tobes Posted February 19, 2006 Share Posted February 19, 2006 I have recently bought a disco commercial for work which means my old 300tdi discovery is just begging to be hacked about with the grinder!! So i have been running through a few ideas about bobtailing/tube back. i really like the orange RR that was posted on here a few weeks ago (tangoman's?) and would like to do something similar, without creating a replica!! I had the rear body crossmember replaced about a year ago because of rust and would really like to do away with it for longevity reasons. Do i need to have the rubber body mounts that are existing on the discovery? are they there just to improve ride? to stop flexing of the bodyshell? or...?? Can i make up a tube 'space-frame' and weld directly onto the chassis and tie in the remaining shell into that? Does anyone have pictures of anything similar they have seen/done? Also, is there any reason why i cant use the winch bumper off the front as a rear cossmember? Thanks very much, Toby Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
