When I did mine, I used some plastic arches that were intended for a Transit tipper:

Landy Andy of this parish fitted Defender arches to his, but he made a complete overlay for each trailer side that was profiled to suit:

Ok so as I had the arches, I've sprayed them and fitted one with 4 bolts / washers for now. Seem secure

Should this work ok?

I've bought some steel to see if I can fill in the gaps... ^ I cannot weld so need to find some way.

Don't think the overall look it too bad.

Still need to make a cover that opens....

I just bonded on alli sheet that I had cut with jigsaw. I cut so had extra material at wheel arches, then cut that so I could bend tabs inside to hold the arches on.

Landy Andy, I like the way you've added material underneath as well. Makes it all fit together nicely

I had my tame welder stitch in some corner fillets

At some point I'll get round to adding the arches to mine Whistle 2007 - Stornoway Grey 90 XS SW - Gone

Ahh that image makes it clearer. You've over skinned the whole side of the tub? I had wondered how you'd got such a smooth looking finish Thumbs Up 2007 - Stornoway Grey 90 XS SW - Gone

I'm with you also, I could not see the joins...

Nice job, was it expensive for the sheet?

As for the sides cut out I will have a go.... not sure how to fix them..

Really cheap, and really easy.

Was about 15 each side. Pack of jiga blades, and some time with a file.

Used the wheel arch off a defender as the guide for cut out, then added about an inch onto that. I then cut it out and left the extra inch sections where the fixing studs for the arches were, and then bent them inward, so I could easy fix wheel arches.

I used the holes where the tie down cleats are so I could dry fit and use for marking out. Then when ready glued it on with tigerseal. Then bolted through the cleats, and where the side reflectors are.

Great Thumbs Up


Where did you get the alloy sheet from, and what thickness?


I doubt I can do this for now but worth looking into. Cheers

Having looked through this thread, I feel like the Sankey Facebook group is mostly filled with def2 members!

Ok so back from work and had a go at making a cover out of some steel and brackets.

This should make the corners better with the arches on.

3 more to make and spray..
