I found dirt from either England or Africa or Iraq in mine.... no labels though.

That's very cool.

Seems an unusual place

This will expose me as an uneducated new Defender owner, but I had to look at mine to see if I had the eye bolts in the back seat floor board (I don't).
Heavy tie downs?
It will be cool to see ongoing pics, so I know what I'm in for!

For the experts......

Any recommended full interior cage(s) for a 5-Door 110 that can be used with a soft top AND sides and roof if desired? Also, what particular soft top manufacture AND can it be used with the cage or does it need to have custom sticks/hoop etc....

I appreciate any thoughts and/or direction.

There isn't anything off the shelf, you will have to modify or make your own. Depending on budget I recommend buying a three door Exmoor canvas and having a shop modify it to fit.

Thanks gents - Is there a particular cage ("cost effective") that I should focus on finding? Remember I'm wanting the cage to be interior so the sides and top can be used if decided

You need:
FQB500130 and MUC7809 per door.
They mount in a different location than your old strikers.
