I’ve not been updating this site cos I’ve been working on the Land Rover so much! I’ve lost count of all the stages that it’s gone through, but I’m hoping this is the last one.
All being well, I could get the work done before the end of November and in time for a tax disc in December. However, a 2 week holiday in December makes that a little uneconomical. We’ll see… economics vs eagerness.
Things that have been done so far…
Refurbished and refitted dashboard
Custom chassis wiring management system (ie waterproof tubes)
New wiring loom front, middle and back.
New light, front and back.
New instrument panel
Refurbished front wing mounting points.
Scratch fabricated aluminium reinforcement behind front lights
Scratch fabricated aluminium reinforcement at wing mounting points
New mud shields, and snazzy drainage system between shields and footwell devised by Bill
New windscreen seals
Renovated heater and blower system
Refurbished handbrake drum, brakes and mechanism
New front doors, top and bottom.
Painted front and rear doors
New and sealed fuel tank
Removal of old rear seats, refurbishment of mounting points
Fitment of rear storage compartment and gas struts on lid
Drain and replace all oils and fluids
Regrease all grease points
Removal of redundant and broken choke cable, modification of ignition barrel to accept modern choke cable.
Design and fitting of interior rear shelf.
A thorough wash and polish
Things that remain to be done for an MOT.
Fitting of new seats
Replace N/S rear axle stub
Replace all drive flange bolts and gaskets
Things that I’d like to get done very soon
