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.
