    What did you make today ?

    seeing a few ppl fabricate some gear I'd thought this may be a usefull thread.
    Anyway this is what I made a while ago, serves two purposes, one is as a step the other is two fold
    great for touch parking and protects the back a little coming off ledges etc.
    the finish is zinc, just slides in any class 2 tow hitch,
    great for shins too lol

    Nice! Don't have any pics, but I put a couple of plates on the bottom of my rear mudguards, they were coming a little to close to the 35's. There's a small chain connected to the plates and hooked to the rear guard. I can adjust where the mud guards sit, if im off road I pull them up a bit higher.

    Its not metal fabrication and I didn't make it today (a couple of months back I think) but I did make this.

    A secure table top for the portable BBQ to use it as a table when not in use. It has tabs underneath the top that fits inside the lip of the BBQ to stop it moving around.

    Just about to jump into my next Patrol. A 2001 GU II TB45E .

    WARNING!: Do not ever use a towball as a recovery point. They are not rated and can become a deadly projectile during a recovery if they snap off, and they have done so with tragic results in the past.

    Might be a bit off level, trying to balance it on the vertical post, get it near level and weld was a challenge.

    So you might be right LOL. Might do it again as it was the first one. Bit like a one arm paper hanger on stilts doing it on my own.

    Try another pic...

    That looks awesome 3D exactly what i was thinking of making (although wouldn't have been near as good). Would have been good on the trip just done, i just left the tow hitch in and used that but do like that step. You still making any by any chance. . .

    Nah that was just a one off but easy enough to make, hardest part if you call it that
    is bevelling the bottom edge and filling it in, I used 50x6mm flat, still have it somewhere lol
    This might help
