United Kingdom 2013 Defender 90 Puma 2.2 HT Loire Blue
K90

Thought it about time to start a build thread. I’ve learnt plenty from reading others so if someone gets a benefit from mine then I’ll be happy. 2013 hard top in Loire Blue. The mods so far have been returning back to stock. The RAI still remains and I’ll take it off in the next few weeks to see what lurks beneath. It may go back on if there is too much damage. Other mods done are Alive Standard Height Comfort Springs and B6 Dampers, dinitrol treatment and BAS 150 remap.

All spanner work done by me, but I’d draw the line at Engine out or gear box rebuild as I don’t have the gear or space to do it.

It’s a daily driver, usually carrying a dog or 2. Gets a lot of off road use through the shooting season and a bit more relaxed outside of this other than a bit of pigeon shooting or deer stalking to keep the freezer stocked up. I’m pretty much self sufficient as far as meat goes and the Landy has been incredibly trustworthy off road.

Planned future mods in no particular order are:

Rear cross member needs tarting up. Not sure whether to go Gloss, Satin or Matt
Headlining is sagging so wants sorting out.
Performance exhaust. Looking at Twisted as they are local, but would take any suggestions.
There is some corrosion in the bodywork getting sorted under warranty next week, which is nice!
Possibly some new wheels. Fancy some sawtooths in black or anthracite but I’ve been hemming and hawing about this for ages! I can’t decide if it is too far a move away from standard. What do you think? Instagram @richmond_custom

Nice! Personally I would (and did) consider alternatives to Twisted. They make nice stuff but crikey do they charge you for it. Lots of other equally well made, high quality, good fitting alternatives out there, for example Griffin Exhausts from personal experience, though there are lots more > 110 XS Double Cab

Nice looking Defender Thumbs Up I think the wheels you have look great, but I would say that because I don’t like sawtooth I sold mine Thumbs Up Being a sewage diver at least I know how deep the 💩 will be at work today.

Great looking 90! Rims are a tricky decision they make such difference to the look. Personally I'm not keen on black rims as you seem to loose them in the tyre, I'm a fan of anthracite and strongly dislike silver, but purely personal taste. Thumbs Up Good luck Whistle

For exhausts you could look at https://demandengineering.co.uk/ They are local to me and were very helpful quoting a s/s exhaust for my TDi but I couldn't justify the cost in the end. I believe they actually make the exhausts for the likes of Alisport, but don't quote me on that. James

Thanks all. The wheels really are a tough choice, especially the bit about hem getting lost in the tyre. Anthracite might be the way to go over black. Instagram @richmond_custom

Not quite there yet though. I think you’ll agree that the Brunel light surrounds and grill look a bit out of place. Can’t find anyone on here willing to sell me some Santorini black ones though Smile

^^^ I did mine with rattle cans. Just a basic plastic primer then top coat of satin black. They have held up well and show no signs of wear or stone chip. Worth a punt for about £30. Instagram @richmond_custom
