Shibu Sir, are you considering this kind of a design or are you keeping it as it looks now.
Dear Raj, Well for time being I am planning to keep it simple and stock. But I have a list of mods planned which will be done in stages and also after collecting the parts.

WOW!!!
This would surely be something to watch out for. I too would like to attempt something like this, so please be sure to let me know. It would be great if we could plan out something together.

Yup I saw it today morning too. If I am not wrong then this one is parked on the main road itself.
I just might be headed there to check the status on my CJ3B in a couple of day.
Cheers

Not good. The work's been stopped as the workshop had to clear all the vehicles from his place due to the commonwealth thing. So the vehicle has been parked at a friends farm house since the 1st of this month.
I spoke the mechanic today and he told me that he would be getting the vehicle within this week and restarting the work.

Thumbs up

Congrats mate, on your dream come true!!

An old timer in Dubai once told me that open Land Rovers used to ferry them between Dubai and Abudhabi, when Sheik Sayed Road was still a 'kacha' desert road!

I am happy that you are getting a lot of support from fellow TBHPiens.

I wish you all the best for the restoration!! If you need my assistance with anything, just let me know!!

Dear Abes,
Thanks for your offer to assist. Yes without teambhp and without help from many bhpians, many of my restorations wouldnt' have been possible at all.

Just a quick update on the Defender.

Last week I manage send some (light weight) parts with a friend of Doc Abheek who was going to Nagpur.

1) Full front Axle overhaul Kit which includes
  • Joint Washers 3 types
  • Gasket - 2 Each
  • Washers 4 Each
  • Oil Seal 4 Eash
  • Seal 2 Each
  • Hub Lock Washer 2 Each
  • Seal Hub 4 Each
  • Oil Seal 4 Each
  • Bearing 4 Each
2) Engine Timing Belt
3) Hub Cabs 4 EAch
4) Gear Box Full Oil Seal Kit
5) Transfer Case Full Oil Seal Kit
6) Radiator Cap
7) Coolant Tank Cap

The work will start tomorrow and will be completed in 2-3 days time. Once its completed I will be sending the remaining parts and Hopefully the Landy will be ready to leave Nagpur to Kerala by Nov 13 or 14th.

Dear All,
Just a quick update, Landy has finally reached home. Myself and HVKumar Sir (the famous traveller on Indian roads and fellow bhpian) set out from Nagpur last Wednesday with myself behind the wheel of Landy and HVK behind my Rally Gypsy, we reached safely to my hometown Adoor, kerala on Friday.

Will post the detailed travelogue soon.
