Spotted on Maui White D-90 SW.....

While heading home yesterday I saw a White D-90 SW heading into Maliko Gulch on Hana Hwy. I have been trying to touch base w the Defender owners on Maui and just keep missing them....GRRRR
If anyone knows any d-90 owners on Maui please let me know I would like to form a group of like minded individuals.
Thanks for the help.

Al,
Dumb island question for you, is it possible to have a Defender on one of the islands and keep it rust free?
I have heard that even if you do not drive in the surf that the salty air will rust the Defenders.
If so, what does one due to prevent the rust?
My wife has inquired about moving to HI, but I would need to find a job. I bet my NAS D110 would look good on one of the islands. Not that an AA Yellow '97 doesn't look good there! Love the 97 AAs...

We live on the edge of Haiku..it is a 2 season year, wet and dry. When the rainy season starts it dumps every nite. I think that since my defenders get rinsed so well it has certianly kept rust to a minimum. We did live in Kihei for a year and I think that is where the majority of the rust on my 95 occured. It is so close to the ocean and dry all year...the salt is everywhere. There is a Green soft top in Lahaina and it is starting to get rusty, probably due to the proximity to the ocean as well.

I had Piaa lites mounted on my 97 and just removed them. They were mounted for the past 8 years....they were literally rusting to the plastic covers!! That seems to be the worst of it right now.

Jobs are hard to figure here. When we moved I didnt have anything lined up. Now its been over 8 years and we are going strong. I say go for it!! We love it here.

Let me know if you need any info on Maui.

Aloha
Al

My grandmother lived in Honolulu since the early 60s. My grandfather was stationed there in WWII, and he is buried in some honorable military cemetery (would have to ask my dad where). My dad lived there for a few years. I have been there and to Kauai for our honeymoon. I think we would both be happy there.
Well if you know anyone that needs an econ/finance MBA guy/LR Defender enthusiast, let me know!
