Patrol tubular bar work

Post by Dustin » 24 Aug 2017 15:39

I'm toying with the idea of building tubular bar work for my troll.
Winch bar, front scrub bars, rock sliders, rear scrub bars and rear bar/wheel carrier.

Does anyone have tubular bar work on their Patrols ?
I'm trying to figure out how to make the rear scrub bars work with the rear door and wheel arches.

My bull-bar is basically a clad tubular structure, but that doesn't help you much.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Nice Dirk :thumbup:
The GQ's are much easier to do rear bars and rear scrub bars, because the rear door is separate from the fender flair.
The problem I'm facing with the GU is the rear fender flair is basically 3 parts which most incorporate the rear doors.
I'd like to keep the lines of the bars in line or close to the front scrub bars so it does'nt look too odd.

Peter, I've also been considering cladding the lower portion of the winch bar, because I'd like to protect the front veilance from stone impacts.
I don't want any rust creeping into the bodywork from stone chips that go unnoticed.

Here's a few pics of the GQ's

These GQ's you posted now all seem to have had corner chops. That makes it a lot easier, but to my mind a corner chop is a huge rust-bucket-waiting-to-happen.
