Useful Australian Series Landrover Resources
Updated: Jul 14
These are a few resources that I have used so far.
John Carroll, LAND ROVER SERIES 11/11A - Good coffee table book for some inspiration
Classic Land Rover Magazine available on www.pocketmags.com
Seriously Series - Inspiration for enjoying and maintaining your Series Land Rover
Rover Tasmania - Build diary of a Series 2. Really good instructional walkthroughs of almost every part.
Snakecharmer - Build diary of Series 2 Land rover in the UK.
Phil Sabo - Build diary of a Series 3 Landrover.
North America Overland - Amazing restorations to a very high spec.
Vintage Restorations Australia - Love this channel, all the capers fixing Land Rovers with a bunch of mates.
Geoffrey Croker - Amazing workmanship restoring a Series 2 and very funny.
Coolnvintage - Fancy pictures of fancy people
Auto West Paint Supplies autowest.com.au
Land Rover Heaven https://www.landroverheaven.com.au - Dave D'Arcy is a good guy. He supplied me with a bulkhead and rear crossmember at a decent price.
Mil-Spec Restorations in Victoria https://mil-specrestorations.com.au/ - They fabricate and sell chassis and bulkhead replacement parts. They look like better quality than the UK equivalents and you save time and money on shipping.
LandyBitz on the Gold Coast https://www.landybitz.com.au/ - I have not purchased anything from them yet but they have a wide range of parts and they are distributors of Exmoor Trim products in Australia.
Red Earth Valley Land Rover Hoods located in Brisbane https://www.facebook.com/landrovercanopyredearthvalley/ - They make canvas hoods locally and seem to have a good reputation. From the research that I have done the canvas that is manufactured locally is different to those made overseas to take into account the harshness of the Australian environment. This means that they have a higher UV rating and are less vulnerable to fading and rot.
