Description for Land Rover Defender 1991

Here we have a full nut and bolt restoration of a 1991 Land Rover Defender 90.
It was originally purchased five years ago as a standard ‘91 Defender hard top and has been on the road in use for the past 2 years.
It was completely stripped and a new chassis purchased, which was then mordant T solution washed, and acid etched primed with 3 coats of primer and then four coats of gloss black paint.
Original axles were deemed unusable so they were swapped for a 300 TDI Discovery; these were then stripped back. All internals were renewed, including new CV's, bearings, and seals. Flanges on the front Axles were shot blasted, primed and painted. These axles were fitted with new brake discs and pads the callipers were stripped, cleaned, and re-built with stainless pistons and then painted in Ford orange. Axles were then fitted to the chassis with reconditioned suspension arms and a full set of orange poly bushes.
Original engine was stripped down and cleaned. The block was painted in Ford orange. New core plugs fitted and engine was given a thorough overhaul with all new seals and gaskets. Both the original engine and gearbox have matching numbers.
Also had a new cam belt at 108k miles. A new Borg and Beck heavy-duty clutch with heavy-duty release arm. Gearbox was taken to Ashcroft Transmissions and reconditioned along with transfer box. Flanges and handbrake drum were painted in Ford orange. The whole assembly was then fitted to the chassis via new heavy-duty engine mounting bushes.
Two new prop shafts were fitted with new UJ's. Bulkhead was stripped back of all wiring and components and then extensively repaired with new foot wells, bulkhead corners, vent panels, and rubbed back primed and painted in Ford Electric Orange. Bulkhead was then fitted to the rolling chassis and refitted with a reconditioned full wiring harness all associated components for wiring and dash were cleaned repaired and painted where necessary and then refitted.
The exhaust was designed to look like a series 1. It’s also got a stabilising steel rod to ensure that it doesn’t rattle within the fender. It’s a side exit exhaust.
A new break and clutch master cylinder were fitted to the pedal boxes that were then fitted to the bulkhead with new sealing gaskets. Heater box was fitted with a reconditioned heater matrix. Heater box was cleaned painted and fitted to bulkhead with new ducting seals to help with airflow. Dashboard was fitted with a LED lamp upgrade for bright gauges. Also a raptor dash console fitted with switches: a turbo boost gauge/oil pressure/and oil temp to keep an eye on all the engine. A Kenwood head unit was fitted that has built in sat nav and ipod connection. Brand new Masai tinted glass all around. Acoustic panelling has been fitted to the roof to reduce acoustic noise from the aluminium body. Brand new tyres and wheels. The tyres are Cooper Discoverer 265 75/16. New alternator and water pump. Also, both front doors were replaced with brand new galvanised steel doors and then the doors were fitted with parachute handles.
It also comes with two sets of keys, a reversing LED spotlight. New tow bar and electrics. New leather seats. The driver’s side is fully electric.
There were stainless steel nuts and bolts on all the hinges and brackets. Alloy mounts were added to the front screen.
