A guard chop is definatly on the cards! Perhaps make a diffrent set of guards similar to a 45 series to cover those tyres

Been playing with figures for the rear 4 link setup. This is the best setup i got using standard length control arms and sticking with only 3" lift

Iv been playing with mounting up a GU power steering box. its twice the size so lets hope its twice as strong and twice as powerful. i have to get the position right before i make a start on the coilover hoops and panhard mount. not sure how long the g-clamp will last in the bush haha :D

There was some one in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne near the Dandenongs hand building a custom Willys Jeep, who was posting on another now defunct site, turned out to be their most watched post
Last i read he was putting the body onto the chassis, often wonder how that was progressing as it is well over a year ago
He used to document his build at least every month and was doing amazing stuff that was a work of art
ps, for some reason think he was of Dutch descend ency??
Any body any clues?
