    Default 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.

    Albert currently have plans for the motor but if you twist his arm with a good offer, he may part.


    As for myself, I take the following:

    1. The Bullbar

    2. 3x Wheels (for my trailer so that I have the same PCD as the car.)

    3. A-pillar and wiper trims.

    4. Bins in load bay, that fits in the space of the flip-seats

    5. FOB's

    6. Rear Bumper.


    We will strip and sell.

    Take note however, we won't for example ruin a front seat by just pulling off seat knobs. If you want that, take a whole seat.

    If the carpet set is complete, it will go as a set. Will only sell loose sections if it is not complete.

    In terms of plastic trims, no problem. That will be sold individually.

    Other than that, it is a complete car with no accident damage, so there will be lots of plastic parts, lights, grille, bonnet, fenders.

    I will ship door-to-door with courier or Aramex where size allows it. You pay for that. Unfortunately, no snail mail any more. The postal service is in tatters.

    On a few popular parts there will be a price on it. For the rest, you can make an offer.

    I will post pics as soon as the car is in the yard.


    If you want something like a rolling chassis, put up your hand quickly. That will take some logistical arrangements to be sorted out.

    At the rate D2 are being stripped for spares, finding a whole one is going to be near impossible in a few years. It’s actually sad that They aren’t worth enough to bother fixing, since they are actually amazing cars..... but at least those that are trying to keep them on the road, there’s enough spares going around

    please note, this is just an observation in general. No malice meant to the OP

    Go and have a look how many kilos they generally have on the clock!

    People squeeze a lot of life out of them.


    And the argument that it is not worth it to repair a vehicle because the second value if X, is nonsense.

    In this case, what will you buy that can give you the power and comfort of a D2 for the price? Let be honest, a new Fortuner does not have the riding comfort or the class of a D2.

    For now yes.

    Albert will come fetch it later and then it will be in Springs.


    The long and the short is, with the efficient transport systems of today, it is not worth it driving around for what van be delivered to your door.

    Ja ek glo ons sal dit vir jou kan doen.

    Dalk moet ons net eers die BCU vir jou lees met die Nanocom.

    Hoeveel vir onderstel met aste, suspension en steering box. Basies rolling onderstel sonder gearbox en tc, maar met propshafts .
    Vrywaring: Niks wat ek hier kwyt raak moet hoegenaamd as feite beskou word nie.
