Axles are on and tested. So more adjustments on the willwood hydraulic handbrake and on breaks generaly.

Also we fitted the omp internal roll cage. A friend of mine made some mods to the cage so now is as the J part from the

fia book regulation says.

A set of simoni racing reclining seats is also on the way. Harness is 5 point from sparco.













I can't see which part of the cage that has been modified. It all looks standard OMP. Have the same OMP cage in my Jimny.

+3" Trail Master. Fox 8.0" R/R shocks. ORA HD winchbumper. Warn M8274 Ox-motor + Hellfire gears, Delta-Tek mainshaft and freespool, overvolted. 33/9.5 R16 Silverstone Extreme. 5.14:1 ratio SJ transferbox in RW cradle. OMP rollcage.

Yep, I was under impression that FIA roll-cage requirements are universal, but looks like it is not true. I was refering to App. J Article 283 (cross-country rally).
Reg. Disneyland - I mean that it was fun when the world was spinning around :) And probably the cage has saved my life, cause the only trauma I had was a little pain in spine and neck for two-three weeks. Living space was not damaged at all.

Awesome work with the patrol axles. Did you have to change the radius arms much? The standard ones are still fairly weak as we had one break last weekend off a tree stump. Any photos of the radius arm mounts on the patrol axles?

The difference between a standard omp cage and mine is the way that i have attached it to the chassis, not only to the cabin. I will upload some photos to have a look.

The radius arms are not the stock one. I have replaced them from the start with new reinforced with ball joints to the chassis side from 4xfa.

Rear radius arms brackets, ( the rear drivers side is in one piece with the panar bracket)





And a pic of my friends car who builds my car.
