My new '88 RRC project

I recently acquired my second 88 Range Rover. It was such a good deal I couldnt pass it up. The first mod you notice is the entire hood top is sprayed in bedliner. The hood was bent/dented, so after I fixed it-instead of matching paint- I spayed it in bedliner. I will be putting the spare tire on the hood, so this will keep from scratching it up. The headlights are H4 conversion projector/halo lights. I have them wired so the halos work as the day-time running lights. The truck had no front bumper when I got it, but I am in the process of building one.

The suspension was replaced with 1" lift springs. I have a set of Toddco billet lift spacers waiting to go on. I will be putting on some 265/75/16s on after the lift.

You will probably see all of my posts in the wanted section because this truck is needing a few things

It isnt as scratched as it looks in a few of the pics; it is covered in dust from sanding the hood.

That is very creative using bedliner for the hood! If you notice in a picture of my hood here, it has rusted through most of the front lip. When I get another hood, I should consider applying bedliner to the hood instead of a green single-stage enamel, cause I will be doing some vigrous off-road cruising. Very cool!

Oh and where did you learn body work? I learned from one of my auto instructors in high school, taught me metal straightening, body filler, painting, etc.. Really cool stuff!

Green hoods are easy to find, so replacing yours should be easy. I have never seen another RR the color of mine. I taught myself body work. I started out doing fiberglass repairs(on jetskis), and went from there.

I used a dremel tool with a reinforced cut-off wheel to trim the front edge of the fenders...it goes through aluminum like butter. The front grille and rear bumper are also sprayed in bedliner.

It needs drivers side exterior and interior door hanles and a window regulator. The console was broken but I build a new one and covered in black vinyl. I also built a piece to replace the piece around the shifter and a filler for the radio handle;also covered in vinyl. I will have some pictures of these things soon.

Very cool! I admire when someone teaches themselves a really useful talent. I taught myself how to sketch cars, I should post pics of my Rover sketches. I'm learning on my own right now to play the guitar, and start jamming with my rommmate.

Very cool stuff!

Right on! Me and my roommate are practicing for some chicks that'll be coming over in a couple of weeks. It'll be "fun".

That is a very clever idea for the hood. Gauranteed never to f-ing rust on ya! Wish I could the same about mine, like seen above.

We dont get much rust here in Mississippi....no snow means no road salt. We do have 100% humidity though...

I will hopefully be installing the lift this weekend. I will most likely be putting on some 265/75/16 Maxxis Bighorns on it. They have a MTR-like sidewall but are less than $500 a set.
