Re: Gumtree again

I am starting a restoration of a 5 door here in the USA and I was thinking about choosing the white and sand color scheme but was not sure if there was enough contrast in the two colors to make it look ok. All sand is too monochromatic, I think. I like sand over red the most - but I already have a ...

Re: Speedometer

Thanks map (thought you'd know) That settles it as I thought - I had been labouring under a misapprehension (couldn't remember the number on my old Series 3 109 2.25 - probably never took any notice of it back then as long as it worked)

Re: Replacement brake servo

I needed one last year. My garage supplied and fitted a pattern one and said they'd guarantee it for a year if they did so, No problems so far (I hope not famous last words) It came in a Britpart box and was made in Taiwan, so I at least feel I'm doing my bit to support non-Communist Taiwan! :)

Re: Seeking Photos

Surely your best bet is the Series 3 Parts Catalogue: http://www.retroanaconda.com/landrover/2010/03/series-iii-parts-book/ and maybe searching google images. As map says, there are variations.

Re: Stage 1 Project

Nice looking truck.

A new Richards galvanised chassis is best if you've the money - no idea what it would cost to ship such a thing to the States

Thanks for posting this. Here's the link to the Series 3 webpage of the Dunsfold Collection: http://www.dunsfoldcollection.co.uk/collection/series3#main From this I also see that Stage 1 prototype THP 74R, which I've seen for sale a couple of times over recent years, has also found its way into the ...
