been following your thread for a while now, i just thought that id comment on it, as id does look very nice indeed,

in fact one of the nicest 200tdi disco's ive seen in a while, not too OTT but not standard.

mikey

ps, im going for a similar look with my disco, exept with square spots on the top and no extra arches.

Use it and abuse then flog it/break it

If you know Drizz then this would come as no supprise.... ;)

He's sent so many (Usually good) car shells to the scrappy that China had to write to him to ask him to send no more as they have a stockpile of steel now. :lol:

They have been used quite thoroughly and work very well.

Tried out the Discos roof rack, handy to have:

My mate gave me a set of ladder brackets, so a plan was hatched:

Welded a nut and washer on the end:

Cut the hook parts off and drilled some holes:

Marked and cut my waffle boards:

Tried them for size:

Welded some plate on to stop them dropping:

Drilled a hole and rivetted them in place to stop them spinning:

Cut down the bar and job done:

make sure you take those off before encountering trees, all 3 of mine died this way :P .

they were useful though, i could carry haybales on the roof and use the racks to stop them moving lol.

That would leave to 2 rods welded to the bonnet and surely that would be worse.

And also all sharp edges have rubber caps, and with the height of it, the person i runover would have to be a giant to hit them. Itll be the bumper, spots, steering guard, Big tyres that would get them long before that! Thats why i put them as near to the windscreen as possible...
