Front end looking nice and strong, without being to heavy!

Thanks man. Shouldn’t be that much different to before weight wise for the whole thing.

the old rear bed was built on 8mm mounts, which where heavy, and the steel bed where I’d repaired it was also quite heavy.

The old front bumper was two made into one, so in areas was over 14mm thick, was so heavy for what it was.

The front wings have had an awful lot of material removed as well and thin steel has been used for the inner wings.

So I’m fingers crossed hoping it’s not all massively heavy !
