Retrocosm asked me to do a cage and Winch bumper for his 1/6th Willy's jeep build, here's the result :cool:

This is how it look after I removed it from it's box (sorry forgot the pic of the box)

Front section of the tube work started

Slightly annoyingly the top windscreen bar has shifted as I brazed it in and is a little low on the passenger side, I will be addressing this later today. This picture makes it look worse than it actually is :holdinitin:

Then on to the rear,

The above picture is a little deceptive as the Stathe's swede is completely protected by the metal work.

The final steps were to build a front bumper/winch mount similar to this one.

Final part of the cage, attached the mounting tabs and bolted it down,

Then built up the winch bumper,

Thanks as ever for looking, I just need to get it packaged up and sent back, so that Retrocosm can complete the build.
