I've got one but it is in bits requiring tailgate hinges and the front bumper fixing. Sorry that this post isn't much help as there are no pictures but tailgates and bumpers do seem to be weak spots. I would be interested to see how others have fixed these problems.
I received my first Landrover in the post yesterday from the very generous vonsturm, it is a bit of a basket case poor thing but as I keep seeing on here the ethos is "no man left behind" in this case a Landy.
The story so far, Only one wheel centre present, no tailgate (found one in the spares box from a bundle - broken hinge), no engine moulding (a trip to ebay sorted that), same scenario for the bonnet, spare wheel for bonnet in spares box and the straps came with the car, no gear stick but good steering wheel, 4 tyres present and all bumbers and windsheild missing. oh and all lights seem to be present at the front.
Ive seen a gear stick on ebay for £17 so doubt ill ever get one at that, if this is what they go for. (anyone got a spare for a realistic price?)
anyway ill keep you informed of the progress,
also, are thesecmetal straps original? not sure what they are for?
Custom 101...........I'm finding it hard to tell if this is real or not. Looks like you have put in photos from the Land Rover sales catalog! The only giveaway is the personal number plate. Magnificent work daz , is there no end to your talents.
Ah, I was looking at this beauty on a Landrover website the other day, when I read about it I knew it was yours, how long did that take I really like it. I'm working on more humble Jeep with a Canvass top.
I didn't take long but spread over a long period (about 6 months). could have done it quicker and easier but I wanted it to strip down. not quite to scale either but not much Actionman stuff is . I was going to make my jeep with a hood but decided to do the medic jeep.
Are you a land rover fan or did you just stumble on the post?
Great 101 daz! I got my 1st issue jeep for christmas 1974.no engine, no tray and no strengthening bars.I managed to break the front bumper on boxing day when it crashed into a table leg.i WILL have another 1st issue one day.nice and boxed.
