No same guy owns both per mike.

WOW, must be nice to own two ECR BR110s!! I had a feeling the same person owned both. Most of us would like to just see one in person...

The owner of BR110 #2 is considering a Tdi swap, so you may see that happen if he goes for it.

Yup, same guy now owns #1 and #3. We had to make the trucks identical (well, as close as possible) other than color for him.

More spy shots.

Ever wonder what a Defender front door would look like with 10" more in it?

Had to show this off because I'm really proud of the shop for pulling it off. It was a team effort and to have a 10" longer door with the correct frame, correct one piece alloy skin and even the correct rounded areas around the door pocket gets praise from me (and I'm tough to get praise out of).

Its part of the Beach Runner 130 we are building but thought you all might want to see them before prime/paint in alpine white.

Have fun all... I'm off for my yearly 1 week vacation!

Awesome! That is why ECR is the best shop in the USA!

Some friends in town have their newly purchased 90 up in ME right now. The wife told my wife last night it was getting some goodies. I told my wife, next time she brings it up that real Defender owners work on their own trucks but to be perfectly honest I'm jealous! There's another ECR build in town and that thing looks and sounds sweeeet.

I was in Camden/Friendship/Rockland Maine last week for a kayaking trip and drove (by chance) right by the old ECR building - a 110 and a bunch of series trucks outside. So_much_porn, right there on the road. Even my friend (non-rover person) was floored when he saw that.

Unknown.
We only started keeping track of the NAS #s recently. Before that we only kept customer name records.

You should see the new shop.
The old shop just has my burnt out 110 and a few very rusted Series Rovers.
All the Defenders and the nice Series Rovers are down here in Rockland.

I know, I know - if I wasn't so exhausted from the trip, I would have stopped by. Next time.
