Good result - the engine/driveline is a non goer because... or is it trailered because of rego hassles?

It's a driveable vehicle Ross. No brakes unfortunately. Still has original motor and SASR modifications.

You just have this uncanny ability to find rare vehicles in very good condition.

A sensational find mate.

Went back up to Wongan Hills today and picked up the S3.

The original LRPV guard side panels will be removed and installed on 175-196 in the coming weeks.

I think I can say no progress on Tommys behalf as he has been busy with other non-Landy projects.

Update...

Finally got around to swapping over the square cut guards onto 196. I also took the opportunity to remove all the civilian add-ons and return it back to it's original LRPV configuration.

How she looked before transformation.



Angle grinded the face off the civilian guards so as I could get to those troublesome bolts. This made the job soooo much easier. I also removed the small aluminium panels fitted to the base of the guard front panels. These were used to extend the front panels to accommodate the civilian side panels.



Fitted the original guard side panels to both sides.

Removed the hardtop and windscreen.



Re-fitted the original scrub deflectors to both sides.



Cleaned out the cockpit and tub. Re-installed the FFT tub bulkhead mounted tool holders.

Tub interior is in exceptional condition with no dents or damage. I fitted some LRPV parts to show how it would look. Fuel tank, box tailgate, inner tub storage bins and another set of floor mounted storage bins require manufacturing to complete. The ROPS bar also required completing. These items are of simple construction and will be a straight forward task during a restoration.





A good days work over.
