ROW Defender Project

Hello Mates, I am rebuilding my ROW Defender 90. Originally, I was rebuilding to go exclusively off road but when my Insurence company raised my rate due to my 27 y/o truck being worth $35, I've decided to go another direction. I've decided to paint the truck charcoal gray and make the truck look anew. In currently on the second phase of the rebuild.the following is in the plan: - Warn wench 10,000 lb. - Rockware front bumper - Rockware rear bumper with high-lift brackets - New 10 LED lights from the UK - Soft top dyed black - Tomb Raider Boost touched up - Front seats covered with leather/ refurbished Updates and progress will be posted as they occur. Thanks for reading. Click image for larger version

Cool - I like gray as a colour ... or grey as a color as the 'mericans spell.

Where are you doing the work? Dan and I were looking for workshop space to rent ... and with winter coming up I'm sure it will be on the discussions again!

I have some Jamaican friends that are wicked with the painting and skilled at doing body work. His price is completely reasonable. In fact, the work is close to but not more than $4k. I ordered some body panels from Britpart. He replaced some/most of the rivets and put new ones. The paint was grind or melted off using a solution. The shop is on Ditmis in Brooklyn. His name is Willie (718) 498-5556. He knows these trucks because there's a lot of them in Jamaica. I love his work. He did wonders on a Mercedes that I once owned.

Not this year. After my D130 arrives, I'll change this motor for the 200 or the 300tdi.
