Hell good spot Ian Thumbs Up Yes it went in to have the door painted when we returned off this holiday. It was part of the deal that it would be resprayed when I had time after the holiday to put it in the paint shop. I wish I had paid extra and had the bonnet done now Big Cry

Hi All,

Halfway through my disco 3 HSE restoration. Done a lot of mechanical, suspension, electrical work. Still got to do a gearbox flush and give it a service next week ready for its MOT. What do you think of the look so far? Still got the Snorkel, Front bonnet snow screen etc to do.

Looking good. But I'd turn the tyres round to get rid of the white writing. And if you're going to take it off road, ditch the side steps.
I like the colour and you've done a great job on the plastics Thumbs Up

Agree ditch the white lettering, fit decent rock sliders and don't fit the snorkel. You'll never need it and I think they look daft.

Looking good though Thumbs Up

I agree with the ebony black steering wheel and dash.

I have recently installed the same steering wheel and feels much better than the standard steering wheel because they get sticky and even after doing a refurb only last a year.

Good quality steering wheels!!

I disagree with Simon on the snorkel I think its a matter of taste although I admit they are not needed. I have to say they are noisy Censored on the motorway so take that into consideration if you want one. Also if you decide you do not like it you will need a new wing when you remove it. Big Cry On mine the rack is as noisy as the snorkel so it don't really matter Laughing Enjoy your D3 fella Thumbs Up
