United Kingdom 1986 Defender 130 V8 Petrol HCPU Rioja Red
1986 127 Rebuild

This weekend I collected the 110s replacement, with the 110... felt a bit mean really.
She's a 1986, ex cherry picker, still running a 3.5 V8 on carbs Laughing

Chassis is pretty good, bulkhead not awful, it'll be a great hack until it's converted into a DCPU onto a Galv chassis most likely.

If anyone has any of the necessary bits lurking about, please drop me a message.

Bit of an update...

Had a bit of a think and decided the RPi 4.6 V8 and R380 I was going to use in my 88" S1 would be much better suited to the 130.

Also took the Christmas break as an opportunity to collect some bits for the rebuild, can't recommend a Seat Leon enough!

A friend tipped me off to these Exmoor Trim seats, I didn't need them but they were cheap enough and hella comfy. I've a pair of matching high back rear seats that will be for sale soon.

Managed to find a double cab roof (albeit with a bit of a dent on the drivers side that will need pulling out with a ratchet strap once fitted), and a few other panels including some puma doors locally. Very happy chappy!

A trip to Anglesey to collect a Hicap rear tub and rear bulkhead, they were just round the corner from Red Wharf Bay!

Richard's 130 chassis will be on order soon, still need to find a good TDCI bulkhead, wings and bonnet, TD5 seatbox, rear seatbox and late TD5 dash..
But the shopping list is getting smaller.

Unsure whether to go Wolf/TDCI rear axle or stick with a disc Salsibury?

Also not set on suspension yet.. 1986 127 4.6 V8
