So you need someone to buff the paint, install a rear load mat and a front seat? Bring it to a detail shop. Or is it not running? I thought you were looking for a black D90 this time.

As Josh said I'd have someone hit that with a buffer before you go for a respray. Single-stage is surprisingly resilient, and I'd rather have original paint on the truck unless it's a panel-off paint job.

that doesn't look bad at all. buff it, add another seat and a cubby and some mats and be done with it.

or basically what josh said.

unless you're trying to sell it. then thats a whole other story.

Emailed ECR, they want nothing to do with non NAS Defenders. Just wanted a high quality respray and didn't care about cost. They just said NO! So unless you have one of those don't contact them!

I wonder what may have been the catalyst for that policy

You guys know of any? Thanks!
The closest I know of is Lamorna Garage in Seattle, WA.

I tried using the "guys I know" on a project, a '71 Mercedes 300SEL 6.3. Ended up spending a tremendous amount of time helping to diagnose issues, track down parts, and making mistakes as nobody had touched the model before.

Not doing that again. Would find a shop, send it off and tell them to call me when it is done. Tired of having to be general contractor.

My car guy friends know about ECR, and ECR does good work. Will their name have a positive influence on resale value at some point making the price difference (if any) worth the extra money? Guess it depends on the goals for the vehicle.

Letting anyone inexperienced near a 6.3 is crazy talk. I could only find one guy I trusted to come near the 250 I owned.

The 300 6.3 of that era is a work of art.

Try West Coast British. He won't paint but he can do everything else. The owner is Mike, he knows defenders. He worked for landrover when they were importing them to the U.S. and his father worked for LR in the UK WAY BACK. The guy is an animal and he is honest and fair. I would trust him with anything
