I’m new to the forum and indeed a new defender owner. Last week I picked up my 1995 Land Rover 110 county Station wagon 300TDI.
I must stress I am not mechanical minded, but I am keen to do as much of the work required to maintain this, as possible.
On inspection there are patches of rust on the Door undersides, the Bull Bar the rear ladder and minimal patches on rear benches.

The Brakes seem poor, even for an old heavy defender.

Alarmingly when driving last night, the full beams randomly decided to turn themselves off and the low beams did not come on.

As I said I am new to this, my ultimate goal is to turn this into a vehicle I can use for my active scouting hobby, towing kayaks, moving marquees and generally camping and exploring. I would also like to do some off roading in it.

The first phase I would like to do is repair any damage and stabilise any rust.

As I see it my priorities should be

  1. Lights
  2. Brakes
  3. Rust

I am making this post as I would love to know if this is wrong or if there is any particular issue I should be checking before starting.

Many thanks
