I don't have the Rover back yet. Just 3 pictures that the shop sent me. Here's one from the front waiting for the Warn 9000i to come in.
Yes, that's a puma hood. 😎

Well done! Looks good as new, or rather as it was... better than new. Good save!

New full SD cage? Awesome! Nothing like a near catastrophe to up the survivability quotient! Good call and good looking!
