The new wiring harness has been installed. This unit is manufactured by Autosparks. The early 80s trucks have a very simple straightforward wiring harness but unfortunately had glass fuses that would corrode and cause intermittent electrical problems. This new harness has the later style blade fuses but is still a nice simple harness.
Genuine Land Rover sliding windows have been installed which help give the interior a light airy feel and extra ventilation on hot days compared to the original van like interior.
This drilled rear door latch handle is a slight departure from the original but it is a genuine Land Rover unit.
