Hi Sanjay,

I must say you are taking a very thoughtfull approach and doing everything very slowly and steadily. The outcoming is looking very nice. Where in mumbai are you getting these installations done and are you designing these yourself?

Thanks Desmosedic and nitin_80

@Desmosedici, For this fabrication project, I got references from internet, some processes were not possible under one roof. So I have done all these things at 6-7 locations, and assembled at one place.

Your best bet is a spare wheel based rack - kind of like this Thule.

Hey Sanjay, neat job.
BTW where is this place in the last pic? I can see you trying to disengage the 4wd, looks like you did some offroading last weekend...

Hi Sanjay,

Just went through the entire fabrication process for the Swing Out Tyre carrier. Great job done sir.

As regards the Cycle carrier, I agree with Nitin, Thule is your best bet. It is removable, doesn't occupy much place when removed.

PRE MANSOON WORK

Hi Guys,
I started some Pre - monsoon work, I want to apply bed liner or Epoxy paint on my Jeeps floor. Today I got this material ( below pic ) but don't have idea how it is.
If any one from our group used it before, please share experience.

Sanjay

Sanjay, how is the rockslider bolted to the chasis? Did you drill any holes? I am planning to fabricate a rockslider and I could not find holes for that.

Do you have any photos of how it is bolted to the chasis?

Very well fabricated swing arm. Workman ship too good. Fabricator myself I would love to have such a skilled worker. I liked the welding part. It looks like seam welding. Have you weighed the whole assemble. Please keep that also in mind. Chassis is more important.

Hi Narendra,
Thanks !
Yes I have weighed it before two years, but I don't remember now what was its weight.
I like skillful and finish work, so I always work with skilled workers and get my project done.

Hope whatever I shared about "Swing arm fabrication project" should be helpful to those who want to make it for themselves.



Regards
Sanjay
