Trim and Soundproofing

We are going to make a bit of a presumption that as you’re looking at our website you are probably a fan of vehicles that can sometimes be an acquired taste? If you wanted something normal, comfortable and quiet you’d be looking at, right?!

However just because you like your vehicles looking purposeful and spirited doesn’t mean you have to endure the harshness they often come with. You CAN have an off road truck that is also comfortable for long journeys and quiet enough to have a conversation with your passengers without shouting.

Fitting new seats, soundproofing the bulkhead and headlining, renewing the door cards and even just fitting new custom mats can have your vehicle feeling like new again.

Nene Overland have been refurbishing vehicles for many years, particularly those at the utility end of the spectrum, so we know a thing or two about making a civilized family car out of a truck.

We carry the full range of seats from Exmoor Trim as well as a huge range of seat covers – including the legendary Melvill & Moon canvas covers.

We can also turn your hardtop into a convertible for the summer. Please contact us for advice.

Interior Trim

Completely reworked Defender dashboard and interior. The finished effect is a million miles away from its utilitarian origins

We can retire the interior in any combination of finishes and colours that you like. Leather, suede, metallic, carbon effect or even wood.

Bring the deck of your yacht right into your Defender! Unique looks and finish with very practical and hardwearing finish

Upgrading the standard gear levers and other switchgear and handles to alloy finish adds a very nice flourish to the interior

We can continue the leather trim right throughout the interior including cubby box and door cards. Even hard-back sports seats like these don’t have to be too firm and uncomfortable

Leather comes in all kinds of colours, finishes and textures including Crocodile Skin

Seating Conversions and Upgrades

Recaro seats remain a favourite for those wanting a sporty feel but we offer a wide range of alternatives

Seats can be retried to your exact requirements. All one finish, two-tone, different leathers, whatever you desire

Just because you own a hard-top utility vehicle like this one doesn’t mean you cannot have a comfortable and unique cabin!


defender-icon-interior-8No matter how comfy we try to make you in your 4×4 if you can’t talk to your passengers or hear the radio you won’t enjoy the ride. So It all starts with the acoustics and soundproofing. Trying to listen to the finer periods of La Bohème in a Defender hard-top running on BFG muds is just a fruitless exercise. Applying a decent level of soundproofing and carefully placing component speakers to maximize the sound fidelity and overcome the background road noise will have you belting out the lyrics to the fourth act like Puccini wrote it just for you!

Soundproofing the bulkhead and headlining, renewing the door cards and even just fitting new custom mats can have your vehicle feeling like new again. We don’t want to completely mask the sound of the engine, you need to hear the meaty rasp from time to time, but cutting out basic road noise is straightforward if you do it properly.
