The Fuel Tank Guard being clamped on the rear axle, would it articulate along with the axle? What is that plate thats been supported by the jack?

The fuel tank guard doesn't seem to be clamped to the rear axle.
What is clamped to an axle is the transmission/underbody guard (tubes), and it is clamped to the front axle/diff housing, which is directly fixed to the chassis/body (IFS), hence no worry of articulation.

I guess, that is the fuel tank guard (10mm aluminium plate).

amazing work going on.

Look forward to the final product.

How much time do you expect it will take to finish the first level of changes before you take the beast on the road /slush ?

Allan, as always the modifications seem to be well thought before implementation. 10 mm thick Aluminium should be able to provide sufficient protection as well as light on weight. The fabrication quality also looks good considering the difficulties in welding aluminium.

hey allen, that scorpio is taking on good make-over by the best in the business! good work.

i have attached a photo about the front bumper/right front fender and the front right tyre, is this gap (circled red in the photo) a point of concern for the articulation?

Thanks @Blue Thunder. I have not yet seen the undersides of a 4x4 scorpio so I thought this axle housing to be the live rear axle. Now it makes sense.

Do measure the weight of the Scoprio after all this protection.

Good Job Allan. The use of aluminium is very clever. It will keep the weight down!

Waiting for the finished product!

Cheers
