Its a SA spec color actually. You know they made defenders there up to 2006, so I presume they did what they wanted with respect to color options. I think would also be cool to set a defender up with the BMW 2.8i like the SA spec trucks had.

The color is Cornish Cream, and yeah, its an old Rangie color. I think it suits the 110 though, kind of updates the look of the old series trucks, and is only subtly different than the NAS 110, being basically just a warmer shade of white.

I like to build things that the factory built, so the BMW has appeal for that reason. If it were me, I think I'd just get in touch with a SA wrecking yard and buy as many parts as possible from them. I'm sure the r380 has a different length input shaft, and I have not idea what the bellhousing or flywheel cover look like. It would also be nice to have the correct harness. The ideal sitation would be to get all the parts without actually shipping an engine, in order to save shipping cost. It might even be worth it to simply buy the correct input shaft and save shipping a trans.

It probably worth a trip to SA to check out. I've been wanting to get down there for a while. As a friend of mine once said "I dont want to learn Afrikaans, I just want to learn how to speak English with a South African accent."

Oh, I'm a BMW fan too, but my M88 is staying right where it is.

Ohhhhh.... Nice sixer Jim. I am always on the lookout for a little old lady with a dusty 2002 tucked in her garage, or a 3.0CSI, or a Series truck etc. etc... Not sure if lightning will strike twice though. Thats exactly how I found my 356 Porsche.

My NAS D90 is due for a paint job. The original color is Arles blue but someone did a crappy job (but using nice color scheme) repainting it into dark green/tan. They left all components in place and repainted over the old paint. Kinda half assed if you ask me. Needless to say it is peeling everywhere, there's poor masking and I also have some galvanic corrosion coming through.

Can anyone give me a range of how much a D90 paint job would cost? I'd like to know cheapest (but still acceptable) way vs full disassembly way (ECR style). Rough numbers are ok, I just need a ballpark.

sorry, I posted this on the Original Thread

" I did my 110 totally stripped for Painting ( now I did not pay what they would normally charge 10,500 if the need to strip down ) and 6,000 if you bring the vehicle stripped ).

Now mind you I did pay for the materials and it was in the tune of 1,800 when done ( paint, reducer, clearcoat, sand, primer, misc )

I did get my roof and gutters seam sealed, you can slide your finger in there and it is as smooth as the reast of the truck. "
