PostSubject: Land Rover re-build Version 1 -- UPDATED Pictures   Wed Jul 09, 2014 8:45 pm

I recently got my hands on a old land rover and as you will see from the pictures below it was in a right mess. It had no bonnet, front bumper broken off, back bumpers broken off, no gear stick, no plastic in window screen and the body was practically split in half. however, with glue, a riveter and some plastic sheets i began the re-build.

First i started by adding plastic plates/strips to the bottom of the Land Rover and with glue and rivets fitted them onto the base of the LR just to keep it together. I then added rivets to the edge of the LR for extra strength.



I then built from plastic sheet a new bonnet trying to keep the rivet theme.



Followed by a new plastic rear hatch


I then made supports for the front bumper and used glue and a rivet to fix it on, i also got my hands on a part rear end of a LR and carefully cut the bumpers of and glued them back to mine.


My final picture is of my VAM checking out the newly sprayed wheel for size



The LR is finished now and i just need to take the pictures, i hope to post them the weekend for you to see the final rebuild.

Beautiful restoration job!!!

Love how it turned out with the desert paint scheme and I really like the new bonnet!

You have to love saving one of these old timers from the scrap heap.

Well done!!!

Brian

Nice job! My son's been after a Land Rover and your post has given him some ideas on restoring one if we find a broken one. We've got a box of Mecano in the loft that we could use to fix it up.
