Dear all, Allready long time guesst on this forum, watching how other people doing nice restorations. But would like to share my restoration on my first car. The car I own is a: Land-Rover 109' SIII Diesel Made for the Dutch military. End of last year I bought her, verry happy! Always been a huge fan of the lovely British Land-Rover and finally own one. The Dutch army owned Land-Rovers in a few different designs. The moment I bought my Land-Rover I didn't know much about the type of cars the army owned. Did some research on the internet and found out mine was a bit different. The car I own is a : ''Commando & scout car'' Only 250 were made in this version. This is how she should look like: Quite impressive. And this how my car looked like the moment I went visiting it before buying: Quite different he, But if you compare the bonnet brackets and brackets on the rear-tub you see some agreements. My goal is to bring her back to the original state! So complete with gun pedestal, aerial, spare wheel carrier, etc. etc. At he moment I'm stripping the front. Need to replace al the fluids, filters and lots more. So she isn't pretty anymore:blush: Lot's of grease, oil, tectyl and rust. Ok here pictures! This is her home for this winter, nice and dry! Removed the first wing. New rear leaf springs. Because one top leaf was broken. Both wings removed. Grille pannel removed. Not bad for a almost 40 year old lady:) Inside, still looking 'fresh' My MAG pedestal, very lucky with it, these things are so rare. Also did manage to find a original spare wheel carrier. Ok guys, hope you like it and do understand my texting. I'm for The Netherlands, so my English isn't always 100% faultless I guess. Sorry for that. If you have anny questions, feel free to comment! All the best, Jan
Dear all, My name is Jan, 21 years old and living in the Netherlands. At the moment I'm almost done with school. Last year I bought my first car, a 1977 Land Rover SIII 109 diesel. It's a Ex. Dutch military vehicle, but not a regular one. It's one out of 250 Commando vehicels. Allready did couple of jobs on the car, and try to make it 100% technical allright. So I can drive this summer! I will post on this forum my restoration progress. This is my car: All the best, Jan
