LR 90 - Inner Wings

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Started to strip the 90 down to sort out engine / clutch / gearbox issue.

Was wondering

Seriously

The inner wings - I have the galv type know there are plastic types.

Does anyone NOT run either on / off road, and does it cause huge issues or not ?

Mine - fill with mud and goo on both sides, so was seriously wondering ...

Thoughts ?

Aren't the plastic ones simply a liner for the steel ones?

Without any inners wings you'll end up with an even dirtier engine bay! You may think it gets mucky under the bonnet now, but consider how much mud Simexes shift...

What are you hoping to gain if none fitted?

And all those nice sharp stones that get picked up by your tyres and flung forward straight through the radiator etc....

Keep them and buy a decent jetwash.

You would be surprised how little engine bay/wheel arch protection the current generation of challenge trucks are running. It certainly makes cleaning down and field repair work much easier. Bit of a swings and roundabouts type issue.

I ditched them ages ago. No problems. Only the brake booster goes a bit rusty, which could one day mean it stops working. I meant to make some splash guards like a series 3, but in plastic, but it hasn't happened yet.

It makes working on your car much easier, because things like exhaust manifolds or a starter motor can be accessed via the wheelarch.

Thinking some more I'm sure I recall reading about someone having made parts of their inner wings removable for accessing certain components.

I think it may have been Ash Witty with his Cummins powered 110.

I'm planning on running them, but they'll be a home brew version to give me as much space in the wheel arch as possible. They'll also be easily removed for servicing/access.

I cut some large cut out on mine to make starter and steering box hoses easier to change. had no problem.

Cut outs were only 6 x 4 or so.
