    ARAMCO had vast boneyards filled with old Land Rovers, Dodge Power Wagons etc. A lot of stuff got abandoned/ stored but never scrapped- for years...

    See if you can find them- if they still exist they are a gold mine of parts, I don't know exactly where they were, if they were in Dubai or Saudi Arabia or where there.

    http://www.lrfaq.org/Series/FAQ.S.Chassis.tracing.html the info there might help you find out more on your 88"

    Default Progress is progressing :p

    Hi all,

    Here to share the progress of my project rebuild; the work last few weeks was one remove all parts on the truck and restore the chassis therefore it will good foundation to start with as all is doing, here below is three photo of progress on chassis:

    Chassis before: http://flic.kr/p/bb5XVx
    Chassis during: http://flic.kr/p/bmpDsn
    Chassis after: http://flic.kr/p/brMpVz

    In the same time body works started and waiting for primer and paint work, there was some wholes discovered while removing the paint, where I believed it used for antenna:

    Carrier striped off: http://flic.kr/p/bmpGng
    Right wing where bridge plate mark still there :http://flic.kr/p/bmpEHg
    Left wing & antenna whole after it is weld: http://flic.kr/p/bmpFEr
    Firewall before: http://flic.kr/p/bb63jH
    Firewall during: http://flic.kr/p/bmv1m6
    Firewall progress is going on

    I know some are asking about the engine so...the original engine found totally costly replacing it's parts such as crank and camshaft; therefore, my uncle offered me another engine, when I checked it I found it belong to S3 8:1

    Old engine: http://flic.kr/p/aZetRM
    New enginez: http://flic.kr/p/bpwSH4 (you can imagine enviroment where I am living)

    The engine in progress for rebuild, it's found piston head require replacement and today in milling shop to check if milling is require.

    You may see another image on my flicker account. I tried to attach the picture but it doesn't works

    Regards,
    Ahmad

    Uncles are great. Uncles who also have Land Rover parts are even better.

    Great job on the restoration. Love the color, and the shot on the beach with the kayaks.
