Started life as a basically brand new 1997 NAS D90 SW.
I think it had 2000 miles on it when we did the conversion. We built that Green 110 some years ago. It has been sitting in a garage and only used a during the summers, so hence the low miles.

All the 110s we build start off an some sort of NAS Defender.

I know all the vehicles are NAS and nothing weird. I guess because the build doesn't show what it started as I was wondering. Does that mean it is always registered as a 97 90?

The title shows the VIN and 1997 Defender. It just says "Defender" V8, etc. It doesn't say 90 or 110.
If you decode the VIN it would say 90, but the title is generic.

Those early 110s we did not show the 90 starting point like we do now because it was so long ago. We were the first ones to chop up a 90 and make it into a 110 back in 1995 and I didn't put it on the site for 2 reasons. #1 at that time I didn't want anyone else knowing how we did it and
#2 during that period in the mid 1990s we were at the heart of massive debates by the rover fan crowd about just how we were getting new 110s in and how we got them titled as we built them from scratch (when in fact we did neither). So I let the "internet experts" guess and didn't post the 90 tear down photos.
It was fun to sit back and watch the debate go on about what we were doing.

Now, many years later, everybody converts 90 to 110s so it is no big deal, but back in 1997...

Hello Tyler

Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately we no longer supply the rear AC kits that were designed for the 300 tdi defender, this is due to a drop in demand since the 2007 model change.

Best regards
Angela
I got the same response.

Which strikes me as incredibly odd, you'd think they'd just leave them in spot production and make 10 to 20 at a time. Hell, looks like at least 3 of us have asked for them in the last month...

How much do these run? I am very interested. Are they doing a run just for you guys? So we have to come up with 50 people to make it happen?

50 sounds like a lot, but I'd be in.

They're actually pretty reasonable from the factory, like 700 pounds or something. 50 would supply the whole US for a while...

Thanks Mike:

Not sure whether to do this, or mount the 110 Cargo/Dog Guard and have Badger make a clear curtain to mount to that, thereby only needing the front air to cool much less space.
Seems a much cheaper solution, but that rear air does look slick. How well does it cool? If no better than the front air (even with a brand new compressor, ... then I would find it a waste of time.

I get the idea that its pretty much like the front - like the front on a 97. Pretty much anything has to be an improvement on the 15 year old NAS 110 in-dash system. I'm not keeping the NAS system in my restoration, I'm replacing it with a new underdash.

Sweet! George must have gotten some of the last ones made, I wonder if the price went up or what. Either way, I'm glad I scored mine when I did.
