READ­ERS’ RIGS

I just fin­ished an en­gine con­ver­sion to a later 4.0-litre V8 from a Dis­cov­ery 2, with a Wolf ECU, high-com­pres­sion pis­tons, dyno tune, ex­trac­tors, etc. Other than that, the mods list is small: 2-inch lift, re­stored in­te­rior with Golf GTI seats, new wa­ter­proof car­pet, head­lin­ing, full sound in­su­la­tion, cus­tom dash, dual bat­ter­ies, spot­ties, and cus­tom DIY kitchen, stor­age and sleep­ing setup in the back. It also has a roof plat­form up top for the Oz­tent, and a Front Run­ner wheel car­rier at the back. Not per­fect and it will never be ‘fin­ished’, but it’s an awe­some, fun clas­sic tourer with heaps of char­ac­ter. Best places have to be Vic High Coun­try and the NSW Blue Moun­tains.
