Sorry, late to this party, any additional parts needed to do the LHD to RHD axle swap? I have some LHD disco axles inbound for my RHD D90 and it looks pretty straight forward but I hate getting caught with my pants down (caught being the key word there).

You probably won't need any additional parts for the conversion. A lot of times a LHD axle is already setup for RHD as well. Land Rover has converted a lot of of RHD axles to LHD by just adding the LHD swivel housing. So maybe you can just fit the Disco axle!

For the rear axle you will have to change the part where you fix the propshaft to (cannot think of the English word, it's Saturday night :-) ), because the Disco axle is set up to use a rubber donut coupling.
I have lots of photo's of almost every repair/conversion, but it seems I don't have any photo's of these differences. I will have to take some next time.

Mooi werk! Nog veel succes! Is de VIN nummer nog altijd duidelijk zichtbaar na het galvanizing process?

Dank je wel.
Yes, most of the times the VIN is still clearly visible after galvanizing. Sometimes it gets faint, but then I'll just heat it with the blow torch and you can just remove the zinc with a wire brush.
This time I have put a few layers of two pack paint on the number, the paint has burnt off during the galvanizing process and the numbers is visible.

I've included a photo, but I don't think you can see it in the picture.

Nice work! So just out of curiosity how much would a rebuild defender like that one, end up costing?

That depends on how much extra's the customer wants, and the level of finishing of the details.

Most of our cars are sold for a price between 20000 and 30000 euro's, so at this moment that would be between 26000 and 39000 dollars.

This ninety has been sold for $ 34400,- It will get ZU alloys with 285/75/16 Goodyear MTR's, that is a big factor in the price, I think those are almost $ 4000,- together... So the base car without the big wheel would cost around $ 30.000,-

For export to the US the prices could be a little lower, because we wouldn't have to charge sales tax, and the prices above have the sales tax included.

This is something we don't see often, perfect rustfree doors. We didn't have to do any work on the front doors, but we have bought a new rear door.

We've sprayed a layer of Epoxy primer on the ninety, to have a good base for some finishing filler. Ofcourse we had to sand a lot off again, so after this the car will get another two layers of Epoxy.

Is there a big market for Restored 90's and 110's there? Considering they are still sold as new to this day.

Build looks good, look forward to the updates!

Hi, yes there is. In Holland road tax for a Defender is very high about $ 3000,- to $ 3500,- each year. When a car is over 25 years old it is tax exempt, so that saves a lot of money. Most of the times a Defender is a second or third car and isn't driven that much, so most people don't like to pay that much money for just owning a car.

But we have a new government right now, and they are talking about changing these rules and that could be very bad for my business. I still have about 40 Defenders in stock waiting to be restored, so maybe I should look into starting to export to the US when I have finished my current restorations waiting list.....

If I'm not mistaken, the Netherlands has a significant Tax differential between newish and 25+ years old vehicles.

Even though the wheel's weight isn't on the door, I'd throw a middle hinge on that rear door.

Yes we will do that, we have just put the door in for now, to figure out the fixing holes for the spare wheel carrier.
Ofcourse we will still have to paint the door as well..
