I have a 1984 Land Rover 90 parts car that could be built into a 90 beach runner. I have a lot of spares and after a rear cross member repair, it looks really do-able. However, I need a rear tub. 

I can get a 110 tub from a two door relatively cheaply. Has anyone ever cut one down to fit a 90?

I have seen the video of Mark Evans fabbing the tub for his 100", and if a 90 tub was available in good shape I would go that way, but a 110 tub is all that seems to be available on this side of the Atlantic.

Any thoughts?

I haven't done it but I can't see why not.

You need to cut the cappings and relocate the fuel filler.

The only real problem I can think of is if the 110 body is longer behind the wheel arch. You may need to be creative with rear cross member location. That may cause knock on problems with the roof if you are thinking of a solid one.

Another way could be either acquiring a Hi-cap truck cab lower rear section or chopping your 110 tub off  .

Then you can tray back or what ever takes your fancy ?

The 110 is longer from the rear wheel centre to the rear face of the tub as Mo says .

Could be an interesting project either way you go . Keep us posted 

cheers

I seem to remember reading somebody who'd done just that.

Involved cutting both front & rear using the wheearch as the reference point

Not easy - but should be doable.

Interesting project

I'd say definitely do-able but a lot of work. But if it's what you've got then it's what you've got. I know (myself included) plenty of people that "because I can" is a perfectly good reason.

Friend at work has just shortened a 110 tub both ends. He’s made the rear a 90 length overhang and then the front is shortened enough to fit on a 100”

Mine is a 110 tub shortened to fit a 100" wheelbase. No reason why you couldn't make it fit a 90 instead. 

Take the outer wing skins off and move them forward the required amount, then lop a huge chunk off the back.
