    Sounds interesting. I'm thinking of adding the power mirrors setup to my Disco 2 just because they weren't an option for the LHD North American Discos to have them.

    I think Grrrrrr means pics of the finished item on the car.

    Ah, they don't look any different than the standard mirrors really.... Well, the disco2 mirrors are slightly smaller than the P38 ones, so these are a bit smaller, but unless you're looking for them you wouldn't notice any difference.

    I realised after finishing up that you could probably use the plastic case and the mirror glass from the P38 mirrors with the innards of the Disco2 powerfold gubbins if you wanted to keep the look of the P38 mirrors, but I kinda like the smaller ones.

    If I actually see daylight any time soon I'll grab a couple of pictures.
