Range Rover overland camper build diary : part 6

Always something else to do

There is always something else to add..

so after many months I finally get the rear step design finalised and after a mock up was tested at the Scottish Hillrally I made a lightweight alloy version.1

The last job ( almost 😜 ) was to get a new number plate, well actually it wasn’t because we already had Milly on the plate but up popped DAK8R on ebay ,
