Cool- another '85.

Same story here- body in great shape, chassis not too bad but bulkhead shot.

Post more pics!

It's funny I get a lot of people who ask what the land rover is and even though it says land rover on it, and they sold plenty of defenders in the US, I tell them it's a Bulgarian mail jeep. More pics of the rust to follow. My bulkhead is ok. I have some issues where the hinges are for the windshield but someone bondo and paint coated them so they are ok for now until I take the time to fix it. What annoys me most is the window where the rubber trim attaches. That is almost gone. I have replaced the trim but water still leaks through and the bottom of the door is gone. I don't want go get new doors. The lift handle type are so hard to find.

Question for you. Do you have the cotter pin and spring clip calipers? I have been trying to match mine up to order a new pair but I can't seem to find the correct replacements. I can't find a part number on mine the rust is too heavy.

Sadly I can't help because I replaced both axles. It's a fairly easy swap & allows for fitment of alloys so you might consider it- plus you'd be done with your brake woes. You can either use axles from a Discovery 1 or a Defender.

Don't feel bad, I'm going to have to do a lot of work on my bulkhead. Most everything else is weekend project type of cleaning and such.

Looks like a cool truck. I like the color.

I gotta tell you, that sounds like a sound plan. Much easier parts to come by.

Sorry it's been a while but I finally got a nice day to get into it. The pistons are shot on one side but I was able to get them back in enough to get a crap pad in there. I sanded as much rust off as I could. They're holding fine for now. At least I can move it around now. Now it's time to order the calipers. The pads are for a range rover classic so I would assume the calipers are as well.

I don't think the calipers from a RRC will work for you. The RRC had vented rotors and the old 90/110 have solid rotors. There is a spacer in the RRC caliper that could be removed, then you would just have to sort out the caliper requiring a extra brake line per side.

I've just had trouble matching up the right calipers to these.
