Only one sun roof? Was it aftermarket after the parking garage accident?

Pretty sure the truck came from the dealership like that. I think the damage done in the parking garage was a tiny dent in the back.

As the new owner of this vehicle I must say I am very pleased with the deal. I needed a rebuilt R380..which was gonna be $2300 shipped from Urban Land Cruiser. I also needed the pedal box, LT230, front drive shaft, etc...needed to put it in a 93 LWB. I have been trying to find all the parts I need locally without any luck and it was going to cost much more than just buying this. Plus, I will use some of the stuff on it to clean up the interior of my 94 D1. I'll never be able to afford a Defender but I'll have a heck of a nice 5 speed, diesel LWB when this is all over

Say what you will but each to his own!

Tell Doug thanks again

Frank

Many base disco I were sold new with a front webasto (I think) sunroof. Not sure if it was port installed or dealer, but there are a ton of them. The sunroof is the same size as the land rover one but has slightly different features.

Be aware that the Pedal panel on a RRC and Disco are slightly different. Not the end of the world, but not a direct bolt in either. Regardless, a good opportunity to ditch the RRC hydraulic ABS.

Thanks.

I plan on documenting the project. I've been researching it for awhile and have noticed there are several issues such as the pedal box but it should be fun. I definitely plan on getting rid of the abs pump. The brakes are nice but I cringe every time that thing turns on as it is a ticking time bomb.
