Our process


Built With Pride & Precision

Paragon was born out of the shared vision of two passionate enthusiasts who sought to create a hassle-free experience for those in search of a high-quality, custom Land Rover Defender. With a deep appreciation for the iconic design and a commitment to excellence, they set out to craft vehicles that meet the needs of discerning drivers without compromising on quality, performance, or style. Today, Paragon continues to embody this spirit, offering clients an unparalleled level of craftsmanship and personalized service to deliver a truly unique and unforgettable experience.

Embrace the collaborative spirit at Paragon, where our expert team will work closely with you to design your dream custom Land Rover Defender. Whether you find inspiration from our existing builds or start with a blank slate, we'll help you craft a personalized vehicle that reflects your style and passion. By understanding your intended use, we'll ensure your Paragon Defender is tailored to your specific needs, combining creativity and engineering excellence to bring your vision to life.
Our search begins for the perfect donor vehicle, ensuring authenticity, structural integrity, and proper titling. Our extensive experience allows us to identify and evaluate potential candidates before approving them for purchase and restoration.
Back at our facility, your Land Rover is carefully dismantled, and the original steel frame is inspected, realigned, and reinforced for durability. This crucial step establishes a solid foundation for our craftsmen to work their magic.

“We were essentially the Instagram police and called out fake influencers left, right and centre. It was fun and all, but there is only so many bikini chicks you can look at on Instagram before you start losing your mind.”

Mechanical Restoration
Our mechanical team meticulously rebuilds and refines every drivetrain component, ensuring top performance and reliability. Our engine specialists have decades of experience, allowing them to expertly restore and enhance your Defender's power-plant with modern upgrades when desired.

“After this, we both took up golf on during the week and started eating fancy dinners at the local Country Club... Ha. This is not what happened at all. We suck at golf and love eating Guzman Y Gomez.”

Your Defender's iconic silhouette takes shape as our team assembles brand-new body panels, aligning them with precision for a better-than-factory finish.

Our commitment to quality is evident in our custom bulkheads and corrosion-resistant gaskets, ensuring a lasting impression.

Our paint specialists elevate your Defender's appearance with a flawless finish. Each panel is carefully prepared, primed, and coated with your chosen color, offering a stunning array of options and finishes that showcase your unique style.
Your vehicle comes together through a systematic process that ensures quality control and minimizes damage. Custom wiring harnesses, tailored soundproofing, and bespoke interiors are carefully installed, revealing your Defender's distinct personality.
Our 250-mile testing program, split into five sessions, ensures your Defender is fine-tuned and free of any issues. Once it has passed stringent water tests, received certification, and met our quality control standards, your vehicle will be prepared for delivery.
Our handover specialist will guide you through every aspect of your Paragon Defender, ensuring you understand its features and capabilities. We take pride in our ongoing relationships with clients, offering comprehensive warranty and lifetime support for maintenance and upgrades. Welcome to the Paragon family!

“Relume was an opportunity for us to build a profitable business, not a startup that bleeds cash, whilst doing what we love to do. It also allows us to learn about all types of businesses and the problems they deal with. These are all opportunities that we could potentially solve for in the future. For now, our goal is simple, we want to build a kickass business which means we really want our customers and the Webflow community to succeed too.”

Dan, Co-founder of Relume
