Thanks Dan.
Welding was alright but every bar was shaped to suit as they vary and are only similar to the mirrored one on the opposite side. All carefully ground and linished with a finger sander, even on the inside of them! Took many hours to get perfectly straight. Was hammered over a round bar stake that fitted inside both before and after welding and every face checked against a ruler.

Just a quick update.

Fitted up the new 50mm-2" longer grille today to check the clearance. I went more than I needed to increase the airflow and proportions of the grille. Have 20mm-3/4" of room above the radiator filler cap and the power steering reservoir now.


Got that truck look back again. The step doesn't look that bad actually, bit like the MB and CJ's had.


I will deal with the guards when I move the fronts in an inch each side. Want to change the shape of the part alongside the grille anyway.

Aside from better function, I think the extra height added to the grill is great for proportions. Sure is looking good, Marcus.

Looks Great Marcus.
The extra size on that grill actually looks better than it did before.
