United Kingdom 2004 Range Rover Autobiography Black Td6 Java Black

Pictures to catch up with the story so far.

The V8 (Oscar) has now got horrible IMO wheels on:






Pictures to show what my poltergeist was for the bootlid opening. Sad to say I have to evict the poltergeist from my other Range Rover as well Laughing










While I was at it I also fitted a reverse camera, but not happy with the outcome of how it looks on the car.



I also finally fitted my custom engine cover.






And then finished the prototype 3rd brake light. (I have placed this story on the V8's timeline as I have been testing it on this Range Rover).


















I will be selling the prototype soon. And I will be starting my own car styling brand again soon.

I have also got another brake light that I will be starting soon. I will be getting a workshop built in my rear garden in the spring of 2019, so I will be able to spend more time doing the custom parts.

Took Oscar out on Saturday to deliver some Range Rover wheels to the back and beyond of the Isle of Grain lol. Gearbox on live data was frequently reaching 146 degrees. It kept acting like it was in sports mode, so pulled over around 5 times to let the gearbox cool down. I am not sure if the sticking caliper is having anything to do with this, or the thermostat showing as stuck open.

So I guess the list is starting to grow lol.

Last of the big spenders lol, After getting lost and ending up at the wrong restaurant in the other RR, decided that it was about time I got the parts to sort out the reverse light on this one. £7.15 well spent. Can't wait to get it all sorted.

I tried to sort out the reverse light seized screw problem, but unfortunately was misinformed elsewhere as to the part I needed, my fault also for not double checking. I was told it was a plastic insert for the screw to go into, but it is infact a metal one. Gave up for today.

Drove Oscar down to the Malta Inn near Maidstone, nearly got clamped as I missed the signs stating you have register your car in the restaurant. I wasn't the only motorist that missed the signs. But nearly 22mpg all the way and all the way back, I was very happy, it behaved itself the entire journey. But those wheels are really really really bugging me!

I chose this location for Thursday's lunch after finding out it was in a picturesque location.

Well, as promised, after the black one passed its MOT, it was time to give Oscar some attention, the cracked wheel is now at Spit & Polish being welded and straightened, as it turns out, it had a flat spot as well as the crack. Hoping the other wheels don't. Also didn't pay attention to the marking on the rear of the wheels. So these are just replica wheels, But I don't mind. They are now near the top of my list to get done.

I got the wheel back, minus the centre cap which I only noticed today lol. Can't tell that it has been straightened or welded apart from the huge yellow letters inside saying weld and straighten lol.

Have been quoted £40 per wheel from another company to give them a full repaint inside and out in any colour of my choice, which would be silver lol. But thinking I might just have a go myself first. Then if I screw it up, get the professionals in Laughing










I am looking forward to getting these wheels on the car now. I may have to fit them without getting them painted.
Just need wheel nuts from a 2006 onwards Range Rover.

I will be limping this one around for another year while I get a few other bills sorted, then will really get stuck in and make is a great car again. I think another £3500 and this one will be in top condition again.
