1986 110 "Black 'N Blue"

So I sold my ExMOD 110 3dr. Have always wanted to get into a 5 door an it looks like I have a good start with lots of little things already completed. I purchased the 86 from Samer (member). Truck will show up tomorrow. As usual I have started to collect parts and conducted research on the new to me configuration (3.9 EFI/LT85) first V8 Defender.

Next event will be MAR next month. After I service the fluids/ujoints/maint etc I plan on the following:
Bumper
Recovery points
Winch
Sliders
Tire carrier
powerwash/undercoat
Seat Covers or seats (nice to have but $$)
Some sort of Stereo


The elephant in the room for me is the chequer plate. The side steps and sills will come off with the sliders but I will still have door bottoms/quarters/and fender tops. The body is solid underneath but the plate has been riveted AND glued, so not worth removing.

Take a look at the pics (bad photo edit) and tell me your thoughts. I can leave raw aluminum, paint match (Stratos blue) or paint black.

Not sure if I will leave wheels alone or paint black or..

Congrats!!! I struggled with this on my 110 and decided, with a white roof, keep the the 5-bar silver. Since I wanted the roof the same as the body, I liked the 5-bar black. Also think the boost wheels should stay as is, either way.

Just me thinking!!!!

Thanks Victor. looked at your build again last night. Man, looking good! I am leaning hard towards leaving the wheels alone especially if I leave the 5 bar silver.

Adam, you change trucks like women change shoes!

However, your trucks are all pretty good looking.

I'm going to say this quietly.... I think black Boosts look pretty good.

Plasti-dip/Plasti-cote

Haha. Always been shooting for a 5 door. Hard to get a good one under a budget but I'm there.

That plasti dip has impressed me. I might do some stuff and peel off if I don't like it.

The nice thing about leaving it raw is it won't change. Painting in place will likely chip/flake and that is a pita, IMO. Maybe save that time and effort for another day, after you've gotten good and cozy with that V8/85. (I liked the several V8/85's I brought in a few years ago. Fun to drive)

The boosts look right inside 35's. Just say'n ;0)

I'd leave it, that truck actually looks pretty good with it. Same goes for the wheels.


Congrats on the truck. I want a 5 door bad, but really don't feel like starting another project now.

I would ditch the alloys and I'm assuming spacers based on how they stick out. Put on any steel wheels, even silver disco spare wheels will keep the color theme but put the wheels back where they belong and make the turck's lower half look less puffy/bulgey with that amount of chequer plate.

Adam, looks great....glad you're giving Samer's 110 a good home. If it were me, I'd paint chequer plate to match body color, and then do either black or white Wolfs and ditch the alloys (I actually think white wolfs would look good picking up the white roof color). You should know the deal by now, Boosts = NYC crew, Wolfs = NoVa crew!

Great looking truck Adam! I would go in one of two directions.
1. As Jason said white Wolfs to match the roof and paint the 5-bar to match the body color.

2. Or as Carlos said black 5-bar and rims (black Wolfs-no silver ring Boosts) and paint the 5-bar black.


The problem with all that silver 5-bar shit and the silver Boosts is is that is all your eye is drawn to. In pictures no. 5 & 6 you actually see the truck, however, in the other pictures all you see is 5-bar and rims, you don't really see the rest of the truck.

P.S. I was wondering if maybe after MAR I could park my truck in your drive way for a few weeks and you work your OCD Rover magic on it in your spare time? It's been at Uncle Doug's farm for awhile now and well...not so much.

Adam, if you decide to go with the Blue, the color code is LRC327 (JCP). It is called Stratos Blue/Tasmin Blue. You can get it made up at any decent automotive paint supply store. I used The PPG brand.

Well the aluminum is now black. I used plastidip as touch ups are easy, it sticks very well, and I can peal it off. Messed up a panel and I pealed it right off to start over.


Stereo installed and vdo gps sender, speedo now works.

Looks very good with the black aluminum Adam. You might consider plastidipping one of the wheels as well to see how they look. Might surprise you. You never know.
