Whats the purpose of the ropes from roof to bonnet? Are they to cut away foilage and bushes which can foul the windscreen? If so, how effective is such an attachment.

Not to cut. It's basically to slide away bigger branches up and above the roofline.

Allan,

Can you give more gyaan on how to calculate what gauge and diameter of pipes to use for the roll cage? Also are you cold bending the pipes?

I remember seeing her in action during the OTR. Was fabulous!

Really liked the color on the Discovery.
Also the painted boards look better compared to the earlier Landy discovery.

Superb finish as usual Allen. Love the matt finish, overall looks good, what are the mods to mechanicals (if any)?
