The joys of a defender eh Gary! There’s always something that needs attention Shocked Trip to France looked great, wouldn’t mind a place in the Midi Pyrenees!

Wow wyvern, I can’t believe how much you’ve managed to fit into a defender!
I’m a recent first time defender owner and I’m very interested in fitting a heater in the cubby box like yours. I can’t seem to find any other pictures of them fitted, Looking at your photos at the start of this thread aside from lifting the cubby box it looks like it also pushes the cubby backwards towards the rear. Do you know how far backwards & if that would cause and issue with the rear seats folding forward?
Amazing work Thumbs Up

Hi Dr Meat
Many thanks for your kind comments. Its an ongoing project as all campers are!

The cubby box stays in the same location, just higher. the cubby is in line with the seats backs and as far as I am aware it does not encroach into the 2nd row foot well any more than before fitting - but as i has a subwoofer fitted, the 2nd row was always tight to fold down before the conversion started.

https://www.defender2.net/forum/topic56530-90.html - you can see this from the photo on page 7 of this page after removing the subwoofer and adding a power inverter.

hope that helps !

Thankyou Wyvern for taking the time to respond. In the image below to me it appeared to be moved backwards a couple of inches, it’s good to her that my not be the case. I might be doing something wrong but I can’t seem to find any pictures other than yours of the heater cubby box fitted on the web.
Look forward to seeing more posts about Poppy

You’re welcome Dr Meat
There are a few of us who have converted our defenders for overlanding - Timcat is one of the ones who I admire on here with his ideas and high quality work.

https://www.defender2.net/forum/topic71382.html

We all share our ideas so as people can learn from our mistakes, make their own choices and build their unique dream vehicle.
There is no right or wrong way to do things, just plan to suit your own unique and specific needs.

Looking forward to seeing your conversion.
