    Guys, finally I bought 'FD 1', I was seeking a well maintained FD1 or FD 4 for months but was not lucky enough. After many cheatings and hassles, I accidentally found this red beauty. And also after dozens of negotiations, I settled with her. This FD1 is a brand new import under the permit scheme and registered in 31st of December 2007. previous owner is a doctor & he was the first owner and had maintained her with Sfat#d Mot#rs and had all service records from the beginning to up to date. Two Autolankans were helping me with this. Hyaenidae, [email protected] and also I thank full to who wrote threads about FD's. I read each & every thread about FD. Thank you all guys. Here are some photos of her.

    1. Difference is the double taped gold colour logo itself fitted by the car sale guy. 2. There is no Vezel G model

    After sanding the primer, applied the filler coat. Gray color filler applied on the body shell. Later thought to use white color filler as the top coat will be white.

    Congratulations ! She does look rather beautiful and clean (well...get a new set of floor mats though). See.....you do get diamonds amidst a sea shore full of chipped stones if you are willing to step away from the usual Axios and Premios...

    Is the idle RPM normal (i.e. around 700 - 800)? It could be a worn out engine mount as well, although I can't see how CarChecks would miss it.

    They're cheap for a reason. Low demand - low price and vice-versa. As Devinda mentioned above.

    You have to lodge a complaint with police. Then you have to take a copy of police entry to department of motor traffic and fill a form. (CMT 65). You can download that form from their site. And then they will issue new VIC sticker. When you sell your car to a person who is living in another province he/she will be in trouble when obtaining new number plates.

    @tiv Solid run down 👍 The 61- 62- heavy vehicles weren't necessarily single cabs - the County Station Wagon 110's imported brand new by Colonial Motors were 10 seaters so those also ended up being registered as heavy vehicles but Motor Coaches Bank of Ceylon owned a fleet - some on 56/7/8- more 61/2/4- @nisala4423 just about every Defender you find now which isn't on a K plate or newer is likely a mix of parts - i don't personally know of any from the 1990's Defenders (bar one ) still running the original engine an gearbox in the spec as assembled by Land Rover in Solihull in the UK. @tiv there is a further complication on the chassis number - most of the police and army used one don't have the full alphanumeric chassis code but rather just a numeric one which is much shorter so it's virtually impossible to decode or find the original vehicle. @nisala4423 check the seating capacity and weight on the CR - book - be careful / avoid if the book hasn't been updated as it technically is illegal to do what so many have done modifying these 90's / 110's and thus skirting taxes Also note that anything pre-1990 isn't even technically a "Defender" but rather a 90"/110"

    No have no test driven one.....I just saw it at the motor show where it was parked in a booth.

    Sounds like the parking brake is binding. Do this test: Next time you keep the car parked for the duration you're talking about, don't engage the parking brake. Keep the car on P and use wheel chocks or a bricks or something to ensure the car doesn't accidentally move. Park on flat ground. If you don't experience the binding after you park like this, then your parking brake is definitely what's binding. If you have drum brakes, it might be a broken spring. You'll have to take the drums out and inspect. In any case, get it checked out immediately as it's a safety concern. Good luck!

    So...there are about 4 Raizes for sale in Japan that can actually be picked up and still a lot are yet to be delivered. Actual road tests are starting to come up and reviewers seem to like it as a little daily city car for Japan. They also seem to prefer the 4wd as opposed to the 2wd as the extra weight seems to make the car feel more grounded and has less road vibrations due to the weight. https://gazoo.com/impression/r329097.html

    She is still a rookie driver. She lacks space time awareness which is common for most of the womenfolk. Anyhow, I also have the same question in my head, which will never get a proper answer. I have a dash-camera installed in the car, unfortunately, I disconnected it the day before when cleaning the car and forgot to plug it back, or could have checked it to understand what actually happened. P.S Women does not understand how much men treasure their metallic pets. To date, Im still saddened about what happened but I dont see it in her.

    Body filling was the next step. Unfortunately I have only few pictures of this step. Anyhow followed the above video instructions throughout the filling process. Additionally applied putty on top of filled areas and small scratches. After all preparation applied the primer coat. Below images are after sanding the primer coat.
