Hi Scott

Yes, this Gunbuggy does sport some strange mods. The bins have steel mesh to the bottom surface. Not sure what the bins hold. They appear too wide and too short for jerry cans.

Also of note are the two 50cal ammo cans sitting on the 106mm storage bins at the rear (LHS and RHS). These are permanent fixtures and are bolted down. Not a civilian mod as they can be seen on the Gunbuggy whilst in service.

That seatbelt fitted to the doors was fitted by the current owner after he purchased it from the military, as was the fitting of the ex Ferret back seats. This vehicle, along with others was used in a promotional shoot carrying pretty little "Virgin girls" around the Sydney metropolitan area a number of years ago and these mods were fitted to satisfy NSW RTA worries.

Thanks for that info Glen. Any photos of the promotional shoot?

(I have removed my seatbelt and seat posts now that we know the correct reason why they were fitted)
