They are for if you get bogged the navigator has somewhere to stand and bounce the rear of the car to help with traction. There are handles on the rear mudguards to hang on to also.

Not really Justin, hopefully about two or three weeks the rear will be finished. That will give me the main body while a couple of jobs get finished on the doors.

Yes weight reduction. The previous car had fibreglass bonnet,boot,front guards,bootlid and door skins and lexan windows. It saved about 50 kg all up. Can’t really use them now, they are not considered “safe”. We also used alloy roll cages but they were made illegal so now we use 200kg steel cages.
