Just spent 4 yrs building this baby, time to play now
A credit to yea. Enjoy
Superb craftsmanship there, health to enjoy
I hope its got a 350hp cummin 6bt in it
Nifty looking weapon. Fine job.
You won't get stuck anyway. What with the tyres , not to mention winches
Now thats a machine.
Just dont crash it on the first bend!
Howd you fair with the DOE with the roll cage and winches etc, they can be pretty fussy ?
looks very smart , what engine have you got in ?
any more pics ?
No problem with DOE, had advice from a tester as we built it, had to get the polycarbonate quarter windows we made certified and stamped, stamp looks very like the one on camper windows , the logbook for that defender actually states body type unspecified/unknown as it was originally an ex British RAF Landrover, engine is still the 2.5 200tdi from a disco for now, pulls no bother and cruised along at 60mph happy as Larry. Going to change ratios of diffs next to gear down a bit cause the wheels are 35 inches tall.
Saw your creation in the flesh on Friday was up in athlone for a wedding and passed you parked up. Looked very well in real life!
Thanks, yep, was on way to Tullamore

What happened him to actually put down a price
Browsing DD last night and I see the new landrover defender, looks great albeit nothing like the old one ,price is off the charts however, over 80 k
About 20 years ago when I was a Land Rover enthusiast I fitted some huge mud terrains on alloys,I jumped in booted it up through the village and on the 1st bend I lost it and slid off the road into a field,fortunately for me it’s the only field with no fence as it’s sort of private grassland in front of a big public school,I learnt that day my mud terrains were useless in the wet.
At least they were handy for getting out of the field again anyway
