Salvage doesn't matter if you're going to keep it forever like me, but try and not let it title salvage if you can afford to avoid it. I think salvage tends to be about 80% of vale as cutoff or something like that.

I see your pics and think "Yay! Insurance is paying for my diesel conversion!"

Sorry for your loss, Greg. Also sad that you only found this board after the fire...this could have probably been prevented if you had found this site earlier.

Oh man. I'm so sorry. Thankfully everyone was okay. No car is worth more than that.

Oh man, another victim of the infamous oil fire... Sorry to hear! As Josh indicated above, too bad you didn't find good advice early on.

Good luck on the rebuild! A much better truck can potentially come out of this....

Sorry about your 110 and glad no one got hurt. That is totally rebuildable. I would keep it NAS though. Good luck.

Really sad to see this, and especially since you've has her in the family for 15 years.

To echo what everyone has said, yes, totally rebuildable!

If you want to do a diesel conversion, now is certainly the right time. I would part out my Puma for you if you wanted to go that route.

Greg, glad to hear you were not injured. You should seriously consider rebuilding to NAS spec.

Just Take a quick look at what ECR and solid Copley NAS110's can go for and do a simple cost benefit analysis.

Document the hell out of whatever you decide to do and a reasonable buyer someday should look past the silly salvage issue when he\she has less than 500 to choose from.

Alas if you had been a regular here you would have known about the oil line issue with all US spec defenders and that dozens have gone up in flames and that it is the first thing a new owner should address.

Offer to buy back the salvage even if you don't want it anymore because someone on this site will buy the carcass from you for several thousand dollars and breathe new life into it ,instead of it going off to a junk yard some where to be picked over by vultures.

If you are willing to undertake yourself, this site will prove an invaluable resource.

Wow we really need a public service announcement. I thought all NAS defender owners knew about those oil cooler lines. I'm sorry to see your truck burn, good luck with rebuilding it now you have a chance to make it brand new again.

Land Rover NA should feel obligated to address this

Where did you hear about it? Your dealership?

The shame is on Rover. They could have done the right thing and put the word out that new lines should be installed regularly.

Really? Let's kick the man while he's down. If I had not joined this forum when I bought my 90 I would have never known about the fire issue. I'd hazard to say MOST D90 owners have no clue about the oil cooler lines.
