    For a long time i wanted to build a Land Rover and it should be the one i had for manny years .
    The Land Rover i had was a old Land Rover radiocar from the U.K. Marines in Norway , the car did his duty in Joegoslavia and later in Kosovo .
    Than the the car was sold by the English Army , because of it's history the the car was painted green/black and than whitte and than green/black .
    So when i baught the car he there was enough paint on it , so the painted started to peel of bud it didn't bother me , i always licked it that way .
    It was MY good old Laro for the music i had put in a 1500W sound system . The seats where from a Suzuki Swift GTI .
    The fun is when you start a projekt like this , you have to surch for pictures and than the past is comming back (you start to feel old) .

    In that time i was helping a companie that orginises offroad trips and 4x4 vacations , the companie was called the Recreatieve .
    Here are some pictures of that time (the car left was mine)

    Looking great so far, I think the Dingo is a great platform to build from. Good luck with your build and please post lots of pictures for us all to check out.
