History Sold 05/13/2013


2nd owner, no rust, changed color to Beluga Black, and upgraded to the LR 4.6 V8, with R380 transmission

I bought it from TLR in November 2006. TLR bought it from the original Oklahoma owner.
I was told that the original owner's house was hit by a tornado. All of the left side body panels had dents, but the right side was nice. The hood and roof had some hail damage too. We found a lot of glass during the disassembly.
The title is clean, and I am listed as the second owner.
Before the tornado I believe that this D110 was a 9.5/10. The original owner took very good care of it. I wanted a nice rust free D110 that I could change the color on. This D110 was a perfect candidate for a color change. At one time I wanted to restore it to factory, but I do not like white (sorry fellow Alpine White owners).

2009:
Kyle Caskey and Kermit Krantz did most of the work. I helped where I could, but my main job was the logistics of the project. Ordering parts (genuine LR parts only), scheduling each step with third parties, ect.
Lindan Auto did the paint work, and High Performance Coatings powder coated the cage, sliders, and a few other bits. The owner of Lindan Auto is a good friend of Kermits, so special attention was given. But, they do top notch work on restoring classic cars. Lindan Auto works on all Land Rovers, and is a great independent shop alternative.
Kyle had just built a very large, very well equipped shop. Kermit's NAS D110 (#73/500) was parked in the shop next to mine the whole time as live a reference guide during the project (the parts book and shop manual help too). Kyle and Kermit have been around, owned, and worked on NAS Defenders since 1993. They are both very particular about their work.
We had a lot of fun with the project.

2011 Update:
All work done by Kevin Curtis of RoverTechs of Scottsdale, AZ.
Kevin is a Land Rover trained tech with over 15 years of experience working on Defenders. He moved to the US from England about 10 years ago. He worked as a tech at LR Scottsdale and now an independent at his shop he shares with another LR tech.
