RocKeR Posted September 8, 2006 Share Posted September 8, 2006 A few months ago with the help of my good buddie and mentor, Nick 'RogueVogue' Watts, we took this perfectly good 1991 Range Rover Classic 3.9 Vogue SE... ..and started to do this to it: A 15" gap appeared in the back of my car.. ..and it ended up like this: So we thought we'd better stick it back together again.. ..and made sure the spare wheel still fitted inside. It is a Range Rover after all. The spare belongs inside! On went the new rear cross member.. ..and the roof. Then we fitted the new rear winch bumper, designed for an EP9 SuperWinch. The space taken up by the spare wheel and the winch is where the fuel tank used to live. Very neat! Side view with exhaust exit hole in bumper. Wheel tray in place. Tailgate hinges welded onto cross member, and fuel tank paraphenalia in situ. No - we hadn't forgotton the fuel tank! Note the removable winch tray... Inner panel fitted with fuel filler assembly. The fuel tank! It fits nicely between the rear seats (Yes - I did keep them!) and the spare wheel tray, and remarkably has a bigger capacity than the original. 96 litre tank compared to the 88 litre standard tank. We made use of the original fuel sender/pump. It really did turn out to be a plug & play fuel tank swap! Spare wheel in situ. To be continued....
