HAVE IT YOUR WAY Rebuild - Enhance - Refurb

Right from the outset back in 1988 our journey started with the notion of taking a tired old Land Rover and driving it into the farm workshop, getting it into bits, rebuilding with a fresh coat of marine blue mixed in with a brighter white for wheels and roof to give it a sharper fresher look. Every one of those series LRs received similar treatment. At the time I did not realise that I would be doing the same to the modern era Defender, nearly 30 years later. Taking their drab factory look and adding a mix of classic colours out of the Land Rover parts bin to create what we have done so well since 2007, to our Classic Retro Defender hard tops, wagons and soft tops. Back in 2007 two things happed, the arrival of the 6 speed puma Defenders driven by Ford power, resulting in quieter easier to drive, more car like Defenders which instantly gave a far wider appeal. Concurrently after enjoying many years of being the one specialist LR Defender dealer who always stocked and refurbished plenty of rare limited edition Defenders such as the heritage, 50th V8 and tomb raider editions, the clock had been ticking and due to ageing deteriorating condition it was becoming harder to bring them into our inventory, get them looking right for sale once again. So we started to take new 2007 Defenders on and add our Retro classic heritage looks, together with a range of Sport wagons based around black and grey 90 and 110s. Often the Sport Wagon variants enjoyed lots of Diesel tuning, suspension and wheel upgrades. Some enjoyed a run of 3.2 TDci Diesel and 5.0 V8 Mustang installs for rapid performance that became the cornerstones of what we do today. Experience always tells.
