I need a badge on mine, I might try to see if I can get one similar to yours.
Thanks! Just get yourself a Series 3 grille and carefully cut out the Land Rover section!

Re: Grille badge wanted

I made the grille badge out of a Series 3 grille. Chris Mahoney told me the original was like that and was stolen years ago.

Re: New owner of RHP175R

I made the grille badge from a cut down series 3 badge! I have an old photo of RHP showing the original was made like that, as was the badge on the Stage 2 mule station wagon. Staff Dewson told me he was asked to camouflage the prototypes and simply screwed a series 3 grille on. RHP still has holes ...

Re: New owner of RHP175R

Hi again folks. Not been on here for a while but I thought you might be interested in a few updates which will also be in CLR in the future. RHP is now looking rather fine with a new bare metal respray in original Marine Blue and I've put a few more miles on the clock. I've done a fair bit of resear...

Re: New owner of RHP175R

RHP is back on the road! Passed the mot a couple of days ago. It's currently in York but I'll bring it home next month to start a rolling restoration. I'll post pics on occasion. Oh, and I've also discovered the whereabouts of prototype LR16!

I mean the silver 'Land Rover' badge that goes on the front panel. Unique to Stage one, stage 2 FEPs and early 127s.

Hi folks,
I've got round to hunting down parts required for RHP 175R. I've managed to pick up a few but I'm on the look out for a stage one grille badge. Anyone got one they would be willing to part with?
Cheers

Re: New owner of RHP175R

Hi folks. A couple of weeks ago I had a long chat to Christopher Mahoney, RHPs previous owner and from whom it was stolen. He filled me in on a few details , he bought it back in 1992 so had a long time with it. He has just released a book that folks on here might be interested in. It's called Archi...
