JGS4x4 restoration project – lets bring Mabel back to life!

Let me start today by referring you all to a post we wrote a while back “The reality of a restoration dream!”  The first line reads…

We have all had the dream…to buy an old Land Rover that has been asleep in a barn for many years, tow it home and over a few months (years even), bring it back to life.

Yes, we too have had that dream! JGS4X4 have taken the plunge and embarked on new a restoration project – Take a look at this little beauty!

Meet Mabel!

She’s a 1963 Series 2a Land Rover, and as you can see she needs a lot of work!  Whilst towing her home the true reality of the job at hand began to hit us, and yes, obviously we realise this is NOT a short term project.  We have decided to share the ‘ups and downs’ and stories of ‘Mabel’s’ restoration, and maybe even ask for some advice!

As JGS4x4 has a warehouse full of parts and spares this should make our job a little easier than normal.  We are determined that you will not see an advert from use saying “All the hard work is done, just needs finishing – come and take it off our hands”!  We will not be broken.

JGS4X4 will be posting blogs, images, video’s as we bring Mabel back to life! So why not follow Mabel’s story here an on Facebook and Twitter,

We’ll keep you posted – Let the adventure begin!

Do you have any advice for JGS4X4 as we start our restoration?  Let us know in the comments below
