Quick one this evening…..
After a few weeks hoarding parts in the back of the 110, it was time to unpack the new Rocky Mountain Door Tops.
These have become quite sought of the last few months whilst the UK distributor changed hands. Originating in Canada (and manufactured by the same folks who made the new suspension), they are of exceptional quality and will certainly outlast cheaper variants on the market.
They aren’t cheap but having had a set on a Series 3 previously I’d rather pay the money than have to rivet them back together in a few years. They don’t rattle, rust and actually keep rain water out.
They arrived in naked aluminium so I will need to deglaze them, prime, paint and put back together.
To accompany the funky new door tops and delivered last week from Ashtree Land Restorations were the 3 new doors. Again, these aren’t the cheapest on the market but are very good quality.
The steel frames are fully galvanised before the aluminium skin is bonded on the frame, this eliminates rusting of the steel frame (as its galvanised) but also eliminates bi-metalic corrosion occurring between the steel and aluminium
