    Smile Disco Project

    Thought I will share a few pics of my Disco Project, I bought an old Disco 2 body and diffs only, then managed to get a smashed one as a Donor. The finished car now ruins with a 4.6 V8 Auto box, 50mm lift on suspension, coils all round with air helpers rear. Winch, dual battery 270ah, solar panel, inverter etc. It is still evolving though. December it had done its first 1000k's and to run it in properly I took it on a Tiger Fish and overland trip to Botswana and Zambia, came back after logging another 8000k's and not a single hiccup. She is thirsty though

    Wow! Looks fantastic. Well done. If you don't mind - the Gull Wings details on where you got them and what they cost.

    Looks brilliant, enjoy putting miles on the clock and fuel in the tank.
    When you say "she's thirsty" just how thirsty?
