Update

Well its all been a bit quiet the last couple of weeks between the injury and holidays so here is where we are up to.

Car 1 – hasn’t really changed since the engine was put in, busy looking for a clutch and other parts.

Car 2 – hasn’t changed since the engine and gearbox were refitted but will soon be getting back in to the swing and looking to put in brake lines, fuel lines and tank. Then bolt the bulkhead in to position. We will also be moving on to make the rear window sections for the body work over the next couple of weeks, then we can start spraying up the parts ready to go back on.

Car 3 – this car is now mostly dismantled and the engine and gearbox up for sale.

Car 4 – After repairing the rear diff pan, a couple of weeks ago after about an hours trip one of the core plugs decided to fail. it was replaced and again a couple of weeks later blew out again. Decision was made to replace the head gasket so this weekend was spent stripping it down, tonight we will fit the new gasket and bolt it all up again. Hopefully that will sort the issues out.

New addition to the group!

One of the other friends got a bit of the land rover bug after owning a discovery for a little while so he has now invested in a Series 3 pickup truck which is very nice, needs a little bit of work but its a runner for now.

Opening The Gates

Well this is the first post on our blog where we hope to document the story of our Land Rover rebuilds.

At present we have plans for working on two cars

  1. 1966 Series 2 88″
  2. 1984 Ninety

Both cars are in need of new chassis and the Series is in need of a little bit more than that.
