    Discovery 2: Re: Disco 2 Kalahari - what do you guys think?

    Sorry you are clearly not buying from the right people.

    There is no shortage of 300Tdi spares.

    A Td5 is a amazing engine but the 300Tdi is still old school, much easier to fix in the sticks.

    No the flex was because the setup wasn't bolted to anything to give more rigidity, the moment I clamped it everything was perfect.

  17. Poll: Re: 1953 Colchester Student Mk1 6" gap bed - A restoration project

    Don't waste your time, just search nickel anode on Ebay.

    They go for about R180 for 0.8x25x100mm.

    For zink try someone that rebuilds outboard motors.
    Ask for FUBAR trim/anodes.

    He also does the body filler thing and he replaced the original information plates and it looks amazing.
