I have the original #215/500 plate stored safely with the title. I just thought that it would be fun to put the 1/500 plate on. It is about a 15 min. job to switch it back...

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Did you punch the new plate or have it engraved?

TLR Land Rover?

Didn't that truck used to be decked out in Tennessee Land Rover Stickers and have a roof tent and all that?

Yes. I bought it from TLR in November 2006. TLR bought it from the original Oklahoma owner.
I was told that the original owner's house was hit by a tornado. All of the left side body panels had dents, but the right side was nice. The hood and roof had some hail damage too. We found a lot of glass during the disassembly.
The title is clean, and I am listed as the second owner.
Before the tornado I believe that this D110 was a 9.5/10. The original owner took very good care of it. I wanted a nice rust free D110 that I could change the color on. This D110 was a perfect candidate for a color change. At one time I wanted to restore it to factory, but I do not like white (sorry fellow Alpine White owners).

Follow-up Post:

Kyle Caskey and Kermit Krantz did most of the work. I helped where I could, but my main job was the logistics of the project. Ordering parts (genuine LR parts only), scheduling each step with third parties, ect.
Lindan Auto did the paint work, and High Performance Coatings powder coated the cage, sliders, and a few other bits. The owner of Lindan Auto is a good friend of Kermits, so special attention was given. But, they do top notch work on restoring classic cars. Lindan Auto works on all Land Rovers, and is a great independent shop alternative.
Kyle had just built a very large, very well equipped shop. Kermit's NAS D110 (#73/500) was parked in the shop next to mine the whole time as live a reference guide during the project (the parts book and shop manual help too). Kyle and Kermit have been around, owned, and worked on NAS Defenders since 1993. They are both very particular about their work.
We had a lot of fun with the project.

That was where I grew up. We called it the "Farm". We had Arabian horses and a few barn cats, which was about as close to a farm as we got. When I went off to college my parents sold it. The guy who bought the place from us sold it a few years ago to Johnson County Parks. It is now a 600 acre park in Kansas. When we owned it, it was only 90 acres. Johnson County Parks bought a few farms around the place expanding the property to 600 acres.

Jon,

This truck is awesome! I know this is an older thread but WOW! I plan to do this one day. I have a white 90 but I always wanted black. Couldn't find a nice one in my price range. The white has now grown on me with black trim. This is still the cream of the crop IMHO.

I pass other drivers now, and there is zero drive-train slack.
