Both Sunroofs work and do not leak. I do not use them and they are NOT siliconed shut.
I've replaced a few window regulators and motors, and all of them work great. Also
I have replaced the driver's door lock hinge and components to ensure that the door
always works. I do have a bit of field spares that I take along with it to ensure that no matter
what happens I am able to get home. This has not happened to me yet, but its become a practice
due to work habits. The parts include ignition modules, rotors, fuel pump, plugs and relays
for the most part.

ZERO RUST. Again, ZERO RUST. This has been a west coast D1 its entire life. Was sold out of LRLV
and was serviced there untill around 2013 I beleive. The first owner was a little old lady who
took very good care of it until she passed away. Then it became my project afterward. This 95 D1
has been VERY reliable once I understood the quirks of owning a Land Rover. The two issues I had
that have been resolved and do not even make me question any mile trip was a failing ECU and
a batch of bad Genuine LR Ignition Rotors. The D1 has been very good offroad and I have used it for many
camping trips, offroad drives and daily commutes as well. Right now I am getting 220-245 miles out
of a tank, but I am not correcting anything for the tire size. Currently it has the aerodynamics of a barn door.

The only small issue is that it does drop a small amount of oil from the pan, which I resealed around 35k ago and
the transfer case drops a small amount as well, from the plate cover. It is not enough to warrant a redo but its just
something I wanted all to know. Also, I some what modified the drivers side door panel to be removable with machine screws and nutsert inserts in the door rather than those push pin clip things that rattle and break all the time.
