Right way to restore a Land Rover Defender
You buy an old Land Rover that has been asleep in a junkyard/rubber estate/town council warehouse for a few years, tow it to your preferred workshop and, over a few months, you bring it back to life.
Every year there must be hundreds of old Land Rovers dug up from their last resting place and transported to a new home and a new life. Some are done very well and hmmmmmm so others look like a mix match of ideas.
So how do you avoid getting it wrong? There are lots of things you need to consider before taking on a project. Here are some issues to consider.
- Do you have the time and money to do the restoration?
- Do you have and idea of what the final look will be like?
- Do you have the right workshop to handle the work?
- Do you want to do it for a profit or for personal use?
- Do you need this new headache?
So let’s assume you are in a position to restore a Land Rover financially, have a final restored look in mind and stand a good chance of actually getting it finished and running. At this point the most important thing is to choose the right way to restore your project and have bystanders and friends respecting and admiring the final product. Let us share with you an idea that we think is respectable and stylish.
