1985 d90 2.5NA

Hi all, new d90 owner here.

Always wanted a Defender and a diesel...found a good combination. She joins an SIII in the fleet.

Just arrived, "good bones", good solid driver w/ a recent engine. She will get spiffed up a bit as a Winter project, mostly the interior so the females in the household will go in it.

Look forward to joining the forum.

Here a couple of pics from its first off-roading with me at an old construction site. Found some loose dirt & sand, had fun. Diesel is at home off road.

I am slowly spiffing up the exterior trim and other bits, but will be leaving all of the French stickers and body character as is. Next will be some typical minor mechanical work (radiator has a slight seep, clutch master, etc.), treating and sealing the chassis but overall she seems very solid and a nice runner w/ that trail shredding 2.5NA.

The County graphics are really cool in an 80's uncool way... I've had a few UK ex-pats come up to me asking about the car.

Thanks for the comments.
