Defender 130 Viper
Our vehicles are some of the most customized, rugged and unique trucks on the market. To let you know what you can expect if you choose a custom-build vehicle with ECD Auto Design, we’ve compiled a blog series of some of our most Frequently Asked Questions. Check out Part 1 below.
1. Where do your vehicles come from?
Our agents are continually scouring Europe to find old Defenders in good condition that can serve as base vehicles for us to import and then customize. We handle all aspects of the import process, making sure all paperwork and details are handled in a legal and correct manner.
2. What is your build process?
Our builds follow a nine stage process through our line, overseen by our 25-year Land Rover veteran technician. The stages are: 1) Tear down, 2) Fab up, 3) Paint, 4) Drive train, 5) Body assembly, 6) Electronics, 7) Upholstery, 8) Cosmetics, and 9) Quality check. There are dozens of details associated with each stage. You can learn more about our build process here.
3. Where do you build your vehicles?
The build process takes place either in our east coast facility, the Rover Dome in Orlando, Florida or at our west coast facility in Malibu, California.
4. Can I check out your facility?
Rover Dome, our state-of-the-art facility in beautiful Florida, welcomes visitors. Come watch our talented craftsmen work. Feel free to stop by from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays and by appointment from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays.
