Hello from Calgary, Alberta, Canada!

After looking around for 2 years...I finally found my 90 in Italy and it finally arrived to my door mid July. Glad to be part of this forum and looking to learn from everyone.

Unfortunately, during the shipping process the shipper damaged my bonnet and passenger door frame around the window so that has been my nightmare to deal with lately. PLEASE AVOID USING LIVINGSTON INTERNATIONAL to ship your precious cargo. They are denying the damage claim because they claim that the areas that were damaged are not used or touched during shipping and they also don't insure damaged vehicles 15 years of age and greater. None of which were stated in the shipping agreement or acknowledge when we did the walk around inspection before they took the vehicle.
In any case...glad to be on here and I'm super excited to start customizing my 90!

Welcome to the forum! This is a great place to find technical information, ideas and encouragement.

Sorry to hear about your problems. It seems like ocean shippers have a license to take a lot of your money with zero responsibility for their actions.

Hi & welcome,

If you don't already know you can get parts & service from my buddy Vern at TRS Automotive. He's ex-LR and a master tech, knows his stuff and won't rip out off.

Cheers !

Looks good. Welcome aboard. The shadow in the photo hides the damage nicely!
