G'day from the Sunshine Coast!

G'day guys,
I have a Land Rover Series 3 109 with Holden 186 conversion on LPG and unleaded which I picked up about 6 months ago now. Just finished putting power steering in using parts from a Nissan MQ Patrol and just putting her back together now then to get a roadie! This is actually my first car as I don't get my P's till mid March but i'm super keen to get her on the road. The car is in excellent condition but is there anything I should check over aside from the obvious things?
Cheers,
Kyle

Here she is (the XXXX sticker got taken off straight away)

Welcome to the Forum.

Good to see another series being tidied up.

With regards to fitting power steering I am fairly certain you will need a blue plate for this. Regarding the rest, check all the usual things paying particular attention to the brakes. If you need any tips regarding adjustment, just ask.

Over the next few months when you start driving it, expect several things to arise requiring attention. This could be anything.

There is plenty of advice here, check out the series sections and welcome aboard.

Cheers

CC

Cheers guys! Yes Col, I was planning on getting the steering engineered but thanks for the heads up. I have heard things about the brakes being a bit dodgy so I will do some work on them (Pads, Bleed, Adjust, etc...) before putting it on the road. The brief moment I drove the car from the trailer to the garage ( a few 100 meters) I managed to lock the the brakes up so i suppose thats a good sign. Aside from that me and my dad have had 3 FJ40 Landcruisers which we have restored so i'm hoping I can us that knowledge on this. I'll be sure to post photos when she's done

G'day & welcome to the forum . . .

Hey did you put crush tubes in the chassis & plate each side of the chassis rail..Mite not get the engineer cert if not ...
Good to see another series with power steering..
I do them to but use toyota series 60 boxes..You'll love the steering conversion so much better ..
I know here in NSW you have to plate each side & use crush tubes or it will never get passed..
I have seen steering conversions done with out them & they have just ripped the box & chassis to peices..
Good luck i hope it gets passed for you as you'll love it ..

Thanks for the welcoming guys!
Banjo: Plated and Crush tubes are in there She's solid! This is actually the 3rd power steering my dad and I have installed except the previous 2 were Landcruiser FJ40's (using 60 series parts) but its pretty much the same thing. Super keen to get her on the road!
