Paul’s Land Rover Discovery 1 300tdi


1998 Landrover Discovery 1 300tdi “Heimdall”

Quite simply one of the most heavily modified Landrover Discovery’s in the country. Since buying the vehicle, that had originally been modified for Overlanding, Paul stripped it down and rebuilt it from the ground up. After the initial welding was done to repair the usual areas that rot, Paul and Chris started recording the modifications and repairs that were been done to the vehicle. After convincing Chris that he was going to paint the vehicle in this mysterious ‘indestructible’ paint called Raptor, Paul’s nickname was born.

Our YouTube Channel documents the numerous changes that Heimdall has gone through. From having the roof chopped to lower the centre of gravity to now sporting a new trayback design ready for a custom, demountable bespoke aluminium canopy. It’s toured the Pyrenees mountains 3 years on the run and is now nearly ready for even more adventures once the 2020 Lockdown comes to an end.
