Hey there Peeps!!

Have been scratching my head trying to find online someone that makes a panel replacement for the rear barn door inner card panels and change them out for fold down shelves.

Its abit hard to explain but my mate has made some for his troopie and they work a treat!! Really handy for setting up the cooker for dinner.... Anyways if anyone might be able to point me in the right direction that would be great!!

Thanks

Just make your own, or go to a local sheet metal shop and get them to make them.

Thanks for the reply guys!!

Thats just the issue though.... Dont have a man shed to make it in nor a workshop at work that I can manufacture something like that....

No worries, i'll sort something out :-)

Don't go removing your "card" trims off your doors. The dust entry will kill you!!!!!!

Other than adding a bit of trim colour to your doors, those "card" trims and more importantly, the plasctic water shed behind them are paramount to keeping the dust at bay and water out during downpours.

All you need is a sheet of stainless around 3mm thick, a hinge and a short strap.

There is also this mob, but they don't appear to have one for 76 series at this stage...

As this would likely be a custom job it may help to know where you live to recommend a workshop nearby.

Hi Scottee B

I will admit I have had a couple of "Bundy's" (Read a few )!! LOL

But if I have got it wrong please explain ??

"Your mate" has already done a similar mod to his vehicle !!
" And it works a treat " !!!
Why not get him to help you do your Mod ??
Instead of paying commercial prices !!!

Have I missed something ??

By the way I did a similar mod to my 100 series LC Barn doors
and yes it is a great advantage.

Good luck with it
Barry

Hey Barry...

Thanks for your reply!! Wish I could have a couple of bundy's under the belt instead of being at work...

In answer to your question, my mate that has the fold down table in troopie is actually driving around oz and I caught up with him in the south west. So unless he carries around with him a portable workshop, I think getting him to help me might be out of the question...

But I should stop being a lazy arse and just make one! How hard could it be - couple of bits of ply, hinges, straps and some marine carpet!!!

Being a FI/FO, I cant be arsed working when Im home... But this shouldnt be rocket science!!

Hey Scottee B

Tell your mate to stop traveling around Aus and help you out " Its more important " !!
He can't have all the fun !!

As far as when you are home on R & R and need to work on the 4x4 it's called R & R.
It's all for the greater good us blokes need to unwind, what better way than making our 4x4 a more capable chariot for " Family Hols " plus a couple of frothies to help us think straight ???? LOL

I'm sure you are capable of such a mod for your 4x4.
