Previous Land Rover Defender Restorations

We’ve taken on a few Land Rover Defender restorations… simply because we love them. They’re a real passion project for all the team at Wildworx. We love working on them and love seeing the finished product. 

Land Rover Defender 90 Modified - Keswick Green

This fantastic vehicle underwent a full restoration by Wildworx. We chose this Keswick Green Land Rover for restoration because of its fantastic service history. It had once been used as the demo model for Land Rover themselves. This Defender 90 has only ever been touched by Land Rover mechanics, meaning it runs like new. 

The restoration process has been extensive. This includes a full body respray in the very desirable Keswick Green with Gloss black roof. Fully soundproofed and insulated using Dodo Peacemat. Panoramic tinted glass upgrade. Tinted roof lights. A lux Alcantara Suede lining has been added to the headlining, door panels, custom built interior panels and added trims. 16” Sawtooth Alloy Wheels with the classic BF Goodrich tyres. New front grill facelift. XL Smoked lens kit front and rear. Halo headlights. Interior LED upgrade. Dynamic smoked side repeaters. 6mm Steering guard. Gloss Black Wheel Arches. Black Side Steps. Mud Flaps. Tread plate wing tops. Black leather, heated sport seats. 2 Bench seats in rear. Sustainable and water resistant Iroko (teak) flooring. L-track cargo tie down system. Iroko bulkhead rail and rear door handle detail. Hidden LED strip mood lighting. USB charger in cab. Light Switch, USB and charging socket in rear. Tow bar.

Defender 90 Interior

Your Defender 90 interior will depend on what you’re using the vehicle for. If you’re planning on Overlanding, you will need to concentrate on the practicality of your build. 

There are a growing number of Defenders based in the city. Realistically these vans are just about the aesthetics! This is where your interior 

Land Rover Camper

The Defender is a great option when purchasing a campervan. The Defender 110 makes a great full campervan conversion, giving you enough space to add the pop top roof. However the Defender 90 Camper is also a fantastic option for a compact van for short trips. 

There are a few different ways to convert your Land Rover Defender into a Campervan. The first is to have a non-permanent conversion. This would include a roof tent mounted onto your roof rack. Inside you would then be able to use the rear of the vehicle to store removable kit. For example kitchen and cooking equipment. The tent box we would recommend is:

Land Rover Pop Top Roof

The more permanent Land Rover camper conversion would include fitting a pop top roof. There are a few different companies that supply pop tops for the Land Rover Defender 110. Including

Installing a full electrical system with solar panels is a great way to get yourself truly off-grid. We’re also able to fit gas systems and water tanks. As well as cabinetry to create your Land Rover Camper kitchen. 

A Defender Camper really can take you anywhere you want to go. From the beaches of Cornwall, to the Highlands of Scotland. All the way to Sub Saharan Africa. They are made to be driven, they’re made for exploring. They are the ultimate Overlander vehicle, giving you the opportunity to go off-grid.
