And stashed a few things in it ... :p

Sidestep Install ...

Post by Bantum » Fri Jul 24, 2020 5:41 am

Before Cronovirus struck, I was in the process of sourcing some bits for the Sidesteps :

Hardware :

Image

Cleaned up some of the mounting holes :

Image

And proceeded to locate them :

Image

Drilled & bolted on the back :

Image

Test fitted the front :

Image

Didn't have to drill any holes, but the splash guard needs to be repaired / replaced, so made a template :

Image

And test fitted it :

Image

Then marked it out on some signage sheet I found :

Image

& Cut out with jig saw :

Image

That was far as I got when things shut down ... :/
( was not able to travel to site where ute is located )

Hope to pick up where I left it - when things go back to 'normal' ...

Looking good Bantum!

The first image in your post about the grille restoration isn’t working for me :(

I love those side skirts. Might have to one day look into what I can modify to fit my brumby...

Sorry to hear you can’t access your brumby with the current restrictions. That would be mega frustrating!

Keep up the good work!

Cheers
