    If you put a second hand chassis and axles under your Land Rover you stand a chance of single vehicle type approval (IVA) and a Q plate.

    I did see them at the LRO show (sheilder that is) - as far as i could work out, they are pretty much the same chassis specs as Richards in terms of thickness etc. My only comment would be that some of the welds looked a bit untidy, certainly not as neat as Richards or Marsland. I personally favour Richards, mainly because they are about 2 minutes down the road from me, and people who I know have had chassis from their have had no complaints. They are also pretty good to deal with if you want anything custom or extra.

    The nearside tubular outrigger was half an inch out on my Richard's Chassis. :( Caused a canny bit of hassle when rebuilding my Landy. :mad:

    Didn't go for a shielder chassis in the end. I went for a Richard chassis. There not had much different in price and the reviews seem good. Is a rolling chassis now and seem to be going together nicly.

    IMG_3781.JPG IMG_3782.JPG Going through the same process with my 92 Defender. Was MOT'd in January 2017 but we took the decision to take it off the road for a rebuild in May 2017. It was our ex-company vehicle that we'd had since new from '92 and I bought it as I new the history and what needed doing to it. I was shocked at the corrosion on the top chassis rails where it couldn't be seen. Bought a nice new galvanised chassis from Richards which was then etched and sprayed with black raptor.
