Restoring the Defender
It all starts with your classic Defender dream. At ECD Automotive Design, we don't believe in a standard customization journey or a one-size-fits-all approach to creating a bespoke ride. While we start with the nostalgic look and rough-and-ready character of an original Land Rover Defender, your new ride is ushered into The Rover Dome and guided through these steps by a talented team of automotive experts:
- Welcome & Draft Your Restoration Designs: Meet with designers and approve a complete custom rendering before moving forward.
- Breakdown: Tools in hand, our team dives into teardown, documenting everything along the way for a detailed look at the condition of your Land Rover Defender/Jaguar/RRC.
- Fab Up Restoration: Everything is tuned up, fabricated, and restored, from the drivetrain to the taillights.
- Customize: From customized hinges to EV drivetrains, we don't just restore Defenders, we create your personal Defender with certified technicians. In this phase everything comes together to create your final custom Defender, Jaguar, or RRC.
