1994 Defender 90 #342 Soft Top with Full Station Wagon Conversion

Great running truck with a ton of upgrades. I purchased this truck from British Motor Company about a year and a half ago and I'll probably kick myself for selling, but I am trying to start a business and I need capitol.

Original thread: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...&highlight=tlc.

#342 needed quite a lot of sorting but has come along nicely. This D90 has both a full soft top set up and a full station wagon set up (which I added) including both ST and SW cages (Surprise, Surprise, they're different!!), both ST & SW style doors, top and sides, both ST & SW rear doors. Pretty much all of the bits to make a complete Station Wagon or Soft Top. I ran the wagon in winter and the soft top in summer. For those super cold days this D90 has seat heaters and an auxiliary heater which runs off the coolant keeping things very toasty inside. A/C for the summer in this truck as well. The Odometer has not functioned since I purchased but the pervious owner estimated the mileage to be around 120k. I drove it approximately 6k, so the vehicle has around 126,000 miles on it.

Below is a list of the mods from when I bought it. A visual comparison to the original thread shows a few differences as a couple of items were missing from the vehicle when it arrived to me and some of the parts that came with the truck were in pretty bad condition and were thrown out.

The winch was sold. The custom roof rack was unfortunately stolen. Since owning her I have invested a great deal in money in parts and in personal, as well as paid labor. Work completed and new parts noted below. All work was performed by Expedition Autoworks: http://www.expeditionautoworks.com/ and I have all receipts. The truck is fast, runs great and is exceptionally fun to drive.

New Fuel Pump and Filter Replaced

Full Disclosure
The truck was in an icy low speed collision with an immovable object (my fault) and slightly bent the frame on the front drivers side. I was referred to a good frame straightener who aligned everything right and now you’d never know it happened driving it. The only telltale sign is a bit of downward slant in the ARB bumper from right to left.

Issues
I recently installed the Mud UK Consol and the wiring needs to be completed to hook up some of the ancillaries. The passenger side footwell has some rust. It has been sanded, painted with anti-corrosion paint, and covered with dynamat to stop air flow in but ultimately should have what was done on the drivers side, a welded-in panel. The heater blower motor needs to be replaced for the vehicle heat blow hot again. (seat heaters and aux heater have done the job just fine). Some rust is noticeable on the rear crossmember but the rest of the frame looks solid. Needs new speedo cable.

I thought it was a 4.6 not a 4.2?
