With help from Hill Country British in San Antonio, I'm starting a rebuild of my old 109" NADA station wagon. I've collected a rebuilt 3.9 and automatic transmission from a '94 Range Rover. I recently purchase the remains of a Stage One that burned up to the bulkhead, which will donate axles, manifolds, y-pipe, radiator and various sundry items.

I still need an LT230 transfer case with a 1.1 or 1.222:1 ratio and would appreciate leads. More posts to come.

I found an LT230 from a 2004 Disco II with the cable shifter setup, the e-brake assembly as well as a cable shifter for the transmission. This should keep the shifters on the floor and allow for the continued use of the middle seat. We're moving forward. Another project ahead of mine in the shop is getting close to finishing, which should put Tortuga in line for a massage...

Thanks for posting. I'm looking forward to watching this vehicle's transformation!

I'm questioning what to do with the steering relay. It sits in the front crossmember but I think I need more radiator for the V8 than the resultant space allows. The Stage 1's relay is on the inside of the left hand frame rail and, if I use it, I have an issue with the length of the pitman arm, which brings me to another dilemma; would I be happier with power steering? I think the answer is yes but I don't want to use a Defender, RRC, Discovery or 110 steering column.

I have a 1959 banjo spoke wheel with a rebuilt box and don't want to destroy the column but sure would love to use the wheel. I understand the offset series wheels coupled with a defender column would push the steering wheel practically into my chest. So, now I'm scratching my head hoping for a eureka moment. I'll keep you posted.

No solutions for the on steering and radiator, yet. Get back to you with more details.

Wiring harness just showed up. More parts from across the pond on the way. Still waiting on a tracking number.

I've been busy with a mean work schedule and nothing's happened since the earlier posts but I expect to be moving forward again in about three weeks. After a month of U.S. Customs trickling parts out to me, I think it all arrived. The attached picture is of the crew doing the heavy lifting, Brett, Terry and Josh. Get back to you with more details.

Finally getting back to work! Axles are getting swapped today.

Anyone need a 109" Stage 1 with 3.5L V-8, LT95 transmission with frame needing one small patch?

Any more progress Ray?

Not enough to measure. The shop doing the work has been slammed and I've been shunted to the side. The shop owner has installed the fuel tank and the replacement of the wiring loom is next.

Progress always seems to come much more slowly than we wish... hang in there and persevere.
