The doors are my own design and build, with gas ram lifters, sliding windows (Landrover Defender style) and have lockable handles and windows to make the cab area quite secure.
There is a lockable external aluminium box that houses the steel, 2 gallon spare fuel can, Hi-Lift jack and a fitted tyre inflating compressor, with a little room left over for a tow rope, tools etc.
Also within this box is a separate compartment that houses the 2 “Optima” batteries, split charge relay and fuse box.
The spare wheel carrier can easily be removed totally if required by removing two bolts and one retained pin, or if the pin alone is removed the wheel can be swung up on the carrier to allow free use of the rear mounted winch which has a remote control operating switch.
The whole front section of the car is hinged and can be tipped forwards making for easy access to front suspension, steering, engine etc.
