Mate you got talent. What do you do for a living? Some really good workmanship there and the bit i like is that its you got the bit out of the shed and put it to use. Impressive.

Or did you get bits like the rollers and suspension as individual kits and put them together?

Mate I had to buy rollers but every thing else was fabricated either at home or work.... The Suspension A arms I made up at work just made it up as I went ... Copied some styles I seen on google images. I'm trying to find pics of them as I was making it in computer somewhere!!!! As for a job mate I am a qualified refrigeration mechanic and done that for 10yrs
then was offered a 2nd apprenticeship as a sheetmetal worker so jumped at the chance... I have a very good boss lets me use shop equipment on weekends and after work !!!!!

I picked this arb half roof rack up cheap last week, now that I have a cracking big light through the roof, the full length had to go, it now lives on my mates pajero.
I added some steel to the rear to add tail lights etc, its easily seen now, the tail lights in the rear bar are quite small so these are added safety.

not sure if I added these, this is my second roof console, has a lower profile than the last one I made.

I like the roof console. My mate made one up and looks the goods, making me want one but I don't really have any use for it. Lol

That is really neat work there The Rig but I'm wondering if you have made a bit of a mistake there, shoulden't the keg be on top of the roofrack rather than underneath it? Maybe it was full before you started?

I can see that I will have to pick your brains when the time comes for me to have a go at making a roof console. I am presently making a fridge slide and drawers for the canopy I made last summer.

hahaha you had me for a minute, I was thinking, what keg, but yes, the keg would be great if full.

go for it mate, I really enjoy making the consoles, send me a PM if you need anything.

Does the trailer float when the boat comes of the trailer with those big tyres? :-) I placed aset of 305/50/15s on a boat trailer a long time ago, took the boat off and could not get it back on the trailer due to the trailer floating :D
