Well a bit of an update for everyone....
The plan was to be driving the Land Rover for its MOT tomorrow morning but unfortunately that isn't going to happen!.. I have got quite a lot done over the last couple of weekends and I've been at the shed every night this past week but unfortunately it is still not ready!..
One of the first jobs I tackled during the week was to fit my front side repeaters. They are the later type with clear lenses so I had to cut the correct hole into the wings which was quite laborious however worth the effort.
Once the side repeaters were in place I could tidy up the front wiring and fit the front wheel arch extension spat.
And the off side...
I fitted the rear door catch.. Still not shutting as nicely as I would like so need the adjustment is on the to do list..
The biggest job of the week was to hang my side doors.. This turned into a much bigger job than I had anticipated due to alignment issues..
The main problem I have encountered was the front doors not hanging true.. After a lot of investigating it seemed that my bulkhead wasn't sitting at the correct angle. This was always going to be a possible problem when rebuilding a LR from chassis up so I was being pretty optimistic hoping I wasnt going to have to re allign. Anyway after loosening alot of bolts I was hoping not to touch again I got the ratchet straps out and hey presto things seem a lot better!..
The rear doors lined up without much issue which was handy!..
Another problem I encountered this week was that I seemed to have 3 hinges for the OSR and only one for the NSR which meant to get my doors hung I had to go out and buy a new hinge. The hinge is currently not painted so thats another job to add to the list!
Whilst struggling with door alignment I took a break and did some satisfying jobs like putting my new number plates and LR badges on!
Anyway after all the door alignment was sorted...
Another satisfying job I managed to get half done was to put my various bits of chequer plate on..
Another job I tackled was to get the spare wheel carrier in place..
Thats about where I am.. There are a couple of small jobs to get sorted before MOT time which will hopefully be later this week if I can put some evenings in.. Wish me luck!.. I'm going to need it!
