    Replaced Xenon bulbs on the D3. For a while now it seemed that the lights are just not what they should be. The difference with just switching the bulbs is .

    I should have done this a long time ago.

    The D2 Needs some attention. As I was lazy and didn't feel like hard work I started with the simple things that were irritating me.

    1. Gears were a mess with the gear lever standing between 1 and 2 in neutral. Ended up being the guide plate that was broken. Made a new one and that issue now put to rest.

    Next up was the missing Horn button. Designed and printed a new one. Will have to see how long it lasts and how it holds up to heat. Will reprint one with the Z axis properly setup. So final will not have the lines on it. Printed right in nylon and left in ABS. Will see which does best in the Free State sun/temperatures. Hoping for the Nylon as it's easier to print.

    Lastly moved on to the Gear boots. They were in bad shape.

    Where did you get those gear boots from?
    Mine are starting to feel very brittle and are tearing in a few spots.

    Made them myself with bonded leather. Spoke to a few upholstery places and it seems the bonded holds up well for the boots. Used the old boots as templates. Think it took about an hour to do all 3.

    Will have to see how long they last though. But it's so easy to make them that it won't bother me to do them yearly if needed.

    It is sort of an obligatory thread to share what you did, be it getting dirty, new kit, service done, mods, fixes, ideas, TIPS (lots of TIPS) new feature identified, saved an appliance, etc... I know of at least three Disco owners itching to share.
