Very nice!

Micheal sure knows how to rebuilt a defender. All of them are of very high quality!

Thanks. It's been a long process but worth it. I bought it off EBay in the Netherlands on a whim and it has come together over time. Would love to find a rebuilt LT85 in the Netherlands or here for a reasonable price.

As Doug said, size matters.

Just beautiful. Did you pony up the $7K+ for those LR Recaros? The only thing I'd do different is to leave the wheel spats unpainted.

Thanks. Michael has done an amazing job on the truck. The truck was pretty rough as a starting point but had a good original chassis. The Recaros were expensive and were originally intended for a different rig I was contemplating. I had them left over so decided to use them here. Oddly, I think they suit the truck.

Wheels are next, getting pulled and powdercoated.

Do yourself a favor and ditch those steelies and get a proper pair of either black or white Wolfs.

Ha! I am already the proud owner of a set of Wolfs painted red by ECR that are going to the powercoaters. These rims will be an extra set and will probably end up on one of the 110's.
