Back in January this year, I fitted the roof in the garage, knowing that I wouldn’t be able to drive it out. It proved useful in ensuring everything lined up and the rear door did indeed fit… all this could be done of the comfort of the heated garage and not in the freezing cold.
Today though… the roof was installed on the drive, in glorious spring sunshine, everything still lines up… and the rear door fits a bit better than it did.
Not much to say here…. the rear door was refitted and thanks to the bending exercise last week, fits better against the seals. To be honest, it could do with another session under the jack but that will have to wait for a while.
Seat Belts and Trim
The retro fitted seat belt retainers need to be bolted through the steel channel of the roof. This provides much of the mechanical restraint. Once the retainers are in place, the trim panels can be clipped into place.
There is still an entire roof trim to be fitted but thats yet to be ordered… mainly down to the eye watering cost but it’s clear LGL can’t cant stay dressed only in Dynamat. Once fitted, the interior should look pretty good I think.
LGL… Back in one piece…
Work started on the project on 7th November 2015 and aside from a few outstanding snagging items, we can say it was all back together again on 7th April 2018…
Exactly 2 years, 5 months.
But the storey isn’t over yet….
UPDATE 8th April 2018…
By comparison, this is where things stood on the same weekend in 2017…
