  1. The 300Tdi dash will fit in both RRC and D1 - it's not simple, especially if you want a proper job. One would wonder why? As the 200 Conran dash is simpler in all aspects except heater maintenance
  2. The Buick 3.4 litre 'Odd Fire' is the favourite, but fitting seems to be a huge undertaking. The gearbox will be a T84, T90 or T96, if it's original. The Buick lump doesn't produce huge power or torque so works well. The best information I've had on this conversion is form a guy called Brennan Metcalf; he's on Pirate and OF. Clever bloke The original lump is a 'Go Devil' , whereas the later CJ3B has a 'Hurricane'; the later was made under licence literally everywhere
  3. The genuine under bonnet stuff is fire retardant and held in place by rivets and hoofing gert washers Seeing as how you have a 200tdi - get a 300tdi engine sound proofer thing and cut it to fit - big difference, then use 'Dead Mat' tiles (10"x 10") for the bulkhead, then cover with a Wright Off Road doofer
  4. From experience, I would have a chat with your local DVSA station - and by chat, I mean go in. Take the details with you. These are the guys on the cutting edge https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/192721/VOSA_SVA_Test_Stations.pdf The Five0 are only interested in easy to prove stuff - like those issues highlighted by the ANPR camera or other such easy to use devices. They are too busy for messing about and simply not trained in the stuff the DVSA inspectors are paid to do
  5. I'd break it, properly The days of wrecking a D1 around a P&P site are numbered. D1 200 tdis are going up in value, certain 300 tdis are also going up in value (3 doors, Aviemore etc). If you run a 200 you'll know that certain parts are getting hard to find - even second hand; so 300 stuff is being put to use. A cheap replacement to engine or drive train on the 200 is to use stuff form the 300, although not as good an engine, it's got a larger variety pf readily available parts...
  6. Dodgy bloke that Nick 🤣
  7. Fold the rear seats down in the L322 and you can live in it - sorted
  8. I'm with NFU - on a multi car policy. The Disco is the only modified vehicle out of the three on the policy. It has Cat 3 business use, As does the Mighty Modus. I offer up a list of mods, signed off by a chartered mechanical engineer... They aren't the cheapest, but I like NFU. Nice folk to talk to. Got free RAC recovery this time round - which was very good, when I needed it
  9. I'll try and get some pictures - next time I see him
  10. A friend has a 2.25 with a stage 2 ACR head and a supercharger, it goes well and is relatively economic
  11. I have a kenlowe hotstart. It's the 88degree unit. It's plumbed into the heater return hose as per the instructions The mains lead goes into a pull release socket on the front of the Discovery and it's plugged into a timer and thermostatic switch. If the temperature drops below 5 degrees it switches it on, then the timer comes on at 0650... If I forget to unplug it - it releases itself. To be fair, my disco is warm in a couple of miles or ten minutes fast tick-over on the drive, but this makes ti much easier to de-mist quickly and also warms the engine block
