Labour of love

So the L200 con­tin­ues apace. In fact, it’s stretched slightly past the con­straints of a monthly mag­a­zine, and is prob­a­bly a lit­tle fur­ther on than I can talk about here. Af­ter ster­ling work by the team, we now have a full exo-cage by Pro­tec­tion and Per­for­mance, now with a lit­tle sil­ver on black pearl/fake cour­tesy of Dave the Paint.

Su­perPro sus­pen­sion is on, mod­ifed from a heavy-duty set-up pop­u­lar in Aus­tralia ap­par­ently, as are the chunky tyres and Speed­line wheels. Brad has got the arches sorted – with help from his rod-build­ing fa­ther – and Ralph has been var­i­ously wiring, bend­ing, shap­ing, hit­ting things with ham­mers and drink­ing lethal quan­ti­ties of PG Tips. There are a LOT of Laz­er­lamps LED lights on board, and plans are afoot to mount the large quan­tity of GoPro mounts, as well as the wing, which will con­tain a drone. Phew.

L200 now has the king of roll cages and pretty lights
