Looks like its had an easy life. What's your plan for it aside from I recall you actively looking for fender arches.

I bought it back from the same guy I sold it to. My brother and I drove from NC to Detroit to pick it up a few months ago.

As someone who was able to buy back my first D90, I applaud the effort!

I don't know what to do with it. Here's what I've done so far...

9/99- purchased salvaged from maxcar in Atlanta. My brother Will and I rebuilt it in my parents basement with an engine we got from Dale.
1/00-drove it back to college after the holidays. I was a sophomore.
10/01-Drove it to park city UT(long story). Worked at Deer Valley.(to get it to start on really cold mornings I would pull the inertia switch, killed the fuel pump, then start it for 60 seconds with no fuel, then push the switch in. Worked like a charm.
2/02-stripped it down in my driveway(headlights, rollcage...everything) drove to Maaco in Salt Lake. They painted it Wimbledon White. Up until then the truck was green and the front primer black.
4/02-Easter Jeep Safari. Golden Spike Trail! See avatar.
5/02- drove nonstop from Luna NM to Asheville NC.
6/02- back to college(Lees McRae)
12/03- graduated
1/04- Went to work at Land Rover Driving School at Biltmore.
2/05-Bought a sailboat in Mobile AL. Drove down from Asheville weekly in the Defender.
9/05- sold Defender to put money into boat.

Went sailing.

8/12- Brother called up and said the truck was on Craigslist in Michigan. They don't call him the Defender Ninja for nothing.

The guy I sold the truck to took it apart almost immediately after he got it. He was a marine and unfortunately after a couple tours in Iraq he came home, got out, but could not get going on the project again. A storage unit full of parts(flares, lights..etc) lapsed and was auctioned of. He'd only put 3000 miles on the truck before he gave it to his brother in Detroit. After shipping it up there, it then sat in his garage for 5 years.

The day we picked it up...it started, and I drove it onto the trailer.

The truck is quite roadworthy now. Many thanks to Larry at British 4x4 in Durham for replacing most of the rubber.

This is where the project started....

So the question is, are you going back to green or white?
