Presented by E.C.D. Automotive Design – Exploring new horizons with the recent announcement of bespoke Jaguar E-Type builds, the automotive professionals at E.C.D. Automotive Design is proud to showcase its massive new headquarters in Kissimmee, Florida. Starting its humble beginnings from a one-bay warehouse doing custom Land Rover Defender modifications, the team marks its monumental success by officially moving into the 100,000-square-foot facility that is now dubbed the “Rover Dome”. The construction process took over 13 months and incorporated design influence from the passionate team at E.C.D., maintaining its focus on exceptional quality and attention to detail to ensure the perfect work environment.
The new and improved Rover Dome brings this industry leader to the next stage of its growth journey, using an organized system of departments that streamline the process of preserving these automotive icons. It all begins at the upgraded design studio, where clients can sit and envision their dream configuration using state-of-the-art rendering software. This area also doubles as the showroom, where a display of gorgeous E.C.D. builds that are either ready to ship out to their forever home or are primed for resale.
With doubled warehouse capacity and a scaled-up dual production line, E.C.D. is now able to complete over 100 one-of-one vehicles a year under its roof. The South and North lines each have specialized focuses and are deciphered using floor decals inspired by the London Underground’s distinct roundel signs. The North line is responsible for vintage Defender and old Range Rover Classic builds, while the South line takes on the task of special editions, Jaguar E-Type builds and tuning up vehicles sent back for auto warranty. From engine installation to electronics to upholstery and more, each department consists of team members that are experts in their practice.
The most outstanding of all is the Rover Dome’s half-million-dollar, state-of-the-art paint lab, complete with a prep station, a paint booth, infrared, heat lamps and more. With paint supplied by global color leader PPG, the paint specialists can paint-to-sample any shade. Each body panel is prepped, primed, polished and inspected with a magnifying glass to ensure a smooth, flawless finish. Finally, an attached Driver’s Club meets any and all post-sale client service needs from storage to maintenance and upgrading. The Driver’s Club hosts exclusive member days and events where E.C.D. drivers can share their passion for one-of-one custom-built vehicles. You can view E.C.D.’s expert craftsmen and technicians hard at work via six live cameras, streamed daily on E.C.D. Live. View all of E.C.D.
