Fix your leaking rear door for $4
If your Disco is older, or if you have added a ladder, or maybe your spare is bigger and heavier.....your rear door probably leaks in car washes and downpours. Simply go to O'Reilly's or whatever, and pick up a roll of self adheisive weather stripping. You can see in the pics where I applied it. Take a clean rag with alcohol on it and clean off where you are going to apply it. Take a heat gun or hair dryer and warm the area up. Also warm up the sticky side of the weatherstripping. Apply as shown. I went through one of those touchless car washes yesterday...the ones with the .50 cal water jets hitting your rig...not a single drop inside. You will notice that I didn't get too thick of weather stripping. The door closes great. It actually seems to latch a little smoother now.
