callum Posted August 2, 2007 Share Posted August 2, 2007 http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?showtopic=6398 following on from the above... mine is similary rubbish, although maybe not quite as rubbish as the one les got. seems crossmember manufactures have no files to round off sharp edges or abrasives to clean up the metal and avoid outrageous weld splatters all over the place. refers to modifications required to the defender variant of the crossmember. my intention is to have a friend seal up lots of the rust traps with plate (although the webbing on a defender crossmember makes it more difficult) and a gas welder. one thing les did was put in crush tubes in order to attach a nato hitch without getting the crossmember squished. mine is similarly untubed, but has some wiggly plate in the cavity at right angles to the crossmember, presumably to prevent crushing. with the addition of some thick spreader plates front and rear is this sufficient to stop it getting crushed or will it need the original reinforcement cut out and replaced with tubing? thanks callum Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
