NEWS and current projects
We will endeavour to keep this new page updated, as we are extremely busy but would like to share the type of work we carry out.
August 2019 - nice to see this ex-coastguard Series 3 that the owner has been restoring himself over the past 2 years and we assisted with some of the parts. He has done a great job of restoring many of the original parts and the end result is a real head turner.
July 2019 - this awesome 101 belongs to one of our regular customers and has recently been purchased with the intended use as a camper. It came in for a major service and some rolling repairs.
July 2019 - an email photo from one of our customers who has just driven his 109 that we restored this year to southern France for the summer holidays. It is a Series 3 109 Station Wagon that we fully restored including V8 conversion and a full soft top, ideal for the sunny summer days.
June 2019 - the restoration of a Series 2a 88" that we started earlier this year is ready for the owner to collect.
May 2019 - we carried out a bodywork refurbishment on this 2005 Defender 110 Td5 including a full respray in Epsom Green metallic with new galvanised doors and many other upgrades.. Now ready for the owner to collect.
March 2019 - here is the restored Discovery on show at the NEC classic car show
January 2019 - nice to receive this email photo from the family of the Land Rover Series 1 that we restored in 2018 now back at home in Botswana enjoying regular use on safari trips.
November 2018 - this is the Defender 90 refurbishment that started in August 2018 (see below) when we stripped the bulkhead off and refurbished it including galvanising. The doors were replaced with new ones that benefit from galvanised frames/skins for longevity. After the refurbishment it now looks stunning in Corris Grey Metallic with black chequer plate, black Sawtooth alloy wheels, full LED light kit, KBX front grill kit and more!
November 2018 - This is the bulkhead for the Defender 110 that we started work on last month and now the bulkhead has been galvanised and sprayed before refitting
October 2018 - Defender 110 County Station Wagon has come to us for a galvanised bulkhead and galvanised doors plus some other improvements including sound proofing, audio upgrade and new roof lining.
October 2018 - this Land Rover Series 1 came to us from Botswana in a poor state and is now restored ready to be shipped back to be used regularly.
August 2018 - Land Rover Defender 90 300 Tdi County Station Wagon that we are refurbishing for the owner. A large amount of rust was found on the bulkhead so the owner has taken the wise decision to ask us to remove it so that it can be shot blasted then we can fully repair it and galvanise it before re-fitting. A full body refurbishment including new doors and body cappings is also on the 'to do' list with full respray.
August 2018 - this Land Rover Series 2a that we are restoring for the owner now has its reconditioned engine, gearbox and axles fitted plus the refurbished galvanised bulkhead that is sprayed Bronze Green before fitting the components. The whole Land Rover is being restored and we will have this complete in the next month or so.
July 2018 - we have been restoring this Land Rover Series 1 for the owner over the last few months, and it is now nearing completion. Once ready it will return to it's home in Botswana.
July 2018 - the early Discovery is now stripped to a rolling chassis and a bare bodyshell that will be specially blasted to reveal the full extent of the corrosion so that we can fully repair it.
July 2018 - the 1962 Land Rover Series 2a that we restored for the owner is now ready to collect. It has had a full mechanical overhaul, new galvanised chassis, refurbished galvanised bulkhead, interior plus bodywork refurbishment including respray.
June 2018 - our first major restoration on an early Discovery. The body will be removed for a full inspection, structural restoration along with a host of other work to preserve this icon.
June 2018 - Update on the Series 3 from Africa, we fitted new drivers footwell (LHD!) and spotted the side of the engine block was cracked from freezing so the engine is now being removed and the owner is making decision on what he would like us to do.
The reconditioned and tuned 3.5 V8 is going into the 110 that we are restoring.
June 2018 - Reconditioned engine being fitted into this Land Rover Series 2a that we have restored.
