It’s the turn of the Black­pool & Fylde Land Rover Club

Th­ese butyl seal pads are a Land Rover part and it’s vi­tal they are fit­ted across each flange gap to keep the wa­ter out.

The main seal is tapped on, start­ing at the hinge side bot­tom and tap­ping into the up­per cor­ners. The lower ends will be trimmed to length.

The load bed floor mat is placed in be­fore fit­ting the seals. This lower rub­ber real will be held be­tween the floor and the re­tainer plate (top).

The seal is cut just be­low the thresh­old seal. The stain­less steel re­tainer plate’s white pro­tec­tive plas­tic stays on un­til build is com­plete.

The in­te­rior door card and pull han­dle will be fit­ted later dur­ing the ve­hi­cle’s build. Oth­er­wise, the door is fin­ished, work­ing and locking.

The re­tainer plate is placed over the seal’s flange and self drilling/ tap­ping screws driven through both into the body sill.

With the door align­ment and seal­ing com­pleted, we can now lo­cate the door check link onto its pivot bracket on the body.
