    2004 Disco, paint needs help: extensive repaint or wrap?

    Maybe you did but I've seen them on BAT go for teens LOL I didn't say it made sense! ;) Bought mine for low 20's but that was in 2006.

    2004 Disco, paint needs help: extensive repaint or wrap?

    I guess you are not familiar with the market for the 2004 right now, especially one with low miles and otherwise in fantastic condition. Also, "sell it" ? You missed the point which I thought was explained, this is the keeper for various reasons, when I have an LR3 that gets all the mileage...

    2004 Disco, paint needs help: extensive repaint or wrap?

    Yeah, that's what I started thinking too. It would be nice to have a proper seals and windows out, doors, off, etc repaint of same factory version. I've spent that much on less useful things but not in a while. My BMW wagon has a front fender dent that's been there since the first year I had...

    LR 3/4 weak points

    I need to post converse thoughts on this though now seeing as last year this time I packed my 07 lr3 and headed to NC from WA. In May I left NC, went to MN via Ontario and northern route through Thunder Bay, then into US WAY over in BC crossing all the Canadian provinces. I was on a tight...

    2004 Disco, paint needs help: extensive repaint or wrap?

    I bought the 04 in 2006 and it is in great condition with only 92k miles or so currently. I have addressed a number of things like permanent fix for 3 amigos (custom fix kit from Falcon works in AZ) and some useful mods for camping and travel such as dual battery, hot 12v sockets, on board air...

    LR 3/4 weak points

    You need to stop using "bullet proof" and Land Rover in the same thought. No matter what you think you've done for the motor, these things will do some other random nonsense like force you to slow down and pull off the road if any oddity occurs in its computer brain regarding the suspension or...

    Suspension Fault C1130-66 : Air leaks when rocking vehicle back and forth

    Damn, are they really crap? I have not really heard or read much about them either way. We'll see if my captured rubber washer "gasket" works this time.

    LR3 Starter replacement: get the dead one rebuilt for backup?

    R&R yesterday. First time so at first the access looked super annoying but was actually easy after just going ahead and removing the fender liner and heat shields. I've taken the liner out so many times but never the thin heat shields. Then also pulled the upper A arm which then made access...

    Suspension Fault C1130-66 : Air leaks when rocking vehicle back and forth

    I have a strut that developed a damn crack in the rubber section of it's "top hat" ? about 1/2" from edge of where the damper rod comes up through the top. The top hat (unless there's another correct term) is mostly metal but where it interfaces with the innerds I suppose it has to be able to...

    LR3 19" wheels, tires, and tpms, 4 factory take-off from 07 lr3

    these tires are probably not safe due to age alone so make an offer on the wheels if you're interested.

    5 set Disco II 18x8 Hurricane, with the sweet Michelin XPC tires? Make an offer

    I have since new a set of Disco 2 I think "Hurricane" 18x8 with oldish but deep tread Michelin xpc 4x4 tires, the spare is an odd model but same size. Will try to get photos up Sunday. 255/55x18 tire size. These came standard on the Disco II. Cary, NC, make an offer, no slow or fast leaks.

    5 Defender/Disco 1/RRC 3 spoke with old but deep tread BFG MT. 245/70x16

    Sorry, thought i noted location but must have put that in the lr3 wheels post. Cary NC. i'm there right now for a bit and thought i should deal with the wheels n stuff. Age, sure, i can look up the code but they are old as hell, honestly may only be safe for trails. my guess is they're from...

    LR3 19" wheels, tires, and tpms, 4 factory take-off from 07 lr3

    Hardly used, maybe 500 miles, though from 2007, stored since. No leaks, no nonsense. Cary NC but willing to help with transport if needed. $1000 seems like a great deal in my opinion so that is the floor and will sell to first buyer.
