Technical Day - Series Restoration

29 July 2019 - Jonathan Bydendyk
It’s been a long time coming that we set up a Technical Day specifically catering to those interested in, or in the process of, restoring an early Land Rover Series. Owen Walton, a long time member of the club, was the obvious choice to run us through the process, history and, very importantly, how the vin numbers work. Owen is a walking encyclopaedia on all things Land Rover and specifically the early Series vehicles.

The venue was The Landy Net, just outside Krugerdorp, and was kindly offered to the club for the day by Warren & Storm, who also took us through the pitfalls of restoration, where to get parts and whether to use a commercial restoration service or to do it yourself.

Overall the day was a great success with more that 20 members in attendance and some very valuable knowledge taken from the talks and an immense appreciation for the effort that goes into keeping our beloved historical vehicles on the road.

Thanks you to Owen, Warren & Storm for given their time and sharing their knowledge with the club, we will be doing this again soon.
