    100 inch defender pure vapour build

    When I had children I seriously considered taking the hard roof off my tomcat and replacing it with a soft top. Changing the cage at the rear and fitting forward facing rear seats. The only reason I didn't was it was beyond my budget at the time. Any chassis mod (not repair) triggers IVA including changing the wheel base. Mike

    As long as you don't alter the chassis in anyway, which makes the proportions look odd. Why not build a 100 inch tomcat I built mine in 6 months though not a soft top. Mike

    Battery / alternator

    I had a similar problem caused by the cable corroding inside the battery terminal. I ended up replacing both cable and terminal. Mike

    This is tentatively what I have in mind for the ibex when I'm no longer allowed to burn diesel. Mike

    ibex 300 build

    Yeah I must get round to sorting something to loop the rope round lower down. It is readable from speed camera hight but I'm not sure anpr can read a Q plate anyway. Mike

    ibex 300 build

    Don't know the ends are open to so I was expecting some noise. But I couldn't hear any at 70 over the rattle diesel and mud tyres. Mike

    ibex 300 build

    It doesn't whistle on the motorway so I'm not worried. I may add a fourth one at the front later and sheet it all in. Mike

    ibex 300 build

    As previously mentioned my preferred roof rack involves cage tube. This is outside my budget at the moment so a semi permanent solution. I have three lengths of 50mmx20mmx2mm Ali box these have been attacked with a holesaw and tapped into the spaceframe of the roof. Not the most aerodynamic solution but have you seen an ibex. Mike

    Well they've nailed a snorkel to it but it looks like they've knocked the top off it already. Mike
