May need a larger master cylinder with those and some soft grippy tyres.

Nice seat wedges you could have put under seat stowage draws or an opening lid in those  for some where to hide stuff when parked.

Looking good, nice colour, but you'll find that your screen is on back to front. The groove in it should go to the front, it's for attaching a soft or hard top to should you want one at a later date.

an unusual lift kit but I think it needs bigger wheels on.

Roll hoop came from flatlands back in 2014 not sure if he is doing buggy stuff any more. It's only really cosmetic.
It's stainless exhaust tube 1.2 -1.5 mm wall there is an outfit A44 exhausts in Worcester sure it's something they can do depending where you are in the world
