Review Photos for D90 Purchase & Technical Q about reinstalling windows

Hi All,
Very similar request to what blaughva recently posted. Could you please review these photos (94 ST) and let me know if you see any areas of concern or anything that you view in a positive light. This is my first D90 purchase also, so any input would be greatly appreciated.

The owner said he had the front windows taken out permanently and says he has all the parts, but doesn't know whether the vehicle was modified or whether body work would need to be done to put the windows back. Is there any possibility they could have permanently modified it so that I won't be able to get the windows back in place -- or is it so straightforward that permanent damage is doubtful. (See pics re where post holes were filled in with plastic anchor and screw.) If he hadn't said anything I would have assumed I could just put them back, but now I'm concerned.

Thanks!

Doors are split and the sliding windows do come out. The holes are for the posts that secure them in place.
Where is this truck located and how many miles. Looks incredibly clean. Only puzzle is the yellow paint on the chassis.
What's the vin?

Need pics of bottoms of doors, better shots of the footwells with the mats fully removed (photos supplied do not show where the corrosion usually is), additional photos of the bulkhead from the engine bay, and some shots up at the bottom of the footwell up through the rear of the driver and passenger wheelwells . Also need additional photos of the rear crossmember, which is one of the only spots I see some little rust starting. The rear crossmember is delaminating (which is common). This is a snap shot of the area I'm talking about - these sheets of steel should be sandwiched together tightly. Taken from your photo 11 of 23.

Are these plugs a LR part? Any idea on where to find them?

Thanks for the input so far -- this truck spent its life out west and has approx. 75k miles (I say approximate because the carfax includes a reference to a not actual miles title being issued. That said, the other carfax entries suggest the mileage is in the ballpark.

I neglected to mention two other things. 1. The a/c fan works, but it's not blowing cool air -- so I have no idea whether that's a $1700 repair or a $100 fix. 2. The owner has a Badger II top on order -- says it's been on order for months.

I am posting all the other photos I took and hopefully they'll give you enough to weigh in further. (I didn't notice any yellow paint on the chassis, not sure if it's just lighting or a reflection.) Again, thanks!

Perhaps someone can answer your question, but because the photos aren't sharp I wanted to let you know it looks like it's a black plastic anchor and then a black Phillips head plastic screw.

Nothing is telling me to run, so go for it. Don't let those door top plugs be a deal breaker. If that's your biggest concern, then continue on with the buying process on this truck. If it REALLY seems like it's a big deal, then maybe start looking for a Toyota insterad, because there will certainly be bigger issues than those little door plugs down the road.

Those rubber plugs are a great idea. Keep the water out from rusting the steel tubes.

Josh is right. The pictures are dandy but do not show the real potential problem areas:

1. The footwell underneath the floor mats.
2. The bottoms of the doors.
3. Pictures of the bulkhead underneath the windshield frame.

Buy the stainless steel door studs. Forgot who sells them but they are the way to go. And yes the studs are a LR part.

Do I need any more parts than this to reinstall the windows?

Further to my question above, I now have a photo for the windows. Do I need anything more than these posts to reinstall -- or are there other parts? Note damage to the sleeve on one of the posts -- not sure if that will creat problems and/or whether these parts are easily replaceable. I also see a little rust near the post hole on the top of the right window. Thanks for your answers!

Don't use those posts/studs - as others above said get the stainless ones. Nothing to worry about.

That is as rust free as 20 year old defenders come. The plugs for the window studs probably pop right out. The fact the guy put them in makes me think he is really anal which is a very good thing. Depending on price I would buy it as the condition looks excellent.

Other than nuts for the bottom of the studs, you need nothing. I bet they are in a bag somewhere in the truck.

Thanks guys -- I didn't realize the reference to studs was the same as what I referred to as posts (glad you clarified). I've made an offer and am waiting to hear back. Much appreciated!

He didn't show the normal trouble spots but I agree with Ron. The truck looks rust free. There is no way to get axles that clean with grease pen marks if the rest of the truck is rusty. The ac could still have caused rot but it appears to be owned by someone who looked after it.
