      Once the big one hits, I'll be ready.

      I've missed out on so many 911 deals because I didn't act fast. While the dream of a cheap 964 or 993 is all but dead, the LWB was renewed my faith that someday I'll find one.

      Holy panel gap, Batman!

      Is that to accommodate off-road body flex?

      It is supposed to allow water to flow into body cavities during deep fording. It keeps them from floating and losing traction. The shape of the hood is also designed so that it will keep a pocket of air under it when underwater to allow the engine to keep running.

      I had a '95 LWB as a daily driver for a few years. It kept me very busy.

      the only problem with the Disco I swap is loss of it being heated and if you need to replace the molding the disco one is slightly different where it meets the gutter channel at the top.

      Nice truck, I too have fond memories of the RR ads; that explains why I still love Rovers, new and old, to this day.

      Go for it! When I get more scanned, I'll post 'em here.

      D'oh! Yeah, I meant the discovery. I managed to get the heat function working, but the switch refuses to latch. Not much of an issue here in SoCal.

      New mudflaps came in yesterday so I set about installing them. Looks like I'll need to pick up an angle grinder to cut off the permanent nuts Land Rover used.

      Since I have no garage, my living room and back seat have become my parts storage.





      Going to install the brush bar tomorrow. Here's what it looked like on a Cornish Cream '94 LWB:

      Got mine from Atlantic British. They claim they're original and the price was lower than anywhere.

      Used a small LED flashlight to light each panel, then merged each separate image together in photoshop.

      I've owned this truck for 9 days and I filled her up for the third time today. My "lifetime" average with her is 12.4mpg.


      Who knew installing mudflaps would require an angle grinder? I'd like to once again thank the chaps in England for making things more complicated than they need to be.

      The hardware that held the original mudflaps was some sort of rount top bolt with a screwed, then crimped nut on it. The rears were easier, but still required the angle grinder. The fronts were utter hell. After I installed the new hardware. There's a lip on both sides, which made the cutting that much more difficult. Not to mention all the other crossmembers and miscellaneous hardware around it.

      After opening the package, it appears the mudflaps aren't OEM, but they're the exact same size. The rubber is nice and thick, so no complaints from me- especially for how cheap they were.



      The rears were easier, but I had to shield the fuel filler lines and gas tank so I wouldn't blow anything up.

      Well that saddens me to hear about the windshield availablity, When I had mine 7 years ago, they were still very available (I had mine replaced by Safelite and it was a heated unit).

      I love the LWB trucks for daily use and carrying people, but they don't have anywhere near the turning radius of the SWB versions for offroad and parking lot use. I swear my SWB '88 could turn around in damn near it's own length.

      And I'm also saddened to see the way the values are going. Mine was a rust free example that I sold for $4500 6 years ago:





      Shoulda kept it and made more money. lol!

      Oh man. A soft-dash LWB.

      Only RR Classic I've ever wanted to own. Because I'm a masochist, though, I'd want it riding on air so I'd reinstall it.

      Very, very nice purchase Mike. I'd leave the interior color but that's just me.

      It's actually not too bad to deal with anymore, what with inexpensive bags from Arnott and rebuilt controllers and even the M.A.R.S. kit for dealing with emergencies when out on the road.
