To prepare for our 1953 Land Rover Series 1 to be delivered to its new owner, classic car technician Jonn has assembled the hard top roof, bolted up the panels and removed the roof for full assembly.
He then fitted the seals between the panels and the edges before measuring up and cutting and glueing all door seals in position. Jonn then stripped and fit the new nearside wheel cylinder as well as bleeding and adjusting it. He then refitted the wheel and torqued it up.
The assembled roof was then fitted to the Land Rover and the fixings and door top halves were secured. Rear door hinges were fitted before the rear door and tailgate were put on the vehicle too.
Jonn fitted grommets to the holes in the roof and sides before he painted the exposed new bolts in the panels in cream to match the roof.
The PDI was carried out and, once Jonn is happy with the road test, our Series 1 will be ready to leave the workshop.
This morning was the live draw of our 1953 Land Rover Series 1, when Colin Murray was randomly selected as the lucky winner, with ticket number 2158.
Our Land Rover will soon be heading off to its new home in Scotland where it will no doubt be very comfortable in the North of the UK.
The doors of our 1953 Land Rover Series 1, which is currently live on Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, have been in the paintshop with technician Chris.
He has been rubbing the doors down before masking them up ready for epoxy primer to be applied. Once this was done, Chris painted the doors a matching green.
Our 1953 Land Rover Series 1 has had its hard top fitted by classic car technician Jonn and workshop manager.
If you thought it looked cool without a roof on, or with its canvas roof, the hard top certainly looks equally as appealing (if not even better).
You can now enter to win our 1953 Land Rover Series 1 through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

Classic car technician Jonn has been checking over our 1953 Land Rover Series 1. During his initial inspection, Jonn checked and topped up the gearbox level, as well as fitting the canvas roof that comes with the Land Rover.
Jonn also cleaned and unblocked the axle breather before freeing and lubricating the sticky wheel cylinders. A new washer pump and pipe were fitted too.
Once Jonn is happy with our Series 1 Land Rover, it will be available to win through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.
One of the purchases made at auction this week was our 1953 Land Rover Series 1. Once it has gone through its workshop inspection, it will go on to be offered as a prize through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.
This particular Series I 86’’ is presented in the ever-popular Green and was subject to a full restoration between June 2016 and July 2017. It was restored by Fisher Restoration at a cost of more than £30,000.
As you can see from the images below, this is a fantastic-looking Land Rover and it will make its lucky new owner (whoever that may be) very happy.
