First i cut out all the rot from the wheelarches and welded in steel extended arches made by cutting two lorry trailer arches down the middle to make four for the Suzuki



Then i started fabricating the external roll cage.







Although the paintwork looks nice and shiney in the pictures it's actually hand painted with some of B&Q's finest as this zuki is purely for off roading  Wink

Looking good there Redneck!

One of my friends owns an SJ.  He always says they show up all the other 4x4's off road.

They were from here http://www.towsure.com/category/7261-Trailer_Marker_Lights
The only snag is that they don't seem to guarantee sending exactly the same unit  Rolling Eyes
I also got the front sidelights from there and they sent me two different types with the same order  Rolling Eyes  after phoning them they sent me two the same  Wink

I went for trailer lights at the rear as well because they're much easier to find replacements for when they get broken off road  Wink  (not that my zuxi actually needs lights because it's not road registered)

I shouldn't think so as it's just an outrigger for the bumper to fit onto and doesn't affect anything structurally

Thanks, I had actually forgotten how much work i had put into this. I've sold the zuke (and trailor) now to a fellow trialler because I needed the money to buy a new car for the road and concentrate more on laning trips.

I want to do similar with my Vitara but aren't sure what mudguards to get.  Can I ask where you sourced yours please?  Looks nice.
