I am making myself useful Horsey. You spend you time researching everyone elses truck. I spend my time learning how to fix my own and mocking you.

We're all useful in our own ways. In the Rover community it all comes back around eventually.

Like if I ever need to tint out my truck to look like P Diddy's, I'll contact you for the great job you obviously did on the 110, or if I ever need my bulkhead repairs to look like bondo was slathered on like iceing by the runner-up on The Cake Boss, I'll ask for pictures of your bulkhead repairs. You'll be useful to me someday I'm sure.

Well horsey if you ever own a 110 and for some unknown reason have a child you will understand rovers have no UV glass or at least they didn't.

As for the bulkhead repair I will agree it was done terribly by a previous owner but the nice thing is since it is in one section I can remove the heater box and fix properly just like you can with any of your rhiunolined surfaces, oh wait....

Justin, you are not going to flip it. You are coming to the Defender darkside to start gaining some Defender street cred. Stop with this Disco nonsense!

I think it's hopeless. His forum name all over the place is Fivespddisco.
He would have to change it to something like Fivespd90.

All those guys at dweb would think he's making too much cash and upgrading to a 90

Justin would probably make that 90 into some kind of mall crawler anyway with an automatic trans.

Shams parted out a 90. Not saying it was this one. It was a rotten one though.

Justin you already know what my opinion is. You have been looking for a 90 to pimp....

There is a complete and nice 1995 D90 drivetrain in Niagara Falls if you need a motor etc.

Though the truck pictured used to be his, the VIN doesn't match up with the one I recall. My guess (i.e., theory) is that at some point this truck has been previously "salvaged" and issued a "non-rebuildable", "parts only" or "export only" title (also very common in FL). When I saw the truck at auction, I searched the VIN listed and saw where Shams had the VIN, title and bulkhead for sale at one point some time back awhile ago ( http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...bulkhead+title ), so perhaps it was bought and used as a "donor" to get this 90 "legal" again. Have you checked the frame horn to see if the number stamped there is the same as the dash plate or to see if it has been altered?
Just my $.02. Hope this helps.

Disclaimer: The statement above is a theory based on the information available. I have not taken the time to personally verify any of the above information.

Outside right behind the bumper right where the angle piece that juts below is. There should also be a sticker on the driver's side footwell on the left as you are sitting in the seat.

right about where the hole is but on the other side
