England 2012 Defender 110 Puma 2.2 XS CSW Orkney Grey
My Orkney 110

Here's an introduction to myself and my 110.

She's a 2012 orkney grey 110xs, purchased as a boggo standard but tidy example some time ago and I began steadily improving her straight away. She can frustrate and get a little tiresome at times but still never fails to raise a smile, she has her quirks and foibles but that only makes my fondness for her grow, she likes a little strop every now and then and certainly keeps me on my toes and I love all the more dearly for it. I can genuinely say that this the first vehicle that I have owned that I intend on keeping forever.

I have been lurking on the forum and find it to be an invaluable source of information from the knowledgeable and helpful members.

Mods so far are:
Momo steering wheel with optimill quick release boss and swivel lock (my favourite thing)
Ardcase pedal lock (not exactly a mod but essential and the first purchase I made)
Twisted wheels/BFG KO2's
Uproar bumper with DRL's
Uproar steering guard
KBX wing top vents
Painted wing mirrors
JVC double din head unit
Reverse camera
Focal speakers and Focal 2.1 Subwoofer (mounted in MUDuk sub-box under cubby)
Lots of neat little security enhancements courtesy of defendersecurity
Door cards, cubby, dash panels and sun visors retrimmed in leather

very nice looking car.

Where did you get the door cards from? I like

was the privacy glass on when you got it and is it factory fit?

I dont have and need to for the kids in the back to shelter from the sun. they notice the difference between our 110 which doesn't have it but our other car does.

I have been looking at aftermarket film but not sure

Cheers for all your comments.

The interior trimming was done by Regis Pike, he can be found on Instagram.

The door cards are great and really lift the overall appearance of the interior, the cubby is Regis’s design built to my dimensions as I have it mounted on a sub-box. I cannot rate the quality of the workmanship enough, he is also very reasonably priced.

The window tints were already on when I purchased it and to be honest it’s not a great job, I have considered removing and starting again. For now they’ll stay though, I do like to keep out nosey, straying eyes
