Spotted Vehicles / Re: Ex Navy Series 3 109 Station Wagon

The colour is not a Landrover colour - specific Navy only. 

They were not navy vehicles as such.  They were Commonwealth plated vehicles (often starting with ZN*-***) and owned by the Dept of Supply/Admin Services on issue to the Navy.  Same with Bedford trucks, buses, mokes, landcruisers etc.

I think it's 50/50 chance it's Navy vehicle

Anyone found any chassis numbers of series 3 vehicles kept by the Navy?

I think it is interesting that Land Rover call it an omnibus on the VIN plate. Are all 10 seaters named that way?

The rear compartments that are located behind the rear wheels ...... but they are not really waterproof at all.
 

The standard 5mm drain hole is at the front of the box and allows water from the spray of the wheel.  I have just used silastic to block the drain hole and around the rivets and I am hoping that if I put a new rubber on the door it will be more waterproof.  If it is I will put a small drain hole into the tub body or one with a lid.  I like to store my recovery gear in a rear locker and it got wet when I tried.

REMLR has a complete parts schedule for the Perentie. http://www.remlr.com/documents/RPS/PUBR001%20-%204x4%20Perentie%20Combined%20V1.01.pdf
From page 704 you start to see details of the rear locker. On page 710 onwards there are examples of both the battery locker setup including sub-frame. Then on page 730 you see the bin version used on the RFSV’s. Unfortunately it doesn’t show any details on the size of the parts. I hope this information help.

It also has the same second hole in the front bumper as the in-service pic on REMLR.

There is an errata (isn't there always??) page now available as a pdf on my website. Nothing of great importance - a few typos and mis-spellings.

You can read a synopsis and download the errata page here:
