They seemed to be in pretty decent shape upon inspection but I guess I will move this project to the top of my list!

Welcome to the board, please remove your pants and take a seat in the mud pit.

They always seem to be in perfect shape until the pinhole leak pops open and another D90 becomes a Rover-Que.

I read just about every thread here and decided to remove mine. I decided that for a 90 in a moderate climate - the rad oil cooler was overkill.

If it was a diesel, or a 110/130 or I lived on the equator - I may have left it connected. But for the piece of mind it gave me to remove it - that's what I decided to do...

Rad Defender William! love the classic color combo! Great rover, horrible parking job. I'm actually making a coffee table book on pictures of parking like this, can I use this pic? It'll be a nice coffee table book. comes with a note pad of fake parking citations.

Thanks and of course you can use this picture in your book! In fact I'll go grab some pictures of my co-workers parking finesse if your interested...
