Defender9 & Slidey or those with brochure LR335E... The One Ten CSW and Ninety soft top (I'm learning Slidey!) in the brochure, am I right in thinking they are Stratos Blue? Confused

Looking again in daylight looks more like slate grey? James

James,
You are right Slate Grey, although it does look to have a brown tinge on the top and middle pictures but in the brochure definitely Slate Grey, just like my Ninety. 2015 Defender 90 SW / 1985 factory V8 Ninety

Thank you, it's a photo of the brochure in artificial light so not a good representation.

Photos please! (did I just ask you this on Facebook?) James

Yes, the One Ten CSW is Slate Grey.

James, the chap Richard who runs the S2C pub meet at Sturmer (he came to mine in a SIII on the Defenders by the Pond weekend, I don't know if you spoke to him) recently had an identical Slate Grey CSW of the same era. It was a nice vehicle and went well - just a shame about the chassis! Whistle

The Ninety soft top in the brochure is Bronze Green.

Come to Sturmer next Weds, I'll bring any brochures you want! Laughing

Thanks Charles. The photos I posted are from the brochure LR335E. I'd swear the 110 and soft top are the same colour slate grey Confused

Unfortunately I'm away next week so will miss Sturmer yet again! Next summer though I promise I'll make a visit. James

I count 7 photos of a Ninety soft top in LR335E and to my eyes they are all Slate Grey. I do wear glasses though Whistle 2015 Defender 90 SW / 1985 factory V8 Ninety

Well, look at page 8, the 2 bottom right hand photos.

The Ninety soft-top above the One Ten CSW towing the horse trailer.

Do the colours look the same?


Incidentally it is ironic that there are more photos of that soft-top in the brochure than any other variant, yet they sold so few that they stopped building soft-tops for the UK market within months.

Shouldn't have been a surprise as they sold relatively few full tilt late SIII's.

To be honest the Ninety in the top picture on that page looks more green to me but I think it’s the light.
