At some point in the past, LGL had the top of the drivers side wing cut open to allow access to the clutch master cylinder.
The workshop manual suggest that if the clutch master cylinder needs to be accessed, the whole wing needs to be removed so it’s not unusual to see the top of the wing cut back.
Later models (with a servo on the brake master) was sculpted to allow the servo to fit and better access to the clutch master.
I wasn’t that fussed about this rather savage enhancement of the wing top as it can only be seen when the bonnet is opened but it did allow rain water to drip down into the foot well.
As any Land Rover owner will know, having water leak into the vehicle is all part of the… charm but cold water dripping into the footwell leads to cold feet and steamier windows.
I had previously expertly repurposed an old chopping board (it was rubbish at being a chopping board) to close the gap. Not surprisingly, this didn’t last that long but it did stop water ingress to the drivers footwell.
A similar more permanent, removable solution was needed. On on…
