Project Snow

1990 Land Rover Defender 110 - 200Tdi - Adventure Defender

The Base Restoration

This Land Rover Defender came to us in a sad state of repair, with rusted doors and a tired old engine. We went to work on swapping out all 5 doors, rebuilding the engine, and respraying the body in the factory Alpine White color.

A Timeless Classic

We added a few creature comforts to make this project truly unique.  We upgraded the dash to include air conditioning, updated heating, touch screen stereo, leather seats, re-trimmed headliner, gullwing rear windows, locking storage drawer, and a roof top tent.

Heritage + Style

This Defender will be exploring the back roads and mountain passes of the southern United States over the next few years, as the new owner gets to know this very special build.

One of those special builds where we put a lot of extra work into to make it the ultimate Overlanding vehicle. The task was to make it tough and rugged, but able to drive across country on a moments notice.

Finished in Alpine White with satin black accents. Custom gullwing rear windows to allow easy access to camping gear. Fitted with a custom rear storage system, rooftop tent, and a few other extras.

Converted the interior to a Puma Style dash featuring a custom heating and air conditioning system that kept us toasty warm while out snapping photos.

The new caretaker was planning on camping the first time on his drive home from the Minneapolis workshop.
