that was a consideration! But seriously the SWB needs a soft top and stereo. The former is sorted, now to kill the 300TDI noise and get that safety factor

Really need to thank D90 for helping me source all the additional parts I needed to mount my cage. Thought it would take longer than 24 hours! Thanks D-source!

Any chance of posting pics and narrative of the conversion? I'd love to do that setup in the near future. Thx.

Good chance since it looks like I will be removing the rear bulkhead and doing the full underbody and W bar attachment points.

going to be a fair amount of work, figure I will rhino-line the bed (or equivalent when I am done) since re-painting it will be a lot of work and ultimately I plan on doing something different in the rear (puma forward facing seats on custom loadspace liner)

I think I will have the clearance with my filler neck to fit the underbody bar, anyone with a 90ST want to snap some underbody photos?

Here is a 90SV, they didnt have the NAS tub, looks like it all fits. But I have no idea how their fuel tank compares to yours, or if they even use the under body bar.

Yes the under body bar fits very close to the wheel hubs and looks like it would slip past the fuel filler.

I am hopeful, I need to address the rear wiring and I think some line-x would help with road noise in the back as well. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is a straightforward install
