Hi Jamie
Well done, nice to see this car in detail and for those pictures on the gallery. Will be a great help when I get round to doing 861443, hopefully after I've finished a 51 I'm doing at present.

Hi Malcolm
Was hoping somebody out there might find them useful ! Funnily enough I'm working on a 51 as well - my first LR bought 40 years ago and off the road for 30.

Added some bulkhead photos from 717.  860162s bulkhead being rebuilt but I have 717s bulkhead to help with certain detail and dimension checks. I've got to get it down off the shelf shortly to take some sharper and closer photos.

The steel overhead rail rests on the rear floor and in the front cross-member. The gearbox cross-member is kaput so it's taken up the weight and the stress off the chassis, especially when moving it up and down ramps and over kerbs. Must have had to move it 15 times in the past 37 years !

Jamie.
