I wondered about the cappings and Patina - one way round would be to strip it back to the frame and pipework and have the whole lot galv’d ... when it weathered in it would go with the patina and look like the original Landy palette 🎨

you can't galv a roll cage for competition as you have to drill drain holes and the galv hides bad welds so I wouldn't pass scrutineering

Not much happening on this, this trip home but I had to do something lol or its not going ahead so I sorted the rear bump stops 

66787678_670904113336655_69726443758556266303972_670904216669978_160193329428955

They are bump stops from a Lada Niva and cost $7 plus post for new ones lol and are nice n soft with a long travel compared to alot of other factory options 

The second photo is with the rear axle taking the weight off the jack stands and I still have an inch of travel left on the shocks so my guess is full jounce will be around 3-4 times the sprung weight once the springs are in there so should be safe 

And yes it is made from old galv pipe lol I'm trying to use up all my offcuts and recycled steel.... I'm working towards when I can move into the new shed..... assuming I can get the council to give me permission to build one lol 

Right now onto the LS swop into my 40 series Cruiser lol
