Blue Discovery 2

Blue Discovery 2.

As an avid off-roader, this customer needed some extra protection for his beloved blue discovery 2.

What we did:- 

  • Supplied and fitted a heavy duty rear bumper.
  • Supplied and fitted tree sliders L&R.
  • Supplied and fitted Safari snorkel.
  • Fitted heavy duty winch bumper.

This vehicle is our customers favourite toy. Having used it off road a lot of times he had reached the decision to upgrade a few accessories to protect the vital parts of his baby! A Safari snorkel to ensure maximum air intake when wading, Tree sliders to protect the sills, heavy duty bumper on the rear and a heavy duty winch bumper to pull him out of sticky situations!

Defender 110 County.

Defender 110 County.

We purchased this Defender 110 County in 2014 with the intentions to make it a personal project. However, it grew interest and we knew we had to let it go! With plans to replace the chassis and various other components this 110 was ready for some TLC.

Body off, chassis out.Defender 110 CountyBody off, chassis ready to come out.

So we started by unbolting the body from the original chassis, leaving the engine, gearbox and axles in situ. Once the body was free we had the task of lifting it to allow the chassis to be removed.

 

After the chassis was free it was time to strip it down, taking the engine and gearbox away and also the axles to be re-fitted once the new chassis was in place. We also upgraded the original shock absorbers and suspension springs.

   

The final touches :- With the new chassis in place, all we needed to do was fit the engine and gear box and re-build the vehicle.

The body had seen better days with patches of white aerosol spray paint dotted around. A quick wipe with thinners and a colour match touch up and it was ready for collection!

 

What we did :-  Replaced original chassis with new galvanised chassis.

Upgraded suspension assembly with new shock absorbers and springs. Lifting its spirits.

Replaced clutch assembly.

Touched up body work to keep original colour looking fresh.

Result :- One stunning 110 County, One happy customer. Thumbs up!

Orange Defender 110

Orange Defender 110.


A much looked after orange Defender 110 which sadly was showing signs of a long lived life. Mechanically sound, it just needed that extra bit of TLC to regain its former glory.

As you can see below, we had to strip back a lot of orange layers to ensure a nice, crisp and even finish to the paintwork.

Once an even surface was obtained we went ahead with the paint! A vibrant orange to match the original swatch on the sides and new doors and also a covering of tough Raptor coating on the roof and wheel arches, giving this much beloved vehicle a brand new lease of life!


The finished vehicle. We are very proud of what we achieved and the owner was over-joyed. A sturdy utility vehicle, ready for what the lanes have to offer!!

What we provided :-

  • 4x Genuine Land Rover doors.
  • All sides and new doors re-sprayed with original orange swatch.
  • Tough raptor coating on the roof and wheel arches.

A joy to work on and a pleasure to see a classic vehicle restored.
