Keith, have you already decided what your response will be when (inevitably) a customer walks in looking at one of your original/unrestored NAS 90s and makes you a crazy over-the-top offer to buy yours instead......what is your answer going to be?

nah... i really love it. maybe in a couple of years. i really want a defender 110 3 door wagon with the same set up. i think the kids will like that more than a LOUD soft-top.

good question. If it were me well... There is something to be said for telling Chuck Schick i.e. crazy over-the-top offer guy (I can see this Turkey now.. sweater over the shoulders, orange tags, pressed pants, ironed golf shirt - tucked in - collar popped, a brightly colored belt, loafers, no socks, no tan, on a call, headed for Nantucket with latte in hand)
No, Sorry Sir you'll have to find another - mine is not for sale....

I have seen Ron's truck up close and personal - they did a fantastic job!

Hey man! Take it easy on the Vineyard Vines set, that's Keiths bread-n-butter client base in Swellesley.

Also, just noticed your new sig line Ruf, nice!

Keith,

She looks great sir! Always glad to hear someone sharing their positive experiences!

I'm really itching to get another Defender and do a rebuild on it myself. There's one 90 in particular that I've had my eye on for awhile now.....

Great looking truck! And ditto's on Safari HP, they just had my truck and went above and beyond to sort out some steering issues I had. (Rick Newman was my service advisor - great guy) And while they do some incredible work on the fancy schmancy high end stuff, they also bend over backwards to keep a poor day laborer like me on the road. Just an awesome experience doing business with them.

I'll jump on the bandwagon and also say that it's a pleasure working with Stephen at SHP, stand up guy and fine organization,

I'll chip in my .02 cents on SHP as well...

A few years back, I drove my college kid down to UCF with my 06 RR. I had just installed rotors before the trip and 1,000 miles later, my brakes started to cause the whole truck to shake violently. I called SHP and Stephen took my call. He had me in his shop just to ensure that my wheel won't just break free from the vehicle and confirmed it was warped rotors. Called Les at RN and new rotors were waiting for me when I got back.

Stephen even offered his other truck as a "loaner" for me to use if I needed a vehicle. Anyway, all around great guy and he even gave me a short ride around his shop on his pink panther defender!

I have to say that Stephen has always been very helpful. He is a great resource that is always willing to help He called me yesterday to tee me up with a business/networking opportunity.. I think that there are folks out there trying to imitate Safari HP but duplication is and will be a challenge.

SafariHP just finished up my 110. Great job and super user friendly. I have my 109 there now and continue to use them for all parts and service.

Truck looks good now that you tied it all together. I assume the weird thing in your trailer hitch is to help your kids get in?

A hitch step that big also offers up a lot of parking lot defense as well without damaging your NAS rear step. Lookin' good! Slick front fogs! Very well sorted truck!

i have joined that dreaded NYC boost club of boston.

8 months later and still doing great. i have fiddle with this and that over the time period, a couple of oil changes and nothing seems to be out of the ordinary. had a check engine light come on and off, swapped some wires and stopped driving around on an empty tank of gas and it has not been on since.

i have swapped through 3 set of wheels: freestyles, powder coated freestyles and now the boosts. they are the cleanest looking and i dont look like a thug driving a black truck with black wheels anymore. [i think the people at my kids school were looking at me weird for a while]

thank you again to stephen and the whole team. but please people stop send stuff to him, i want to do another project and you are screwing it up for me.
