Default Davies defender build

Here we go! I was commissioned by Davie to build a roof rack and a front bumper for his hard body defender.
Heres what I got finished this morning..


Sub rack..
Heres the pieces...



Windshield frame mount..



side bars, a little different than the 1:1 but I think they look pretty cool!!



here it is all ready for the cross supports..





And as far as I have gotten so far!

Sucks, needs to be thrown away in a garbage can near my house, lol.

As a Jeep man I am no Defender liker. Have seen them wheel though and they are though. Your cage is the best one I have ever seen made for a scaler. Same goes for your bumper. I would almost buy a real Defender for a setup like that, almost.
