I wish I had pictures of the truck.

As I said in my post, I am the future owner of this truck.

I am having it built as we speak and wont see it until Feb 2019 as it is a 1994 coming from overseas.

Very good question, I am actually building it myself and commissioned someone to do it as I am starting a Custom Defender Restoration business that is more affordable to mortals like myself as opposed to the $100k+ that most places ask for to have quality work.

most builders/ restoration shops are looking to make HUGE profits as opposed to helping people get in to their dream truck.

I will be able to give quality and attention to details for much less than others....but I have to start with my own and see if it would work,

Most Rover shops are not getting rich and there are many places that would do that work at a decent price. Doing these rebuild properly involves huge amounts of labour.

I think some shops are really getting rich doing this here in the US.

Let me ask you or anyone seeing this thread.... what would a Defender cost to have as described above??

I need some numbers and I'll tell you what I could sell the car for

I think people were asking as there are more than a handful of what we will call "less than reputable shops" out there.

The cost to do that work is completely dependent on the quality of the work. A paint job can be $2000 or $20000. You are not showing much there. It is just a lipstick job. Make it look pretty but do not fully deal with corrosion protection nor rebuild the mechanicals. It is the flipper way.

What takes time and money but does little to help sell is pulling it apart. Gala coming all the steel. Coating everything well. Rebuilding the drivetrain and suspension properly.

What you list is $10000 to $30000 depending on how nice you want to do it.
