    Accessories?

    I'm looking for some inspiration for some accessories to make. Mind showing them?

    I guess it depends how you plan to make them. I'm not really interested in the 3D printing side, so I made a few things with Balsa wood - remember that!?

    For our two Defenders I made "vintage" travel trunks, complete with genuine reproductions of old (famous) hotel labels, a selection of jerrycans, and a tool box, all Balsa. I made a ridge tent out of canvas, which stows on the roof rack along with the poles etc., and a couple of traction "boards" out of some metal grill material I had knocking about. Ropes etc are easy.... And, I printed my own rally/expedition/advert plaques and signs, on waterproof, self adhesive vinyl sheet.

    A few photos:







    And, we did buy a few things as well!

    Depends on if you want static or functional accessories...

    Static accessories are ok, but I tend to lean towards the functional...

    Here are brackets for holding a winch anchor and tow rope...

    Functional, but static... Spare tireholder...

    Iíve tried to make that out of styrene before... didnít work out well, wouldnít close well and the tent was just ugly. I might do a 3D printed 2.0. version, but my tent making skills are terrible.

    Wow! That’s really nice looking! I might give balsa wood a try, I remember it being pretty easy to work with compared to styrene.
