A little more progress with priming.







I have done more than this, but a lot of it is prep work. Bonnet and radiator support panel are next and some degreasing of engine and gearbox. I will also be refurbishing the brakes as needed, as they were working fine when I got the vehicle.

It hurt to cut these, but thanks to Harry (Mr Ho Har) there are new front panels to attach next time I visit.





And I found this whilst stripping the map light panel. I assume it was for auction purposes?

On my buggy the top hole is still attached to the inner panel (which is a bugger to undo), on your cut it seems your top bolt hole is cut away.

Was this how it came originally?

What are other peoples buggies like?

Thanks Dennis re tips on photos. It seems everytime I go to upload something has changed and it never works the same way. Oh well.

Diana, we just cut the guards using sizes taken from the originals and checking them against Glen Hutleys. Measured, checked and measured and checked again and then cut. It should work.

Hi Perry

I'm sure it will work. It just looks different to mine.  On 112 726 the top bolt sits right over the corner of the slope and is really difficult to get a spanner onto and you can't use either a ring or socket.

It would be interesting to see what has been done on other buggy ARN.

It's so long since I removed the guards I don't actually recall if that bolt was an issue. Unfortunately the guards both old and new are still in Qld, but when I am reunited with them I'll check and get back to you.

I gather you'll be taking something else to Corowa?

Actually trying to take 3 not including the buggy. Gog the SADF SIIB, 50-422 Perentie FFR and 30-146 SIII FFR. Steve D will probably take one on the S-Line and am trying to get someone from the LROC Sydney to drive one of the others.  If the buggy does go it will likely go as is on a trailer, because I want to do a full nut and bolt on it and don't have time between now and then (although I could do a quick squirt of green).  If however the numbers are needed to top the Jeeps, then on a trailer it will go, both Gog and the SIII are set up to tow a civilian trailer and Gog even has the brake controller installed.
