REBUILDS & DETAILING
At Historic we're passionate about all things Land Rover. We're based in Leicestershire, United Kingdom and work from our dedicated Defender workshop carrying out the highest standard of conversions, upgrades and alterations. Our experienced team of mechanics, craftsmen, paint technicians and upholstery trimmers allow all our projects to be completed to the highest detail and quality standards. We ensure that every Defender Project / Edition is delivered and specified to your exacting detail.
Our work is well recognised globally, our superb testimonials and feedback will give you the confidence needed when making your investment. We offer our clients a wide range of services including complete and partial restorations, paint and body work. We understand the importance of your Custom Defender project.
The cost of each restoration varies greatly largely depending on the condition of the donor vehicle and the level of customisation you require. For example, a complete rust-free running and driving car, restored fully would be less expensive than one brought to us in boxes. Complete restorations although expensive due to being so time heavy and the sheer amount of parts needed, are the most rewarding. Not only in terms of the excitement associated in the final vehicle once completed, but equally so in terms of the incremental progress of the restoration itself which we always keep you in the loop.
Our Trim & Detailing shop offers the full package. We put as much thought and detail into our interiors as we do our exteriors. We pride ourselves on being able to create the interior to your specification. Seat upgrades with our Sports and Hi-Back options and a new smaller leather steering wheel giving a much improved driving position, to a range of services from a replacement headlining to dash and door cards in your choice of material and stitch.
Everything we do provides the much-needed transformation from work horse to the comfortable and reliable daily driver. Once you have decided which specifications you're going to make, the next choice is the materials and colour scheme, down to the thread colour and stitch style.
