    Does your D1 have a plastic battery tray liner?

    Every car I've owned, with the exception of my two D1's, has had some sort of battery tray liner that the battery rests on. Obviously my trucks have passed through many hands and these components have disappeared. Does anyone have an image or source for what I assume is the battery tray liner...

    Wading Plug - V8/R380

    All, According to the diagram below there should be a wading plug for the flywheel housing on V8/r380 Discovery 1's. However, I have been unable to find a part number for this piece. In fact I have only uncovered the wading plug for the TDI models. More confusingly I crawled under my truck this...

    Sleeping in a D1 - How would you do it?

    Been searching up and down and found very little on a sleeping platform for inside a D1. I’m about 6’ 1” and 190lbs but based on some measurements I’ve taken it looks like removing the passenger seat is my only real option. Was considering some sort of folding table to rest on the center console...
