Series 2a, 3 hybrid?
« on: October 31, 2011, 14:11:00 »
Good afternoon! has anyone got any thoughts on a series 2a 109 safari, with the headlights in the grill, then series 3 wings with lights too? too much? my 2a has no wings so thought of leaving the lights in the grill, and maybe covering the light holes in the wings, or 4 lights...... mmmmm

If you can't get there in a Land Rover you can't get there

Self built Range Rover/Lightweight hybrid (yes the one with yellow wheels)

if you're local to me (birmingham) i could loan you a pair of series 3 wings to trial fit so you could make your own mind up

i've seen pictures of this 4 light set up and think it's ok but a lot of folks aren't so keen
it ain't broke ...

i ain't fixed it enough

Looks odd to me but not horrendous, rivet counters would probably burn you but anything that makes the series more practical for modern road use is a bonus.

I've seen a very similar vehicle and I'm doing the same; my 2a has S3 wings and had a bodged s3 front panel, I found a S2 front panel on ebay so that will be going on instead.

I've also seen numerous S3s with spots bolted to the bumper inboard of the wings so it's a very common look.

Anyway, what's WRONG with OTT?? These are Land Rovers!
