If we take a moment to compare our Series 3 with the uber high tech Land Rover models in today’s showrooms, it’s unlikely that the miles of wiring and electronics inside a Velar, Disco, or even the New Defender would fit in a single bucket. ;)
Alec disconnected each connector one-by-one, including the dashboard instruments, rear lights, indicators, cabin lights, and windshield wipers and gathered the mangled spaghetti of wires into a black plastic bucket.
One guarantee for the restoration will be that we give the wires a final rest and replace them with a fresh string.
The plastic dashboard came off with the removal of the final bolt attachment to the bulkhead.
Next up the bulkhead itself will need to come off, as we continue to dismantle our legend.
