Greetings from Portugal
- Feb 11, 2021 - 14:34
Hello everyone
In 1996 I bought a Land Rover Serie 1 (86 "1956 ex fire engine) in a scrap yard.
Despite having the engine seized, it was complete and almost without rust.
After two years of learning to be a "mechanic and painter", the Land Rover was back on the road!
Best /smile ratio ever!!

Best regards
5 Thanks.

Love the truck. I did a similar wrap on my late 66 steering wheel. A guy who does guns and boats did it.

I like how yours came out.

1 Thank you.

Thank you Braddock,

Beautiful series 2.

About the steering wheel, mine was parachute cord and youtube. Two hours well spent ...  :banghead:

Another picture. 1997, "middle" of the restoration.

Best regards
