My modified rockslider/footstep are done and I have cut my new hood so it fits.
I'm working on a space so the hood are mowed forward.

Now I have made the spacer for the hood.
The spacer is 15 mm thick.

20190721_204150

I also have finished the hood.
On the original hood there is a lip folded on the lower edge, I wanted to try and do that on my new cut hood.
If I don't try how should I learn?

I'm really happy with the result.

Great work! Your fenders and hood turned out great. Nice work on flanging the hood including the radius cut. Looks really nice!

If you gonna wait until you have time, it will new be done.

You just have to decide to do it and find the time.


My build have been on and off for the last 18 month, last 3 month I have put in a bunch of hours but the 3 month before that very feu hours.

Today was a very nice day, I have done my front driveshaft, and it cleared the bell housing without a bearing which have been a big worry for the last month.

So for the moment front and rear drive shafts are mocked up and just need to be fully welded and have new uj.

Last thing I did tonight was to start with the exhaust and have managed to fit it in between the driveshaft and upper three link bar with minimum modification

I have finished my battery holder and you see the beginning of the bracket for the limit straps

20190817_221238
Lining up the brackets for the limit straps

20190822_202207
Hoses are made and fitted for the steering ram.

20190822_202055
It was very difficult to find space to route the hoses properly, I was forced to use 3/8" hoses instead of the 1/2" that I wanted to use.

20190824_010342
I also have made a detachable bracket for ignition coil and misc hoses etc.
Trying to not mount anything on the fender to have easy access to the engine and other parts.

20190822_211629
Front end is basically complete it's missing some hoses and wires.

20190822_212355
Not much space for the winch, with stock length frame rails, but it fit and works.

I have made adapter plates for the rear brake callipers

20190830_220615
Paper template of the adaptor

20190831_013048
Rough cut and drilled to fit the axle

20190831_223936
I turned some spacers on the lathe

20190831_223952
The bent piece of steel is to get clearance between the disc and calliper

20190831_211324
Spacers tacked to the adaptor, I used the electric parking break to hold the calliper in the right place when I welded.

20190831_234707
After some grinding we have the finished adapter

20190901_011601
Mounted on the axle.

I'm going to use two switches for activation of the parking brake, then I can use them separately as a steering brake.

What is that e-brake from? Im probably behind the times, but I've never seen one. Is it using hydro or magnets like a trailer. (I guess it is unlikely to use magnets because of power draw for parking) Is it considered an emergency brake? (Will it work if your brake line gets a major leak)

Sorry for all the questions.

Sorry for all the questions.
The callipers are from Volvo V70 2014 and newer.
Basically it's the same calliper on XC70 and S60 also, they are available with vented and solid discs and in different sizes (diameter)

It works with a motor that extend the piston, the return and adjustment of the piston is handled by the piston seal as a normal calliper.
The adjustment will work without the hydraulics attached.

On the Volvo the "clamping" force is controlled by the current.

In and out of the parking brake is controlled by two wires that just changes polarity.

It will work as emergency brake with damage/lost brake hoses.

I hope this answers you questions.

Very interested to see how you toggle the e-brake on and off? Simple three way rocker switch like a winch? This system has proven to work well in Canada and I definitely wouldn't be opposed to trying it. Problem is the aftermarket/replacement calipers don't come with the module/motor so I'll have to junk yard some

I bought mine from the junkyard.

The callipers only had 8750 miles on them and I payed 50 bucks each and that included bracket, calliper and motor

I have made new brackets for my rear panhard bar.
The bar became 140 mm longer with the new brackets.

20190902_221031
it needs some shaping to get the final form, I will do that when I take of the axle for welding.

20190905_220350

20190905_220356
It looked boring so I added a dimple on the side also.

20190906_220854
The finished bracket.
It will be welded on three sides of the frame.

20190907_211027
Some more reinforcement plates.

20190919_195348
And tacked in place.


I finally figured out how to do my rear limit straps.
20190919_194746
So now I have measured the length and have ordered the correct length.

I had to make a bracing to keep the winch mount from flexing.
20190928_235341

20190929_002753
I'm really happy with how they turned out and they took way to long time to make.
