Best Defender galvanised chassis supplier?

Post by clanmike » Mon Sep 02, 2019 4:22 pm

The time has come to seriously consider replacing the chassis on my 1998 110 300tdi Defender (I’m fed up with the annual pre mot welding routine)
There appears to be 3 main suppliers Richards, Marsland and Shielder but who’s best?
An internet search reveals disgruntled buyers of all 3 with one taking the supplier concerned to court.
Has anyone on here done it and who supplied the chassis and were there any issues with their chosen supplier or the chassis itself?
Thanks in anticipation

I don’t have a Landy at the moment, but in my day with them it was definitely Richards.
