interchangeablilty IIA and Defender?

I know hinges and such are a straight swap, what about Bumpers and seats? I have a new galvy rear to put on, but thinking about options for the front.

Seats can. Bumpers are a different mounting style.

But doesn't a series front bumper protrude further forward than a defender one? Meaning a defender one may be too close to the body?

I just remember putting a 109 bumper on Janey and it stuck out too far. Looked weird. Maybe they had variations for acessories or something?

I think you are all mistaken as I have seen numerous rebuilt 1967 Defenders for sale.

Sorry, couldn't resist

Are you implying we American's don't have the same innate skill the British have for making rebuilt trucks look like brand new?

IMO the galvanized series bumper looks great on a defender.

I actually have my front bumper off my defender right now and I'm pretty sure a series bumper down in the basement somewhere, so maybe I'll do a comparison as well. But likely not before the weekend.

thanks for the info, just considering options. I like what Firemanshort has on his but he built that himself. Ike has good looking stuff as well, probably going that route.
