wow, they look great!

love the way they curl up round the sills.

how do they fix to the chassis? i can see the bolt through the bottom, do you have the same at the top, or did you have to drill holes?

thats just how I like em Very Happy  keep em up as high as possible but make sure they cover the easily damaged bits Wink , got to say it made them at least twice as long to make though Rolling Eyes

with regards to fixings exactly as you say matey, bolt at the top over the chassis railthen run a piece of 8mm plate donw the inside nd sandwiched the them onto the chassis Very Happy  Very Happy

not witht he tree sliders on unless you want to pay plenty, can probably get some standard ones made up but they would be another 80mm further out so they would sit in similiar position to the tree slider bars Wink

did you have problems fitting the top bolt?  or do you have a body lift?  as there is very little space between the top of chassis rail and the body of the vehicle.
i must get round to ordering steel and trying to make my sliders
