Yes i know, you'll say WTF he wants to do with Disco 2 headlights.

I always said keep it stock or swap the entire vehicle for all those headlights conversions, but ...my 2002 OEM headlights have lost all their black effect inside after 2 years only.

I don't want to pay again for a thing like that.

I'm considering swapping for newer headlights and when i looked at the Disco 2 one, it looks like their proportions are much more interesting thant all those L322 headlights.

Has it been tried at least? :think:

If you are serious about swapping headlights consider the Rangerover Sport lights. The size looks much better.

Paint : did it once. Result : one headlight won, and the other lost. :lol:
You need a heatgun to dismantle those and sometimes, the glass breaks

A very very quick and poor attempt, gives the general idea though.

Find me some big high resolution pictures of your rig and a disco 2 head on that I can use and I'll be happy to combine the two properly so it looks a bit more realistic. I'm somewhat lacking in pictures of disco 2's

Thanks.
Looks very good so far. I'll check those lights in situ to see what can be done

I actually like it. Are the dimensions similar between ours and Discos? Also, the 03-04 D2 headlights are pretty expensive, as they pretty much drop in to the 99-02's, and lots of people do the swap.

I actually said WTF. But the photo does show the potential of such a idea, I like it.

Just my 2 cents, replacing all 6 light bulbs with the Osram silvers stars make a big difference.
The Gems engine mod on alty is a must, run a thick cable from alt to battery direct and three things happen.
1 Brighter lights
2 You automatically double up your starter cable, in effect the starter turns alot quicker
3 Shorter cable = less voltage drop to battery keeping it in its ideal charge state

I already have HID Bixenons inside those. That lights the darkness like daytime :twisted:
That's my 2nd favourite mod on my rig, after the Gen3 and bilstein combo 8)

How about this...

Nice but as you've done, the bonnet needs attention.
I think that's the detail that ruins the plan.
If you don't do it, that won't look good.
If you do it, that will look like a Disco2

Go for it. If you have the required skill ther is no reason that it won't turn out good.

You do lose the wash/wipe with all those conversions.

Wouldn't mind the bi-xenins though!

RR3 sports lights will fit and look better as I've had a pair to compare, bonnet corners dont match so I dumped the idea.
I have to disagree with you there. The RRS lights fit worse - which is why you see all these conversions done with FFRR 06-09 lights, too. And I've had both in hand to compare as well. The hood (bonnet) does need reworking which wouldn't have been a problem for me as I already have a bent bonnet corner due to a close encounter with a tree :p but the amount of metal I would have had to butcher away from the headlight/rad support panel put me off.

I had the idea with these headlights too, Flo. The problem here is really the upper inside corner. Silly thoughts during long, boring conference calls lead to thinking about butchering a pair of these lights, butchering a pair of P38 lights, making new plastic lenses... :roll:
