fresh from the powder coating here are the custom. bumpers and sliders my dad made . Turns getting bumpers made for a body which isn’t on exactly straight can be a bit of a bother.
the front bumper features a winch fairlead made by friend , the design idea was to allow a better approach angle so the bumper sits flush with the body . There are also light behind the bumper . I have used the smaller rcoffroad.eu shackles .
The sliders are a bit longer than the average ones , they also have plate which allow for mounting of the battery plate. they are also cut at a 45 degree angle for easier sliding.
the rear design is similar to the front , the shackle mounts are in a different position. the shackles are the bigger ones from rcoffroad.eu . The lower tube is offset a bit deeper for a better angle.
i am very pleased with the end result, so is my dad who took up brazing in december .
here are a couple of impromptu shots from the front of my flat.
next step is to wire up the front lights , clean up the excess shoegoo and fill the holes from the original bumper.
