A 2017 Update

Well as the blog hasn’t been updated in a while, I thought I would take some time and post an update.

Jordan

1966 Series 2:

The car was sold the tail end of 2016 as an unfinished project.  progress stalled on the car and never really got going again.

2006 Disco 3

The car is still going, recently had a handbrake module replaced.  Another repair carried out by land rover was to resolve a recall issue of oil in the brake system.  This had already been done once but the issue re occurred, so they eventually sorted it again.

Disco 2

Since selling the Series 2 Jordan has also purchased a Disco 2 4 ltr V8.  Initially it was sold as the previous owner had put diesel in the tank and tried to start it so some basic work was carried out the car is now taxed and tested and back on the road.

Ian

1983 Ninety

Following a change of job and moving away in May 2016 I don’t have day to day involvement with my car any more, but it is still going driven by my dad on a daily basis.

At the end of October 2016 we made a small addition to the car to allow us to sleep inside it while going to watch Wales Rally GB, this involved some support bars and sheets of marine ply.  Made for a very handy night out kept out of the elements, will post some photos of this later.

Other issues at the moment with the car is the Wipac LED side lights keep blowing fuses up to 15A so more investigation is required.

1986 110

No change on this yet the car is still as it was when picked up.

Disco 1

Still owned but currently not used.

2001 Disco 2

The car previously owned by Jordan is now mainly used for spare parts.

Disco 2

A TD5 Auto car which has some off road modifications such as tyres bumpers, LED light bar.

Kelsey & Pete

2006 90 TD5

Kelsey and Pete still use this car, recent additions of some 5 bar tread plate, apart from that the car is mostly used on road.

Tom

1993 90 300TDi

Following the rebuild not heard of any more issues with the car, still see it driving around.

Car 4 : Update on rebuild

Well this is a quick update on progress of car 4’s rebuild, there has been so much done to be documented fully.

Front axles rebuilt fully

Chassis rubbed down, repaired & painted

Front & Rear springs replaced with parabolic springs & new shocks fitted

Bulkhead – stripped, repaired, primed, painted, rebuilt & refitted

Front Grill panel – stripped, repaired, primed, painted and refitted

Engine – refurbished, refitted and running.

New exhaust system fitted

Wings & bonnet have been rubbed down primed, painted and fitted

Hopefully we will get a more detailed update with photos soon.

UPDATE:

Over the weekend we did enough work that the engine now fires up using the key and the car has had a short drive around the garden to give it a little test and move around under the car port.

Most of the front electricals have been sorted now.  Side, Dipped, Main and indicator lamps all work, along with the horn.  so left to wire is the washer pump and heater motor.  A rear chassis loom has also been made and will be plugged in tonight and tested for the rear lights.  The next big step is getting the panels all lined up before they get painted and any holes than need drilling can be put in.
