The RoverHybrids D100 is Craig Reece's of PlantDrive. Craig is a really standup guy, I bought a D90 POE top and roof rack from him. He lives in Berkeley CA. I had several long conversations with him over his D100, and the work Shane performed.
I am finishing up on my new wiring harness and am thinking it would be good to relocate the battery to between the frame behind the center frame cross member (cg and clear up engine compartment space). I know its not the usual place to move the battery, and would make it a pain to jump (will be...
By chance, I do have a set of interior lights for the rear, one is cracked but will glue up fine.
Paddocks has a set of or dutch vents for the top (more leak resistant) but they are pricey and I like the light more then a anemic breeze.
Do the awning thing, it might cost you $40: conduit...
One more thing or a couple....
The hole in the back was for a heater unit to keep the back warm as it sat on cold mornings on hot standby. There was also an electrical connection but can't remember where that is right off, to keep everything powered while engine was off. Additional you might...
Those are tie-downs above the doors, although I have a pic of a amby going ship-board where the tie-downs are rigged but the main rigging its a beam below the frame.
I have put a conduit throught the holes and made a poor-mans awning with some old school collapsible Al poles from a camping...
Look at the box in the front of the amby body on the RHS, usually a small sink was mounted there. Also the RAF versions had just two stretcher carrying positions on the LHS (one low and one hanging), usually the medics would sit on the RHS with the walking wounded (sometimes there were...
I havent done it yet, but I got an extra cubby door from Ike (the amby body Ike had is somewhere in SE Oregon now, it might be Merriman's?) and a 101FC fuel filler from the UK, so when I mount the door the filler wil be inside and match the door on the LH rear.
Your amby body...
Over on Guns and Rovers were are trying to put together a group buy for heated series windscreen. Every series owner knows our defrosters suck. We are going through Trevor at Rovahfarm. Please see this link:
A vespa will fit in the back of a 88 and a 109 and easily in a amby. I think you just need to do it. A rover is one of those things...

I have been driving my S2a ambulance for 10 years in Socal traffic 50-60 miles daily, well I also have a Vespa for short trips. I find the series rover to be zen like. Its a constant attentiveness to small items, that grounds me. Although I make a large salary (200k+) and wear a suit quite...
I pretty sure they would choose to hang it with the backside up, so the zinc doesnt pool in the rear cross member. I am just wondering has anyone had to drill holes in the past, where and what size hole did they drill.
My 88 frame is in great shape, no rust and still had factory chalk marks. I found a galvanizer to do the work ater I finish my welding my engine mounts but he suggested I drill some extra holes for zinc drainage. The question is where and how big to make the holes?
I have the Disco steelies on the ambulance. I like them alot. A little wider and heavier than the Series or Defender steelies. I think TerriAnn has them on her rover, also used in Camel Trophy.
Here a not very good pic of the steelies.
Well, I just ground the lip on the case. The DL dropped right in, :wings:. I will post some pics tonight of the case all back together.
Thanks for everyone's help. I dropped a note to Eaton Friday and am still waiting for a response. I hope it helps others.
I am not concerned that grinding I will be doing will alter the supporting of the cross on the DL as the stock cross is not supported in this area at the ends of the cross either.
Keith: I am positive the "C's" smaller opening is the only thing holding the DL from seating on the cross bores in...
Like I said sorry for the bad pics, the wife took them at my direction over the phone.
OK, see how the stock cross is machined at the end? This is so it passes throught the C open section. Sort of like this Co.
Now the DL cross is not machined on the ends so the cross wont enter the mouth of...
