Rust is one of the worse things that could happen to your vehicle, or is it? Netherlands-based Heritage Customs offers genuine rust parts that do not degrade your vehicle’s integrity but add to the car’s cool quotient. While this patina would be almost impossible to form on a modern-day vehicle, it certainly looks promising. So how do you intentionally ‘Rust’ your beloved Land Rover?
One way is to grab hold of the Magic Metal Pack offered by Heritage Customs. This pack includes two side vents and two bonnet treadplates. The package costs EUR 1,395, and Heritage Customs offers a EUR 500 cashback if the customer sends the original parts to them. That is 2x side vents and 2x bonnet plates.
Rust Vs. Patina
The patina on the parts is created by hand using their unique process that the brand has not disclosed. But we suspect apart from sandblasting, Heritage Customs also uses some help from nature to oxidise the parts. This gives the parts a unique vintage look enhancing the vehicles look. Heritage Customs can apply a thin layer of aluminium, brass, bronze, titanium, zinc, or even gold, to the parts. These parts then assume the same flexibility as the parent material.
Heritage Customs also offers interior parts custom made for the new Defender. Also, the brand produces custom alloy wheels to enhance the look of the vehicle. Custom exterior and interior features for other Defender models are also available through the brand’s official website.
