Safari Engineering - Land Rover Chassis Replacement
Land Rover Galvanised Chassis and Bulkhead Repairs in Eversley, Hampshire
There’s no doubt about it, your Land Rover's chassis is the biggest problem most Land Rover owners will face during the life of their Landy. It is that huge lump of steel, that’s hiding under the floor of your vehicle. As standard the Land Rover chassis, under your 4-wheel drive, came from the factory with just a thin layer of paint on it to protect it from the elements.
As you would expect, this protection is easily damaged and very thin, which leads to corrosion setting in, and rust holes appearing. Eventually the chassis will get so weak that it will snap in two, potentially causing an accident or even a fatality.
At Safari Engineering, your local Land Rover Specialist in Eversley, we fit replacement Galvanised Chassis to all Land Rover Models. Series 2, Series 2a, Series 3, Defender 90, Defender 110 and Defender 130 all suffer with corroded chassis, these will need replacing sooner or later. We've changed rusted Land Rover Chassis for the galvanized chassis for over 25 years and have completed hundreds of jobs over the years.
We source our chassis from some of the UK’s leading chassis manufacturers to ensure both quality and exact dimensions. Did you know that over 75% of all Land Rovers ever made are still on the road? Many of these are now riding on a replacement galvanized chassis.
The job of changing your old rusty chassis is a complicated procedure, and not for the faint hearted. But, with the Safari Engineering Chassis Swap Service you can give your Land Rover a new lease of life, keep it on the road and greatly improve its resale value.
The Land Rover chassis swap process includes the removal of all body work, drive train, engine, gearbox and mechanical components from your old worn-out, and corroded chassis. All components are then checked, cleaned and re-assembled onto a shiny new, heavy duty galvanised chassis. This is also a great time to think about other long term maintenance operations. We would always recommend replacing the clutch and engine timing belts during a chassis change. These are expensive repairs on their own, but during a chassis change become cost effective. Along with a new chassis, new brake pipes, fuel pipes and suspension bushes also come highly recommended, and are replaced as standard within the cost of the job.
Another job which is a lot easier to do whilst your Land Rover is in pieces, is to replace or repair the Land Rover bulkhead. The bulkhead of your Land Rover, is renowned for corrosion and rust is often so bad that complete replacement is the only way to go. At Safari Engineering we supply and fit galvanised Land Rover bulkheads to ensure longevity, and minimise future problems with this known corrosion weak point.
Just as our customers are all different, so are their 4-wheel drives. When you bring your vehicle to us at Safari Engineering to have a new galvanised chassis and bulkhead fitted, we will take a close look at what’s needed to return your vehicle to you in tip top condition, and explain to you the most cost effective route to take to get your vehicle back on the road. All our quotes are based upon doing a top notch job that will ensure the vehicle's long life and trouble free motoring. You deserve that from your Land Rover!
