    Default My first diesel Disco project

    Hi everyone

    I am now giving some before pics of my new project

    I bought myself a Disco 300TDI a week ago, have the 3.9 V8 Disco 1 and the fuel bill has caught up with me so reluctantly have to sell my baby . But luckily I'm not Landy'less bought myself a fixer upper Disco 300TDI.I have removed the head as I have compression in the intake, turbo is being overhauled, injectors overhauled and while engine is open the Piston rings will be replaced(big ends and mains are still in very good nick so don't know if they have been replaced before as the head gasket is also not the original one) Interior not too bad.

    Now I am use to my V8 Disco which is a lot higher. I want to lift my new baby so that I can feel as if the swop is not that bad(Power wise) which way would you suggest I am only looking at a 2" lift as that is enough IMHO.

    I have also realised the rear right brake caliper seems to be leaking brake fluid so that also recieved attention

    I have a nice bumper that will be fitted shortly aswell and when the funds allow me I'll get a winch.

    There will be some adjustments on the paintwork aswell but that is last on my priority list
