1998 Land Rover Defender 90

Here is my 20 year old Land Rover Defender 90. It's a on-going project but now sits on a new glavanised chassis. I've been using (by hand) Black Hole, Chemical Guy's Butter Wet Wax and Natty's Paste Wax and it's coming up a treat considering it's age.

Definitely doesn't look like your typical defender

not sure these should be detailed really should they - they should have a thick layer of mud on them and mucky water spray all up the sides

Looks good though. Keep it safe.

We definitely need more pics! Looks very nice. I've DA'd my dad's 1998 110 before but found that all the exposed rivets knacker the pads so hand polishing is probably the best choice!!

Is it Epsom Green? I can't quite tell. It's amazing how once a Defender is shiny - it could easily be mistaken for one of the last ones off the line!
