Introducing Adventure Corp GU Patrol Wagon/Coil UTE Rear Panhard Brace Plates, the perfect solution for reinforcing and enhancing your vehicle's panhard mount.

Crafted from 4mm 350mpa Australian milled mild steel, these brace plates are designed to be welded directly onto your GU Patrol Wagon or Coil UTE. Our commitment to exceptional fitment is evident in our meticulous process, which includes 3D scanning each vehicle and utilizing CAD software to construct the brace plates with remarkable precision, accurate to 0.05mm. The result is a high-quality product that guarantees a perfect fit every time.

To ensure a successful installation, we recommend following our recommended fitting procedure:

1. Lay the GU Patrol Wagon/UTE Rear Panhard Brace Plates over the panhard mount and mark their placement using chalk or a paint pen. Note that the smaller plates for the front and rear sides may require clamping or bending to match the mount's contours.

2. Prepare the welding area by grinding off a slightly larger section to ensure a clean surface.

3. Apply a quality weld-through primer to the panhard mount and all surfaces of the brace plates, such as the front, back, and sides. Our preferred choice is the "Upol Weld #2 Weld Thru Copper Primer."

4. Secure the Adventure Corp GU Patrol Wagon/UTE Rear Panhard Brace Plates in their final position using clamps, ensuring a gap-free fit.

5. Follow a staggered welding technique, typically welding an inch and then skipping an inch. Prior to welding, mark the designated weld areas around the plate's perimeter using a paint pen. Please consult with an engineer as some may prefer partial welding rather than fully welded brace plates.

6. Once the welding process is complete and has cooled, apply a high-quality body sealer between the welds to prevent water, dust, and dirt from penetrating between the brace plates and the existing panhard bracket.

7. Lightly sand the brace plates to remove any bubbling or imperfections in the primer caused by welding. Apply another coat of primer to seal the area.

8. Choose a high-quality paint of your preference to coat the brace plates, ensuring a durable and visually appealing finish.

9. After the paint has dried, apply a rust preventative, such as fish oil, to the inside of the panhard bracket. This additional measure helps protect against potential internal rust in the future.

Note: The above instructions serve as a general guide. We strongly recommend seeking professional vehicle engineering advice before undertaking the installation to ensure compliance with safety standards and regulations.
