Geepstar

We used 8mm Go-Kart ball joints for the steering linkage. There is a fair bit of play in the stub axle movement, so the addition of the ball joints will make sure the play is kept to a minimum.

A basic T bracket was made to hold the Jerry Can in place, 1" flat bar was used for this.
Then four brackets were welded up and attached to the Geepstar. These are to hold two british army 58 pattern kidney pouches (They come as a pair) on each side.

The front bumper was quick and easy to make, and just bolted to the underside of the Geepstar.
Cooling for the drive motors is important and for this purpose I purchased from 'Salop Music' a 1U rack mount cooling insert, which had to be cut down to size width way's to fit nicely.

I have chosen to significantly upgrade the recommended drive motors to 24 volt electric wheel chair motors, lots of torque and built in electronic brakes! Fabian @ www.fressonsportsmopeds.co.uk sourced these beauties for me and he comes highly recommended. He also has an excellent eBay shop.

The seating bulkhead has now had the cable tunnel hole added and the cooling vent secured with M5 bolts and Tee Nuts.

The cable tunnel that will house the power cables from the battery's to the speed controller and motors.
This shows the basic front bulkhead, holes for the steering column have yet to be cut out.

Bulkhead and cable tunnel mounted in to place.
On the plans supplied by 'Real Life Toys' the rear lights are mounted on to the back panel of the Geepstar, as we have added a spare wheel and a fuel tank, there is no room, so our only choice was to mount them underneath. We have used 12/24 volt LED lights that came supplied with flexible mounting brackets.

12 volts added and hey presto! I think they will do nicely.
For the windscreen, which I guess will actually spend most of it's time folded down we are using 12mm birch ply.
The windscreen held in place by my grandfather, no sorry my mistake, Wootton. All I need to do now is Route out the inside of the screen area so that some Plexi Glass can be easily secured in to place.
