They're VBS Nemesis.
16x8 with ET10 offset with a 1250kg load rating which is a factor with the 130 due to the axle rating.


Looked at twisted but they were more than twice the price and had a lower load rating.

The headlining is a 4 piece fiberglass unit from LeSalle. It was light grey when I bought it so resprayed it in matt black.

While it was off, I insulated the roof and side panels.


The Map folders were £10 jobs off ebay Smile

I'm dead jealous that looks fantastic.

Is it a std 110 van rear mated to a 110 csw front for the bodywork?

I believe it was a double cab / bare chassis from the factory which was then mated with a new 110 hard top rear tub / body before it went into service. Custom Brownchurch roofrack then fitted.
You can see it clearer in this view..

Looks superb Thumbs Up

If I had the time and money I'd stretch mine into this version as its way more useful space wise. Running Restoration Thread http://www.defender2.net/forum/post323197.html#323197

Just sorting out some cargo rail and drop down hinges / mounts for a set of sand tracks on the rear panel, hence it's not 'decorated' yet Laughing

That looks fantastic. I'm very jealous of the zebra stripes - are they DIY or did you buy some sort of kit? Darren
