Eric with your tech/fabbing skills, you could import a tired old 110 from England relatively inexpensively (~$10k-$15k) and then polish it up. It'll be RHD, though, and I heard the parts to convert it to LHD are getting very rare/expensive.
The NAS 110s have got to be one of the most ridiculously overvalued vehicles out there. A friend of mine drives an NAS 110 that's a total beater and it could still pull $25-28k easily. I think the prices are going to fall through the floor pretty soon when we're finally allowed to import "modern" Defenders...
