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!
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.
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
