For sale is a one of kind Land Rover Defender 90 convertible vehicles, which has undergone a total restoration. After the vehicle was acquired it was disassembled entirely and thoroughly inspected to assess the condition of the chassis and the individual body panels. Once the chassis was modified to accept the new engine it was sent for acid dipping for a good clean and rust removal. After this, it was e-coated which is a special paint process that ensures that even all the hard to reach areas are covered in a very hard wearing coating which will prevent any rust developing in the future. All body panels which weren't perfect were replaced and then painted in matte tan, after which they were wax-oiled throughout, yet again to prevent corrosion.
