This seems to come up regularly, but I don't blame you for asking because I couldn't find a link to send you.

Here is the list to the local providers: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7788

Local there is Jeremy at Rocky Mountain Springs - http://parabolicsprings.com/
He doesn't list parts on the website, but he can get pretty much anything you need and has a lot in stock.

I usually order from lrdirect. Ships very fast and has a prepay option on border fees so you don't get stung by customs. Not a great interface for finding parts so best to find what part numbers you need from somewhere else. https://www.lrdirect.com/search_category.php

There is 3brothers in Ontario - http://3brothersclassicrovers.com/

Paddocks is good pricing but they don't give you shipping price until after you've paid for the goods. It's a bit disconcerting. I like their website for figuring out what part number I need - http://www.paddockspares.com/

John Craddock's is exhaustive but it's easier to use if you already have the part number. https://www.johncraddockltd.co.uk/

Rovers North - expensive and have their own part number system. I don't use them http://www.roversnorth.com/Land-Rover-Parts/WebHomePage

Atlantic British - I haven't used them: http://www.roverparts.com/

Rimmer Bros - I haven't used them: https://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/SubCategor ... y-2--m-292

Rovah Farm - I've bought things a couple times. Shipped fast but I got hammered on duty as they used to only use UPS who is evil. I think they have switched to USPostal Service so might be better now. http://www.rovahfarm.com/

Rock Auto - I've used them for other cars and they list a lot of rover stuff. They are better cross border than they used to be. http://www.rockauto.com/

That's all I can think of.

My favourite of the UK suppliers is LRDirect. They provide pricing in CAD and are clear on the source and brand of all parts. Shipping is 2 day via DHL and well priced. In addition, you get shipping costs right away.

Paddock Spares is horrible. There is no point ever buying from the States. The prices are higher on the parts. Shipping cost and time is the same from the UK. Either buy local or direct from the UK unless it is something special.

On the Series front, for things not normally available from the main LR suppliers, another good option is https://www.pangolin4x4.com
