my 95 disco needs a new front clip, all mangled, i saw a range rover front clip on one a while ago, anyone know what it would take to make it fit?
lots of work obviously, and some engineering.

Interesting look.

I suspect the body lines in the front RRC fenders are slightly higher than the Disco.
I've been studying the pic you posted and compared it to a stock Disco.
The slam panel looks similar to the RRC, and even the catch looks to be in the same place.
You'll need to figure out the decker panel mounting and then the hood.
Looks fairly straight forward.
I can tell the grille mounts differently, but that is easy to overcome.

My first thought when I saw the pic, Popemobile.

I love round lights, so easy to upgrade to E-codes as I have on my RRC.
I don't care for DOT lights, E-codes light the road better.

I do like the round lights shown below, but don't have a clue where you'll find the grill.
Perhaps someone here knows.

Lamp buckets are easy, infact any aircooled VW can be a donor.

Here is Project Jay, the prototype Discovery.
Project Jay on a RRC chassis.



Not sure what this is, or where to get it.

not crazy about the first one, the round headlights dont go with the disco

I like the panel van look of the last one, always thought about covering the rear window, then i painted mine . I'd like to do a peachy paintjob on her if i ever get the front clip straightened out. either disco or classic

range rover shell and chassis is what the disco one is made of even disco 2 still shares the original chassis and passenger cell from the classic modified
as for the disco1 offroader it is based on a wag reg so it is a ex factory car and possible even a express vehicle

Regarding the registrations, WAG is a Hull suffix. You may be thinking of WAC, Coventry, which was on the press launch Discoveries.
