i am bored with my disco now that i have finished building it.only had it off road twice and both times it was amazing went every were i wanted to go,but now i am board.i dont have any thing to do to it, so not much to do at weekends any more.the wife said to paint the hall and tidy out my shed but fu'# that.i need to get back up to the garage and get building again.From the day i got my disco i set out what i wanted it to do and set about building .
200tdi 3 door,60 thow on the clock chassis never been welded,full box section sills seam welded and caped,full 4'' lift all round police speck rear coil springs with +4'' decarbon shocks,front has defender heavy duty rear coils with gas +4 shocks.full set sumo bars including drop arm for steering box,front QT radius arms to suit lift with poly bushes,heavy duty steering guard,cranked trailing arms with poly bushes,pod roof lights.heavy duty steel bumpers custom made front fitted with husky worm drive super winch.{very powerful} rear is hand built from a defender front cut plated and bent round rear.all new brakes front callipers, discs ,pads rear new discs,pads all new brake pipes fully under sealed.fitted with new black modular steel wheels {5} 8x16.tyres insa turbo special track 265/80/16 {5} only done 200 miles.wheel arches cut back and sealed to the inner arches. nato green mot'ed 11 month tax 5 month.so if i do sell it what do i build next i cant do a ninty as i dont fit in one with the door closed.the choice is limited to whats available and thats not much just now as there is not much for sale
unless i get my plasma cutter out and chop my disco up and make a tray back out of it.

i did look at a set of axles but decided not to bother.
i have been toying with tray backing it and a rear winch, but its how to do something different.
you've seen one try back you've seen them all.
I want something that when you see it it says , i haven't seen it done like that before.or that has to be DICKYS Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing
i have been looking in to 4 wheel steering but only looking as it to much money Mad

all the above sound good, mog axles are great and i think even a member on here did have simca portals for sale at one point.
what about a td5 disco chassis, with a freelander body cut back into a trayback style? i have never seen a freelander trayback, if i remember dicky you had some spare body shells just lying? tuned td5s are amazingly powerfull. just my thoughts lol!

Put ur disco body on to the chassis back to front and set it up like a forward control with footwells and steering wheel etc in the boot, would be brilliant seeing peoples faces as you overtake them 'backwards'......
