Do share the details of the mechanical mods done, so that we have an enriching discussion.

A Question: I see polyurethane wheel fenders. Are they made by you or sourced? Need details...

The legendary badge is missing now bro!
Congrats

Great Stuff Allan! Like your work I have seen most of the builds you have posted on tbhp,seriously neat stuff. If i ever get myself a 4X4, will hand it over to you for making it Bad

All you now need is a cool webpage & go full on commercial!

Cheers!

xtreme power awesome transformation! I'm totally digging the matte color finish, seems like matte finish is the next big thing... i saw couple of rides at the ny autoshow that were black matte and looked really wicked!

Allan great job, the colour is just too good to believe. what makes me say that is you got to see it in real to believe it the finish is FANTABULOUS!!!! .One awasome build. All of Allans builds i have seen till date have really suprised me because the final fit and finish is always mind blowing just waiting to see what he is going to do with the scorpio.

Buddy was this swapping done recently if so how do you get it endorsed on RC book as i am faced with option of doing the same but not able to figure what is possible and what is not so some input or reference would help. Do you have any RTO guy who could help with this? thx

I happened to see this beauty up close last week and have driven it before. This is some piece of work and pictures are nothing compared to the real thing. The paint job is a one off and Allan's work with external roll cages is quite outstanding not just in this discovery but all other vehicles I have seen him do.

zipperone how does she drive with the DCM pick up engine is it the Turbo intercooled one as those are more powerful and can really lug the Disco well but in non turbo Indian version initial takeoff acceleration not great. I also was curious about the engine swap form RC book point of view as I am interested in doing the same. Some idea on how this DCM landi package works and the RTO process would be helpful . thx

The DMC works very well and I have tried two cars that Allan has done with the DCM engine. The other was a Defender 90. We went off roading in the 90 and I was quite impressed with the torque at hand. Th DCM is obviously not refined and as quiet as some of the modern diesels but it provides torque when you need it. Allan gets the engines overhauled himself and adds the Turbo. he as been running the DCM in the Defender 90 for a number of years without issue.

Perhaps Allan can elaborate on the performance further
