Default My rear bumper protector thingy build

A bit of background info... I`m a transport contractor delivering mail, one of my daily tasks is to go fill up the parcel pickup locker downtown so I`ll be needing to load and unload one of these trolleys full of packets daily tipping the trolley in against the rear bumper (I don`t have any rear seats mounted inside)



Problem of course is doing this rubs onto the rear bumper chafing off the paint from the corners of the spare wheel dent/boarding step.



My first attempt was to try beat some diamond plate into submission and make corner protectors but lacking the tools and skills the fit was terrible so I ditched that effort and went with what I know.



A few mild bends to a 1" tube and some 3x30 flat stock for a frame...



...some diamond plate to cover...



...acid primer to prevent rust and some silver to coat...





...and bam we have a new rear bumper protector. Not a bad way to spend a saturday morning methinks. The lower cover plate still needs redone as I fudged up the angles trying to freestyle it and figuring out too late the offcut piece I`m working with is too small so figured I`d make SOMETHING out of it to cover the gap and make a pretty one later. The spare wheel mount holes will also be occupying a jerrycan later, I already have the can but the store had ran out of the mounts so need to order that online, and I need to source a new handle from somewhere as the finger trigger part has broken off so currently operating the mechanism through a wire loop sticking out of the hole, works fine but the jerrycan mount will be covering that so needs sorted at some point.

Thumbs up Neat looking luading area protector

Now that's thinking outside the box - raising the platform is a much tidier solution!

I take it you don't intend on carrying a spare wheel on the back door anymore then? or if you are you will need a damn big spacer which will stress the mounting points

No I don't even have the mount, the truck came to me without it. I will be mounting a jerry can holder onto the door once it comes in the mail so there will be 20-something kg hanging off the door but right off the surface so not a problem.
