At Foley SV we are proud to keep Defenders on the road (and off-road). We have completed all manor of restorations, be it a full rebuild from the ground up, full mechanical overhauls or cosmetic touch ups. With the value of Defenders being so high, a rebuild is a viable way to keep enjoying and owning a Land Rover. Often being referred to as a member of the family, Defenders carry a sentimental value for most owners, so selling theirs and buying another is not an option (not always the best option regardless). We offer a comprehensive rebuild process where we start with a full and thorough mechanical and chassis condition report which determines the level of restoration the vehicle needs.
Recomendations for a Rebuild
Generally for a rebuild, we use the following guidelines but for other levels of restoration, these can be added or deleted. New, Marsland galvanised chassis. Springs and shocks all round. All bushes. Brake pipes where required. Galvanised body crossmember,(110 & 130 only). Galvanized suspension turrets. Optional: Powdercoat of chassis in any colour. Plastic tank (upgrade for early vehicles). Reconditioned or New Engine (depending on model). Reconditioned gearbox. Reconditioned transferbox. Axles overhauled. Full mechanical inspection and replacement of all parts necessary done prior to chassis change.
