Impressive build quality

Is this anyone on here?

I'm impressed by the build quality. I love to see a Defender that has so much attention to detail put into it. Nice job! GLWS

Umm... Are we looking at the same truck? I'm sure the build quality is great but those wheels and color ruin it for me....

Certainly looks well done, but either way, that for sale ad would convince me to buy pretty much anything.

Why is the Panhard rod rubbing on the diff casing?

Thanks gents. It was 3.5 years in the making and now thrown into the crucible of an online auction.

Fingers crossed for a decent payout. I'm anticipating that I will have made about $6.57/hour with all the time I have into it.

It isn't. That's a reflection in the pic.

A lot of the people wanting high dollar Defenders are looking for exactly that style, so it's definitely targeted sell.



Seller- as a tip, most people looking at restored trucks want to see at least 500+ miles on the restoration. 5 miles won't display most potential issues that will possibly arise after the rebuild.

Made by 'Kahn' design. He is actually a Khan, like me not Kahn. A British Pakistani trying to make his last name sound German to be more marketable, all of his designs suck in my opinion.

Powdercoated frame? Puma hood on a V8? A NAS truck but the speedometer is zeroed out?

No thanks.

How did you get the 48 spline steering wheel to work on a 36 spline column?

I used an ROW column. I had both set ups at my disposal and opted for the sleeker ROW wheel.

Why on earth did you get rid of the regular air box? No rear cage or top?

I love it. My build is nearing completion. One of my sticking points is the R380 trans tunnel made of fiberglass. I hate the finish on it. Your looks so much better. Did you do something to it?

Also, where is the box that manages the electronics?
