Well, as is always the case when I have banned myself from buying anymore shite, what happens? I buy some more shite.

 

It was too good an opportunity to pass. One of my military work colleagues bought said vehicle earlier in the year with vision to restore and sell on. Initially he was very keen, stripped it down, de-corroded the chassis, did a lot of work to the engine and rebuilt the front axle, including the swivel housings and fitted vented discs and new calipers.

 

Recently his interest waned and he is going on a South Atlantic holiday for 4 months courtesy of Betty Windsor's  Flying Circus (The RAF) next month. I asked him if he wanted to sell it. He wasn't sure, said he'd let me know. Next day he came back said he wanted to sell, I offered him £2500 which he accepted.

 

As I want to turn it round quick I have gone into partnership with my mate, with a view to split any profits.

 

The rear number plate is GR9.

 

I will attempt to update progress as it happens.

Yes, 300Tdi. Not sure about the gearbox yet, I might have an opportunity to upgrade.

Nice 90 and a good project. Are you able to keep and work on it indoors? This is a great thread already.

Makes me embarrassed about that pile of green, slimy rust that resembles a 1994 110 on my driveway which I haven't touched in a while...

Am I the only one that gets irate when people call the old 90/110 ‘s defenders?

Being the owner of an 87 90 I get it all the time from customers - “nice defender” grrr! I’ve taken to saying “ where” while looking round the yard.

As I am working in partnership with my boss so keeping it indoors won't be an issue.

 

As a B plate it's one of the early 90's. In an ideal world I'd love to restore it back to original as possible, but it's not an ideal world so I am restoring it to as best I can to a budget.

 

Looks like my Defender won't get any love this winter.

& one clean chassis too! Every one I've seen is somewhat more (how can I put this politely?) rust coloured....

I have a 1990 110, everyone refers to it as 'the Defender'... and so do I now  :oops:, way too difficult to explain to non-mentals why they were re-branded in 1991..

However, calling a series vehicle 'Defender' is NOT ACCEPTABLE, ever  :D
