Hi guys, New here to the forum so thought I would share my project that I just purchased!! It's a 1988 defender 90 that came from a guy who started a ground up restoration but typical didn't have the funds to finish it so I fortunately ended up with a pretty sweet truck that doesn't need to much work no pics before the ones listed..
It was originally a 90 County hard top that had 2 owners from new with paperwork the second owner stripped down to the chassis and bulkhead cleaned up repaired and painted he put back together with new outriggers new cross members and completely restored the bulkhead and painted. I have now decided to covert into mohair soft top do a little more paint work and trim it out in leather..
I have purchased some new OEM TD5 Alloy wheels, Puma Hood, LR Diamond plate kit, side steps and mud flaps along with a whole pile of mechanical parts - Springs, Shocks, bushing kit, Discs, Pads, Timing Belt Kit and much more all arrived Friday
It has the 2.5 TD motor I know it doesn't have the top speed of the V8 however I do prefer it when off roading much more control and power where you need it..
The truck is currently in the UK at my second house if you where wondering why some of the background didn't look US native however I will be shipping it over to my beach house in Ocean City, MD when completed in a few weeks for some summer fun.. Enjoy the pics.. I will post some more pics as I progress over the next couple of weeks.. Tnx for looking.. ;-)
