Wondering if anyone knows the best place to grab the bits and pieces that mount on the perentie bonnet:confused:

Shovel, pic, axe etc. Just trying to track down some gear that's close to the original stuff.

A good pic of a loaded perentie bonnet would be helpful!!

Do you have a 6x6 or a 4x4 Land Rover? I fix the dam things every day for the ADF, any pictures you need, just say the word.

Hello all,

I am very sorry if this is closed and finished but does anyone know the exact models of the tools i need to fit on the bonnet of the Perentie?
Cyclone is the brand, And i can get it from Bunnings. Just wanted to get the right parts.

Also does anyone still have the photos of the cyclone tools on the bonnet?

Thank you!

Are you going to be using them or is it just for show?

If you are planning on using them, I suggest the mattock may be more useful then a pick. Unless you want to go mining...

I got mine from Mitre 10. There was a shovel there half the price of the Cyclone that was good quality.

I sprayed all my metal in black rust proof paint and linseed oiled all the wood they came up really good.

Keep an eye out at swap meets & trash & treasure markets as well as places like Aussie Disposals.

Here are the tools on a Defender Tanami.

Depending on how 'original' you want it to be :-
The T-handled shovel came from Aussie Disposals (dated '58 from memory), mattock from a trash & treasure and the axe head was given to me and I fitted a new handle.

The Cyclone tools are all a fairly bright green which I wouldn't think would be something the ADF would be keen on. From the few photos I can find, it looks like the shovel blade and pick head are both black (if not fully rusted). In fact, some of the photos look like the entire tools have been painted black. For the lucky few who have found the tools still on their vehicles, what colour are they; all black, black blades/head with natural wood handles, olive drab?

Bit hard to see but they are not painted and are original wood handles with steel sections painted olive drab colour.

So cool, so jealous, has any other manufacture put tools on a civilian 4wd. It just shouts LR

Don't mean to be a spoilsport, but do they break pedestrian safety rules, like fishing rod holders? Wouldn't like to see you get fined by some over-zealous cop.
Also, would they be less likely to be stolen if on a roof rack? Just a thought...

I generally didn't leave the tools attached unless on a trip. The axe in particular would be good for breaking a window and stealing stuff on the inside.

IRC pedestrian safety ADRs were introduced in 1988. So they would be illegal on any vehicle newer than that.
WA authorities are making perentie owners remove the brackets before rego.

Yeah, I love the look, but I'd rather keep my tools away from prying eyes.

I've seen one up here (QLD) with an axe on the bonnet so I don't know if it is an issue here. I too don't really want to put tools on the bonnet all the time but would like to have a full set for when I go camping and then they should look the part

Just registered a perentie in SA - same restrictions here, had to remove all bonnet mountings :(

Hard to use those rules as a yard stick..

Authorities see a Perentie and an Exempt military vehicle being converted to civilian use...

So they like to make you comply with later rules...

Pretty close to an ADR solution for this issue, watch this space!

Don't forget the pedestrian safety rules were introduced to prevent pedestrians from injuring themselves as they walked past your car. Remember, rod holders are ok as long as you twist them behind the bumper. If they were intended for protecting pedestrians as they bounced over the bonnet of your car, there would be a lot of other things that are currently legal that should be removed i.e. roof racks, roof mounted lights, awnings, sun visors, etc.

Obviously I don't have a Perentie but I assume the brackets would mount up to a Defender bonnet equally?

I'd like to put a shovel and mattock or axe on my rig for trips.

If so can the brackets be obtained (given that people are saying they have to be removed for rego in some states)

I'd be equally happy with some repro ones don't need army originals.

Just thinking out loud, looking at possibilities etc.

Plenty on ebay, facebook etc. I have a spare set if you are genuinely interested.

And as long as it complies to the ADRs at the time of manufacture.

Remember, the civilian "Tanami" Landrover had bonnet mounted tools.

if I can pick up locally will be easier/ cheaper / less hassle, perhaps you could advise (or PM if you prefer) what would be the 'right' amount of money to pay for them.

The Tanami was a '95 model wasn't it?
If so, good because so is my Defender :)

Oh and I can't see any on ebay - I'm probably using the wrong search term. Any tips?

G'day Vlad. Sorry to leave you hanging there.
Got to the start of this year with too many things on the go and had to put some up on the shelf.
Maybe by christmas this year...

Ya gotta be quick.
Two sets popped up on facebook on the weekend. Can't find them now.
If you are really serious, I'll take some photo's and PM you on the weekend.
