2016 Defender 130 Puma 2.2 HCPU Santorini Black

Quick update

She has brakes...
Small amount of welding to offside bulkhead pillar. Not sure how to finish this paintwise as rest of vehicle original....
She has rebuilt swivels and now steers
Got engine running for 25 mins and even the rad holds water Bow down
Freed off clutch and for the first time since 1981 is moved around under its own power! That was on Christmas Eve Thumbs Up

Ordered a new wiring loom as some/most/all of wires have rodent damage. Autosparks may be the biggest delay we have encountered so far sadly..... 1951 80" S1

2016 Defender 130 Puma 2.2 HCPU Santorini Black

Hi,

Not going to paint the whole thing, it's just what to do with the little areas of welding. More obvious on the bulkhead as you can see.

Update : Welding done. Swivels and brakes rebuilt. Fuel tank refurbished and new SU pump fitted. Autosparks loom ordered but still 4 weeks left to wait until it arrives. Brake master cylinder away getting re sleeved. Tyres ordered, not going down the Avon route (sorry to the rivet counters but £200 a corner??!) popped the hood on to see how she looked Bow down

Question, wiper motor looks period correct to me as a Lucas one? Going to remove and refurbish but some are saying looks nothing like an original? 1951 80" S1
1958 88" S2

Great progress Thumbs Up

Painfully dear the Avon’s.... Big Cry

The wiper is nearly correct!
They use the Lucas CWX usually, which yours is but has a different shaped body where the switch is.
It’s probably from an MG or similar period classic.

Perfectly acceptable though, although some will say not!
Wipers were an option at that time, so people put anything on them.
You will find every old Lucas part will have a date stamp, eg 4.54 being April 1954,
This will be on fuse box, regulator, Dynamo, starter, wiper, etc

Keep up the good work Thumbs Up 80" 80" 86" 88" 90"

Yes would agree with Ian on the wiper motor, I have seen quite a few on classic MG's. and as Ian says perfectly acceptable unless you are an ultra rivet counter Rolling Eyes 2015 Defender 90 SW / 1985 factory V8 Ninety
