    Re: Discovery 2 V8 Auto stripping for spares.

    Ek reken jy wil seker wiele ook oph?

    Die simpel goed het mos 'n PCD wat jy nie op ander goed kry nie - tensy jy natuurlin in elke geval vet wheel spacers gaan maak en na enige PCD toe kan gaan.

    Discovery 2 V8 Auto stripping for spares.

    Me and Landyluvver picked up a fairly neat Disco 2 V8 Auto. Motor running very well.

    This is the non-facelift model.


    The auto box is blown, and can serve as a core for a service exchange.

    I am sure we still have the design abilities here.

    My suggestion:

    Design your trailer.

    Put it in the drawer.

    Go camp.

    Take out the design and see if you still feel the same about it.
