    Any Engineers in this forum?

    Howsit,

    Looking to make a Aluminium Checker plate hardlid for my Ranger. Done all the measurements and will need to buy all the matrials, but dont have the tools to put together (welding, grinding, drilling etc etc).

    If theres anyone that can help, would be much appreciate.

    (Similar to The Hunters Club Amarok tray lid)

    Mate if you want the best then there is only one place. Thats Roadrunner Manufacturing in Bulls.

    Yep sorry a bit of a plug there- would be more than happy to price it up for you. I guarantee two things 1, If i am able to build it-it will be quality and do what you want to. 2, It will be 100% NZ made.NOT imported

    Flick me a email if you want to discuss it further. nick@roadrunnerltd.co.nz
    Carpe Diem, BobGibson and Tommy like this.

    Ended up just putting a wildtrak cover on instead as was easier and cheaper. You'd bee looking at 1500-2000 to get one made (ute master lid)

    Yeh, my son's got one and he's happy with it but their claim of waterproof isn't true in his case.
