Title: Andrew (gragravar) 1992 Range Rover County
Post by: gragravar on July 17, 2007, 09:30:05 PM
the beater truck!

I picked this up cheap to drive while the allroad was out of service getting its upgrades.  it is a beater, there is significant rock damage, some rust, and the center differential will not lock.  but, it runs well and will be a fun project truck.

only pic I have of it is the one Jon took the day I bought it:

it has been a good couple weekends for the rover.

last weekend I replaced the lower tailgate.  the old one was a little rusty -

then this weekend I had some more fun with it:

when I started this morning it looked like this:

this one shows the new to me lower tailgate I installed last week. there had been a touch of rust around the holes for the license plate mount, so last week I got them cleaned up with a wire brush, then painted them.  looks pretty good:

this weekend, I got a ball for the hitch, got the license plate mounted in the right spot (that was a pain - there were just bare holes in the metal nothing to hold the license plate screws. I ended up using drywall brackets.)  then I added an expedition basket and moved the spare tire to the basket.

this was "done" for today.

got the 32" offroad tires on and also added a nice ARB bumper.

I have also acquired a non rusty upper tailgate that I still need to put on the truck
