Land Rover Defender Restoration Process
The Restoration Process
Each vehicle and owner is of course unique, so VIEZU treat each project in the same way. As such it often starts with a vision, a dream, or plan of how the owner would like their Land Rover Defender to look. Building to a bespoke project plan. – Everything is open to discussion – we like a challenge!
Due to the custom and bespoke nature of VIEZU’s Land Rover Defender Restoration Programme the owner can have their cake and eat it. Paintwork colour, interior trim, seats, wheels, suspension, engine, brakes, transmission. As well as bodywork can all be custom specified and built. – Your Defender, the way YOU want it – not the one on someone else’s options list!
You will have a unique Project Manager who will send you weekly updates and images of the works to date. As you near the completion date, you are given the opportunity to carry out a test drive and “shake-down” to grab anything for the snagging list.
It’s a very immersive and interactive experience, you literally become part of the Team and can be as involved as you like.
…and yes, this really is the same white 110 after a 6-month restoration project:

It is important before you decide what to do with your chassis you inspect your chassis thoroughly. We offer a free inspection to assess your chassis and level of protection, or repairs required.
Protect your chassis
You may find after inspecting your Defender’s chassis, your chassis is in a good condition (you may find a little surface rust) which means you will need to treat your chassis. Once treated, it is important to protect your Defender’s chassis. We offer to treat and protect your Defender chassis at our workshop. It is also recommended underseal is reapplied every 2-3 years.
Repair your Chassis
Where you have some areas of corrosion, it may be your chassis can be repaired, if caught early enough. We can arrange a free inspection, with no obligation, of your Defender’s chassis.
Once your chassis is repaired you are likely to want to apply a rust treatment, and underseal the chassis in line with the above.
