Almost running out of mods to do

Finally fitted that bullbar Smile



Next mod I want to do is a walk-on bonnet.... anyone got any ideas on how to strengthen the current bonnet?

haha, I like that!!! Laughing Rolling with laughter

Well, when the roofrack is loaded then walking on the bonnet to reach just makes life a hundred times easier!

I don't think that there's enough clearance under the bonnet to add enough strengthening, which it would need to stop it denting under the weight.

What about a wheel step? Not really the same as standing on the bonnet, but it helps. Something like this:

 2006 D3 HSE (Original & still the best)-GONE
2010 D4 HSE (A bit bling)-GONE
2014 D4 HSE (Almost too bling)-GONE
2015 D4 HSE (A heated what?)-GONE
2016 D4 Landmark (Written Off)-GONE
2016 D4 Landmark (Surely the last!) 18" Compomotive PD1881 rims.
