Coachworks and Bodyshop


Right from the start we included body repair and modification to our business repertoire. Because Land Rover Defenders and Jeep Wranglers are so versatile it encouraged all manner of body, chassis and mechanical upgrades and modifications. We are able to convert all variations and wheelbases to soft top, game viewer, camper, safari, ski bus or tipper body. We have several different designs of soft top to cover your vehicle offering additional roll over protection if required.

Our in-house coachworks is driven by a team of 5 craftsmen who have the breadth of skills to cover any requirement. It is also great to know that our bodyshop team proudly has steerage from two traditional craftsmen who have been in the industry for 40 years or more supported by three painters and traditional panel beaters.

If we can’t source it we will make it! Often our clients require something adding to their vehicle that is not to be found on any shelf. So we will just design and manufacture it to your requirements. We continue to work very closely with a local steel fabrication and manufacturing facility which offer fantastic versatility and quality finish especially for folding panels and aluminium work. So whatever may be your requirement we have it covered.

Valet & Detailing

Valeting is more than running a damp sponge over your vehicle’s paintwork. It might sound like an obvious thing to say but not everyone that offers to ‘valet’ your car are actually doing anything of the kind.

We offer a full Valet and Detailing service for every make and model of vehicle.

When you get back into your car after we’ve finished with it you should feel like you’re stepping into it for the first time. A showroom finish is what we strive for. This includes correcting any paint blemishes and scuffs to the exterior trim. The upholstery and carpet will undergo a thorough deep clean and the exterior will be treated with a high-gloss wax for a long lasting finish you just will not find anywhere else.


Waxoyl and Dinitrol Rustproofing

Protection of your vehicle is very important to ensure its longevity and avoid expensive repairs later in life or even its subsequent scrappage. In the UK the use of road salt in winter is particularly harsh we recommend treating and preserving your vehicle every three-to-five years but owners of vehicles located near the coast or, even worse, vehicles that have been driven in the sea are particularly vulnerable and we would highly recommend carrying out Waxoyl or Dinitrol treatment annually. Once the initial treatment has been applied we are more than happy to carry out regular inspections and touch up or re-apply the protective products as necessary.

See our RUSTPROOFING page for further information


Defender 130 Station Wagons

There is always a high demand for longer bodied Defender station wagons, commercial bodies and camper conversions. Or clients often require more leg room or ability to accommodate larger number of passengers, tools and equipment. To achieve this we take a standard Defender 130 double cab, remove the roof and rear pick up body and coach-build a longer station wagon body and roof onto the existing front body section. This will create a clean traditional extra long wheel base station wagon with 5 doors.

The ability to move the front and middle row of seats further back for much more leg room is now an option. Massive rear storage for equipment and the ability to accommodate a further eight passengers behind the middle row may give you up to fourteen seats. This long Defender 130 Station Wagon conversion also lends its self to utility or camper conversion.

We have also built several Defender 130 ambulances for various emergency response teams here in the UK.
