All the plastic bits and pieces for the Td5 type dash. Plastic wheel arch flares/eyebrows in the matte black finish. Side and rear window plastic trim surrounds as mentioned by others, esp for 110 county station wagons.

Makes me wonder what they plan to do with all Defender press tool, production line equipment etc.

Someone will still make defenders under license .. It won't get thrown away.

Which version? I have at least two types that were fitted to late SI and SII and SIIa. The wood grain ones are cool.

I would skip the radiator, intercooler, expansion tank and the rest of it. Just call up TdiGuy and get as much AliSport stuff from him as you can - trust me on this. You will have bad ass, sexy stuff in your engine bay instead of some roached out shit from SA struggling to keep your motor cool. Just sayin'.
