Finding the perfect car for a trip like this is not easy.. it is in fact very difficult.
We both agreed that a Land Rover Defender was what we were looking for. We drover around the whole of Holland looking at different Defenders. In the end we found this very good looking guy. We agreed not to do too much on the car itself, trusting that is is capable in his own way of doing what we will do in South America. We did do some adjustments to prepare the car for the trip, mainly to increase the safety and security, and to make sure we use the space available as good as possible.
Adding some security to the back windows:
Removing the backseats to create space, and lining the back with something that is easier to keep clean than carpet:
Adding some isolation material to hopefully reduce the noise from the engine:
