Decked out with matching blue ski rack and bike racks mounted to the rear, four Hella LED spotlights in the front and two LED work lights in the back, a red Hi-Lift heavy duty jack and a winch, the Defender is primed for mountains and beaches alike. Project Catamount sits on 16-inch wheels painted Chawton White to match the custom build’s roof and offset the silver hardware.
