Hi Dave

Not fully cognoscente of the layout etc of the Raven equipment and racking but I assume its one of the box frames I've been asking about.

Took a few piccies after fiddling and repairing, will get to the various bolt hole identification later.  First the vehicle late this afternoon after I fitted a FFR tarp.





First I had to replace the damaged rivnuts in the ROPS and rear bar then started sorting out what fits where.  II found that the tables don't fit between the dicky seats and the distribution box and you can't fit two tables on the RHS because of a 40mm RHS inside the tub at the front.

Not sure what they are for, but my FFR only has one, on the passenger side. Right pain in the posterior to remove, after a rivnut or two started spinning...

Apparently they are 25mm spacer tubes for the Raven radio rack when the ROP bars were installed.  Given that I have neither the Raven radios or the racks ATM I'm going to remove them, at least from the RHS so I can fit a pair of tables.

They're mounted to the body by large self tappers, and used to mount the Raven radio stacks via M8 bolts/rivnuts and the spring mounted 'L' shaped brackets at the base.

48-852 has been receiving a few parts from 49-353 over the last week.

The broken plastic grill, rear convoy lamp and NATO plug cover have been donated last week, today the RHS front outer guard came off in preparation for going on later, but it's such a shame to destroy the 16AD logo however.  :'(

I'm going to salvage the Steyr barrel clip for a broken one and one of the missing Raven frame clamps over the weekend. It may sound like sacrilege but a few components are migrating from 49-353 to Ikea my coil sprung 110 6X6 to complete the V8->4BD1 conversion.

Not to worry, 49-353 will be reborn after a full nut and bolt resto by another enthusiast.
