LAND ROVER DEFENDER 90 'FIRE'
Witness the remarkable transformation of this once tired and aged Defender, originally a 1989 2.5 Non-Turbo Diesel 90 SWB, now revitalized with a powerful 300tdi engine upgrade. The extensive refurbishment reflects the owner's continuous pursuit of enhancements, resulting in a Defender that is barely recognizable from its original state.
Initiating the overhaul, the Defender underwent a comprehensive restoration process, starting with a full gloss black re-spray. However, addressing serious corrosion on the driver's A-pillar took precedence. Images document the removal of the old pillar and the precise welding of the new one, emphasizing our commitment to eradicating corrosion rather than merely concealing it. A chequer plate was strategically added before the repaint for seamless color coding.
Noteworthy upgrades include a new grill and front DRL bumper, along with LED exterior lighting at both ends. The customer's evolving vision led to additional enhancements like new doors and a Burnt Pearl Orange roof, providing a captivating interior accent. Completing the exterior overhaul are alloy wheel upgrades, wheel spacers, and high-performance All-Terrain tires.
Turning attention to the interior, the customer selected a tan vinyl finish from a range of swatches. The transformation is evident in the pictures, showcasing the striking contrast between the old, worn interior and the bespoke 'one-off' tan interior. The original Land Rover seats were meticulously stripped, re-padded, and re-trimmed, extending the new finish to the roof lining, dashboard, and door cards. To achieve a polished look, a complete 90 carpet set was installed, encompassing the front and rear areas, including carpeted interior van side panels.
