Style up your Wings Now this is tricky from an installation point of view. You have to get a screwdriver (the tool not the orange and vodka cocktail, although that’ll do just as well). Then you have to unscrew seven screws holding on each of your wingtop vents. Then you have to take out the old, buckled and beaten original plastic items, and replace with these seriously smart CNC milled aluminium replacements. They’re powdercoated black to match the originals but are much more durable and a lot smarter. Now comes the tricky part. You have to now screw back in the seven screws. Where, I hear you ask. Back into the original holes. It’s tricky, but we’re working on a step-by-step video to help confused Defender owners. These very smart wingtop vents are made by Series Defender Outfitters and they cost $190 a pair and come as a set. Naturally they’ll fit left- or right-hand drive vehicles. If you want to freshen your wings, then the thing to do is have a look at

can be put together in about 60 minutes – the new Bearmach Roof Rack will be a great companion if you’re looking to pack up and head off to another climate. They are all manufactured right here in the UK, will keep weight to a minimum with their aluminium construction, plus anodised in silver or black for extra durability. They are available for Defender 90s and 110s, Discovery 1, 2, 3 and 4s, with a RRP starting from £649. And as we said, you can now get a fresh-looking rack for your baby Range Rover.

One of the neat features about the racks is they come with horizontal slats, making for easy removal when you wish to call upon your, possibly intact, sunroof.

And it’s worth keeping an eye out on all of Bearmach’s expanding roof rack accessories, with the list already including a bottle opener, a twin power outlet kit and a selection of eyebolts.
