Mark Evans embarks on a brand new project, aiming to transform an old rust-bucket Range Rover into the ultimate boulder-crawling beauty!
Mark Evans fabricates outriggers and supports on his off-road chassis to support the bodywork - drastically modified with a plasma cutter.
While the chassis is stripped completely bare, Mark Evans embarks on a welding masterclass with an in-depth look at both MIG and TIG welding.
Mark Evans gets down to the nitty-gritty of rebuilding the differentials on his 4x4, fitting a diff-lock for better off-road capabilities.
After steam-cleaning his V8 engine and gearbox, Mark takes the stripped gearbox to a specialist for restoration.
With the newly galvanised chassis back in the workshop, Mark sets about creating a radical new suspension.
While the V8 engine is stripped to check its condition, Mark Evans starts work on the off-road roll-cage for the extreme 4x4.
While the damaged bodywork is prepared for spraying Mark finally begins the rebuild of his V8 engine, including fitting a high-performance camshaft.
Mark Evans finishes rebuilding the new high-performance engine and finally mounts it back onto the rolling chassis of his extreme off-roader.
Mark Evans fits and assembles the bulkhead to the chassis of the 4x4 and then turns his hand to the fine art of painting.
Mark Evans attaches the fuel tank, carbs, exhaust and starter motor to the new engine of the 4x4, but can he get the monster engine to purr?
The 4x4 build progresses and attention turns to the interior as the floorpans, glass and windows are mated to the shiny new body.
Mark fits a winch, side protection, snorkel and tail gate to the 4x4, before investing in top notch security - but forgets his wedding anniversary.
The specially tailored bucket seats are fitted, plus the last of the windows and door panels. Then Mark gets scientific with the suspension and wheels.
With just a few finishing touches left to make the 4x4 is complete - and the serious business of testing this bolder-crawling beauty can begin.
