Apparently when LandRover changed from metal to plastic, the Aussie market complained cos they used to take them off & use them as BBQ racks! Smiley

Removed chequer  plate from wing top, bit rough under but no bigy.
wing sitting in better position now, will sit about 3 inches lower than on tape, with bumper sitting lower.
looks like panels will clean up ok. sorry for lots of pics.

I really can't imagine what's in your mind for the finished look - I guess that's why you keep posting pics of little bits of, to keep us guessing! - It works!

I think I'd just run a couple of horizontal slats across the rad opening -nothing too complicated, & my vote would be for a single colour on the lot -but that's why it's your build & not mine Smiley
"Junkyard Dog" surely, as it's made from a mixture of Rover parts?

Series 3 grill, which will have 2/3rds removed,
and bottom off bonnet shut line will be folded upwards so bonnet sits flat on wings.
