I really hope your kid doesn't look like me either. I swear I pulled out.

For months I have been trying to convince chris at badger to make brake rotors so that horsey would buy them but he pointed out to me, even if horsey buys them odds are he won't install them. I am really looking forward to the day horsey rhinolines a baby seat in his shitbox. Hopefully badger can make a cover for that too.

horsey

I new I smelled a rat. I think Chris' next big adventure should be rhino lined horsey shit box or RLHSB with the outside captivated in the finest top cloth money can buy and look the RLHSB even matches rovers north part number. I can't bag on Josh yet as I am earning my wings on the forum before I go spouting off. Besides I can't spell and I suck at shipping anything on time.

I'm still confused why you think I don't have new rotors. If memory serves me, this is what I had bought...got it cheaper than that from them though after calling them.

They are taking it from your line in a previous post....
"I've done the pads (yes, they actually WERE easy), no rotors yet.

I would recommend a helper for bleeding the brakes though. I had never had experience doing that (aside from being the brake "pumper") and having someone who knew what he was doing was very helpful. Don't want to mess around with your brakes!"

I used one of those power bleeders and the bently manual. easy to do and might as well change to fluid possibly to ate super blue

Just because you own them and use them as a booster seat so you can look like a "Big Boy" at the dinner table doesn't mean they are actually on the truck touching your new brake pads.

I think Thomas just sold you out as to the reason why. Pretty sure he was there when you didn't do them.

Now please tell us how after you did the pads one day, you took the time to pull it all part to do the rotors. Does badger make a hub nut tool? I assume you used the tiny jack that came with your car and did it front of cvs on washington street?

FYI- Land Rover Harrisburg has a AA yellow soft top 97 for too much money for the condition, but the condition is not terrible. Also, my sister's shop, Treasured Motorcars, recently had a customer looking for a new home for their station wagon. Don't know the details or dollars, but give her a call. 410.833.2329 Allison Timms.
So, what makes the AA Defender at Harrisburgs condition not worth the $35k? That would be helpful to compare to other listings i see.

This is the link to the truck being referred to, not one i am looking to buy, just want to know what makes it overpriced for future reference.

So, based on these pictures, how would you guys rate this 90 and how much should it sell for? This is pretty much what I will be looking for; 97 ST,Red, about 80k miles, how does this stack up?

Looks nice, but those are all glamour shots. Get some real pics of the rust-prone areas.

As horsey said. This is what I would do:
Get shots of bottom of doors, footwells, frame, gas tank skid.
Run carfax
Talk to dealer about it
If it is something you want have an independent place evaluate it.

And look for brand new parts that have been installed, especially big suspension pieces such as a control arm. They don't go bad unless the owner bent it and then you can ask what the h*ll happened.
Getting back to new parts installed makes me wonder what went wrong for the part to need replacement? New heads or rebuilt heads or a new radiator...Question would be well was the engine overheating or overheated which could lead to reducing the life of the engine.
