Yes, there is white on it... the compass is black and white, the area around British Columbia is originally clear... so the black decal underneath makes the area black. Make sense?? LOL Those pics were taken in 2006... the blue was still slightly visible, but now... it's pretty much white.

My mechanic is able to get a hold of another decal for me. Do you need one?

BTW: Do you know what number your Eco XD was assigned? You'll find it under the bonnet, above of the radiator. It's a square adhesive sticker. If not, you may see residue from an adhesive and that's a bummer. I've already checked with the Colorado Springs dealership and they didn't keep track of that information. Hmm, I wonder if corporate may know.

I wished they used a metal plate like they did with the Defender 90's. My memory is telling me that mine is number 26.

I just bought a 1996 XD TReK about a week ago. I'm super excited for it, I just have to wait until May to get it :C

I'm a little nervous about the gas mileage because I currently drive a 1993 Mercedes Benz 300D 2.5 Turbo Diesel which gets awesomeee gas mileage. The thing is, this LR's got 4WD, is larger, stick shift, and looks awesome. I bought it sight unseen from ebay but the seller is a trustworthy guy so I'm not terribly worried.

Love that TREK XD, I was watching it on ebay.........wish I had the extra funds I would have nabbed it.

Here is a pic of mine just got finished helping my buddy paint the hood and roof. You could still see where it said British Columbia 96 under the paint on the hood.

Nice TRek and congratulations!

The gas mileage is little to be desired bc of the 30/70 AWD and weighs about a ton, but gotta love the unique look. I wish you the best of fun with it!!

Hey Shawn, I envy you... you're gonna show me up at the Breck Rally. I'm picking up my girl tomorrow... I'm really excited!! This weekend I'm taking her on an overdue 4x4 escaped. I'll get the 411 on the compass decal tomorrow as well.

Caress rather than molest... you never know of a persons past.

The compass decal maybe hard to come by. My mechanics contact no longer has his Eco and didn't replace the compass before selling; still could have the possibility getting it in jpg. A jpg can be converted to almost any format so a local decal graphic designer could print one out. I'll keep you posted. Hopefully by the end of next week.
