We offer limousine airport (SNA) pick-up if you're flying in to pick-up this beautiful vehicle or we can help facilitate shipping directly to your front door.Body & Paint The Panel Shop Team at Arkonik ensures that all vehicles are well prepared for our incomparable paint application. The Team expertly strips all paint from the aluminium body, removes old bolts and old body parts, all panels (old and new) are smoothed, coated and adjusted prior to the first primer coats of paint being applied. Following final detailed panel alignment it heads round the corner to the spray booth.
Customers are offered an extensive array of paint colours and finishes to choose from. Before the chosen colour is applied, our team of expert sprayers coats the vehicle with 5 coats of primer and one coat of Etch Primer. The vehicle is then masked up and finished with a direct gloss or matte paint finish. From Matte Black to Rosso Fuoco Red, virtually any color our clients desire can be created with any number of interesting effects incorporated including; mica, pearl and metallic additives. Just like Land Rover we prepare and paint each individual panel in separate order, roof, doors, fenders, hood, side panels etc are all individually treated meaning that when the vehicle is reassembled there is a truly perfect factory finish.
Trim Shop is where the customisation process really starts to take shape. Vehicles are installed with custom parts, bespoke interior trim, and a range of accessories. The vehicles panels and doors, all separated by brand new seals, are reassembled, followed by the laying of acoustic insulation in the tub, footwells, and roof lining. The cosmetic reconstruction of each custom vehicle sees new carpet, windows, electrics, tyres and rims fitted to the Defender. The interior panels, roof lining, instrument gauges, door hardware and dashboard refurbishment are unique to each vehicle and installed over an intensive 4-week period. Clients get pretty excited for shots of their ongoing build in progress, and we make sure we deliver.
Engine, Suspension & Electrical
The Workshop Team then strips the donor Defender to its bare bones, sand blasts it to identify areas in need of repair, and then begins all necessary framework restoration. A huge amount of mechanical work is then undertaken on the vehicle, after which a better-than-new reconditioned engine is placed into the heart of the Defender. Be it a V8 or 2.5TD, the Team always enjoys standing by to hear it roar into life again for the first time. It’s then time to build the Defender back up again with new or reconditioned transmission, electrical loom, hydraulic circuits, suspension, axle internals, exhaust, prop shafts, final drive, steering and brakes.
Maintaining an extremely high level of quality during each stage of the customisation process is paramount and overseen by the QC Department. All Arkonik Defenders must pass smoke tests for weatherproofing, VOSA MOT certification, and an independent roadworthiness examination. Every crevice of every vehicle is rigorously inspected by four members of the Senior Management Team, including our CEO, Mr Andy Hayes. Our on- and off-road testing measures push these Defenders to their limits. All of our machines are test driven at least 500 miles. Simply put, any Defender built here does not leave until it is deemed 100% safe, 100% reliable, and 101% to our standards.
