Inspection Tips, please

Apologies if this has already been well covered before (I used the search function but couldn't find what I needed)...

Next week I'm having a 95 D90 inspected by my mechanic which will lead to me buying it if it all checks out. While he's a good general mechanic who's used to working on older cars and trucks, he's not a Defender expert.

The question is, what should he be looking for? Checklists, specific tests, photos with arrows or general advice much appreciated!

Cheers
Mark

RUST! Chassis, rear cross, footwells, bulkhead, etc. Everything else - in my opinion - can be fixed.

Where is it located? I urge you to fly out and look at it in person.

Thanks, Jason. Actually i'll be there in person as well since the seller is bringing it to my town. But I'm certainly no expert, hence this post!

I already told you in your other thread, but come to the jersey meetup this Sunday and we'll SHOW you.

Rolf will be there in a beautiful beluga black D90, as will I and a few others. I posted the link in your other thread.

I appreciate the invite to the Huntley Tavern. I'll try and make it.

Thanks also for your offer. Maybe we can discuss on Sunday.

Best
