Hello from Pennsylvania

Long time lurker, first time poster. Just wanted to say hi from the Philadelphia area. Some great info on here, and plenty to make me jealous of the 25 year import rule in the states.

and Classic Range Rovers, P38s and TD5 Discoveries... All awesome vehicles, mostly V8 and there will be a lot of envious people on this side of the pond just because of that...

The alternative of course is emigrating to Canada or Brexit-land Rolling Eyes Rolling with laughter

thanks gents. we do have NAS 90's and on occasion one of the few 110's, but those are big money, regardless of condition. I'm running the standard 91, D90, 200tdi pulled from a shyster in Italy. He saw a dumb American a mile away (me), and I paid a bit for it. Project going well and things are back on track.

Pembroke grey, with rattle can paint job in Italy. More garage time than road time, but that's my fault. Here's the quick story

Day 1.

Found this after closer inspection, also bent in corners on tub (covered up by bumperettes)

Fabbed this up to fix it, 3/16 tube, sleeved all holes for strength

putting back together, finally to get back on the road, and found this when replacing gasket for windscreen

Lots more in between but thats my current situation. Love working on it, need to get some more miles on it, should be good after repairing in the rust spots on top of bulkhead. The rest of bulkhead is clean, as is frame. Met some great people over on the US forums and made some new friends, hoping to do the same here.
