This company will pre-rust your new Land Rover Defender for you
Fancy a new Defender with some 'old' elements?
A Dutch tuning company called Heritage Customs has made a new addition for the brand new Land Rover Defender which allows you to give it a rusty-look.
Yes, you heard that right, not 'rustic' but 'rusty'. This company will add pre-rusted parts to your Defender which sit on the bonnet and on the sides which makes an odd change to carbon fibre bits and bobs.
The car has also been fitted with bigger 22-inch wheels and an inviting dark brown leather interior which spreads throughout.
In order to complete this 'pre-rusted' look Heritage Customs can use a variety of materials from aluminium, brass, bronze, titanium, zinc and even gold. They then apply a thin layer of any of those metals to literally any interior or exterior surface and make it rusty if you want.
If not, the material can be brushed, polished or sanded to your liking. In order to get the rust-look you will need to ask for the oxidisation treatment. You can then choose to seal it straight away to protect the look, or you can allow it to corrode naturally and subsequently apply the sealant to stop the process at any point.
