IBEX F8 300 5 DOOR POPOSAL


We are currently planning the next production batch which will include a number of long wheelbase vehicles. This image shows the Ibex F8 300S 5 Door Station Wagon. The first of these vehicles will delivered towards the end of this year and early 2011.

As with the short wheelbase, the rear part of the body can be removed and replaced with a hard top, pick-up or soft top arrangement.

2.4 TDCi engine is a snug fit. Just some wiring and fuel lines needed to make it run. Most of the trim is ready and the drop side body is just a few days away.

I am pleased to say the black detail is working well with the red!

IBEX 400 Post Paint




Because it can be quite easy to miss a 6m long Ibex, we have painted it the brightest red we could find.

Some body panels dry fitted before boding in place with polyurethane adhesive. The adhesive acts as a barrier between the zinc and aluminium to prevent electrolytic corrosion. Bonding the panels in place also adds to the overall stiffnes of the structure.
