    I purchased a 1996 defender 110 out here in italy a few years ago. I think I made a series of errors.

    Good afternoon. I am the proud owner of a 1986 110 V8. I had it 'prepared' for me in the UK and have spent another six months fixing, tinkering and upgrading - more to follow. One of the things that has come to light and is most upsetting is that after only 9 months I have rust bubbles on the...
