History Chronos was purchased off the lot by a woman in 1999 and well looked after by her until the fall of 2015. He then became my first car and I haven't stopped working on him since! His paint is impeccable and the interior is in great shape as well. He currently has around 195,000 miles.

Since I've had him I've replaced the following:

- E-brake boot
- Hi-Low shifter boot
- Armrest hinge cap
- Horn buttons (modified so they won't break again)
- Wheel center caps
- Cargo space cover
- Front sunroof tray (broken drain hose)
- Headliner
- Pins securing trunk door panel
- Fuel pump
- ABS solenoid actuator
- Front 12v outlet
- Water pump
- Front engine cover gasket (twice)
- Oil pan gasket (twice)
- Upper coolant hoses
- Both small plastic coolant hoses
- Both normal idler pulleys
- Power steering pump
- Spark plugs
- Spark plug cables
- Redone wheel arches
- Crankshaft position sensor (twice)
- Front bumper (repaired with fiberglass)
- Headlight bulbs
- Head gaskets
- O2 sensors
- Oil filter multiple times (obviously)
- Restored brush bar
- Front passenger window motor
- One of the driver's seat motors

The following are pending repairs:
- Head gaskets (all upper engine gaskets)
- Master cylinder

Chronos still has the original Land Rover speakers, which sound awful, and Stock Cassette, Radio, and CD players. (I use a cassette converter for my phone and listen to Tool from the 6-track CD player)

I have also created a Lego replica of Chronos.
