Easter 2019 was a good break although we only went out for a drive on the Sunday, to a local LR Club show 'n shine. See: http://remlr.com/forum/index.php?topic=6042.0

One little job that got done was the etching and painting of the Ibis Troop Scoop Cargo Barrier. The fabricated/folded aluminium barrier was purchased recently. See:  http://remlr.com/forum/index.php?topic=6035.0


One side is flat. The barrier won't get too filthy when travelling as the rear of the canopy will cover it. The flat side could easily be fitted with brackets to hold a snatch strap, or a long-handled wheel brace, etc. As long as the fitted item is thin enough to fit behind the tail of the rear canopy. If the non-flat side faces out (the alternative I prefer) then the barrier could multi-purpose as a cuppa prep-table. It just needs a matching flat piece attached (unpainted on the inside), with hinges at the bottom and a budget lock at the top.

Pics: these show the choice between showing the flat inside "outside" ...and the non-flat inside "inside".

Time for more news. The tac windscreen canvas by Rod looks good. I will attach pics below showing it on Rod's LRCV -the one with Air Conditioning :)

Still haven't done the snorkel but I have put together another Expansion Tank upgrade, this time for Stevie's FFR. Seems to be a obsession of mine to find ways of fighting global warming.

Also acquired a spare NOS thermostat, a spare Blackout Switch and a Brake Booster from Brian to be rebuilt.

Nice one Ross - It will be interesting to see how much cooler/warner (depending on the thermal circumstances) it makes the vehicle.   You are making the LRCV into a real  SUV - survival utility vehicle!

Hi Frank, the other LRCV should be wearing one soon as well.

I'm now making a large awning, DIY.

I got some lengths of C section aluminium in 3mm as a start the other day. I have looked on google for a supplier of polyester in brown or green. I looked at outdoor furniture UV weatherproof materials. And marine vinyl. Not what we're chasing. The usual tent material is called ??

Anyone know the right name of the material and a supplier?

Wax Converters sell a wide range of canvas products, both Defence colours and regular lines. Lots to choose from.
