LR003852 Cargo Net for Freelander 2

I’ve been after this cargo net for ages. It’s a very useful net that serves a couple of functions: – I wasn’t willing to pay the £60+ that is generally demanded for LR003852. I think the price these things retail at is a bit unreasonable and £30 is closer to the mark. Anyhow I spotted on on eBay and managed to bag… Read more »

The shades were bought from vanstyle.co.uk. The link to them is here The pictures show the before and after of fitting… Read more »

      No Comments on Fitting Freelander 2 Mats

Since getting the carpets mats, I’ve struggled to keep them clean at this time of year. Especially now I’m parking the Freelander in the back garden and there’s no hardened surface (yet). Decided to go for some Britpart  mats (Part No DA4800) from Salop 4×4 (They are £5 cheaper at LR Series!) . They arrived this morning and took a few minutes to fit…. Read more »

Fitting wind deflectors to Freelander 2

I’ve always wanted to fit some wind deflectors to my vehicle ever since I saw them on Ian’s Discovery  however Climair never did them for Freelander. Recently at a show I saw the Heko ones and so set about tracking some down. Finally found them on the Heko website and this led me to finding them on an eBay shop. Anyhow we fitted… Read more »

Came home from work today and when I tried to open the boot, the handle broke away from the door: – I swung into action, well I fired up the laptop and looked on eBay for a second hand part.

Discovery front mudflaps fitted

Since I removed the sidesteps I’ve been ‘flap-less’ due to the fact that the mudflaps are built into the sidesteps so when they went, the ‘flaps went, not good! As mentioned in a previous post I’d ordered the mudflaps a few weeks ago and was waiting for the opportunity to fit them, trouble was either the weather or circumstance seemed… Read more »

Discovery front mudflaps

      No Comments on Discovery front mudflaps

Next on the agenda will be the fitting of some front mudflaps, since removing the sidesteps the Disco has been ‘flapless’ due to the sidesteps having the front mudflaps built-in to the front end of the steps. I’ve already bought a set of mudflaps (part number STC50067) from Duckworth Parts in Lincolnshire, they came with all the necessary fixings and bracketry… Read more »

Fitting a Discovery dog guard

      No Comments on Fitting a Discovery dog guard

I managed to find a spare hour this evening so set about fitting my newly acquired dog guard.  Fitting is a fairly straightforward, if fiddly affair, securing the two small nuts on the underside of the bottom brackets being the most testing for my less than dainty hands. Basically once you’ve fitted the top brackets to the rearmost grab handles,… Read more »
