    Finally, I have fully working central locking on all doors... Works perfectly, no need to lift locks or turn keys to get in and out... Proper chuffed to bits, well worth the £3.50 quid for replacement springs.

    Roof lining and front bumper are the plans for this week I think. :thumb:
    Slowly ticking off the to do list...

    Wasn't planning on doing this today
    Just had a sudden burst of energy
    Roof lining was out within half hour

    Trimming took a good couple of hours
    Could of done with some stronger glue around the sunroof blank sections
    But it's a massive improvement
    Refitting took another hour and a half
    I still need to flick the window seals over the trim around the roof ( alpine) Windows

    No befores sorry
    Was done between the showers but it was hanging!!!
    I'll try grab better pics tomorrows

    Got the Disco back from my mate's today...
    He's done the 3 bits of welding picked up as advisories on Mot, plus a couple of other bits he found
    He's then treated the fresh metal to some protection... ( this was one of my jobs to do )
    Buts he's took it upon himself to treat the full underside...

    Well the Discovery has gone on to a new owner
    I presume the new owner will be along to confess soon... ( I was contacted a while back on Detailing world and the rest is history, it was pretty much a done deal )
    I'm sure it'll only get better from here on and it will be missed ( grown very fond of it, wasn't expecting too )

    I'm sure I'll be back soon with a 5 door variant in eva 300 or Td5 form
