too much time on my hands, so i did this

they say that the devil creates work for idle hands, well in this case it's the landrover that creates the work.
i knocked up a light/roof bar from disco oe uprights, cut and re-shaped with a new clamp and a bar from halfrauds.(although i have no lights to put on it!)

i also made a solid shelf in the rear that holds my tents, sleeping bags and mats for 4. previously i had a storage net, but found cramming the bags in it too much hassle. so the shelf is 18mm ply with an alloy 'u' section on the leading edge to prevent damage and splinters. it rests on the window frame and i had to push one of the frames out to fit it on top. there's no way its moving. easier to pack and unpack.

So how much do you want to sort mine then?? ;)

Nice one mate. I should be starting work on my 110 in a month or two once we have moved...need to get her running again :(
 
it's taken me an age to come up with this solution. i used to have te sleeping bags in their own stuff sacs and the sleeping mats rolled up and stowed under the middle seats. now i roll the bags and mats up as one and have them in larger, compression dry bags atop the shelf. like an australian swag. makes setting up and packing away a lot simplier and quicker.
