Another hinge question since their site is unbelievably slow.

Are they sealed at all? Or do the arms just fit tight in the openings?

The clearances of the arm are pretty tight but will probably come up with some sort of rubber or felt that contacts the arm.

Not a great pic but built a box (grey box above the ac unit) covers the hinge from the backside.

thanks for the info and link to the hinges---so I see you have support system tied to the pedal, so did you do something similar on the passenger side?

guess I should read further as I see you made a box which helps support the passenger side hinge...cool

Chris, the pedal mount was the backing plate for the steering offset box. Didn't want to drill holes all over the firewall and the proximity to mount the pedal there worked out. The box supports that tie in the hood hinges and gm swing pedal also allow for nutserts to be used to hang the ac and other accessories off of without going thru the firewall.

thanks--I'm not sure I'll do what you did right now, but I may get a wild hair and go for it, so it's good to have all those tidbits of knowledge beforehand...

Which winch...Using the factory bumper....the first choice 8274 wont work and need to find a compact design.

The Ramsey patriot 9500 was the value award winner in this shootout.

Or if I can get a co worker across the pond to ship this dark horse contender...

^ Would love to run that hydro winch but settled for the cobra which will be mounted on its side similar to this rover and using the stock bumper. Parts have been on back order and should be in another month.









Made a change to the bezel and had it coated in brass which will patina over time and will compliment my paint options better. As you can see the bezel had some pitting due to age and rust. The factory chrome is still in good enough condition and its a toss up if getting re chromed will even hold up as well.

Rear bumper.
A friend of mine used a 120 ton press brake to get the basic shape out of 10 gauge (.134") hot plate. You can see from the pics how the rest was done.

The lower corner, because it is cone shaped, was done with heat.

Care had to be taken when welding as to not distort the shape.

Not a fan of grinding welds but in this case, I was looking for something that would be decent enough to chrome ( if Tom wanted to)

There's no body filler on that? Incredibly clean work...

Very nice! looks factory except the factory never did such nice work.

Edit. Looking at it some more, are you going to put some drain holes in the bumper?

You might be looking at this pic. The bumper is upside down here.

There is no where for water to collect. It just runs down and out.

Retaining as much of the original front bumper as possible, a Red Winch was spliced in.
