Thanks! But I'm still heading for the look in my inspirational photos -





I've ordered thesame arches you have on the back of Ulysses but bigger...





So they can be cut down (the logo side cut off as you did) to size and shape to suit the buggy look. So cut the leading edge down on the front arch, but leave the rear of it to (hopefully if I've measured right) nicely attaches to the firewall, and then the reverse for the back arches...? B)



Something like that (for the front)

Another job for Mr. Angry!

Durable and cheap (£35 each) if those pesky trees try and steal them! ;)

They certainly do... I’ve admired the Ford EX Concept for many years, but only recently found the yellow Brazilian ATV / UTV (Quad) which is more practical inspiration for a UK / Jimny based buggy, as it needs a bit more weather protection (and undergrowth?!), wading capability and more likely to pass through the gestapo tests (VOSA / DVLA)

On a more positive note... Jamie just delivered the wheel arches :woohoo:

I'm sure you will give it your best go but if you need assistance and it means having the buggy there, I will personally force people to help you! :laugh:

New Year, and some changes have occured!

I've sold both the Jimnys and retired from greenlaning for a bit... I do hope to return in a milder more relaxed manner when this buggy project is finished though, and if my health and eyesight hold out! :blink:

Having sold 'S200KYS' the big blue Jimny, I had the registration on retention, when someone (who will become apparent) PM'd me and asked if I wanted to sell it! So when a deal was struck, and before I spent the proceeds n something mundane, like bills!, I thought I'd re-invst it in...



A bit more meaningful for the buggy... being as it's based on an X-reg donor Jimny, and loosely inspired by the Ford EX concept car, and ir's an, errrr... '8GGY' - about as close as I could get on a registration plate!

Back to it soon, just sorting a few things out first... ;)
