You've had a full season and that's the first damage I've heard you speak of..... If that's the case, you've done very well mate.

So thinking of dramatic changes for R&B
Make a new front slam panel from 16x2 stainless tube
This can be made at work for free :)

Front protection bars from A pillar around the lights
with new front body mounts to make room for BIG tyres

Thanks to Dave for this image ;)

Then some upper outer half cage



But then that ORA jimny ultra4 thing keeps popping up :laugh:

I'll get across as soon as I can Jack, let you have a look at the WKD stuff and see if it is any good for you. My tray back kit was £500.

Matt at WKD said he has the Jimny all on CAD. so he should be able to follow those pictures and give you a price. I am considering a full challenge front end, almost landrover in style.

Dave Jones did well with "Tubebender" on eBay, getting some nice tube work for his car.

Has you know i have poorly dog and the vets stole a good amount of spare cash :(
When i can get time on jimny going to measure up and make myself a slam panel.
The front bar work will be a challenge to get all angles and rotations figured out.
I want it to be as continuous as possible less welding,Keithy as offered me a tube bender :)
And after getting the dogs first meds £60 for ten days on going.I think i will be making all the tube work myself :ohmy:
Just waiting on a reply from a Russian about some JB23 front wings,only part of my build i can't do
will be rolling the bars to go round my arches.
Going to be a slim jimny that can bounce of trees lol

Bender is still sat on the drive mate.

I like the idea of passing the roll cage through the bodywork!

Trayback it?
