    It's been a busy weekend, I've had a bit of time to spend on her.

    I decided to work on the seats.



    I finished drilling the back out as I'd started to ages ago.


    I tried a new technique to flare the holes. BFH.



    Worked quite well



    I made a boo boo, started drilling in the wrong place. FFS. Managed to save it though.

    Firewall/bulkhead next on the list

    Gotta love a bit of Cardboard Aided Design


    Transferred onto sheet



    Tried for fitment



    I welded a strip of steel to the lower chassis so I could rivet the panels to it.



    Riveted the top of the panels to the bottom of the dash.



    One complete unit. It's really stiff when the dash is fitted to the roll cage so I'm happy.

    Got round to finally making the mounts for the passenger seat. Gave them a coat of Matt black.

    Centre console.

    I wrapped the battery cover with the same 4d carbon fibre vinyl wrap that the rest of the buggy is wrapped with.


    I then set about designing a centre console to mount switches onto, and to hide the wiring for the motors behind.

    First I decided what angle I wanted it to sit at and the length


    Then cut a rough aluminium template, no cardboard here, precision engineering methinks!!!



    Once I was happy with the profile I spent a bit of time transferring the template onto aluminium sheet.


    Cut and folded. Not bad for a first attempt



    With the obligatory edge trim


    Test fitting it onto the battery cover


    Vinyl wrapped


    Batteries fitted


    All back together now. The seat runners secure it all into place.

    I flipped the buggy over!


    This was so I could work on a bash guard to cover the brake rotor and chain sprocket.
    They poke out past the lower frame rails and any impact would render the drive line inoperable.

    I used some 5mm x 50mm aluminium flat bar and rolled to suit the radius of the rotor. Then cut it all to length.


    Rivnuts inserted underneath at convenient points



    I used the mig welder to stick it all together

    Might build a kids rock crawler.

    Three weeks later. Built my kids a rock crawler. Lol

    Make all look so easy. Almost wish I was a kid again so I could fit in it.
    All dressed up and waiting for the beer to arrive.

    Latest update. Seats are refitted after being painted black. Gonna start stripping it all down soon to paint the roll cage.
