Not really a massive Silver fan but this colour really captures the light quite well I think!










Another "little" addition is these anodised Air fresheners!

#

Quite cheap off the Bay of E.

They come with refills and slot neatly in the dash!





It is leaning ever so slightly so I had to straighten it later!!

Grr OCD is a curse! lol




This is the thing..

off of ebay!!

They smell quite pleasant especially when blown at you with Ice cold Air con!

Also gave the TD5 engine a bit of a freshen up!

Autoglym Vinyl and rubber care!!






Need to get some autosol on the Heatshields!


For anyone considering a Discovery I highly recommend seeking out a good D2 the TD5 is a hard Lump to beat!

Sounds nice too!

My sister being the funny one she is only 7

Came out of school with this..

Said it would suit the big car, so i took her word for it

It stands proud!!

Protecting me sunglasses






Anyway!!

I had the same issue as James In that the front sunroof had started to weep!!

Damn thing..

Wishing to not carry an umbrella wherever I go, with my new found Unibond an a step ladder! yep being 6'2 still isn't good enough to reach the roof on the mighty disco!

The PO had used white bathroom sealant! to his credit is worked!

Sort of..

Anyway I had some clear that I neatly 'ish put in the crack ish.





The back one however!



Those white bits are sticky marks from duck tape the OP had used lol!

Gotta get it off but the plastic is pretty porous and the Tape is atleast 10yr old and is a pain!

Unless you are 7ft and above you won't see it lol


No water ingress since which is nice!

I'll of course repair/rebuild them eventually but being the daily i really don't have the time to rip the roof out!

More oddities from H_b.

My TD5 even though it's nudging 190k is relatively leak free

So with some Silver paint in hand and atleast 5 glasses of whiskey in me system

I decided to paint my sump





Smartens the whole affair up a bit

Pardon the Potato grade photos will take better ones when I can!


Also splodged some Clear waxoyl on the rear body!

Not everyone's cup of Joe but it will protect that part of the body, hopefully!

Wheels!!

These are Pursuit 16" wheels for anyone wondering!

Believe it or not these are "clean"




My recently acquired Meguilres clay system came to the rescue!

Plus some wheel sealant!



Also the eagle eyed will notice the new wheel nut!



I also spent myself clean in Kwikfit and fitted 4 Goodyear wranglers!

Should last!!


I'm toying with some 18" Mondials or Triple Sports!

But tbh my Head is telling me to stick with the 16's!

After buying the Mondo I had the quell the tears of the D2 by buying it a present

A nice leffer key ring!





Unlike my old metal one, this leffer one doesn't clang on the plastic over bumps!

That was annoying as hell lol
