    Default Wanted 404 Nudge Bar or Bullbar photo

    As the title says....
    I probably have to think about making something for a 404 and I dont want anything large, horrible or intrusive,
    something small, tidy and in lines with the 404 looks.
    Looked on forums and google images and found nothing.
    Even a link to something nice would be a help.
    Thankyou Bob

    Here's one that's large, horrible and intrusive: REPCO RELIABILITY TRAIL 1979: Entrants 101-150

    There's a taxi style bar further down the page that probably smashes the ADRs as well.

    I had a 'roo bar' made for my '69 404 to take on a west/east trip in the mid '70's. Still had a lengthy section of dirt then.
    It used the front jacking points on the chassis as its main support. The overall styling followed the bonnet front edge, looping up on both sides to protect the headlights. The lower bar was level with the bumper. Two brackets for a Lucas Flamethrower and a waterbag!
    Additional support in the form of two bars, one per side, angled back to the side bumper bolts. Undo these and the whole caboodle slipped out of the jack supports. Oh, these were duplicated on the roo bar.
    I think it would have provided minimum protection but ask yourself, do you want a pristine roo bar with a demolished Peugeot behind or....?

    Reading the '79 Repco horror stories I well remember the Bordertown bog. The almost modellers clay mud built up under our Volvo's wheel arches. As a service "screw" member it fell to a couple of us scooping the mud out, progress would have been impossible otherwise. This was only the beginning of the event, still with the rest of Aus. to get around!

    There's a better photo of the Dakar P404 here: Deserts and dunes: The Dakar | Retro Rides It's entirely below the lights, but more élégant than the others.

    Well Seasink, thankyou for your input.
    Nothing grabs me yet but something may pop up.

    I think it would have provided minimum protection but ask yourself, do you want a pristine roo bar with a demolished Peugeot behind or....?.......Wildebeest the reason for a bar of some description is simply that we live in a wallaby infested country area.
