The rebuild of our 1959 Jensen 541R has continued recently with classic car technician Rob making and fitting the front floors. The boot floor rear panel was fabricated before being bolted and riveted into place. The front hubs were also assembled and installed.
Rob went on to assemble and fit the rear brakes and hubs. The steering rack was put on and the boot lid was fitted. The wiring is progressing well and the right-hand front wheel arch was fitted too.
To allow the gearbox to be removed and replaced from inside the car, without the need to remove the engine, Rob made some modifications to the bulkhead.
As you can see from the images below, things are really starting to take shape on our 541R.
