About Headlight Panels
The Land Rover headlight panel is part of a structural frame which is made of sheet metal and is positioned at the front of the vehicle and attached behind your front bumper of the vehicle using metal rivets and bolts. The Land Rover headlight panel is then covered with a body coloured cover made of fibreglass or plastic to match the rest of the bodywork.
The headlight is mounted to the Land Rover headlight panel and the panel supports the weight of the headlight. On some vehicles the headlight panel is one large framework piece and on others the headlight panel consists of two parts, the driverside and the passenger side.
Because it’s covered by the front bumper the Land Rover headlight panel is well protected from the elements, but corrosion can occasionally occur. Damage is much more likely to be caused by a collision with another vehicle, which can bend or break the Land Rover headlight panel. Depending on the impact of the collision this can misalign the headlights or bumper and so replacement of the Land Rover headlight panel will be required after any serious front collision.
Land Rover trivia
- The Range Rover designer hated what he had made. Charles Spencer "Spen" King CBE, was focused solely on designing a large V8 engine, and then just drew a box around it to show where the engine would sit. It annoyed him for the rest of his life, and he insisted that he'd only put 0.1% of development time on the car shape. He also hated that they would be used for anything other than farming, saying, "...to use them in the school run, or even in towns and cities at all, is completely stupid."
- Land Rover was the two-decade standout winner of the Camel Trophy, a gruelling off-road challenge that sees vehicles compete in Siberia, the Sahara, Australia, and other hostile terrains.
- The designer Charles S. King worked with Rolls Royce to design jet engines before going on to build the Range Rover. King would go onto building a car around those jet engines that then held the world land speed record, the first turbine-powered vehicle to do so.
- One of the most unique vehicles ever was the floating SUV designed and built by Land Rover. Unfortunately, the Floating Ninety Defender led many drivers to believe that their own Land Rovers could also float, and many cars were driven into lakes as a result.
- Inspired by the Jeeps that had been used in WWII, the first Land Rover's steering wheel was in the middle of the dashboard. This was partly to counter the need to create left and right-hand drive models for different countries.
