    Default Intro, Yet another LR guy

    Hello all,

    I've posted some but have not introduced myself. My name is Todd Eliason and I am a hopeless fan of the Range Rover Classic and all things LR. I live in Sherwood Oregon near Portland.

    My current project is a 1993 RRC LWB. Just finished the 300TDI conversion in October (should say my trusted mechanic, Scott Williams, finished it). Now to install the TruTracks, GBR Front axles, custom sliders, etc. Ultimate goal with this will be my ideal Exped rig with ultimate simplicity.

    I have been driving RRC's since 1994, and my wife drives a DiscoII. Interests are Search and Rescue and Communications (radio). Attached is a picture of the stable, although I recently sold the 1988 RRC (green one) to fund finishing the LWB. (dumb mistake, I miss the 1988 tremendously for a trail rig)

    I have really enjoyed lurking on the board and have chimed in a few times if I felt I had value.

    I have great memories of kicking around in the Kalahari in a RRC when I was ten. Amazing vehicles and well suited to this kind of work. Also well suited to being a hard core trail rig!

    Welcome!

    cheers
