Talking My 90's history in a single pic

Today I decided to paint the checkerplate on my truck from bare aluminum to black to match the rest of the truck. Now's it's all black and green. No silver/aluminum in sight.
The best part was when I removed the driver's side rear corner protector. Underneath it I found a history of my truck from the time I put that plate on in mid '04 until now. Good times all of them. That sand storm at Padre Island National Seashore in late '05 was brutal, that's for sure.

I couldn't bring myself to clean it off so after painting I gingerly replaced the panel without disturbing the history. I'll let the plate sit for a few more years and remove it just to see what it's collected.

Been missing you and your guitar on the last few trips. We need to get you down this way again soon.

Tony,
That is an excellent shot. If you have a few others, plus the before and after I would put them together and write a bit about it. Send it to Land Rover Monthly or other.

Great shot and what owning a Defender is all about.
