That depends on the year of the 90 and the wheel. Steel wheels yes on all, alloy wheels only on the later 90's with the thin drive flange. Alloys will not fit my 1980's UK 90 but the steels do.

They will not fit on some of the older defenders which have the larger flange. You might be able to use a spacer to get it to work but I haven't tried that.

Looking good.

I'm partial to white steels though.

AAs you can see, it's 'evolving'. The black wheels will become white for when the whole thing is repainted in red with a white roof- I'll also have a set of wheels re-done in silver. New bonnet wil be red with a 'scoop' in the middle.

You should leave it all white, like Le Grande. A white rover is a fine thing.

What's the scoop for?

Hood is only black because it was badly scratched & had overspray all over it. Not a big fan of white because it'll show red dust real bad. Bonnet being replaced 1) to get more air in, 2) because the vented one looks cool and 3) because the one that's on there has damage & rust.

Long term plan is to take ti the the USVI.

Are you planning on drilling holes or putting vents in the hood?
