rostige Yes, I thought for a second...Rebar? A little bit hillbilly..or in this case Gopnik...but it kinda makes sense because its easy to grab. With the interlocking teeth on the edges I had to figure what's the best way to install it on the side of a vehicle? The side against the vehicle needs teeth out because it would scratch whatever it's laying against. If You stack them and put the outside mat with teeth out it would be a snag magnet and not too kind if a person brushed against it. Therefore, the teeth are facing each other. Even without the anti-rattle plastics I still need to fabricate I could not hear them rattling...at least not against the V12 engine

TRUKTOR You might be able to skip the pad lock on those. Anybody that is of a mind to steal one of those, let alone a pair of them, will probably get about a half a block before they drop them, unless they are upper crust thieves with a vehicle....but with thieves, you never know.

Rebar is always so elegant, and I mean that in a good way.

Square peg with a round hole for PSP

I am able to load these 63 lbs...10 feet long- 2 per side without trouble.

TRUKTOR Here are some other mounts that I came across, and some photos of the original Military PSP / Marston Mat, fresh from a temporary airfield somewhere, where the thunder of a Merlin or a Pratt & Whitney Double Wasp is a very faint memory.

rostige BLECH! There is the taco you were talking about. The weight rating would be better expressed in axle weights? Could you put one axle on the double welded that is 20,000 lbs? (10 ton)? That would be impressive! and not really that heavy in itself.
But between a rover and the 401/411 driven by a homunculus....I'll take the homunculus in the mog for 200 points.
I have a stigma with that Brit stuff...Lucas Prince of Darkness etc.

TRUKTOR This fellow is short, or he has a short torso, has a huge head...and maybe they have lowered the seat into the floor, and they have chopped the windshield...lowrider style,

but he is styling along with his Sand Ladders (Sand Bleche).


That Green Rover 110 above has got me wound up....I like the looks of that thing.

tkv000 I've never driven in sand but I want those just to have the cool mounts

TRUKTOR Just to round out the record- they have three versions : Standard / Reinforced (doubled strip welded down the centerline), / and Double Welded, which consists of two complete panels which are edge welded together . The weight ratings are included below.

Some more photos.

TRUKTOR In their photos on the map, they have the outer donut flipped the wrong way around, compared to how they are installed.

These mounts are 70 Euros for the Pair.

OK, back to work.

rostige Those are sexy right there. I made steel square thick wall pegs with 3/4 inch nut thread flush welded at the end. I don't think the aluminium would last long with the 40,000 lb. Tatra. I even have doubts about the steel PSP...If I use it improperly. They are 10' long and weigh 63 lbs. each. T shaped retaining bolts made w some rebar. I have to watch my width as I'm right at 102 inches. I still need a plastic or rubber donut to fit over the end to give each hold added tension. Pictures when I get a chance.
