Let me know if you want to sell the plastic vent covers. Looks like you have nothing to attach them to.

Those pics make me think of the video someone posted here with Hitler saying next time he gets a Land Rover "Just send me a pile of rust and eliminate the middle man". Classic

Seems like it would be more cost effective to buy a new truck.

It is a quote from a YouTube video of the movie Down Fall:

By the way, is your avatar a self portrait?


Mike,
There is a guy down the street from me that has a NAS D110 with a badge of 10/25, and it is all Alpine White. I wonder why there would be two with the same badge...

Funny you say that, I just looked at the registry and according to the VINs (plate, T support decal and chassis) this truck should be #12/25, but it has a #10/25 plate on it (just double checked).

If you see the guy down the street it would be interesting to see if his VIN matches the one for #10/25.

Looks like a LR screw up.

Because it's quite obvious you're hot. It may be your Defender but somehow I doubt it. I know for sure I am not the only one who noticed your portfolio . You take nice pics!

Looks like a LR screw up.
The guy has had the 110 for at least 6 years and I have left two notes two on his windshield. Onetime asking if he wants to sell, and another time telling him about our local LR club. He never replied... It sits outside and needs some help. I will see what I can do as far as capturing the VIN.

Always nice to see a pretty face on the D-90 Source. Let me be the first to welcome you.

#10/25 should have this VIN if you get a chance to take a look:

SALDH1285PA922201

93 CDN 10/25 Alpine White Notes: Garmin GPS, BFG MT's, Jerry Cans, Rear mounted Halogen light,Winch,dog guard

I also wonder why CDN 10/25 was built so far out of sequence. It goes
1-9
then 12, then 11 and so on. Then #10 is built between #20 and #22.

Maybe someone realized they had already put a #10 on one and tried to figure it out.

Just about.

Lots of grinding, cutting, torch and sawz-all work until we end up with what we can save. The rest goes in the dumpster.
