I also installed Discovery Series II smooth steering column trim, it is just a nice upgrade over the old textured Series I trim the 95 RRC came with originally.

Did get around to attaching this today... not time yet for much else though.

Strange that it looks crooked in that picture... because it looks dead on in real life.

Can you take a picture of the steering column? I would like to see that, I assume the black DII trim won't match the black from a 25th RRC?

25th anniversary edition wasn't really "black" anyway... it was "Ash Grey" and all versions of the 95 RRC column trim (and all Disco Series I for that matter) was "Ash Grey" so 99-02 DII trim matches. DII column trim from 03 and 04 is actually "black" so that technically would not match, but 99-02 does.

Interesting... The trim on mine is okay, but it doesn't stay connected.

Mine was the same. Nothing wrong, just wouldn't stay in place. What happens a lot is the mount for the turn signal/headlamp switch and the wiper switch gets just a little loose. Two of the column trim screws go into that part. The third doesn't. When the first two can move and the third can't it twists the bottom half and the top pops loose. You have to remove the airbag, pull the steering wheel and clockspring, and tighten the screw that keeps it clamped tight. When it stays in place the trim will stay in place as well, assuming it hasn't been damaged.

I just think the smooth trim from the DII looks better. Easier to clean as well.

Curious what the steering column looks like with the new set up. Post a pic if you get chance.

Been driving it here and there, it is really impressive how well it runs. Occasionally the idle seems a bit low but the bolts for stepper motor housing on the back of the plenum were a little loose. Tightening them up and fresh gas and seems better. Battery died the other day, not sure what's up with that, but it wasn't new or anything.

My old Classics battery used to die randomly........I seem to remember something with the radio was causing it.

Might be worth looking into before buying a new battery.

Or install a cheap battery disconnect on the neg post.

I keep mine disconnected between weekly or so drives and during longer Winter lay ups.

Looks good without the front spoiler and fog lights. Not 100% sure yet I seem to remember there was a chin spoiler available that covered the steering stuff and didn't have fog lights.

The GDE had the chin spoiler plus some European models. I'ver heard they are very hard to find.

The Hunters did one year.

But I'll be putting a original spoiler on, I have a lead on a barely used one and I'll buy new if I have to. The 95 was different than the other model years.

That also is an option.....
I think it's pretty cool that LR has verbage saying to improve break over angles when off roading remove the spoiler and designed it as such.
BTW, Merry Christmas!
