Looking good, the 1256 front makes it a wolf in sheep's clothing ;)

With the extra go, good to see you're going to add more stop? When I've dropped Discovery engines into Land-Rover 90s or Series I've always uprated the brakes too.

Olly looks a bit different now than when I sold him! The work looks great, part of me misses those X14 touches on him but he looks very well looked after now. Keep the progress posted, if you have any videos of how it goes and sounds I'd love to see them!

Looking neat and 'factory', and sounding like a dream :)
