Looking for info on the 50th Anniversary Defender

Looks like the d-90 is staying with me after all. I am sick of sterile white. I am looking to re=paint soon and am looking for the atlantic green LR paint code (similar to the series pastel green) or in depth pictures of the truck. Is there a 50 club like the defender black club? Any info would help. Thanks

Eric, when I was trying to get modern and correct mudflap kits I wanted to use the 50th as an example, so DAP got in touch with their contact overseas and he looked at the 50th parts list, etc. to order the kit from that. They could prolly get you the paint or paint code for the 50th as well. They're at www.dap-inc.com in case you don't have it.

Oh, I just realized you might be talking about the Heritage, not the 50th?

Wicks,

Yes! The Heritage edition! That's the color. The 50 seems to be an exact copy of our 97's!

Nice looking truck. The rims and top have to be limestone though. Especially the rims. Those painted rims wouldn't last too long off road. Galv the bumper, brush bar and cage, and viola, that is what I am going for. What color is that called?

Yeah, all the galvo on that one is very tasteful. They did the old range rover treatment on the wheels. Agreed, I would have done as steel wheels painted to match the top in the series style. And the side panels (not the rear door) should be the limestone as well.

Found this on Google search re color: V154 FVY0 TD5 Heritage Limited Edition. Atlantic green (light). 29000 miles 1 owner. FSH. As new. Green leather/carpets very special rare Defender

Heritage Defender was available in Atlantic Green and Bronze Green only. Wheels on the Heritage were colour matched to body, likewise the hardtop side panels should be body coloured. Only the roof panel is Limestone.
Grille was a one off especially for Heritage models, although i understand it's still available through LR dealers. Friend of mine bought one for his non-heritage D90 and has the part number if you're interested.

Kev,

Yeah, I'd appreciate the heritage grill part number. I am leaning toward the pastel green at the moment... The willow green and coniston green are fairley common here.

Thanks,

EwS
