Introduction

Hi, my name is Mike and I have just joined the D-90 forum so I thought I'd best introduce myself. I am originally from the UK, however have recently moved to Maryland. Back in England I owned a 1994 Defender 90 and a 2004 Discovery 2, however both were sold prior to moving over. I had owned the Defender since 2003 and completed a chassis up rebuild on a new galv chassis about a month prior to moving to the US. I sourced my current Land Rover, an Ex MOD 1986 LHD 110 Tithonus, just before moving to the US, and today after a month of back and forth with the MVA here in Maryland have finally got Title and tags, so just the safety inspection left to go. Looking forward to seeing what the Land Rover community is like here in the US, and in particular here in the Maryland area.

Hi Micheal,
Welcome! You should have brought a rebuilt over. Much cheaper to get it done in the UK then the States.

Hi to you up in Canada. Indeed it would have been, but unfortunately circumstances didnt allow it. I finished my 90 rebuild and sold it to a friend before I left, and I know that bringing in rebuilt vehicles to the US is somewhat of a grey area, the difference between a restored and a rebuilt vehicle seems to be a sticking point. I decided to play it save. The 110 I brought over is in really nice condition, and the UK Military kindly put in a rebuilt engine, new seats, a new hard top, roll cage, and wolf type wheels before it was sold off, so hopefully should last a while. I have a few plans for it though, as it is somewhat less civilised than my previous 200tdi 90.

I'm not thinking of changing the exterior much, maybe some roll cage spots, and maybe a front winch when funds allow. I will be adding a little to the interior though, as the military spec 110's are a little on the basic side. I have a Rad Haz kit to install on the inside which should help insulate a little. Will install a CB too, and maybe a centre lockable cubby box.
