    ok a bit more progress
    have the brackets to hold the winch plate made now to work out all the gussets I need am slightly copying the JRC winch bar brackets but like over kill for strength
    the winch plate arrived today along with a pulley for the winch and I am not sure on the if the bar I bought is going to work so am looking at other idea's

    and have worked out it is 1 week and a bit till Christmas so if I want a winch at Christmas time I better pull finger
    pic's to come

    and also my 3rd attempt to get bits from quadtrac worked and have the rear main to do........... and all the upper track rod bushes

    well I have the winch bar sorted ............ well sort of
    I have decide to move the gusset up so they touch the winch plate then fully weld everything but the little mr murphy was here today and have now run out of wire GRRRRRRRRRRR oh there is a bigger welder at work for better penetration (of the weld) guess the rear main and bushes will be waiting till after Christmas

    Winch plate looks good.... I was thinking about getting an orange synthetic line for my winch (once I finally get one that is)... I'm just curious what it'll look like once it gets dirty, and even more so covered in mud... that's the only thing stopping me... but that winch looks like it came with it, as I've seen a few companies that offer the orange standard!!

    Ha ha Steve I have light's to be bought, then installed, had a conversation with our local Hella ( lights etc) rep and he suggested going for a thinner style light as it would vibrate less , and make sense to me so will see what happens when it all starts coming together

    James
    not sure what the rope will look like dirty I bought the winch in a moment of madness when I had the CJ I paid 600 ish for it, will be interesting to see how it holds up to the use it will get.

    well have the air horns working now I hade a slight brain fade when I wired them up all rectified now and the gussets aren't being relocated I will be welding a bit or round bar in to fill up the gap, for me the risk is too great of it all turn to at the last minute I need to it

    ok been off on holiday all went well, winch rope is now on a bit tighter
    did have one little oops I need to fit an insolating switch between the battery and winch, it bloody heavy to push to get a jump start
    have worked out the finished look of the bar, sorry the design is in my head !!

    but the bad news is the ABS light came on when I checked the caravan lights were working now I can't get it to go out and have a WOF due in the next month, and the ABS light on is a fail Grrrrrrrrrrr Ideas anyone, I may of blown something in the ABS system ............. will pull the fuses and see what happens

    Am pulling the winch off and replacing the factory bumper for the WOF to keep it sorta legal till I have all the mods sorted

    ok front upper arm top bushes replace, the ones in the axle seem ok
    the rears uppers done and all back in

    book in for the laptop to check out the abs issue tomorrow, hope it only a reset
    then a steam clean the oil leaks, won't they don't see don't hurt them


    have found a rip in the "chassis" that I will have to fix then hide, but a muddy road a bit hard to find at the moment

    oh well it is what it is ........................
    then rip in to the bar work .................... oh and the rear main seal
