Its terrible the way admin abuse their privileges and penalise you lovely fundraisers.

Ps. Anyone want a really really nice d2!

Admin: 100 points deducted for the use of "really nice" and "d2" in the same sentence.
Doh - can't deduct points from a Marshall  - penalty is escalated to no pies on a Monday

well had a week off with the run up to Christmas so i go on and sorted one of the weaknesses in the rzr.

well its designed to be an solo off roader so perfect in every way except the protection of the radiator.

its pretty weak to say the least



and with us being surrounded by big trucks we dont wont to be out with a small stone in the rad.

so draw out a center design



then cut and shape



test fit (with a little trimming here and there)




spend three hrs marking and punching all the holes



the spend two days drilling around the wife giving you grief over the state of the kitchen hahahaha

then a bit of primer



then cover with some strong load bed paint so it got a bit of impact protection

and you have a nice strong rad cover that should keep out the rocks hopefully



now i just need some red and white hi lights to make the badge stand out.

now to get on and finish fitting this



to get this fitted




cheers for looking

Very neat Mr C. Great that you've tested is and all is fine - would be a shame to have to switch off your air-con on the rally!  sunny 

Onwards and upwards.  cheers

Sorry, but the plastic box is definitely NOT an acceptable solution although I'm unable to offer alternative suggestions  Rolling Eyes

Would a small ammo box give you the protection for it and the electrics or fiber glass? scratch scratch 
If push comes to shove use the plastice box ignore rest of them.  Twisted Evil

so the new year is here and we been hard at it again, so we discussed the fact that the rzr doesn't have doors and there fore is lacking a location for the door numbers. so we came up with these. so what do you guys think??







they still need a few bits doing and then ill tidy the edges and give them some paint so they dont stand out.

also been working on the cb still unsure if i'm going to go with this or not.



and this is finished

Looking good, if I may, I will have a closer look at it on the rally.
Pity about the plastic box, I liked it! Laughing

Just noticed a potential problem. Your cb looks like a uk40 channel unit.
Normally the rally uses uk band in uk then switches to eu band when over the water. Unless it has been modified your cb wont have the eu band.

Best check with hq that nothing's changed but if its the same as last year you wont be able to speak to anyone.

Note for Organisers: apologies if this could be considered helpful. I promise i wont do it again. Please dont sack me.
