The drivers lower door and back are the only pieces of metal that I find nice.


Even the bulk head flaps are looking funny. I might have to cover up that picture with a lot of post it notes to find any redeeming quality.



McGovern probably shows that picture around the office, "see I told you all round headlights are ugly!"

It must be cursed, so it will probably survive that too and resurface somewhere in Portland. It's really no use, it will be the last Defenderesque figure standing when the rest of the world has been obliterated...

The best part is the first line, "This Land Rover Defender has several tastefully done exterior and interior custom upgrades and modifications."

It’s good the top works with gasoline and the paint.

I beg to differ. Venezuelan Series Rover restorations are the the hot new thing on BaT.

If you want top $$ you gotta paint your carburetor black!

This reminds me of when I used parts from 4 different Jeeps to repair my YJ following a rollover. It was red, blue, white, and black. I was going to call it "Patches" but decided to paint it instead.

Sometimes it's better to decide on one color and stick with it.

And there has to be room for a couple more lights on there. I want more than 10 forward facing lights for that kind of $$.

I would expect door stops for 35k. But people say am picky. (Except with beer and food)

Either this Def has a RHD/LHD identity crisis or the "designer" ordered a RHD snorkel by mistake and decided for it to not go to waste...
