    So we picked up another disco2 but I don’t think it’s going to make the grade to become a Moss Expedition truck, a bit too much underbody rust for my liking, such a shame as it’s the right colour, year and interior and looks pretty good in pics, but get underneath and oops... So it will make a...

    Who says the ARB front bumpers are a 2 or 3 man install..;) So I test fitted the front and rear bumpers and then sent them to my painter to be painted in an epoxy based tesxtured finish, when these bumpers are left in their original shiny finish they are extremely slippery when wet, and you...

    LR3 is a different animal and I haven’t had to do one yet to know..but the LR3 sunroof drains leak from where it comes out of the side air intake vent..there is a modified tube to be installed from memory, you have to remove the side air intake grill to access..

    The sunroofs in these cars have always been an issue of concern so I removed the sunroof assemblies completely to paint the truck so I wanted to see how I could ensure they don’t leak, while the sunroof drain tubes on this car were still intact I found that the plastic drain tube sections were...

    Sadly to do the engine it will cost about $4500 in parts and machine shop charges, this is to do a performance cam, t top liners, new timing chain, rings bearings, redo the heads etc etc etc.. or apparently you can just buy a diesel land cruiser....lol..

    Well maybe you need to look a little closer at your lack of intellect and skills to work on them properly, thankfully I possess both...but I’m sure Land Rover misses your patronage and the Toyota groups love your witty intellect... have a nice day..
