Is this rig anyone's here on the list? The chassis looked like I could eat dinner off it, it was that clean - I don't think I've ever seen one that clean in my life - showroom new. I want to know they're secret!

PS - looks like he had ECR's taillight upgrade...the old square lenses were sitting on the floor of the driverside.

Well, that looks more like it. Had a brand new specialty WA plate on it which could indicate a recent sale from CA.

If it is the same one, then since purchase the new owner has barfed more white paint over the rest of it (arches, crossmember, bumpers, added a white brush bar) and blinged up the wheels.

I wish I had Barry's knack for colorful, accurate descriptions... I'm not doing this thing justice.

Check out my sighting of this from a year ago:
http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...&postcount=488

Looks to be a dealer car, but I think more "dealer owned" than for-sale. Nice looking rig - honestly the cleanest Defender I had ever seen.

Ah, ok, so it is Arles. It has some bad things on it but pretty nice overall. I'm surprised Horsey didn't recognize this from his database.

Yup that was me. Saw the blue one and had to snag a spot next to it. Never saw the owner though

jakarta sightings

I am in Indonesia for work and stopped by the LR dealer in Jakarta. They had a defender "rough" edition in their showroom. Very cool truck, though I am not crazy about the grill and headlight surrounds. One of 300 I was told. I asked if it was a Puma and one guy there said, "no sir - its actually a defender". Classic.

They had several interesting trucks, including an early 3-axle RRC, several double cab 110s, a few modified 110s with no roofs and custom rollcages w/ sirens, and a stunning blue 90 wagon on boosts that had been hit in an accident and needed a few body panels replaced (cringe). I'll see if I can get some other photos posted.

Reese, I was at a parts shop here and they had the clear LED lights pictured above on the "rough" edition defender. They wanted about $175 per unit for Genuine.

------ Follow up post added October 15th, 2011 10:38 AM ------

Didnt ask about the price. It was sold.

Finally pulled a total stalker/Barry-move and stopped in to the house in Great Falls VA where I consistently see the black '94 ST NAS 90, and knocked on the door. Apparently the owner has had it since new in '94, and every time I've seen it the thing just sits outside under a tarp. I offfered to them to let me rescue it, and left my name/number/etc with them in the event that they sell it.

Damn - you've got some moxie. They do have a garage, as I recall, right?

Well, i have to admit, I've had three people stop by randomly to talk about my truck.
