    I purchased a 1996 defender 110 out here in italy a few years ago. I think I made a series of errors. First when purchasing the defender I noticed the vin on the chassis was different than the one on the Title but not (for what I thought) was a substantive way. It was missing the 2nd letter in...

    Hi all -- I am in the process of buying a Defender from the UK and importing it into the US. I'm quite familiar with the process etc. but need some expertise from this group. A couple things I am sorting through to ensure that I am buying what has been represented to me. The car is a 1996 model...

    Hi all. I'm new here, so apologies if posting in the wrong place. I'm aware of the25 year rule and have been researching and shopping for quite some time. I've found a nice low mile D90 in Europe that I'm considering bringing over. It's listed as a '94 but the VIN shows a '95 model year. It's...

    I’m looking into buying a d90 in the new future and doing my initial research on which model year/engine would best fit my needs. I do not currently have a long commute, but I’d like something that would do well on the interstate, around town, and off road. Do any of you all have some...

    Any thoughts on the value of a series vin and title? I inherited a 1966 2A parts truck that can be registered but would need a frame up resto. Im just wondering if its worth the trouble or should i just part it out?

    In January I purchased a 110 in a BAT auction from a guy in Athens, Greece. I just received the vehicle last week. I am very pleased with it so far, but I have a question about getting it titled. The seller advertised the vehicle as a 1990 110 and provided a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust...

    I’ve ordered the sill rails that run underneath the truck and attack to the outriggers. At the moment, the body is off the frame and is being held up under each sill. My question is this... where have others supported the body in order to remove the sills? Has anyone ever removed them while on...

    I have a replacement ‘Unleaded Fuel Only’ sticker to go on my truck but I’m having a tough time getting the ratty old one off. Is there a special technique to removing the old decal? Goo Gone? Heat?

    My first time back on here after the case of the troll from hell. Despite all that, I'm continuing my LR search. I'm on the point of pulling the trigger on what has been billed as a 1987 90. However, when I asked for the VIN, I was given the following (typed, not a photo of the actual VIN)...

    2nd row legroom becoming an issue as my boys get older. Is there a “simple” method to moving the rear seat position back a few inches? Anyone sell aftermarket brackets or extenders? Ps. I have a 1987 CSW 5 door. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I have these parts left over from my seat build project. I have 2 of each. They are brand new and undamaged. They came off new seat bases and headrests. The headrests were genuine Land Rover so probably Lear Corporation. The seat base covers are probably from the same manufacturer. They are not...
