Well we finally took delivery of our first MEV Rocket for assembly.
It’s out of the bubble wrap and the additional parts have been ordered.
Watch this space for our build updates.
There’s probably other bits I’ve neglected to mention but here is the finished article in all her glory.
Once completed it was put on the ramp for final check over, the chassis was treated internally with Dinitrol wax oil, all panel seams touched up with more Dinitrol. If that wasn’t enough protection everything excluding brakes was given a clear coat of ACF50
Two LED work lights were fitted to either side of the roof and are operated by a switch on the dash.
The spare wheel is mounted using a ManTec spare wheel carrier which opens with the back door but which is supported by the body so as not to damage the rear door.
Black tread plate was fitted to the wings with Air force vents and tread plate on the bonnet.
A cubby box was installed in the matching Land rover upholstery.
A high level brake light fitted. New speakers in the rear quarters
Side steps mounted along with colour coded rock sliders, the step brackets were adjusted to sit a little lower so the steps could actually be used and rose jointed braces made to enhance looks and stronger than originals.
The towbar electric socket was mounted in the rear chassis for neatness and protection.
A seal was fitted between the wheel arches and body to add detail.
The front & rear seats were re upholstered using the Ex Moor trim kits. A pair of new foam bases and backs were covered with Land Rover covers. OME heated pads were fitted under the new covers.
