I painstakingly added feet and front and rear light tabs. This was not fun and did not go well at all. However, I did manage to get some distorted and crooked feet onto the rack. The light tabs are pretty good, but I have not installed lights yet. That's when I will find out how wonky they are on there.

I have not decided if I want to make brackets for the feet like pagedm_f350 did for his Defender rack. I would not hesitate if my gutter was molded part of the body, but it's not. It has already come loose in one spot where my plastic welding did not take sufficiently. We will see later what I decide.

Anyway, I got the roof rack all cleaned up, ground down, primed then painted throughout the week. The rack is satin black and the flooring is flat black.

Here's the pics:



Oh yea, I decided to go ahead with the zip-ties to secure the flooring to the rack. It is what I have on my 1:1 and it looks fine here too.







My photos will be a bit better from now on as I am able to use my studio equipment to make progress shots. I needed to go one stop down on the camera though.

Got the rock sliders coming up next.

Cheers,
-Steven

I really thought long and hard on how my rock sliders were going to work. I wanted them to hold the body from moving. I wanted them to look like my real sliders on my truck. I was going to make a "J" channel so that my body would fit in, but decided it was not necessary. Withe the posts coming from the frame rails and connecting to the top of the bottom plate of the slider, I basically still have the same result.

I am very happy with how these turned out. Now I just need to finish grinding them down and paint.











Cheers,
-Steven

Wow! That roofrack is amazing! You really had me fooled with that. I thought it was a 1:1 until you stuck it on the body.
Anyway, this build is fantastic so far. I can't wait to see what you have next!

It's going to be zebra striped just like my 1:1. Look at the very fist post of this thread to see the scheme.

Thanks for all the compliments everyone on the rack. I bet I have 10 hours just in fabricating in that thing.

Speaking of racks... How ever is my driver going to access the goodies on top?

Stay tuned!
