83' 110 Build (Sourcing Parts- Tub/Seat Box)

Starting the planning stages of my restoration. Recently purchased 1983 Land Rover 110 3.5 V8. At first assessment I plan on replacing the rear tub, seatbox, floor boards, bulkhead, right and left wings, update V8, 2007+ doors.

At this point I am heavily researching parts. Does anyone have recommendations on full rear tub replacement, as well full seat box replacements? Would there be any quality vendors that sell these?

Why do you feel the need to replace the seat box?
We need pics of what you've got.
YRM make some replacement parts.

After restoring a few vehicles (74 bronco, 68 mustang, 69 442 etc), I have learned that in most instances it's much cheaper and efficient to replace bulk parts if there is a lot of visible rust already. After getting the vehicle chemically stripped, I want to be prepared to handle the repairs.

I appreciate the links. I have seen the YRM website and consider it an option.

It looks like between RN, Safari, RDS I should have everything I need.

Thank you
