send it to LRNA and let it speak for itself about the gas engine and water= no good, if that was diesel it would of had a way better chance if not completing it.

If the water was that deep it should be fine. Someone here had his 90 caught in a hurricane with water midway up the doors and after posting here and following directions, it turned out fine.

I feel for the guy with the 110, but what about those mansions. That just sucks all around!

He's lucky it wasn't salt water. Mine was in hurricane Ike last year and was in 38" of Gulf/Bay water mixed with mud, oil, sewage, etc..... I took all the advice I was given and for around 2 grand (new starter, gearbox/tranny/differential fluids, oil, etc..) got it back into respectable condition.. you would never guess what it had been through..frame is good with no rust and it's been a year...

Here's a pic I took today.

Michael, that was one of my favorite threads here when you got her back without any major issues. I am glad to see she is still going strong!

Hey Michael,
Just wondering what trouble you had to go through with your insurance company. Were you stretched to get completed all that you thought/knew you needed done with the budget given by your insurance company, or was the experience fairly smooth? Were you able to repair what was needed without a lengthy review from your insurance company?

Hey Joshua... I didn't have any problems at all. I have Fidelity Mutual and they were great..I had the repairs done, they reviewed the receipts and sent me a check (less my $500 deducable). No one ever looked at it and they didn't even offer to TOTAL it.. lol....
Even FEMA wanted to give me money but I declined.. The FEMA guy was all over the Defender.. I didn't ask for FEMA help but my house was in a Federally declared disaster area so they had to come walk through.. When the inspector got to drowned Defender in the muddy smelly garage I thought he was going to cry.. He was genuinely upset and didn't want to do anything but save the D90.. It was weird...

LOL. My sense is that LRNA could not care less.

I can't help but think that, in retrospect, the NAS Defender era will be looked back upon by LRNA as nothing more than an annoying thorn in their side... and the more years that pass between it and the present, the better.

Because they have better cars to be prouder of like the freelanders?

There are not all that many people left at LRNA or whatever they are called these days, that were around during the defender era. Most of the ones I know left after being tortured by Ford and Jaguar Policies.

Camel Trophy, TReK, G4, Great Divide, Special Vehicles, Defender (military conotation?), Discovery-for real?, Classic- is it?, etc- read about those in the archives on D-90, and why do they call it "D-90"???? They even used beam axles back then- with springs!!!! What a joke.... glad there aren't many left :-) - especially after the CFC program.
