There comes a time in the lives of many Series Land Rover owners when routine service and maintenance just isn't sufficient anymore. Something more serious has to be done to sort the vehicle out to enable it to keep performing the duties it is required to do.

Finance is usually a key factor of course, but the owner's perspective upon the specification profile of their vehicle can also dictate which way the problem is approached. Is there a desire to do a complete rebuild of the vehicle, such that it appears as it would have done as it left the factory? Or, simply a wish to refurbish all the aspects of the Land Rover that are no longer upto the standard that is required. Perhaps there's an interest in incorporating additional features such as an electric fan, electronic ignition or a non-standard engine so that the vehicle may more easily accomplish the tasks it is asked to perform.

Series Land Rover owners range widely in their attitude towards vehicle specification profiles. There are those who would not allow a metric fastening to be used anywhere on their vehicle whilst others will allow any modification/addition which has utility value. Most owners fall somewhere between these two extremes.
