Greetings from sunny south Florida!

Long-time reader, first-time poster! My wife and I finally found the Land Rover we've always wanted: a 1988 LHD 90 2.5TD recently imported from Italy. All manual everything. It's pretty awesome.

The vehicle needs some work, so I'm looking forward to learning much more. I've already swapped out the old fuse blocks (no more glass fuses!) and addressed some electrical issues caused by a previous owner's attempt to add a trailer wiring harness. I also upgraded the sealed beam headlights with Cibie E-code units, and added a pair of Hella fog lights and a work light. It's very much a work in progress, but I'm enjoying the process, and we both love driving it everywhere (and getting much better fuel mileage than our 1998 D1).

Ken, it was a pleasure doing business with you! Thanks for encouraging our behavior

I never thought we'd find a strong, solid ROW 90 in our price range, but you made it happen for us.
