    Very cool post and idea.

    Would be great to design a home theater room using LR seats you no longer need; perhaps play Camel Trophy flicks all day. ARB fridge stocked w/cold ones.

    RRClassicBT550, your design is a good start.

    I had some old stock springs that I ended up recyling; should have kept them and used them as for a bar stool project.

    And if I am able to take good photos of LR in action, I would cut-up old LR sheet metal and use it for photo frames of LR photograhps or artwork.

    Just my thoughts. Good wine tonight.

    A few more pics...still have a little ways to go though

    Hello,

    I am just getting in from working on the couch and figured I should post some more pics of the current progress. I made the sheet metal piece for the cup holders and also made the lower center shelf. I still have to make the two bottom shelves and do the bead rolling on them as well as the bead rolling on the lower center shelf beneath the console; then paint and it will all be done.

    RonCT110, a movie theater that showed Camel Trophy flicks all day would have me front row center, except for the Tierra del Fuego event in 1998 when they used the Freelanders because that one was.......well, not up to par. However, if you combined your rover springs idea with Roverons' spinning wheel hub idea for some bar stools, and then add in access to an ARB fridge full of cold ones, it might make the screening of the 1998 event more entertaining.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone.

    Have a good one.

    Jonathan

    1988 RRC rolling restoration & customization

    <a href="http://www.LRRForums.com/showthread.php?19302-The-Rolling-Restoration-amp-Customization-Of-My-88-RRC" target="_blank">My Range Rover Classic build thread</a>

    Does anyone have a set of early 80's (4 door) front doors or door uppers w/ quarter windows for sale? I want to convert my rover to the quarter window style front doors.

    Hey Jonathan, how's your project coming along. Might really look into re-using my old DII seats and do something similar to what you are doing.

    Add an ARB fridge full of beer, snacks, home entertainment system and re-runs of Camel Trophy movies, might turn out to be favorite room.

    Thinking.... I have some old metal tail light guards for my RRC; might play around with the idea of making it in a wine rack.

    Humm.. what can do with old axle shafts

    Cool project! Reminds me of Nick Baggerly (Drive Around the World expeditions), who put a cut-down front clip from a Series II Land Rover on the wall above his bed, complete with original Lucas headlamps that dimly flickered. I wonder what Nick is up to these days.

    Save your old head bolts. Sharpen them and weld them on your bumper as Mad Max zombie spikes. After a few years, should be able to make the thing like like a porcupine.

    I would take an old shell and turn it into a trailer.
    I spend more time fixing things than using them. My motto is " If it breaks.... F it I'll weld it"
