    I bought this as a fixer upper. I never worked on Defenders before, restored Triumphs (so yes I like a challenge and rusted bolts!) Should have took some pics when I got it in 2011.

    It was very tatty, rusted winch on front white powder n silver chq plate sides and happy shopper side bar steps things made of rust and black bubble paint!

    So its a bit of a triggers broom now, since I got it I have fitted :
    • TerraF Suspension, Turrets, Springs and Dampers (no lift)
    • TerraF steering arms,
    • Converted to ventilated brakes all round,
    • Both props
    • Wheel bearings
    • Various oil seals
    • Wolf Wheels with 7.5 16 michelin XZL
    • LED conversion
    • Black Chq Plate
    • Bumper
    • Tow bar
    • Heated Screen
    • Heated Seats
    • LR Safari Spots and A Bar


    Next; Clutch, DM Flywheel and Suspension A Frame,

    Its Epsom Green had I found some white wolf wheels (and put 7.5 ZXL Mich) which match the white roof, but I am thinking of painting the roof and wheels black, any suggestions?

    FullSizeRender.jpg Got to love the LEDS

    LED headlamps, really impressed, DRL also blink amber with indicators which is a bonus!
    Popped some led bulbs into the stock spots, again impressed.
    Had the light bars for a while they are superb, portable daylight on tap, much needed where i live. FullSizeRender-1.jpg

    here is why I had to fit a new cam and rocker shaft and rollers, roller pin had popped out and damaged cam, lucky i caught it in time, only noticed when injector seals were being replaced.You can see the hardening and scoring it had done to the cam, metal shavings not ideal floating around in engine!

    Looking good man! Loving the portable daylight! Eventually mine will go on.....

    Blue lit dash looks quite nice, not sure I could live with it tho, bright blue light tends to mess with me eyes! :oops:

    Know what you mean, but the binnacle light holes are designed for 360 light from an incandescent bulb, so with the LEDs being straight ahead only, they not as bright as i expected so at night is fine, could always fit a Var Resistor dimmer I suppose, had a few leds around so gave it a go.

    Have to say the portable daylight is unreal, and it is just that .

    So not really a beam as such, so I bought two different types.
    The bar is split into three sections inside, so you can choose any combination you want i went for Flood-Spot-Flood on the top bar and Flood-Flood-Flood on bottom.
    Found some handy mounts that clamp around bull bar to fit, used a relay as they pull 126 Watts each, and used a front fog LR switch so its neat inside. I and I am very pleased with them, had the headlights for a year now no complaints.

    Sad to say do not really need the LR spot safari lights anymore, they are not even wired up at mo even thought I did fit LED bulbs.
    In two minds, cant decide to sell them or not I guess I like the look of them sad I know!
