if you do anything, get it waxoyled ASAP before the salt destroys it.

Just a reminder that you'll be able to find just about any answer very quickly on your own by using the search function on this site.

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=48855

For waxoyl specifically, I haven't seen a vendor in NYC offer that service, but there are some members who have the guns to do it themselves. There are also more shops out on LI that do that specific service. I think rovertek is one, and AmityD90 (user here) used another shop out near Amityville. Robison Service in Massachusetts has the best write-up on it for Land Rovers. If you Google "waxoyl land rover" his shop is usually one of the top 3 results.

What an awesome truck ... clearly you are a man of great taste ... there are quite a few NAS owners in the area so you are in good company!

Also these trucks have nuances and you need to be cautious about who does work on it ... seek guidance hear first or likely get screwed by 'defender owner' tax!

welcome to the board ...

I have my truck worked on at Rovertek (Chris Viola) in Farmingdale LI and highly recommend his work and reasonable rates. He also did the Waxoyl job as well.

Ironically, I just had a roll cage put on my ROW D90 at North America Overland in CT (Mike Sandone is another good restoration guy). Don't remove the cage as it may save your life one day.

FYI. If your truck hasn't had it's oil cooler lines upgraded or deleted, I would suggest doing so as they are known to catch on fire.

DOUBLE ON THIS ... many people have had defenders car-b-q because the oil lines have failed.

If you arent sure where to look PM me or Josh and we'll talk you through checking them.

I can't see from the pics. You should call Stephen and double check. I've told him a few times to at least offer it if he's not doing it between the time he buys the trucks and marks them up $15-20k. For $50k I'd seriously hope he's at least wrapping them; ideally they should be replaced with stainless steel braided lines.

Roll Cages

Is there a way to buy replacement parts for these roll cages?
As they start to rust out are they repairable?

I agree, don't paint your cage white.

post a picture vertically down by the AC compressor and the radiator ... then we can tell you ... we ramble on about a lot of crap on here but the oil cooler lines are a serious issue on these trucks.

Yeah, keep the roll cage on. They do crush like beer cans when they go over. Ask me how I know...
