I like them but do not sport one.

Maybe someone will start a puma bonnet club next.

Not my taste-customer truck/build. Puma bonnet, kbx grill and surrounds, all 5 new doors, Three rows of forward facing Exmoor trim leather seats, lhd conversion, td5 dash, td5 main and body looms, all new lights, ac, central locking on all 5 doors, power windows on front doors, heated front seats with adjustable lumbar. Borla stainless exhaust

Drivetrain is 4.2 14cux and auto setup (used Ashcroft center console) out of classic lwb. When it leaves me (hopefully this week) its going to a body shop where it will be painted java black, get saw tooth alloys, and custom carpeting.

All on what was a 1983 110 with Toyota 3b diesel grafted onto a lt95. The only remnants of the original truck are the chassis, bulkhead, front wings, floors,seat box, rear tub and roof, and of course the brake booster. Everything else is new.

High 50's as it leaves for paint. That includes the purchased 110 that was delivered to me, and a classic lwb and the disassembly of both,the parts bought, and approximately 250 hours of my time.

This. It's why a nicely restored and upgraded 110 cost $75K+ vs. one that just came off the boat for $20K. The average first time ebay Defender buyer doesn't get this concept. I'd love to see more pics of this when it's done Doug. Nice work.

My previous supercharged NAS D90 would have benefited from one as well. Out here they are frequently stolen about as often as older Defenders are stolen, so very often haha!

To be clear, the cost of the parts bought (which does not include any drivetrain bits) exceed the cost of the original 110 that was delivered to me. If you price out the exmoor bits in their premium black leather alone, you are into 5 figures.
Add a new Td5 lhd dash, all new wiring harness's, Elite lhd a/c kit etc, electric window regulators, door panels without window crank holes, 5 central locking actuators and factory harness etc. None of it cheap,or fun to install. The trucks that are being built in that price range are often criticized here because of what they cost. I'll be the first to tell you it can't be done for less. That said,none of these are parts that an off roading enthusiast would choose to buy.

The aftermarket parts are extreme; I agree 100%. You start pricing out an interior and you're looking at $15k; and that's just for a 90; a 110 is easily double. It adds up quickly for sure
