disco 200 tdi

Post  DICKY on Mon Sep 07, 2009 10:21 pm

yep i got another one but this one is my on road off road toy.
its only a 200tdi but its not needing as much as the raingie which is getting binned Laughing
this should only take a few weeks to sort out.
i dont mind sorting every one elses for a living but not having my own toy ready sucks Laughing
not doing much to it new police speck springs {nice and soft but +2"} shocks second hand pro comp as we have a few lying around in good condiction.a set of kumo muds and my old snorkil off my fonty.

it has been reincarnated its taken me ages but hopefully will be worth it.
Its not a gleaming example but she is solid now and mechanically spot on.

got some old rrc wheels which got the minimum amount of elbow grease and a spray

things are looking up i got my winch today and a new front bumper.i am making a start at the weekend replacing my sills with new jackabil units and cutting my front arches back so i have clearance for my muds. i was going to fit kumos kh71 as i get them at cost but when i was running insa turbo special tracks on my other trucks they never let me down getting me under, over. thure any thing a tryed so i might just fit a new set at around 67 each it works out cheeper as well Laughing Laughing i dont now if i should fit a cage in this one as i am planning on going out with tazz and he usaly ends up on his roof. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil going to strip all of the inside and only having two seats and harnesses

hoping that the new place near inverness will be open soon. she is not modded for extreme stuff and the tyres are standard michelin square bock so won't be much use in clarty mud.
when pennies allow i will get some tyres for the steel wheels for off road, probably will be remould m/t as they will only get limited use.
