Useful Australian Series Landrover Resources

Updated: Jul 14

These are a few resources that I have used so far.


Websites

Books/Magazines

  • John Carroll, LAND ROVER SERIES 11/11A - Good coffee table book for some inspiration

  • Classic Land Rover Magazine available on www.pocketmags.com

YouTube Channels

Parts Retailers

  • 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.
