Description for Land Rover Defender 1985

Very original county station wagon. Ideal for classic car collector.

Like many classic Land Rovers the chassis was starting to show its age so we have carried out a frame off restoration on this Defender and then left the original body work and interior intact.

Even thoughit would have been far easier and cheaper to replace the chassis with a galvanised chassis we decided not to as it is a matching chassis/Vin number/ original enginevehicle.

It has had uprated LRI and Bilstein suspension set up along with a rear suspension anti roll/ sway bar to make create a far superior driving experience along with a full stainless steel exhaust system. These changes are reversible should a purist prefer to change it back to factory original.

Work carried out:

-Remove body from chassis for chassis work / refitting of body after chassis work

-Shot blast chassis, radius arms, axles and chassis mounting brackets

- Repair chassis corrosion, including replacement:- Rear spring mounts, bulkhead out riggers, bump stop mountings, Rear Anti roll bar mounts, station wagon body crossmember and repair sections of main chassis rails and body brackets

-Etch prime and paint chassis in satin black 2k top coat

-Etch prime and paint Axles, radius arms and suspension brackets

-Remove suspension bushes and refit with supplied super-pro bushes

-Strip clean / paint swivel housing and clean and paint rear brakes

-Adjust Swivel bearings. Replace front brake discs, pads & callipers. Replace rear brake shoes & brake cylinders.

-Replaced all suspension and all body mounting bolts and some chassis

-Replace engine camshaft using 3.9 camshaft, new followers, timing chain & sprockets.

-Repair to front to rear wiring harness

-Replace Faulty Head Light Switch

-Replace exhaust system with Double S stainless system including tubular manifolds

-Replaced 1x track rod end 1x drag link end and drop arm boot.

-Replace faulty alternator

-Replace Battery
