Default Land Rover 110 Pickup

Been a fun 3 weeks

Started with this...


Then to this...


Then here


OOOH! How about a Safety Devices Headache bar? YEAH!


Then...maybe a bit more...


Door handles and some rust next up is to finish my 1/4 depth pelican case to cover the body posts out back and to build the spare mount for the hood. There will be no spare, much less on the hood ( its a flippin horrible place to mount a tire, even with the correct bonnett and a tiny tire it kills visibility) I just want the apparatus there to hide the body pins





Well, now Logan needs some more protection...









Starts are:
SCX10
HH 27T Torquemaster Pro
CVD front axles, updated tranny outputs and diff inputs for pins.
Bunch of other random fun stuff.

Revamped the front with a Reign RC Defender Grille for a Dingo...perfect fit. Just sanded down the stock grille a bit.

The Snorkel head started as two .036" strips of hastelloy scrap I had. I cut one strip and shaped it into a "C" and that is the walls...the top and bottom are pieces I trimmed, then tig welded to the "C." First I tacked them on then shaped the top and bottom a bit better, then seam welded the whole deal. I drilled the bottom out to fit the 5/16" main snorkel pipe. The grate in the snorkel head is the inner section of an Axial light cover trimmed to fit and glued in with some metal bonding CA we have at work.







Snorkel is held in with RTV and I'm working on a small bracket to run from the cage to the pipe.
