1994 Beluga D90 - #1930

Hello all,

Some may be semi-familiar with me but Im relatively new to the forum as I just purchased my first defender about a week ago. It came from Colorado Springs, CO. It was a 1 owner car with 40 thousand miles from new. It came with a few mods (Winch, bumper, 33's) but I plan to do some slight improvements(upgraded shafts, 4.11's, and 35's w/ beadlocks) to it throughout the next few months. So I figured I'd make a thread and show it off as is, and add to it when the work starts.

10'' travel bilsteins and 3'' springs have already been ordered from rovertym, along with the purchase of 5 beadlocks from ECR. 5 35'' km2's will soon be on the way.

Anyway, here are a couple pictures of the collection.





Cheers,

Pat

Some pictures from wheeling this weekend. Had a blast, almost put it on its side once, and put a hell of a beating on the cage on trees.

35'' km2's have been ordered and are on transit!

Cheers,

Pat

Yes sir, it has the leather seats and all the stainless accents. The seller it was one of the last 200 off the line in 1994, therefore it was black, and came with all the leather.

Heres a couple videos...

Is that Jeff G's former vehicle? It has to be. Sad to hear it left the state but happy to see it went to a good home.
Enjoy!

Looking good! What trail was that video from? I don't recognize it (unless it's going up snakebite or u-turn).

If you want to try out those new tires at Gore, my local offroad club is sponsoring an event there on the 17th/18th of July.

Nice looking truck and great to see it on the trail. Post some pics of the new wheels and tires and let us know how you like the KM2s (I've been thinking of getting them when my SSR's wear out)

Picts necessary with new tyres on it ;-)
Can you measure them in real on wheel, out diameter and wide (and weight), and tell us about your feeling both on and off road?

Thx

Click on the calendar of events to see the dates of events - you are welcome to join us on any open event (which is most of them). It would be nice to have more rovers and defenders in particular on the trails.

Finally finished today. Took about 5 hours by myself and with hand tools. This Virginia heat made it seem much worse than it was. Cant wait to get the new black top on ( Thanks Steve, I'll call you tomos ) and take it out on the trails. Anyway, on to the photos.

Cheers,

Pat
