Club of the Month
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.
