Starting with the major restoration of a 1971 Land Rover Series IIA, ROVERHAUL grew into a hub for that restoration, a Land Rover Picture Gallery and Ovalnews, a Land Rover news site.

The restoration of our 1971 Land Rover Series IIA was a great time. We took it all the way down to the frame, touching nearly every nut & bolt. It documented the learning process for someone like me who loves driving cars, but didn’t have much experience tinkering with them. I had some amazing help from Chris, Sam, Faris & Kal – Could not have done it without them – after all, it was Sam who talked me into it and Faris who provided the space & more. Now looking back almost twenty years, I can only imagine how much more connected we would have been doing it now.

Currently between projects, I promise that 1981 Range Rover will drive like new one day. I’ve put up all the pictures (almost 1600) from the restoration along with some specific articles about what we did and how. I still hear from so many people asking all sorts of questions. I really try my best to answer each one. The number one question is always, “Can you restore my Rover?”. And I always have to answer the same way, these are all personal projects and not a true commercial endeavor. I do recommend anyone who has the passion, time and means to go for it. It’s a really interesting and rewarding project.

The Picture Galleries now have over 6000 images. You can see our projects, Land Rovers through the years and our huge collection of Land Rover advertisements, Press Releases and Official Photography. You can get a real feel for how Land Rover has advertised the vehicles from 1948 through today.

Our YouTube Channel is a great source for Land Rover videos. We’ve made our own and curated playlists of some others.

We were honored to have David Bowers do a great 4 page article on the ROVERHAUL project for the August 2007 issue of Land Rover Monthly. We love this magazine and it was an honor to be featured. Thanks LRM!
