While it's difficult to attach a "solid" price to a custom build, we've taken the worry out of the process. You simply tell us what you'd like the end result to be and we'll provide you with an estimate based on our years of experience.
Here's essentially how the process works:
Chose your color from top-quality, custom paint finishes such as Speis Hecker and PPG, including the interior and exterior, complete with aluminum primer, base coat, color coat, and clear coat.
We'll install new doors alleviating the well-known problem of galvanic corrosion. NEW body panels will be used where required and all body panels will then be sprayed separately, ensuring a long-lasting finish.
All of our Defenders are built from the ground-up, from scratch. Each vehicle will be completely dismantled down to every last nut and bolt. We'll then replace all nut and bold with Grade A4 stainless, as well as all door and window seals.
YOUR WHEELS & TIRES
YOU choose your wheels and tires – the possibilities are endless. Choose from B.F. Goodrich, Pirelli, Goodyear, General and many more. When it comes to wheels, we can recommend the best choices for your particular application.
Often overlooked, the chassis is literally the backbone of your new vehicle. It is a critical component of the vehicle and the main reason we don't skimp when it comes to our chassis. The entire unit is media-blasted to the bare metal, repaired where and if necessary, corrosion-treated inside and out, epoxy-primer coated and/or powder-coated to provide years of worry-free dependability.
Relying on our years of experience building Land Rover Defenders, we will ensure that the transmission is fully serviced, including a new clutch system with a heavy-duty ford, bearing slave, and master cylinder for the manuals and complete new internals for the automatics.
We'll rebuild the entire brake system with NEW parts, including bake pipes, cylinders, calipers, vented discs, pads, shoes, and hoses.
The front axle will be treated to new swivels and CV joints, new prop shafts front and rear, as well as a complete overhaul of the drive axles and hubs, including all new seals and bearings.
We will rebuild the entire suspension system, including springs, shocks, mountings, and bushes all around – with all new galvanized parts.
We'll fit a new steering box, track rods, steering rod, and ball joints, too.

We're based in Wilmington, NC – with access to road, rail, and sea transportation. We make the shipping of your new vehicle painless.
We pride ourselves on involving our clients to their needs and wants. Some are VERY involved with the process, rqeuiring daily updates and some only want to know when it'll be ready to drive. Whatever you want, we'll provide.
Regardless, the entire build process is documented with photos, and videos when available.
