defender rear cross member

Recommended Posts


I've just used one of these to cut the rear cross member off my 110.

Really impressed, I drilled a 70mm hole with a hole saw so I could see the wiring loom, and then went for it

Dead easy to follow the cut line, and the blade was just long enough to cut the full width, although I did cut from both sides

Lovely clean cut with no grinding or messing about after

Only used 3 blades, but 2 of them bent

Hope this helps someone

I often just use a good old hacksaw when cutting through the chassis to extend it, tired of get grind sparks in my face.......

need to turn the hacksaw around once you can't reach anymore with the blade, and the last bits in the middle a bit of a fiddle but

mind you these newer thin grinder cutting blades have also changed things, cut much quicker and cleaner than the old fat cutting blades.
