    Spent two hours stripping the front end parts off and the rear wheel arches the headlight bowls are gone and the panel that goes diagonally under the battery trays have both gone


    Theinner rear wheel arch on one side is so bad the carpet is the only thing holding it together!!

    Easy on panels @ froggatts have some nice replacement items for the D1. They sell complete inner arch and wing kits for reasonable money.

    Cheers Steve

    It’s mad as the rest of the car is solid as a rock and the main body is immaculate

    Iv used cad(paint in iPhone notes!!) to high light the parts I need to find

    Ideally just the complete headlight boxes

    I sent the pictures to the chap and he thinks there too big I will have to measure it myself as he may be looking at the wrong side of a tape measure!

    Sadly the disco looks about par for the course, nice on the outside and ragged lace in the inside. Good luck with the re panel.

    Before you invest, double check the upper body for rust. Most of that you've exposed is recoverable, but if the roof frame and D pillars are going then its only good for a tray back.

    This is what scrapped my last 300TDi Disco. The sunroof and alpine windows leak so the rot starts from the top and by the time you see it at the bottom the damage is already substancial. On mine A posts, upper part of windscreen frame where it attaches to roof and behind dash were also rotten so tray back wasn't viable.

    I think I may still have a set of alpine light seals knocking round the workshop if you need them :)
