Fitting the bullbar to the Defender

When I bought the Defender it had two very sturdy head light protectors in place. But I wanted a more sturdy look and better acces to the lights in case they needed to be replaced in the field.That's why I decided to replace the light guards with a wrap around bullbar.

After an online search I found one at the other side of the country. It was necessary for the bullbar to fit on an overland Defender with aircon, which not all do. But this one luckily did. When I came back home I found out there was rust beneath some parts of the plastic coating. Not too bad, but I wanted it to be in great condition. So I cleared the affected areas of rust and put some Hammerite on it.

The old spotlights that came with the bullbar were completely rusted stuck in place. I had to grind them off unfortunately.
