Jeep amongst the Landy pack )

Postby Zedman » Thu May 13, 2010 9:54 pm

Also done a few minor mods

1. Made a new front bumper from some scrap, i now have front shackle points, total cost 8p, (i needed some spacers, 2p's were just the right thickness and i needed 4, I was upset I had no washers the right size)

2. Removed anti roll bar, then did road test round my nearest roundabout, cant feel any difference, oh well.

3. CB radio fitted for green laning, not sure if it works cos not many folks have CB radio near by and I strongly suspect my daughter has traded my walkie talkies with her friends for girly stuff.

4. Fitted soft top and then found out it is far quicker to unbolt the hard top and lift it off than fold down the soft top, soft top now in the skip ( it was a bit knackered )

Dont forget you will need a roof to trial.

Jeep has a roll cage so roof is not needed, its only glass fibre anyway.

I think this section covers it:
E.1.1. All vehicles must be in one of the following two configurations:-
E.1.1.1. Soft-top vehicles - must have the manufacturer’s windscreen raised, and complete manufacturer’s hood and support structure in place. The rear flap on the tilt may be secured open.
E.1.1.2. Hardtop vehicles must have the whole of the manufacturer's hardtop or truck cab with all fastenings secured and all glass in position.

Bigger problem is the hole in the radiator

The bigger problem is the hole in the radiator, anyone know if there is a repair service in the Knaresborough area for aluminium radiators ?

There's a place near Thirsk that may be able to help - they built my custom Ali radiator.
Can't remember the name of the place but give Patrick a ring at Maddison 4x4 and ask him about it.
