very nice- notice that you had a set of patrol steel rims on your trip to the springs, but have gone back to factory alloys

wondering why the change

like that toolbox in the tub, I'm currently working on something similar to house my battery, compressor, wiring and recovery gear

Looking nice, love seeing them build up from stock. Remember to keep your roof weight down or you may find little love dimples in the roof :shock:

Looking trick mate! I'm a big fan of the old roof spotty setup, but the light bar would be a lot easier.

X2

Funny how vehicles have gone back to a stick to hold the bonnet up. :lol:

I just wonder if the extra forces applied to the hinges won't cause premature failure or cracking around the local body work.

Has anyone had struts for many years?
