Ha! I know that picture.....believe it or not I was looking at them all today. Hi mate, do you remember me (aztec), I asked you to send me photos of how you did your seats ages ago (2 years maybe)? Seems like a long time ago anyway. I think there were only 3 of us that had 'milatarised' our jeeps back then and now it looks to have become very popular - there are some fantastic photos on here now that rather put mine to shame :-) Great stuff.

Just popped back for a look around and it seems to have all changed, had to re-register to get back on too. All looks very exciting now. I've still got the old Indian Army one but couldn't resist buying a second that I'm in the process of doing up and turning into an Iraqi army replica kitted out for desert action - I'll send some pics once it's a bit more complete.

So glad you remember me - you were a great source of help and inspiration. It wasn't really the seatbelts I was asking about when you sent me all those photos but rather to find out just how you modified your Willys seats to fit in the Mahindra. Well, following your example they worked perfectly - thank you. I don't expect you recall but I only live in Essex so maybe I'll come up and pay you a surprise visit one day :-)

Cheers m8

very nice pic's :good: i quite like how you've mounted the spade :cool: , better than notching the tub out and welding some tube in like i have been thinking about for a while , a very good plus point of having a 540 , as it has room to do that unlike on the brave .

Yup, the simple truth is, if Keith did it that way, then that was the right way to do it . . . :good:

yes thats mount i'm planning on using :good: but with the bulldog spade i have ( very strong bit of kit ) , i would need to notch the side of the tub out like on a mb / gpw etc because if not it makes the handle stick out a mile , i have a shorter handle military spade for a jeep but it looks a little lost on the side of a 540 :unsure:
