There’s going to be a fair amount of weight in the frame when fitted so thought about welding the fixing nuts to some 6mm plate so it distributes the weight on the under side , do you think 6mm will be ok ?

6mm will be massive overkill. Got any 2mm?

Oh, and as promised, the front runner offering:

I'd drill through the frame and have a peice of stainless bar that slides through under the can handles with an R clip to stop it sliding out.

 

you could even slide it out and hang stuff on it to dry or stab yourself.

 

just my 2p

Yes that's the one I saw Lewis , think mine's a bit more heavy duty than that one :D . Yes got some 2mm can use that , was a bit worried as there will be a fair weight there and that shelf is only 1/1.5mm ali . With my luck Muddy I'd stab myself :rolleyes: , have welded a strap across the top and I'm making some sort of catch for the front but not a bad thought Muddy . Got another one for you Ross this is the winch bumper I made myself might have a few pics of that somewhere

and yes I know the LAND ROVER is a bit wonky , might have been recovering from a heavy Saturday when I put it on :wacko: hick .

Well its all welded up and welds sanded , have welded a strap across the top and a strip across the front with 4 bolts welded in and will use wing nuts on there to secure it .

Then welded the tabs on the bottom for the fixing holes through the floor

once I've settled on the location I will drill the holes through the floor using those holes as guides then weld some m10 bolts in them that way I can remove it myself which is a bonus , but I will still use 2mm plate as a load spreader underneath . Then a test fit

It hangs over quite a bit so II think that I've decided that I will push it up against the seat like were it is in the photo then doctor the tool box it will just require me to cut the lid just in front of the frame then tack it to the box , luckily it just misses the hinge , then its on to the paint .

cheers Ian

I know you've put the bolts on... but what about using some lynch pins? If you had some padding on the inside of the bar it would keep it all from rattling but it would be easier to get out.

Good idea Ross hadn’t thought of them , just looked at what I’d got lying around and some bolts and nuts were all I’d got that was suitable. Will look into it , what size do you recon ?

Or you could use anti-luce fasteners
