FS: Offroad Overland Custom Parts

1. Name: Arch2b.
2. Location: Germantown, Maryland
3. Contact: e-mail thru forum e-mail.
4. Description:
Custom rear bed canopy with spare shock mount
Custom front brush guard
Custom Rear spare tire mount
Custom roof rack
Custom light rack with 5mm 8000mcd leds
Custom scale toe rope
5. Price: $30 +/-.




these parts were hand crafted before i had kids so they are done with utmost care, skill and quality. each made from brass stock/tubing with 3 coats of textured paint. i dare say you will be hard pressed to find better quality scale hand made accessories i have accepted the fact that i have a better chance at winning the lottery than completing this project

the light rack includes leds, completing hte wiring etc, will be left to you. you can use it or not. the setup looks just as good without it.

the brush guard is brass tube so it's durable to a point. it also attaches via 2 screw points so it should not fall off unless you break the screw posts out of the brass tube. if by some small chance this happens, you can reheat the tube and melt the screws back into the solder slug holding htem in.

the rear bed canopy was made to fit a custom cut land cruiser body. it should be easy to replicate the cut lines for the body using this peice. cut a bit short so you can grid it down for an perfect fit. cut some very thin lexan, fold, cut and glue to cover the back. this peice is attached to the new rear bed via 1 screw mount which doubles as a spare shock mount. i will include 4 gpm alloy shocks to mount on this.

the spare tire mount is attached via 2 screw points. i will provide the screws but you have to drill the holes in the desired location. i offset the mount to hold super swamper tire so there should be plenty of room for large custom tires.

the tow rope is small guage yellow rope with fish eye hooks cripmed to the ends.

you can see the build gallery here.

NO tires are included. i do not have any left to give.

yes, i will send overseas. please email me and i'll get a shipping quote for you.

i'm sorry but i do not have the land cruiser body i sent it to get painted by a professional and i never got it back. it should not be difficult to duplicate though. i documented the build well so you can see exactly where and how i cut mine. you will also have the canopy frame to get a closer match. i cut my body and built the frame to match so you would just ahve to do the reverse.
