Thread: Land Rover Defender Roof Conversion

    Land Rover Defender Roof Conversion

    Brain picking time guys, i have been offered a really nice 110 defender for a very low price However
    i want to convert the hard top roof to make it more suitable for lamping, i have seen alot of conversions
    where the roof is hacked to bits but i am after a more subtle job either folding fabric or large sunroof,
    Any ideas gratefully appreciated.

    Hello,
    if its a hardtop van back one i would personally get a truck cab for it providing the bulkhead hasnt been removed behind the drivers seat. then get a ifor williams back for it, which can be easily removed for lamping. and when on the motor offers a bit of sercurity if you get the solid door for the canopy.

    As far as i am aware the bulkhead has been removed or yes that would be a good option, thanks matt.

    Simple solution is to pick up a roof for a county station wagon, the sun roof is detachable and the middle squab seat can be removed .theres also picking up a canvas mod top for a 110 from john craddock or paddock motors

    daz missing the navy are we .

    LRC Congleton could cut you the roof as you want and fit a shooting rail at same time.

    Here's what I did with mine, fairly easy to do if you're handy with a welder and totally water tight. Lid fits on top obviously and you lift it off when required.

    Tom - that's very nice, and is pretty well what I'm intending to do to mine. Where did you get the actual hatch from?
