    Just picked this up yesterdasy - a 300tdi offroad toy. I love the thing.

    Ignore the headlight - new one is on it's way already.

    Hopefully I'll have some more, much dirtier, photos soon!

    Edit: Forgot, my elise has a chav-stripe now too.

    Very nice! Which spec of Elise did you end up with?

    Spec on the Disco? Lockers or anything, or just the usual snorkel, beefy steering arms and a couple of guards? :)

    The Disco is awesome! I'd love something like that for greenlaning if I had somewhere to store it.

    A little detailing under the bonnet:

    Also doing a little work to an inlet manifold for it:

    How I got it from a Jaguar breaker:

    After blasting:

    After first couple of cuts to shape it:

    Now just need to work down the grades wet-sanding it, then follow up and start working through the polishing process. Not a quick job!

    Beautiful car, some serious detailing work going on!

    My Dad had a few XJ's - started with an XJ40, moved up to an X300 6 like yours (but baby blue) and then an X308-R in black.

    Currently this is what I ride not drive. Previous vehicles include a Vauxhall Combo, Volkswagon Caddy, Volkswagon Touran and a Nissan NV200.

    All work related vehicles so never owned one of my own. All driven over the past 7 years or so xD

    That Combo I did 80,000 miles in two years.

    Hey mate

    The elise is just an early S2, so K-series.

    Disco is fairly simple at the moment, the previous owner did all the work and bought it as a standard car 18 months ago. It's jacked up, with guards and what-not, a great winch, and just waiting for proper lockers and a better driver than me, ha!

    I just want your Disco for a day in the country to try and get it stuck somewhere! :D

    Oh, and your Elise at the track for a day too, please :thumb:

    Two very nice vehicles to be driving - you've got good taste!
