CoolAir Logan AC system was successfully installed last week. They did have to modify and custom engineer the mounting brackets. The company completed the installation in under a week. Truck is now awaiting the delivery of the exmoor leather trim seats, windows and other misc items to be completed. I will post some more photos shortly of interior.

Badges

What is OEM accurate for badges on a ROW 1991 Defender 110? I am planning on the following but am curious what it came with from the factory in 1991.

- I was planning to put the "Defender" plate on the spot right BELOW the bonnet

- One of these metal plates on rear right side of the rear door. The last one that says "Station Wagon". http://www.falon-nameplates.co.uk/shop.htm

As always, appreciate your help.

For placement and reference I Googled 1991 Defender pictures and also searched eBay for brochures. Rovers North has the Defender 110 sticker and the Land Rover badge for the back right side so I'm sure since yours is still overseas you should be able to find them locally. I made a best guess on the exact placement but it can't be any worse than the factory. That Station Wagon badge is cool I may have to get one of those as well, thanks for the link.

That's true but it still looks cool.
I also just found the 50th anniversary badge I got back in 1998 so I think that may go on my truck. The metal badges are the best looking IMHO as they look like the early series badging.

Truck is pretty much done. I decided to hold off on putting any badges on until it arrives stateside. It should be on a boat next week.

Turned out very nice. Any interior shots available? It'll be interesting to hear how much attention this gets at port. Doing RORO?

The CET team just had a field day with mine and it was just a really clean all original truck.

Learning a lot in this process. I just learned that the rivets on the Defender were left unpainted on the rear doors whereas the other rivets were painted as in the below photo. Learned that the triangle panel is installed last so not painted.

Another comment regarding the badges. As far as I can tell, the below photos is the factory badging for a 1991 Defender 110. Let me know if you disagree.

Now I can't decide if i like it or not. I think i might prefer the look of the non-factory appropriate metal badge. Or I may just go sans badges/lettering altogether.

that sticker was not likely available in 91.

I think that is the correct sticker on the green 110. For 91' D90 its like that.

My bad then. I think I was confusing it with another decal that was on the later 300tdi's and early Pumas.

Found this re this decal;

Undercarriage Rust

Hi everyone. I would like to get your opinions on undercarriage rust. My truck is all done and I was looking through some photos of the completed project. Everything looks amazing and I am very happy with the speed and level of detail of restoration project!! They have done a great job!

The only thing that caught my eye is some rust on certain components of the undercarriage. My contractor was going to waxoil the entire undercarriage and i asked him to keep it limited to the chassis so as to minimize mess on areas that shouldn't be waxoiled (the wheels, brakes, etc). I am now regretting that direction I gave them. It just pains me to see photos like these on what is otherwise a pristine truck. The entire undercarriage was powerwashed but not brushed or soda washed.

Attached are some photos of the waxoil (looks like a good job done) and the rust areas. Keep in mind this is a pretty high end restoration (although NOT frame off) so I think the tolerance for rust should be relatively low.

I'm looking for some feedback on the severity of the rust and best course of action. If the consensus is that it's no big deal, then i will just let it go. As far as I can tell the options are:

a) have them waxoil the remainder of the undercarriage - estimated to be around 9 hours of work/cost
b) Is rust bad enough to have any of these components replaced?
c) have the rust wire brushed or any other treatment?
d) Do nothing and perhaps handle stateside (truck is scheduled to be shipped this week)
e)) any other ideas

I've seen new trucks with similar rust. It's all minor. What floors me is you restored the vehicle and left the old springs on.
