A Poor Mans Defender.... SIIA 109


Recommended Posts

Loving the colour choice!

Figured if I was going to replace the damaged panel on mine I might as well remove it and have a tap on the workbench.
End cap was stuck on with the most impressive black goop i've encountered, not even paint stripper wanted to touch it, lots of gentle prying with a paint scraper got it off in the end.
Panel came out pretty good for a first time with Ali, not perfect, but far better than I expected! Just held on now with a few pop rivets until I can source the correct AN470 rivets.

Thanks for the inspirational panel work!

Thats awesome.  I'd love to have the gear in the future to be able to make entire tub sides. 

I've previously bought those rivels from central 4wd in Qtown but if you want a bunch there must be somewhere else cheaper.

@NickJ is a good dude like that. I'm sure his landie also left an oil puddle on your driveway as an extra gift :-)

As expected from any man well versed in the intricacies of British motoring engineering, I was asked to park on the street.

And requested some tools for some minor LR fettling… :)
