like the sport light and grill conversion that Rogersons do, and very soon a similar version will be on the front of my RR together with some body mods. So "xsuggs99" if you want or can give any help sorting out the headlight wireing PM me.
